Meet the Stanfields

We are Jeff and Christine Stanfield, currently serving with World Gospel Mission (WGM) in Uganda. It still feels a little weird to put in writing; that we are in Uganda. That’s because we served with WGM in Kenya for most of our marriage, based at Tenwek Hospital.

Tenwek is where we raised our two children. Lizz, our firstborn, currently lives in Indiana. Her husband is an accountant. They have one child. Our son, Chris, is a university student in Oregon. These dear ones enrich our lives.

Throughout our 21 years in Kenya we served in various capacities with WGM and Africa Gospel Church (AGC). We took chances, faced challenges and saw many changes. Through it all we experienced God’s faithfulness and provision.

As new missionaries, we claimed 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 for our life verses, reminding us that “God is our adequacy.” We relied on God’s help in adapting to a new culture and learning to use our professional skills in new ways. We sought His help in building relationships.

Now, 22 years later, we continue to trust God as our adequacy. We moved to Uganda in August of 2012. We rely on God as we learn the new cultures and meet people. We seek His help as we fulfill the role of assistant country director for WGM, provide member care, participate in training Africans and connect people to Jesus.

We enjoy exploring ministry through Africa Gospel Church (AGC). God has provided us with a broad base of experience on which we can build. Working with/through the church is a burden God has laid on our hearts. He is preparing the way for us to help people deepen their relationships with God.

If you would like to receive regular updates on how God is working in Uganda and beyond, please visit our blog and/or send us your e-mail contact and we’ll add you to our list.
