During their time in Jackson, they planted an RUF International among the students at Mississippi College. While serving with RUF International, both Ian and Hanna were convinced that serving internationals was the best job in the world, so upon graduation, they moved to Evanston, IL to plant an RUF-I at Northwestern University and serve there full-time. Ian enjoys good movies, good books, and being a mediocre basketball player.

Imbumi and Martha Makuku

Makuku pic copyImbumi and Martha Makuku are native Kenyans who came to know Christ as their Savior and Lord in their early teens. They met while working with World Vision in the slums of Nairobi, were married July 31, 1994 and have two boys, Elmer and Isaac, as well as legal custody of several other children. At the urging of friends and mentors, Imbumi came to the United States under a full scholarship to attend Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida and received his Master of Divinity Degree in 1999. He returned to Kenya and worked for Sudan Interior Mission in the slums training pastors, but he always felt his calling was to preach to the lost. In 2002, he began the Kibera Reformed Presbyterian Church (KRPC) in the poorest section of the Kibera slum, Silanga Village. Since then, the Makuku's ministry, under the Mamlaka Foundation, has expanded to include a school, feeding program, and health education outreach at the church, as well as the purchase of land outside the slum that includes a guest house, the Shunem Family Home, a ‘farmhouse,’ vegetable gardens, livestock, gristmill, and most recently, the Hope Community Church.

Hunter and Laura Quinn

Screenshot 2023-10-28 at 3.48.35 PMHunter and Laura Quinn are called to minister to university students in Cape Town as part of the MTW church-planting team in South Africa. They long to see students come to love Christ and His Church, a desire planted in them through their time with Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Oklahoma State. Having participated as both students in RUF and staff with RUF-International, Hunter and Laura understand how people desperately need to hear about Jesus and to join a gospel-centered church. This is especially true of Cape Town's universities, where students from all across the African continent come to study but also experience the pull of secularism, tribal religions, and false teaching. They are excited to be a part of growing the Reformed Presbyterian churches through campus ministry in a country afflicted by the prosperity gospel. Pray for the Quinns as they evangelize and disciple university students in South Africa.

Elijah and Jessie Brook

Screenshot 2024-01-20 at 1.12.37 PMElijah and Jessie Brook are missionaries with MTW called to Leven, Scotland where Elijah will help co-plant a Free Church of Scotland congregation with Rev. Geoff Murray and his family. The Brooks first moved to Scotland in 2018 after their first year of marriage and began serving at a local church in south Edinburgh called Cornerstone. There Elijah trained for pastoral ministry and continued his theological studies while Jessie studied biblical counseling and served in women’s and teen’s ministries. During the last 5 years they welcomed their first child (Greyson) and continued to follow God’s call to local church ministry within the Free Church. By co-planting a church in Leven, the Brooks will be helping reach a town whose people are mostly unreached with the gospel and ministering to a large number of people suffering from many versions of hopelessness (broken homes, poverty, addiction, etc.) with the eternal hope found in Christ alone.
