We count it an honor to have good men of God serve on our team, in the missions field and as pastors to our churches that have been planted all over the world. The men in our Outreach have proven themselves by their character, their work for the Lord, and most importantly their soul-winning efforts. Each member has a true desire to fulfill the great commission given to us by the Lord. Our Outreach and the men we support as church planters have been chosen prayerfully and we thank the Lord for His leading.
Our Goals are expanding as the Outreach grows. Winning souls all over the world will always be the number one priority, but our plans also include:
*Planting Fundamental Independent Baptist Churches using men that have been trained by our team members and will get the job done.
*Starting Bible Institutes and colleges to train pastor's in foreign fields.
*Providing support for: Missionaries, Evangelists, Orphanages and Missionary Widows.
*Preaching the Gospel to a lost and dying world.
Through God's Word and leading we will always strive to further the Gospel and complete the Great Commission.
We are honored to be a ministry of West Park Baptist Church in Rockwell, NC. Please visit the link below to see how God is using our home church.
We are the Sechrist family. I am the pastor of West Park Baptist Church in Rockwell, North Carolina. Myself, along with my wife Jessica, and my daughters, Leah, Alli and Macy, are blessed to serve the Lord as the Pastor’s family.
The Lord has blessed me in the fact that I was born and raised in a God-fearing Christian home. My parents were saved before I was born, and through Godly preaching and teaching, they kept us in the house of God. Because of this, I was saved and baptized at a very young age. God began to deal with my heart as a young boy to preach the Gospel, but I did not surrender until I was 17 years old.
After surrendering to preach, I attended Hyles-Anderson College for three years and finished my degree at Trinity Bible Baptist Institute. The Lord allowed me to serve as an Assistant Youth Pastor for 15 years here at West Park Baptist Church. Through the leading of the Lord, it has been our privilege to now be the Senior Pastor starting our fourth year in January 2020. Our desire is to be a spirit-filled body that may seek to please the Lord in all areas of our Christian life.
Our church is very mission oriented, and it is with great delight we partnered with Bro. Craig Bryan to be the home base for the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach. It is our desire to be part of a great work in reaching the foreign fields with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us to work for the night is coming, and that the harvest is ready, but the labourers are few. We want to be faithful in reaching souls until the Lord comes back to claim His bride.

I am Missionary Todd Painter, founder and former pastor of Lincoln Baptist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. I have been in the ministry for twenty-three years and have served fifteen of those years in the pastorate.
I was saved in 1978 after a convicting Sunday night service. I was a deputy sheriff for almost five years when God called me into full time service. I then resigned my position and attended Bible College in Longview, Texas. After graduating I was ordained and sent out to start a church in Lincoln, Nebraska. During the fifteen years that I had been leading the Lincoln Baptist Church the city of Lincoln had become one of the most major refugee relocation centers in the United States. Through this church I had reached many people from Southeast Asia and through this outreach my heart was bonded to the people of Southeast Asia in particular Thailand.
On January 1, 2018 my son Jonathan became the pastor of Lincoln Baptist Church. My wife, Tammy, along with our daughters Rebekah and Debbie and I have recently reached the mission field here in Thailand. Please pray for us as we reach souls in the 17th most unevangelized nation on the face of the earth.
It is our honor to join with the Ron Middleton Missions to reach more souls for Christ. We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us as we work to plant churches and grow in His grace.

My name is Mark Holmes. I was called to the ministry at the age of fifteen, five years after I was saved. I graduated summa cum laude from Hyles Anderson College. During my senior year God placed on my heart to reach the people of Nigeria. I met my wife Sabrina at Hyles Anderson. She was studying music education and served in the Bible Clubs, deaf ministry and traveled one summer with a tour group. After graduation she taught fourth grade at her home church’s Christian school. While newlyweds we worked in many departments and aspects of our sending church. We started full time deputation at the end of May, 2003.
In June of 2005, we began our first term as missionaries in Nigeria. In our years on the field we have worked diligently to see souls saved, train and teach the nationals through our college and institute, plant churches, hold youth camps, conferences and other ministries all through the churches we have begun.
Through our church planting we have seen graduates of our college and institute start 40 churches. That is why teaming up with the Missions Outreach will be so important. The young men we train as pastors will have the support they need to start churches and see souls saved. That is the ultimate goal of our ministry. It is the desire of our heart and the hearts of our six children, Joseph, Victoria, Brian, Noah, LaDonna and Aaron to spend our lives serving the Lord.

My name is Kevin Wynne. I was born into a very strong Roman Catholic family in 1956. In 1958, we moved to Carlsbad, California where I grew up. My parents were good moral people, but I had never heard the gospel. At the age of 13, I fell into a bad crowd. I ran with a gang of drug users for two years I entered my nice middle class bedroom and removed a rifle off my gun rack. I was close to being 16 years of age and had no desire to live. As I placed pressure on the trigger, the thought of what would come next entered my mind.
Even as a Catholic I had heard of hell. I knew my desire was to escape life's problems, not have it worse in hell. Lowering the rifle, I picked up my mother's Bible. I began to study the Bible and after two weeks I found that salvation was not in seven sacraments, but in the Blood and redemption of Jesus Christ. On my knees, in my bedroom, I received Christ as my Savior and my life was totally changed.
For over two years I studied the Bible on my own. Sadly, no Christians had ever witnessed to me or told me about Salvation. At the age of 17, God called me to the mission field while I was reading Matthew 28:19-20. At the age of 18, I sold everything I owned and set off backpacking/hitchhiking for the Mission field of South America. (The last place I wanted to be was Mexico City. God must have a sense of humor because years later, that is where I ended up.)
Traveling through Mexico, Central America, and the Amazon jungle in Brazil, I tried to win souls. With long hair, a beard, the clothes on my back and two knives, I carried my Bible telling others about Jesus. Most people would not listen and not being trained as a soul winner, I had no results.
One day as I stopped in the mountain town of Huánuco, Peru to buy an ice cream cone, something amazing happened. A man, in broken English witnessed to me. I was unable to fully understand, so he took me to meet his Pastor. The Pastor took his Bible and showed a young hippie all about the Lord. Though I had already accepted the Lord, I was baptized that day.
After several months, I went back to the States and for two years attended the West Coast Baptist Church. While there I witnessed strongly to my parents and they were saved. I left there to go to Hyles Anderson College. While there I met and fell in love with my wife Deborah.
We went to Mexico City in 1984, starting from nothing. We knocked on doors and held Bible Studies with our converts. After four years, we bought a piece of property for our church. That first year we grew from baptizing 40 a year to 400. The church has rapidly grown over the years and we now average 9,000 on a normal Sunday.
My wife and I have eight children ranging in ages of 31-15. Our goal is to start 700 churches in Mexico and 500 in South America in our lifetime. To this end we have a Bible College which graduated 80 students last year. There are 299 enrolled this year. So far, we have had 600 churches started by our graduates.
Working with the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach will help us to reach our goal even quicker. It is an honor to be part of this team of men who are working diligently to get the job done for Christ. My wife, Deborah, and I look forward to being part of the team.

My name is Rick Martin. The last thing I would have ever been is a missionary. That was until Missionary Bob Hughes came to visit my home church, First Baptist Church, Hammond, Indiana, in March of 1976. Brother Hughes was dying of cancer. That night he was only able to speak for a few minutes, but when he was finished I turned to my wife, Becky, and told her we were going to the Philippines.
We arrived in Iloilo City in October 1977 and shortly afterward started a Bible study in our apartment. Most churches are started as a result of Bible studies. In April of 1978, Iloilo Baptist Church was born. Iloilo Baptist College was started in June of 1978, with a goal of starting churches. The first graduating class of IBC was in 1982. Most of the graduates go into rural areas to start churches. With limited populations, some of the graduates have started a second church and been pastor to both.
In 1990, the Lord impressed on my heart three new ways to start more churches. One was to send out graduates to other countries, I made a trip to Haiti and soon after, a young man on our church staff surrendered to go there. After two years of deputation in the Philippines he left with his wife for Haiti. There are now 5 graduates of IBC who are missionaries in Haiti, Zambia and Uganda. These men have started their own Bible Colleges. It was also in Haiti where I met a missionary who shared with me how some of the graduates of his Bible College had started nighttime Bible Institutes for married men. Like Haiti, it is very difficult for married men in the Philippines to go off to Bible College. Many are farmers and fishermen with families and there are no jobs in the city for them. When I returned to the Philippines, a challenge was given to the graduates of IBC to train married men in their churches to become pastors. The third way the Lord impressed me to start churches was by encouraging a few our our more experienced graduates to start Bible schools to train single young people. The Lord has blessed these four ways: starting Iloilo Baptist College, nighttime Bible Institutes for married men, Bible schools for young people, and sending missionaries to other countries, to start more churches.
The Philippines, for the 43 years we have lived here, has been very receptive to the Gospel. The people of Iloilo are especially open. There are many open doors. The Philippine Constitution allows churches to send their workers into the public schools and teach their religion on a volunteer basis. Many teachers and principals, who have never accepted Christ, welcome us to teach the Bible. Special people groups like the deaf, educable slow, street children, lepers, blind, patients in hospitals, prisoners, etc., are hungry for our great Savior. There are countless opportunities.
That is why we consider it an honor to become part of the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach Team. We look forward to working together to see more men trained, more churches started, and most importantly, more souls saved.
Becky and I are grateful for your prayers and interest in what God is doing here in reaching a great and wonderful people--the Filipino people.

We are the Brown Family, members of West Park Baptist Church. We count it a great honor to be Field Representatives for the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach. Our family has always had a big burden to give to Missions, but we never could have dreamed that God would allow us this opportunity to help raise support here in the states for the missionaries that are out there already getting the work done! We are excited and humbled to be a part of this great outreach.
I was saved at the age of 7, my wife at the age of 12, and each of our precious children, (Brianna, Abbie and Tyler), were saved at the age of 6 years old. My wife and I have been involved with the Bus Ministry throughout the years, and my wife served in the music program as a church pianist at our previous church for over 20 years.
God began working in our family last year (2019) when our oldest daughter, Brianna, (13 years old at the time), began writing and composing songs. God began opening many doors of opportunity for our family to sing and travel, and it was through her music that led our family to West Park Baptist Church. We knew in our hearts God had something else besides music to do for Him, and 3 weeks after joining West Park, God laid it on Bro. Craig Bryan’s heart to ask our family to pray about being Field Representatives. When he asked us, we knew without a doubt that this was what God had been preparing our family for over the last year. With no hesitation and complete peace from the Lord, we gladly accepted this position. We eagerly await to see what all the Lord has in store as we seek to serve Him with all of our hearts!

My name is Donna Swinson. I am honored to be the secretary for the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach. My husband, Jeff and I are members of West Park Baptist Church. After being saved thirty years ago, we have dedicated our lives to serving the Lord through our church. My husband is a deacon, runs a bus route for "special" adults, and together we teach Sunday school. I have been the church secretary for over twenty three years. We are both active soulwinners .
We truly love the Lord and feel extremely blessed for this opportunity to help in the Outreach. Though my part in the team will be spent at my desk and behind the computer, I pray the Lord will use me to be of service to all those out on the field getting the job done.

My name is Abbey Hoosier. I am so excited to be a part of the office staff for the Ron Middleton Missions Outreach. I am a member of the base church, West Park Baptist. I was saved as a nine year old girl at a youth camp in Asheboro, NC. In my early teenage years at a Youth Conference in New Bern, NC, I decided I would serve the Lord in any capacity I could with my life, and I have not turned back since. Although I am a full-time college student, I am currently serving the best I know how as a bus worker in my church. I participate in several ways across our music ministry. I love to go out soul-winning with my church family, and try to reach the lost.
I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this great work for The Lord. I pray the Lord will bless this ministry and help reach a lost and dying world.
