DOVE Christian Fellowship International (DOVE International) is a worldwide family of believers in Christ involved in churches and ministries located in six continents. As an international family, we are diverse in culture and background but share a common God-given vision, values, mission, and commitment to start and nurture churches and ministries to transform communities throughout the nations.
On November 5 and 6 the leaders from DOVE churches and ministries in Europe gathered in London. We were pleased to welcome Tihomir and Dimka Tenev and Danail and Nora Tanev from Bulgaria, as well as Dirk and Hanneke Develing from the Netherlands, John and Gena Buchan from Scotland, and James and Rachel Krechnyak from Ireland. Together with the DOVE Europe leadership team of Larry Kreider, Peter Bunton and Ron Myer, we spent time advising one another and praying for each other’s lives and ministries. God gave us an excellent time of team building and seeking Him for future strategy. Join us in prayer for expanding the ministry in Europe.

Dan and Regina Bumstead
Dan and Regina Bumstead, from The Hive, a DOVE church in Oregon, have given their lives to serving the least and the lost – the poor, the orphans, the hungry; and the people unreached by the gospel of life. Since 2009 they have lived and served among the Toka people of Zambia – a people of little education, deep traditional beliefs, shorter life expectancy, and severe poverty. They have two orphan homes, community gardens, a growing child sponsorship program and various development programs. They are also catalyzing an indigenous church planting movement – simple, obedience based house churches that are led by the local uneducated people. The Bumsteads have pioneered this work and started a rustic base in the village along the mighty Zambezi River where the wild animals still walk free, to the delight of the many Western teams and interns who come to serve with them. They are particularly praying for some long term servants who will serve in the areas of administration and site maintenance/development.
Please consider supporting Dan and Regina, both in prayer as well as financially. Click HERE for their DMI web page for contact information as well as to give directly toward the Zambia Mission.
