This section of our website is dedicated to our spiritual heroes, our missionaries. Without the work of these brave men and women, First Baptist Church of Kenmore would never be able to fully obey the command given to us by Christ Himself to “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel”. We cannot encourage you enough to get to know these fine messengers of the Gospel. Their example of selflessness, obedience, and yieldedness to God make them worthy heroes for us all. We are so thankful for each and every one of them. Please be tender to the burden that we all should have to pray for and support these missionaries.
Please note: this page is under construction as we do our best to present FBC Kenmore's missionaries in the best way possible. Please bear with us we add features, maps, and links so that you can learn even more about each of these amazing servants of God.

Though Bro. Phillip was raised in a Christian home, it wasn’t until he went to a youth camp at age 15 that he understood his sin, realized his need of a Savior and put his faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. As he read his Bible and began to grow, it quickly became clear that He wanted him in full-time Christian service. In Bible college the Lord slowly worked in his life to direct his attention to the mission field more and more. When he graduated, he was able to spend 6 months in Peru before helping to start Vision Baptist Church. Every step of the way, He has been preparing him for the ministry He has now called him and his wife, Lori, to in Thailand.
Donny grew up in Crown Point, Indiana. He has an amazing testimony of how his life was being wrecked and ruined by drugs, alcohol, rock music and that whole lifestyle.

Don felt the Lord leading us to serve as missionaries in the country of Australia. It took a few years to raise support and another year to get through the red tape of Australian immigration.

Evangelist Tim Booth has been in the ministry for over 35 years. He is a evangelist with a widespread ministry here in the US. He has a passion for the next generation to have grit, to be able to stand as God commanded us to stand, and to be spiritual leaders. He has said… “Today we are facing a famine of real manhood and leadership. It is unpopular to be competitive, aggressive, and assertive if you are a man, so we are plagued with people void of integrity, moral example, and courage of convictions in positions of leadership. As a result, our homes, churches, and nation have suffered. Bro Booth has dedicated his life to reaching another generation for God.

Bro. Timoth Deem is the warehouse manager for DirectLine Ministiries. His testimony is as follows: I was saved in 1991 in the Philippines. The Lord used the movie “Burning Hell” to awaken me to my need for salvation. It scared me to death. I did not want to go to hell, so that night I asked my parents to show me how to be saved. I asked Jesus Christ to forgive me of my sins and be my Savior. I was later baptized in Spencer, WV in a creek. I had always dreamed of flying, so I got a job at a restaurant to pay for flying lessons. In two years, I received my pilot license. I witnessed to everyone at work and had many conversations with them about spiritual things, but I wanted to do more to serve God. In my heart, I knew God was calling me into full-time ministry. It was time to quit my secular job and follow God’s will to work with DirectLine Ministry. I knew I would need to learn the Bible and learn to preach. I took two years of classes from my pastor, Vernon Snell. These Bible classes were a real blessing in preparing me for preaching the Word of God. Now I have the blessing of working with DirectLine Ministry and proclaiming the Gospel of my blessed Lord.
Bethany, Tim's wife, is a great asset to him and is available for help with ladies ministry and children’s classes. She is the DirectLine ministry’s secretary and places a crucial role in the work as well. They also love to provide special music.

The mission of GLBM is to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in Myanmar and the Buddhist World by providing food, clothing and shelter for widows and orphans, establishing Christian schools to prepare young hearts, training and sending indigenous pastors and missionaries, and planting local churches.
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus Christ our Lord tells us to “Go ye therefore and teach all nations”. Who better to teach within a nation than those indigenous to that nation in their own mother tongue. As Paul tells Timothy: “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2) This is a vital concern. GLBM hopes to train masses of Burmese pastors in Biblical fundamentals and send them to share the mighty Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord with their people. God is blessing with planting and raising up new Churches all over Burma.
God began developing a burden in Jon and Tina’s hearts for military missions nearly ten years ago when Tina’s younger brother Rick, who was serving as a US Marine in Iraq, was killed in action. Jon and Tina were moved by Rick’s sacrifice to give themselves as a “living sacrifice” (Rom. 12:1) to God to reach with the Gospel those heroes who put their lives on the line for us. Jon and Tina’s great desire is for those who serve our country to come to know Jesus Christ before it is too late and to be discipled and grow in the Word of the Lord. Jon and Tina moved to New Jersey in 2013 and began Freedom Baptist Church outside of Fort Dix. Jon preaches, disciples, and goes out soul winning regularly as the pastor of Freedom Baptist Church.
