Roger & Julie Tate {Kenya}

Roger and Julie Tate have served the Lord in Kitale, Kenya since January 2008.

Their main ministry is indigenous church planting. Their first term was an eye-opening experience for them as they learned firsthand about weaknesses built into the Kenyan people, which effected their original method for church planting. The biggest problem they have noticed is that the Kenyan people tend to depend on the missionary and western funds very heavily. When they return for their second term in July 2011, they plan to focus on simplicity in the Gospel, building deep relationships, and planting churches in homes.

The Tate Family is from Dayton, Ohio and were sent out by Emmanuel Baptist Church in Bellbrook, Ohio, which was Roger’s church home for more than 27 years. Roger was raised in church, but was not saved until the age of 20. Julie grew up in Grand Blanc, Michigan. She and her family were faithful members of Liberty Baptist Church in Burton, Michigan, where she made a profession of faith at the age of 8 (and God has been working on her ever since!). Roger and Julie were childhood sweethearts and they have been blessed with three children: Emily (16), Amy (11), and Josiah (9).
