Jeff and Tonya oversee a growing community of 30+ churches in the Philippines for DOVE Mission International. They have been traveling from North Carolina, USA, to the Philippines multiple times per year for the past 21 years, but now sense the calling to be “all in” and make the Philippines home. They officially moved to the Philippines in July 2022.

Their greatest desire is to demonstrate God’s love in such a way that the lost come to know Christ and become passionate Jesus followers. Jeff and Tonya are dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commandment and Great Commission: to love God wholeheartedly, to love others relentlessly, and to go into the entire world making disciples. They accomplish this by reaching, teaching, and sending.

Their ministry in the Philippines includes:

  •   Church planting
  •   DOVE Leadership and Ministry Training School
  •   Pastoral coaching
  •   Homeless outreach (first aid, meals, and prayer)
  •   Feeding programs
  •   Rhythms of Grace, a Christ-centered exercise class that includes Scripture and praise music, led by Tonya
  •   Leadership conferences and seminars
  •   Next-generation leader mentorship (equipping youth to fulfill their calling)
  •   Tribal ministry (going into unreached areas)
  •   Leading and hosting short-term mission teams in partnership with Kids International Ministries
