Sexton, John & Elizabeth

Serving in Global | Acct # 16809


National churches everywhere are facing many health and medical problems due to poverty, isolation, persecution, and lack of resources. John and Elizabeth are training national Christians to be health workers, serving in their churches and reaching out into their communities.


The Sextons have served with MTW for over 25 years using their advanced nursing degrees, first in the jungle of Peru and then in Mexico, where they used community development projects as an outreach to help plant churches. Since 2003, John and Elizabeth have served globally with MTW’s medical and health ministries in more than 25 countries. Their projects and trainings are unique to the churches’ specific needs. For example, in Southeast Asia, John trained volunteers to recognize, treat, and prevent common illnesses like malaria. In West Africa, John trained seminary students to be health teachers to prevent Ebola and other diseases. The churches use these skills to share Christ with people who would otherwise be closed to the gospel.


Another passion John and Elizabeth share is ministering to Native Americans. These are truly the “forgotten people.” The Sextons minister spiritually through family conferences and home visits dealing with needs such as alcohol, drugs, family violence, and other issues facing these families.
