Jack & Diana Brinkley - Sports Outreach Asheville, NC
Jack and Diana Brinkley grew up in Asheville, NC and first met in high school, where they were involved in school ministry. Eleven years after high school graduation they were married. They now have two daughters, Bekah and Anna. After high school, Diana went on to organize a campus ministry at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, and served as a song leader for summer camps. Jack’s call to ministry began by attending a national Christian sports camp at age 14. Fast forward 12 years later to a national coaches’ camp, and Jack became a born-again Christian. Four years later, he began sports ministry full time in Georgia. In 1988, Jack opened an area sports ministry office in Asheville, serving as the director. He also served as State Director from 1993-2000. Jack currently works in the Greater Asheville area. He promotes area rallies, outreaches, and sports clinics; recruits athletes and coaches to summer camps and mission trips; develops adult volunteer involvement and boards. Jack serves as a Bible teacher, Public Speaker, and Team Chaplain.
Charles & Bonita Davidson - MTW Mexico
Charles, originally from Asheville, N.C., was motivated to consider world evangelization through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ at Clemson University. Bonita, who grew up in LaGrange, Ga., attended the dental school at the Medical College of Georgia (DMD, 1983). During this time, she was deeply influenced by the ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Augusta, Ga., and felt the call to world missions. The Davidsons met and married in Columbia, S.C., in 1984. Charles received his M.Div. degree from Columbia International University in 1985 and was then ordained by Westminster Presbytery. In 1989 the Davidsons joined MTW with a call to the church-planting team in Lima, Peru. After 15 years in Lima, the Davidsons moved to El Paso, Texas, to join the MTW border ministry in education and mentoring. In 2012 they were invited to join the Northern Mexico team to serve out of Monterrey, Mexico, as a teacher and mentor of Mexican church planters.
Roger & Laura Dye - Director of Hispanic Ministries with Family Life Global - CRU
Roger grew up in Mexico, son of missionaries Dick and Ann Dye. Giving his life to the Lord as a child, Roger’s childhood was marked by his parents' ministry in the villages and a church planting movement in the cities. Roger graduated from CIU and holds an M.Div. from Covenant Seminary. Laura grew up in a Christian home and received Christ at age 15. She holds a B.A. from Covenant College and worked in Student Development at The King's College in Briarcliff Manor, NY. In 1992 Roger and Laura met while raising support as single missionaries. They married the same year. Roger pastored a church in Gastonia, NC, before going to Chile in 1998. Through sixteen years of church planting with Mission to the World in Chile, God led the Dyes to pursue biblical marriage education for church leaders throughout Latin America. The Dyes have four children: Deanna (1993), Isaac (1995), Hudson (2000), and Suzy Grace (2003). They currently reside in Winnsboro, SC, ministering throughout Latin America as well as the Hispanic communities of NC, SC, GA, and TN. The desire of their heart is to train church leaders to develop local marriage ministries that will reverse the tsunami of marriage crises throughout Latin America.

The Powlisons began serving on the foreign mission field in 1984 and are currently serving in Cusco, Peru. They serve with a team of several families in a combination of leadership training, church planting, clinic ministry, and the Josephine House orphanage. Ruth founded the Josephine House, a home for abandoned and abused children, in 2008. Approximately 80 children have been rescued from abusive and life-threatening situations by this ministry since its inception. Please pray for the Powlisons as they enter into many challenging areas to train and establish national workers in and around Cusco.
