Chris and Wendy England's Bio

"Go and make disciples of all nations. . . ." Chris and Wendy England have a passion to serve the Lord. Since 2005 they have been ministering as long-term missionaries in the European nation of Croatia. Their desire is to model Christ to the people of Croatia, share with them His transforming power, connect them with other Christian believers, equip them to grow in their walk with Christ, and challenge them to discover Christ’s call to ministry. 

Graduates of Bartlesville Wesleyan College (now Oklahoma Wesleyan University), Chris and Wendy both served in North American Wesleyan churches prior to moving to Croatia. Chris served as a youth and assistant pastor, and Wendy served with children, youth, and worship ministries. They also experienced missions firsthand on various short-term mission trips. These experiences helped to confirm God’s call upon their lives.

Colossians 1:28-29 (NIV) speaks to the Englands about their call to ministry and missions: "We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me." 

Chris and Wendy have three children: Kyler ('99), Caden ('04), and Abigail ('07).
