Nathan & Tara Reichert
North Las Vegas, Nevada

Our mission is to exalt God through the establishment and growth of Las Vegas Bible Church. We desire that all of our effort – in worship, in evangelism, in edification, in doctrine, and in fellowship – might work together for the purpose of glorifying God.

TBM Missionary Couple
During our first two years in China we plan to make language and cultural acquisition our top priority. We plan on being the students rather than the teachers. After our first two years in China, the best description of ministry that we can see would be as church supporters training Chinese Christian leadership so that they can become more effective leaders and church planters. We feel that God is calling us to work primarily with believers, rather than unbelievers.
Derrick Smothers
Springville, Utah
Our group of people floated just several blocks south and rented out a storefront on Springville's Main Street. There, the church began to develop specific ministries to fit the needs of the church, such as the Kingdom Kids program--which has grown from 5-8 kids to its present-day attendance of 25-30 children between the ages of 5-12, every Wednesday night. It was also able to begin men's and women's Bible studies which drew the growing body of believers together through deeper fellowship and intimate time in the Word.
Mark & Mary Ann Bell
De Beque, Colorado

Our mission in De Beque, Colorado is to strengthen and grow a Christ honoring church by allowing the Lord to work through us to build relationships in the community. Also our desire is to advance the gospel message through teaching and intentional discipleship. We have seen God's leading and guidance in opening up opportunities to reach out to the community in many practical ways. Our prayer is that we will consistently show God’s love and grace to De Beque and its people and visitors.

Chaz & Kari Dull
Loja, Ecuador
Our desire is to reach Ecuadorian’s with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and establish Biblical, reproducing local churches with national leadership. We are passionate about seeing souls saved, lives changed and churches planted.
Daryl & Bethanie Thompson
Las Vegas, Nevada

Our mission and purpose, first and foremost, is that God is glorified: that He is accurately portrayed as He is through the proclaiming of His Word and through lives lived according to His will through the enabling of His Spirit.

Dave Koester
LaVerkin, Utah
David and Anikkia Koester joined the TBM family in 1995 with the goal of planting and establishing Christ-centered Bible teaching churches in Utah. Their mission is simply to be a light in the darkness of Mormon-dominated Utah and to proclaim salvation by grace through faith in Jesus alone, to a culture that strives to be good enough in their own efforts and righteousness.
Luke & Jodi Veldt
Mutilva Baja, Spain
The Veldts have been working on planting a church in Mutilva Baja, Spain (on the outskirts of Pamplona), since 2007. Their core group of believers is slowly growing, as is their involvement in the community.
Bruce & Donna Miles
LaGrange, Wyoming

As Tentmaker’s Director of Partnership Development, we are seeking to establish and maintain growing partnerships between T.B.M., its church-planting missionaries, and like-minded churches, providing a layer of support, counsel and encouragement between all three entities.

Paul & Bren Warner
Provo, Utah
Our mission is to serve God for His glory in the power of His Spirit by making followers (disciples) of Jesus Christ who are established under His Headship as self-sustained (i.e. self-governing, self-supporting, self-propagating, self-teaching) local church(s) in Utah through evangelizing unbelievers, equipping believers, and empowering servant-leaders.
Bob & Sherry Hollopeter
Tver, Russia

St. Petersburg Bible Church is the first church planted in this mission outreach and is located in the northwestern part of Russia near Finland. The second church is in the planning stage and will be located in Tver, which is six hours southeast of St. Petersburg, nearer to Moscow. 

Project History:
Jonathan & Bethany Koehn
Tarapoto, Peru

Jonathan & Bethany spent time in Tarapoto, Peru, working alongside of Delwin and Techy Fowler in the church plant until the Lord called them back to the United States.

Abisai & Julie Ahumada
McAllen, Texas

The Lord has called us to serve Him on both sides of the border of Texas and Mexico discipling youth and training godly leaders.

Ben and Sarah Cline
Spanish Fork, UT
The Beginning of Harvest Bible Church

Dear Friends and Family,

Well, the time is drawing near. We have been getting everything in line to begin regular Sunday services on April 23rd and no doors have been shut so far! As always, we are excited to see what God will do next! The Lord has blessed this work with many who are standing with us both in prayer and finances and for that we say thank you! You are a vital part of the ministry of Harvest Bible Church in Spanish Fork whether you live
John & LeeAnn Miles
Springville, Utah

Grace Bible Church was planted by Derrick and June Smothers in 1997. After thirteen years of ministry at Grace, they were called to move on to another ministry in August of 2010. John was the Youth Pastor at the church at this time. The Church began praying for a pastor to step into Grace. Little did we know what God had in mind for our family!
Raquel Ester Chavez
Tarapoto, Peru
We as believers know that God has saved us and given us eternal life because of His grace. We did not have to do anything because our works were as filthy rags in God’s eyes. But, what is grace? Growing up I never really understood what grace meant...
Bill & Tracy Coupe
Loja, Ecuador
We love the Ecuadorian people, and our desire is to present the good news of the gospel to many and to see hearts and lives transformed as they place their faith and trust in Christ alone. Through faithful teaching of the Word we are able to share the difference between being religious and having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Melanie May
Mbale, Uganda
The Lord has given me a passion for evangelism and a longing to love and teach the children of Uganda. Too many times I have seen the children neglected because they're perceived as being too young to understand the truth of the Gospel. Having been saved myself at a very young age, I am a firm believer in the ability of young children to understand and believe the Word of God. I have a vision for these young children to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ when they are little, then grow in the knowledge of Him as they mature, so that in the days to come, they might teach others also.
