Children’s Director: Naomi Umfleet. Naomi attends Indiana Wesleyan University studying children’s ministries. “I have felt God’s call to teach the children around the world so I’m hoping to be a missionary to children”, she says.

Youth Director: Kevin Bingaman. Kevin grew up in Montana and attended the University of Idaho, majoring in journalism. During his sophomore year of college, he felt God’s call to ministry and began his journey to the pastorate, first serving in Moscow ministering to college students. He has served as the youth pastor at the Church of the Nazarene in St. Maries, Idaho since 2014 and was ordained as an elder of the Nazarene Church in April 2018. Kevin married his wife Mikkayla in October of 2016. Kevin is passionate about discipleship and teaching the Word, and enjoys coming alongside young people to help them discover their callings. Missionaries: Leroy and Sandy Anderson. We have been serving the American Indian Field for 31 years. The last 18 years we have served as leaders for the Field. Along with administrative duties we are involved in encouraging missionaries and Native American Believers as they engage in ministry. We praise the Lord for many long-term relationships God has given us in Native communities. Watching as Native believers in Christ begin to grasp that God wants to use them to reach their communities and beyond is an extra special blessing.
