Since high school, Emily knew she would be a missionary, but she also had a strong passion for photography. The CORE Program, Global Ventures’ internship, was the perfect fit! Emily completed all three years of CORE and graduated in 2020. In 2022 she joined the Global Ventures staff as our Digital Media Specialist!
Similarly, Parker felt a call to full-time ministry shortly after high school. Parker connected with Emily and Global Ventures in 2020, and his eyes truly opened to how many people have never heard the Gospel, one time. With his experience in children’s ministry and missions, he is passionate about reaching people of all ages with the Gospel! He is excited to be a student at the Global Ventures School of Missions for 2022-2023 to learn more about being a frontline Harvester!
Together, they are devoted to sharing the love of God around the world, reaching those who have never heard the Gospel before. Parker and Emily have been married since May 2022 and live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Role at GV & Ministry Plans
Emily serves at Global Ventures in the creative department as the Digital Media Specialist and is the photographer on GV trips. Parker joined Global Ventures in 2022 as a Global Ventures School of Missions student and will graduate in April 2023. He is also working full-time at Nelson Nissan in Broken Arrow, OK.
Part of their role with GV trips is going in several weeks before a team trip to assist in planning ministry in schools, communities, and streets. They also stay late in several countries to be on the follow-up discipleship teams. Their long-term goal is to be full-time missionaries and raise support to say yes to every project God has planned for them, focusing on the most unreached areas.
This past year, they worked in Zambia, Honduras, Albania, and Thailand. This summer, they will work in Brazil, Peru, and Romania, and in the fall, they will work in India and Bangladesh. Parker and Emily will travel early to Peru and Bangladesh as part of the Advance Team to help with the setup and planning. They will also stay late in Peru and Bangladesh to facilitate and implement follow-up and discipleship strategies with pastors. Parker and Emily are also planning to conduct their first festival (crusade) this year which will be in Bangladesh. Their greatest need is your monthly partnership.
