Our Missionary Family

Can a small country church like Dalkena have an impact on the world? WE CAN! and in a very real way. Below you will find information on missionaries we are supporting to some degree through prayer and financial giving. We consider them our missionary family. Many of them have direct ties to Dalkena either because they were sent out from here or because they have close friends and family who are members here. As you look through the list you will find that they span the globe and work in people groups of a multitude of cultures, languages, and geographic locations. So while we are trying to build up each other and impact the Newport Cusick area for our Lord Jesus Christ, we can at the same time uphold these missionaries in prayer and financial support and impact the far reaches of our world for Jesus Christ. These missionaries get lonely being so far away from home and one of the best things you can do for them is simply to reach out and contact them. Contact information is available for each one.

Shawn & Christena Werdebaugh

Slovenia

Shawn first learned of Slovenia in December, 2001. Since that time, he had been burdened to go and in 2003, met Josiah Venture missionaries Joel and Amy Woodard and now had a direct contact to Slovenia. After Shawn graduated from Bible college, he and his wife Christena served in multiple cities in Slovenia as summer interns in 2008 with their three young boys (Zackery, Nathan, and Corban). During that time, God confirmed their call to serve the youth of Slovenia..

Shawn and Christena Werdebaughs Missionaries

They now have a daughter (Alisha) and arrived in Slovenia long term in May of 2012 to serve in the growing youth ministry through English camps, Bible studies, and the developing of local churches. They are very excited for their return to Slovenia and will continue investing in the many relationships that were established through the church in Ljubljana.

Shawn and Christena have been to Dalkena several times in recent years and we have been praying with them as they crossed many hurdles to obtain Visa's and proper documentation as well as countless other details in preparation for their departure. They have a beautiful family and just the thought of them always brings a smile to our hearts and faces. Matt and Bri Schlaich are good friends with the Werdebaughs so you might want to visit with them for more information. Shawn and Christna would love to hear from you so feel free to contact them and share some encouragement.

Dan & Devri Wickwire

Turkey

Dan and Devri have been serving in Turkey as missionaries to Muslims in a ministry of evangelism, discipleship and church planting for more than 25 years. They continue to serve in Turkey as ministers at large with Turkish World Outreach working among Turks, Kurds, and Iranians. Dan frequently gives seminars or courses comparing and contrasting the similarities and differences between Christianity and Islam at churches, conferences, and Bible Schools around the world. Dan has appeared on numerous TV stations in Turkey to represent Christianity and participate in live debate and Turkish talk shows with Muslim theologians and commentators. Dan has written a number of books, some of which are in both English and Turkish

Dan and Devri Wickwire Missionaries

We at Dalkena have known and followed Dan and Devri's ministry for years because of the fact that Dan's parents, Ed and Jo Wickwire, were great boosters of their kids and kept us informed on a regular basis, as well as procuring more frequent visits from them when they were here to visit their parents. We have many times been blessed to have them share at church and in homes and have been amazed at the way God works among the Muslims in Turkey. A lot of things happen over there on a regular basis that are considered "strange" or "unusual" in this part of the world, but God is doing an amazing work there through those unusual means.

Dan & Eva Anderson

Spain

We work with North African families who live in or near Madrid, Spain. These families come mainly from three North African people groups; the Rifi Berbers, the Moroccan Arabs and the Jebalas. It is estimated that there are about one million people from these people groups living in Spain. In an effort to reach out and build relationships with these families we have started a number of community based outreach activities including adult literacy classes, Spanish classes for men and for women and English classes and activities for youth. The purpose of these activities is help North African families integrate better into the local context and culture and also to demonstrate love and compassion in practical, tangible ways. We also collaborate with other non-profit organizations as well as with the initiatives of local city officials.

Dan and Eva Anderson Missionaries

In addition we work alongside believers who are from North Africa and who have a burden for their own people. Supporting nationals in the ministry is one of our top priorities. Since the year 2000 we have been working in close partnership with the La Elipa church in Madrid where we have been involved with youth ministry, women´s ministry and missions.

We got to know Dan and Eva here at Dalkena through our previous support of Dan's parents Neil and Carol Anderson who were Wycliffe Bible translators in Paupau New Guinea for 30 years completing the New Testament for the Folopa people there. Neil is now pastor of 4th Memorial Church in Spokane. It is always encouraging to have Dan and Eva come and share with us. They have a lot of energy and a strong vision for the ministries in Southern Spain. That and we just love Eva's accent!

Worship Teams

The worship team can set the mood of the service. From upbeat contemporary music with a sense of energy to quiet inspirational worship songs the worship team leads the congregation as we quiet our hearts in preparation for hearing the message from God's Word. Worship team members may sing, play instruments or help in the choosing of the choruses and hymns for the day, putting them all together in a way that enhances the spirit of worship among those in attendance.

We are thankful for the amazing amount of talent that the Lord has provided for us here at Dalkena. Each week we are blessed with a careful and thoughtful selection of worship choruses, performed with musical skill and prayerful consideration with the goal of bringing the Lord's people into an attitude of true worship.

Soundbooth Multimedia

This area of ministry utilizes technical and computer skills as it involves extensive use of sound equipment and computer technology. Sound balancing for microphones and instruments, cueing and playing special music accompaniment, presenting powerpoints for worship chorus and sermons, presentation of videos, recording of sermons and services and various other skills.

Multimedia is increasingly a part of modern worship services and proficiancy in this area is helpful in providing a worship service that is free from distractions and which directs the viewers attention toward the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the purpose behind all that we strive to do. ×
