Raising New Leaders
Planting New Churches
Trevin and Ruthie met in Bulgaria as interns with Mission to the World (MTW) in 2012 and now God is leading them back to serve long term in the capital city of Sofia. They will be working alongside Bulgarian leadership seeking to strengthen an existing church plant by raising up leaders and growing the church through evangelism. Eventually, they will work to plant new churches in other areas of the city.
Trevin is originally from La Porte, Texas. After returning from Bulgaria in 2014 he moved to St. Louis, Missouri, to complete his M.Div. at Covenant Theological Seminary. Ruthie grew up in Austin, Minnesota. After leaving
Bulgaria in 2013, she worked in St. Paul, Minnesota, as an R.N., and later as a traveling nurse. Trevin and Ruthie
married in August 2016.
The Hoots are passionate to advance God’s kingdom throughout Bulgaria through evangelism and church planting. They long to see lives changed as people are reached with the gospel. Please consider joining their team to do God’s work in Bulgaria by committing to regular prayer and

Migration & Human Trafficking
Cathy & Juan focus their vision on people whose dreams have been denied. They walk alongside global partners in their efforts to address these issues. They are also collaborating with Asian churches and non-government organizations to assist with coordination efforts to end the scourge of modern-day slavery. They carry a deep concern for those whose hope for a better life for themselves and their families has been dashed by human traffickers. Cathy says, “I pray the Lord would lead and guide us as we address migration and human trafficking by participating in God’s work to redeem economic systems of exploitation and exchange them for life-giving opportunities and education, while tending to the healing of peoples’ bodies and spirits.”
