Meet our Appalachian Conference Missionaries
These missionaries are credentialed with our conference.
Emmanuel Bible School in Monterrey, Mexico, was founded by dedicated Mexican leaders in 1961. It has prepared hundreds of ministers, pastors, evangelists, and Christian Education workers. It was Judith’s privilege to become part of this ministry in September of 1972, and she is thankful to IPHC WMM for providing the vehicle in which this calling has been carried out. Since 2011, Judith has reached even more people in the East Mexico Conference through extension classes on Saturday for people who work or study. She serves as secretary-treasurer of Emmanuel and is the local director at the Monterrey Campus. Last year, Emmanuel´s director worked hard to develop the same program of studies online, which has opened new doors.
Timothy serves the youth generation in Europe, for the sake of seeing young people come to Christ and young Christians take daring steps in their faith. As a leader with Jesus Revolution in Norway, he teaches and disciples young Christians in a full-year missions training program. God has placed in Timothy the desire to see the youth of Europe encounter the gospel of Jesus - living transformed lives in relation to Him. For this reason, he, a southwest Virginia native, is living in Oslo, Norway, and serving as a missionary to Europe.

South Africa (The Awakening)
At a young age, Whitney developed a desire to see hearts set ablaze for Christ and for the name of Jesus to reach the farthest parts of the earth. After serving as a Summer Intern in 2017, she joined The Awakening’s global staff in 2018 as Coordinator of Public Relations and Communication. Since then, Whitney has played an active role in the equipping, resourcing, and mobilizing of a generation. Now, she is excited to continue to do just that as she serves at The Awakening’s South Africa International Training Base. Whitney is dedicated to the discipleship of the youth and young adults across southern Africa and is expectant to see the fruit of the base team’s labor produce ministers and missionaries out of the region.
Greg and Latoya McClerkin
South Sudan & Kenya
Greg and Latoya are from Tennessee and serve in South Sudan. Greg oversees the Hope4Sudan compound, which includes a school, clinic, building projects, and the ministry of the church. Please pray that the McClerkins will continue to experience good health and safety. Pray that in 2020, they are able to expand their reach and that people will come to know the love of Jesus Christ through them.
Christopher & Alicia Dunlap
The Dunlaps’ mission is to touch the world for Christ by ministering to and discipling leaders and community members to foster spiritual, community, and economic growth. Christopher and Alicia both graduated from Emmanuel College with degrees in Agricultural Missions and Secondary Math Education respectively. Christopher is passionate about training, educating, and empowering leaders and pastors to influence their own people in their cultural contexts. Alicia is passionate about being with people and encouraging them in their relationship with Jesus, personal goals, passions, and calling. Christopher and Alicia will be serving alongside Kevin and Summer Sneed in Kenya where they will be teaching classes at East Africa Bible College, ministering in local churches, and assisting with girls’ and women’s ministries.

Since the summer of 2018, Elizabeth has known she is called to spread the gospel to the nations. Coming from a rich heritage of ministers, she felt led to attend and graduate from Holmes Bible College. It was at Holmes where she had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica and Guatemala with The Awakening. Those experiences allowed her heart to be receptive to God’s call on her life to missions. In the summer of 2021, she will walk in her calling by assisting The Awakening in Chile. For one year, she will be helping to plant an International Base. She has seen God bless her life as she has walked in obedience and in faith. Her prayer is to share the Good News of abundant life to the people of Chile, and that God will complete the good work that He has called her to this year and for many years to come.
