Rich & Nicole Moore (MTM States-Side Facilitator), Hayden, Trevin, Landon, and Shanae

Rich and Nicole Moore live in the beautiful Willamette Valley near Dallas, Oregon, USA and are the parents of three wonderful children; daughter, Shanae (married to Landon Kelley) and sons, Hayden and Trevin. Operating a construction business, tending a small hazelnut orchard, and serving as a minister to our local German Baptist Brethren church congregation are all a blessing for our family. Rich also serves on the board of the Rock of Ages Mennonite Home. Serving as a guest teacher for an MTM conference in SE Asia a couple years ago blessed us…inspired us and revealed to us how our amazing God is at work among the nations and among us. We look forward to allowing God to use us to help facilitate future MTM conferences when International borders open up.

Stephen Burkholder (MTM Intern Director)


Stephen Burkholder is originally from Denver, Pennsylvania, USA and a member of Lichty’s Mennonite Church a Keystone Mennonite Fellowship church. I have been involved in overseas missions for most of my adult life. America seems like a foreign country to me since I have invested five years of my life serving at a children’s home in Fujian prov. China, and then moving to Nepal to serve 7+ years with EQUIP.  Stephen is a pastor commissioned by Lichty’s Mennonite Church to do bible teaching under IGO/MTM. I look forward to serving as God directs and seeing how God will continue to make His name known among the nations. May God continue to build His church!
