Missionary Support

The Church at Creston was founded as a mission congregation seeking to spread the Gospel both locally and abroad. As part of that ministry we support and send out the following missionaries around the world to share and spread God's word. Please follow the links below to learn more about their work and how you can support it.

Mark and Megan Mantey

Seminary Development - Uganda, Africa

Mark and Megan Mantey serve the Lord as missionaries in Uganda. Mark serves as the project manager for the seminary, managing the financial aspects of it and collaborating in the creation of a long-term business plan. As an instructor of Christian education and counseling, Megan teaches classes at the seminary and advises in its program development. Mark and Megan are also grateful to be involved in the daily life of the local community and the Lutheran Church of Uganda (LCU).
