Morty is very excited about serving with Mission Eurasia. In his own words, he shares, “I have always had a passion for training and equipping the Next Generation of church leadership. My ministry over the last 25 years has been spent in evangelism and church discipleship. It’s exciting to see the work that’s going on in the field and to join the team at Mission Eurasia.” With his extensive fundraising background, Morty looks forward to helping us grow our financial support. He is also excited to build relationships with our key partners and share giving opportunities that will help grow God’s Kingdom throughout Eurasia.
