Amy Blair - Chiang Mai, Thailand

Sending Organization – Wycliffe Bible Translators




Amy Blair grew up in Tremont, IL. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to be a jungle missionary, living in a grass hut and eating bugs. She dreamed of teaching national children how to read and write, but said she would never teach missionary kids in a big city. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute with her elementary education degree, God used many people and circumstances to convince her that she could indeed be a real missionary by doing what she grew to love, teaching missionary kids.


Amy has been teaching 3rd and now 5th graders at Grace International School ( in Chiang Mai, Thailand, since 2003. Grace serves over 600 students, primarily children of missionaries who are ministering in over 24 countries.


Besides her students, Amy also deeply loves the Thai people who live in and around Chiang Mai. She has been able to learn the Thai language so she can build many relationships with them by shopping at the local markets, hanging out with them, planting and harvesting rice in villages, and living with Thais from time to time. Her heart’s desire is that all Thais will soon have their eyes opened to the truth and turn their hearts to Jesus.

Brent & Connie Gregory - Tremont, IL




Brent and Connie Gregory, along with their sons Micah and David, served 10 years in northern Brazil with Project AmaZon (PAZ). PAZ is a nationally-lead church planting movement with a focus on the tens of thousands of unreached villages in the Amazon basin. All the Gregorys were involved in winning Brazilians to Christ and raising them up in their faith through the PAZ ministry model of small groups and one-to-one discipleship. Brent and Connie also provided administrative support at PAZ headquarters, serving, among other areas, in personnel management and missionary care. They developed a passion for missionary care and a call to move into that area of ministry.

In November of 2014, Brent, Connie, and David moved back to the United States, followed later by Micah and his wife Lidiane. In 2015 Brent and Connie completed an internship in missionary care at Heartstream Resources. They have settled back in Tremont and renewed their membership at Northfield Christian Fellowship. They serve their church as Pastoral Care Providers for Missionaries. They also serve the missionary community at large and provide member care for their agency, the Gateway Center for World Mission.

Bryan & Jennifer Hepp - Tremont, IL

Sending Organization – Cru




It gives Bryan and Jennifer joy to serve as an interdenominational ministry focused on turning lost students into Christ-centered laborers. While they were both in college, the Hepps experienced significant and lasting life-change because of Jesus through the college ministry on campus. Both grew in their faith, learned to introduce others to Him and were called by God to continue to invest in college students, the next leaders of this nation and world. They have the opportunity to reach students from the inner-city, international students from all over the world, art students, future politicians, CEO's, doctors, lawyers, teachers and so on. The Hepps coach and equip students to lead Bible studies, disciple and share Christ with other students and engage in spiritual multiplication.


Jennifer grew up attending NCF with her parents, Gary & Ann Williams, and her grandparents, George & Shirley Renner. Bryan grew up in Omaha & Kansas City.

Contact the Hepps and Stay up-to-date with all that God is doing with college students by signing up for prayer emails and newsletters.
