Support Milard and Joyce

Milard and Joyce's Story

Milard and Joyce and their three children, Gabriella (currently in Sydney), Daniella and Joel have served in Lebanon since 2002. They are passionate about sharing the Gospel and helping people become disciples fully devoted to following Christ and making disciples themselves.

Lebanon frequently features in the news because of the political and ethnic tensions within the country and with bordering nations. Milard, Joyce and their family have been kept safe during the various outbreaks of violence which have taken place in recent years. Approximately half of Lebanon’s people live in communities which are Christian by tradition, while around half the population are in Muslim communities. The differences with cultural and religious beliefs and practice are very significant.

Milard spent the first five years in Lebanon as the Dean of Students at the Baptist Bible College. During this time he and Joyce began large evangelistic events to reach youth and young adults as well running a number of Bible studies.

In 2013 Milard and Joyce also planted a contemporary, English speaking, Baptist church with 10 adults which has grown quickly to over 130 people. Joyce leads the women’s ministry, coordinates the Sunday school and supports Milard as he pastors the church and raises up new leaders.
