Glenn Lorenz began serving as the Africa Area Associate Director in October 2022. His work focuses on recruiting, onboarding, training, and coaching missionary teams to live in Africa and support the national church leaders. This revitalized focus will strengthen the connection between the U.S. church and FM ministries throughout Africa.

Before his missionary service, Glenn chaired the Ministry and Theology Department at Central Christian College of Kansas, planted a church in Arizona, and served a church in the Sierra Pacific Conference.
