As GEMissionaries our heart's desire is to "reach Europe by multiplying disciples and growing Christ's Church." We seek to fulfil this mission in Wales by partnering with churches to develop disciple-making ministries. Our goal is to equip churches to make disciples who make disciples. Our passion is to help churches develop vibrant small-group ministries that emphasise outreach and discipleship multiplication.
Jodie serves as Greater Europe Mission's Area Leader for Wales and the northwest of England, helping other missionaries on the field develop their ministry plans and providing resources to help them be successful in ministry. Tina works with women and children in the local church and is an administrator for a local food bank.
Our Story: Tina and Jodie Gaston
We both grew up in South Carolina. Jodie served as pastor in a couple of churches and Tina was a Certified Athletic Trainer before God called us to be missionaries in UK. We fell in love with Wales when we took part in some short-term mission trips several years ago. We prayed that God would raise more workers for the harvest. Eventually, we sensed that God was calling us to be full-time workers for the harvest. We moved to Wales in 2014 and have loved every minute of our GEM adventure.
We have two children - a daughter, Hollis, and a son, Aedyn. They both are developing a British accent ;-).
