One of the most important things any church can do is to support worthy missionary outreaches. We currently help to support one overseas missions, a preacher training school and a disaster relief agency.
Mike and JoAnn
Mike and Joann serve with the CMF church planting team in Tanzania in the areas of discipleship training and literacy development.
Mike developed his passion for discipleship when he and Joann served in South Korea in the early 1980s. He uses the Disciple Making Movement (DMM) style of training in the church planters course at the Training Center in Arusha.
Joann's desire is to see the vast majority of adults in rural Tanzania receive the opportunity to learn to read and write the national language of Swahili. She teaches participants in the church planter course who want to be teachers, and is also willing to offer workshops at different locations.
Mike and Joann were married in March 1981. They went to Tanzania in April 2012. Keystone started sharing regular support with the Noels in 2017
