Jeff & Esther Talley


Mission to the World

Church Planting


God's lavish grace was revealed to Jeff and Esther at an early age. Saved in his pre-teen years near Philadelphia, Jeff studied at Covenant College and Westminster Seninary. Esther heard and believed the gospel through her missionary parents serving in Kenya. She also attended Covenant College and graduated with a BSN from Columbia University. God began to reveal to them His call to world evangelization during their student days.

The Talleys went to Kenya in 1980, moved to Tanzania in 1991, and returned to Kenya in 2000. In each place they were involved in evangelism, church planting and church nurture. Their last five years in Africa were spent training African church leaders to live and lead by grace and to evangelize using chronological Bible storying methods.

Jeff and Esther believe God has called them to serve with the MTW church-planting team in Trnava, Slovakia, Central Europe, a heavily Catholic and formerly communist country. Please pray that God will receive glory form many lives changed by the power of the gospel.

Through Him and for His name's sake, we received call people from amoun all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith. Romans 1:5.

They are blessed with four children, Laura (6/22/78) Matthew (3/14/80), Janet (5/6/83), and Kyle (12/7/84).
