Welcome to the Team!
We would like to introduce you to Devanne D'Loss our new Stateside liaison for short-term missions trips.

Devanne is a licensed pastor at Harvestland Church in Michigan. She has served as the youth pastor there for about five years. She discovered her passion for missions in 2012 when she went on her first short-term missions trip to Trinided and then completed the four-month Missions Intensive at the School of Global Leadership (SGL) just one month later. Since her schooling and training at SGL she has been back to Trinidad on three missions trips. Two of which she led herself.

One of her greatest passions is teaching others about God's heart for the world. She loves setting individuals up for missions experiences that will empower them to discover and live out their part in the Great Commission long afte r the trip is over.

Devanne has been married to her husband, Mike, for almost five years. Mike is a software engineer who dedicates most of his free time serving alongside Devanne in student ministries and as Creative Pastor at their church. Mike has been on three short-term missions trips to Trinidad with Devanne and shares her desire to empower others to take the Gospel to the nations.

For those of you who are part of Open Bible Churches U.S.A., Devanne's parents are Pete and Heather Freeman, pastors in Clarkston, Michigan, and her grandparents Don and Lee Ann Frye are retired Open Bible pastors.

If you or your church are interested in coming to Trinidad please contact Devanne at devanne@sgl-trinidad.com .
