Area Missionary

Southwest Minnesota InFaith Missionaries








John and Cindy Gardiner were approved as missionaries in October, 2009 to Southwest MN with InFaith, formerly American Missionary Fellowship.  Currently they are in the deputation phase, raising support phase, as well as in part time ministry with InFaith. They both a looking forward to the day they are fully funded and can focus completely on ministry.  John and Cindy feel God has called them to minister to “unchurched” and “under-churched” families, especially those families that have gone through divorce or are considering that option.  Currently God is allowing them to minister to men, women and children in a variety of ways; Camp Grace, Jr. High Boys’ Bible Study, Women’s Beginners Bible Study, a variety of one-on-one mentoring/discipling opportunities, and after school programs, to name a few.  Please pray that John and Cindy will have eyes to see the needs of the hurting people around them and the wisdom to know how to meet those needs.

Where: SW MN (14 county area)

Mission Agency: InFaith, formerly American Missionary Fellowship

Purpose:  Reach “unchurched” and “under-churched” people for Christ, specifically sharing the hope of Christ with broken families.

Vision:  Our vision is to see the “unchurched” and “under-churched” people in SW MN reached with the Gospel of Jesus; to encourage families to stay together and work towards forgiveness and healing in Christ; to help those whose families that have already gone through a divorce find forgiveness and healing that can only come through Jesus.  In Christ there IS hope for everyone.
