Building Connections Close to You

MTW Northeast is a connection point for regional events, training, and help if you're interested in serving one year or longer.

We serve the states of Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. If your church is in one of these areas, we'd love to connect with you!

MEET THE TEAM

Greg Hills

Director

Originally from central New York, Greg’s passion for missions came in college through Intervarsity at North Carolina State University which culminated in his first missions trip to Kenya. Having received his degree in engineering, he moved to the Boston area where he worked for a military contractor and received training at Gordon-Conwell Seminary. During that time, he became convinced that the Lord was calling his family to Istanbul, Turkey. There he worked with local church leaders and taught Bible courses. The Lord eventually led them back to the Boston area where Greg spent 20 years in pastoral ministry at First Presbyterian Church Northshore. Now as Northeast Hub director, he hopes to focus his passion for global missions in mobilizing God’s people for the Great Commission.

Greg lives on the North Shore of Boston with his wife Heather and two daughters and has four grown sons.

Sarah Jones

Hub Administrator

Sarah grew up in Pennsylvania and Vermont, studied biblical studies and youth ministry at Gordon College, and spent a summer during college on a short-term mission teaching English in China. After graduating, she worked in the missions office at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois, gaining first-hand experience with a strategic sending church. Upon moving back to the East Coast, she had the privilege of leading the Global Missions Team at First Presbyterian Church Northshore for eight years. Sarah lives on the North Shore of Boston and loves spending time outdoors with her husband Dave of 20 years and their four school-age children.

After graduation from the University of Rochester (New York) with an engineering degree, Ken was commissioned in the US Navy and served for 6 years as a nuclear submarine officer.  Since leaving the Navy, he continues to work in related vocational arenas. Ken has a deep passion for the Lord Jesus; for loving missionaries more and more deeply, and for short-term missions. He is actively involved in local men’s discipleship, domestic U.S. and international short-term missions efforts, and with the MTW Northeast Hub as Prayer Coordinator and Missionary Care Coordinator. Ken and his wife Barbara also greatly enjoy hosting missionaries in their home and visiting them at various international locations.

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.
