MTW | CENTRAL

Building Connections Close to You

MTW | Central is a connection point for regional events, training, and help if you're interested in serving one year or longer. If you are a new church starting a missions ministry or your church has an established global outreach, we can help you through planning, mobilizing, and connecting you with global PCA church-planting works.

We serve the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming.

MEET THE TEAM

Jerry Gibson

Director

A native of Texas, Jerry graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a degree in theology and biblical studies. He has been involved in cross-cultural ministry for most of his life, going back to his earliest and most formative years serving with Native Peoples in South Dakota. Jerry has also formally served in cross-cultural missions since 2001, including ministry in three low-income urban areas of Dallas. He has traveled to more nations than he can remember to serve alongside missionaries and indigenous believers.

Most recently, Jerry served as the senior director of missions and church planting at Park Cities Presbyterian in Dallas, where he helped develop the process for preparing new missionaries called “Thrive.” Much more important than credentials, Jerry hopes his years of experience (sometimes learning things the hard way) will benefit him in this new position with MTW. Jerry has been married to Kerry for 20 years. They have two daughters.

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.
