The MTW Virtual Missions Conference

Our world is in upheaval but the work of making disciples of Christ is ever before us. The pandemic has raised existential questions, opened spiritual doors with a bag of rice, and provided opportunities for local partners to lead. Now more than ever, we witness His hand at work and celebrate the assurance that His story continues.

SPEAKERS & MUSIC

Victor Nakah

International Director – Africa, Mission to the World

Victor is an ordained Presbyterian minister, and has served in various capacities in the church and related organizations. His most recent position was with CURE International, where he served as senior vice president for spiritual ministry. Before joining CURE, he served as the Africa regional director for Overseas Council International. He was also a seminary president for 10 years in Zimbabwe. During this time, he earned a master’s degree in systematic theology from the University of South Africa and a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Stellenbosch University. 

In addition to his primary ministry as MTW international director for Sub-Saharan Africa, Victor supervises master’s and Ph.D. students attending South Africa Theological Seminary, teaches at the Africa Reformation Theological Seminary (Uganda), and is Extraordinary Researcher for North-West University.

Victor and his wife Nosizo have two adult daughters.

Cartee Bales

Senior Director of Field Operations, Mission to the World

Rev. Cartee Bales began a career in technology management and consulting, and was eventually redirected into vocational Gospel ministry through his passion for cross-cultural missions. This passion carried him from a corporate setting to seminary in his 40s, then through ordination and ministry in the Presbyterian Church of America at Kirk of the Hills PCA where he served as the Pastor of Missions and Outreach, and then to Asia. Through this journey, God has merged and used Cartee’s leadership and business experience with his ministry training, and matched it with a passion for the nations. He and his wife Colleen lived in South Asia seven years, and now serves Mission to the World as the Senior Director of Field Operations, based in Atlanta, GA.

He and Colleen have two sons, and two grandchildren who live in the United States.

David Stoddard

International Director, Europe - Mission to the World

David, son of a PCA church-planter, was raised in Louisiana and Tennessee. Christ captured his heart in high school while he was participating in short-term mission trips, and David has felt called to missions ever since. At King College in Tennessee, he majored in political science and modern foreign languages, earned a master of divinity degree from Westminster Theological Seminary (WTS) in California, and a Th.M. from WTS in Philadelphia.

David serves as the international director for Europe, overseeing MTW’s vision, values, and personnel in Europe. David and his wife Eowyn joined MTW’s church-planting movement in eastern Berlin in 2001. Over the past 20 years, Team Berlin has been involved in planting five churches and a campus of Martin Bucer Seminary. David and Eowyn support church-planting through evangelism, teaching, and outreach to refugees.

Micah Iverson

Music Leader for Worship Concert

Micah Iverson is a musical artist based in Atlanta, GA. He combines the storytelling of Soul with the musicianship of Pop and Alternative rock. Micah placed fifth on NBC's 18th Season of The Voice in the Spring of 2020. He is currently working on his first EP to be released later this year.
