About US.

We are the Wyatt family, missionaries to Tanzania, East Africa, since 2007.

Our mission is to preach, teach, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, following through with baptism and discipleship. With four small children, a growing ministry, and facing challenges of living on foreign soil, life is never dull. We strive each day to live a life that is pleasing to God through our person, family, and ministry. Scroll down to learn more about each member of this incredible team that God has put together!

Jerry & Rachel

  • Jerry

  • Rachel

Jerry was saved at a young age. He surrendered to preach at a tent meeting under the preaching of Tony Hutson. Jerry’s parents answered the call to missions in 1993 and arrived on the field of Tanzania in 1995. While in Africa, Jerry was always involved in the ministry by teaching out in the villages, public schools, Bible Clubs, and Sunday school. He also worked on the evangelistic puppet team that saw hundreds of people saved.

When Jerry was seventeen years old, he surrendered to go back to Tanzania. God’s calling was clear during a sermon at a Pastors’ School. Soon after surrendering, he enrolled at Hyles-Anderson College and graduated in 2007. While attending college, he captained a bus route and taught a boy's Sunday school class. He also worked for the dean of men on college staff for two of the years he was enrolled.

In January of 2009, Jerry, along with his wife Rachel, returned to Tanzania to serve the Lord. After working three and a half years as the youth pastor, Jerry became the senior pastor of the Faith Baptist Church Morogoro in 2012. Jerry is excited about the future of ministry here in Tanzania.
