MEET THE TEAM

Dale Hollenbeck

Director

Dale’s love for missions came through his first Bible study in the book of Acts. He became convinced that God’s best gifts are people, and that God calls people to give themselves for the building of His kingdom around the world. Dale was a missionary in Uganda (2001–2011). He led two missionary teams that discipled leaders in various fields including: business as mission, medical missions, therapy, primary and secondary education, agriculture, theological education, campus ministry, and tribal reconciliation. He has successfully helped missionaries from nine countries develop cross-cultural ministries within African organizational structures.

Mike Pollard

Mobilizer

Mike points to the Urbana missions conference as the place where his missions awareness, interest, and involvement started. Starting after college as a writer for a church missions mobilization organization. he worked with a local church for five years. From there he became the national director of church relations for Arab World Ministries and has since spent over 20 years consulting and coaching local churches for effective missions engagement. He is particularly passionate about unreached peoples.

Mariah Cunningham

Mobilization Specialist

Mariah was born and raised in the St. Louis area. She started exploring missions in high school through short-term trips and decided to major in missions in college. She has spent 12 years as a teacher in the public school system (teaching special education, third grade, middle school English, and elementary TESOL). Mariah has actively served on the missions team at her church, Spring Hills PCA, for nine years and has served as the mission director for the last three years. Her involvement in the missions team has led to a passion for integrating missions into all facets of church ministry and discipleship, from children's ministry all the way up to adult ministries.

DIVERSITY IN MISSIONS

At MTW, we believe that sending more diverse missionaries better reflects the image of God and helps build more effective ministry as people of color bring their voices and gospel stories to those waiting to hear. If you would like more info about how the MTW Diversifi initiative and RADD (Reformed And Diverse Delegates) can help you in your mission, please contact one of our diversity mobilizers.
