Course Instructor

Creative & Content Coordinator Abby Provencher

My name is Abby Provencher and I am a staff member at Touch the World. When I’m not working on devotional journals or resources for our short-term mission teams, I am likely to be found reading books and studying history—specifically, church history one of my favorite subjects. I’m passionate about stories, both our stories and the story of God’s mission throughout the world. My experiences as a short-term missions participant, team leader, intern, and now staff member at Touch the World have provided me with numerous lessons that now I get to share with you. So let’s get to it!

Why should I take this course?

To know where you are going, you have to know where you came from. This course will give you a crash course into the history of missions and describe how we got to where we are today.
