Larry and Mandy Wilkes
Larry met Mandy in England when he was stationed there through the U.S. Air Force. They married in 1994 and were blessed with two girls, Hannah and Elise. After 12 years of life together there, they relocated to America for Larry’s last year of service and began to sense God’s call to the ministry. After earning his M.Div. from Sangre de Cristo Seminary in Colorado, Larry was ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA.
Between them, Larry and Mandy have prior short-term missions experience in Egypt, Honduras, Jamaica, Romania, Scotland, and Spain. They are familiar with the challenges of ministering in a post-Christendom nation. They love being involved in building gospel community in the church and in building relationships outside the church through hospitality and their many interests and hobbies, including history, archaeology, amateur radio, gardening, and making really good tea.
Larry and Mandy believe God has called them to return to England, this time through MTW, where they plan to work alongside Whaddon Road Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPCEW) in Cheltenham. Pray for the Wilkes family as they seek to help equip and encourage the church to reach the community, city, and country with the transforming power of the gospel of Christ!
