Chris & Marti Wade

Globally (based in North Plains, OR)

Key Verse: Matthew 9:37-38

Ministry Focus: Marti is a writer/editor who works in communications and marketing for Pioneers, supporting efforts to send missionaries, plant churches, and make disciples among some 500 unreached people groups in 100+ countries. She also serves on the board for MissionWorks. MissionWorks seeks to help more people do more in missions and do it better. In 2021, Chris joined the City of Hillsboro (Oregon) Fire & Rescue and Hillsboro Police. He leads a team of chaplains who serve first responders and come alongside people on what may seem the worst day of their lives.

Please pray for:
  • Marti and her team at Pioneers as they support the work of pioneering ministry among the world’s least-reached peoples by telling stories about what God is doing and demystifying missions for those who go and those who pray or send.
  • the global Pioneers family as they seek to significantly expand their work by engaging an additional 250 unreached people groups from 2025-2035.
  • Chris as he serves the city of Hillsboro, Oregon’s fire and police as a crisis chaplain and trains and supervises volunteer chaplains who come alongside people in crisis.
  • God to sustain Chris and Marti and give them joy, empowering them by His Spirit for their local and global service.
