Barry and Patty Jordan

Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


We have been in Indonesia since 1989, where we focus on discipleship/leadership training, youth and contextual ministries. We teach and preach in the C&MA/GKII (Indonesian partner) churches and in discipleship schools. We invest in Team Joshua youth ministries, which has ministries in 3 different cities in Papua. Through a foundation called TEPAT and through video, we reach out to the unchurched.

Our oldest daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Cody, are serving with Missionary Athletes International out of the Chicago area. Our son, Joshua, and his wife, Mykie, also serve with Missionary Athletes International in Chicagoland. Daniel, our youngest, is a senior at Toccoa Falls College in Georgia.
