Church Planters in Astoria, Oregon

God took them to Germany in 2000 when Kevin was active duty in the United States Air Force. It was during that enlistment time that God spoke to Kevin’s heart about military missions. They joined Baptist International Missions, Inc. in 2005 when their enlistment was finished and started deputation in the United States. In 2009, God allowed them to finish their deputation and go back to the field of Germany, this time as Missionaries. They were faithful to the work of the Lord until God brought them off the field in 2016 to start a new church plant in the Northwest.  They have started a church in Astoria, OR.

The Summy family work with Amazing Grace Mission in a Gospel outreach ministry.  This ministry sets up booths in any outdoor/indoor event they can get into and tells people about the free gift of salvation.  They desire to encourage the local church members to see how easy it is to witness for the Lord and to see souls saved and plugged into the local church they are working with.  God has given the Summy family a greater burden for the Western States, so this is where they are focusing their ministry.

Missionaries to Peru

They served in Peru from 1987-2001.  They served in and out of Iquitos and along the mighty Amazon River.  They lived in an Indian village for nine years teaching the locals about God’s free gift of Salvation.  They also had a Bible Institute on their property, where Larry taught Biblical theology to national pastors from surrounding river villages.

  January 2002, they started a work in Kemmerer, WY, so after visiting there, they felt that was where the Lord would have them settle.  They started with a Bible Study in their home and began praying for a church building.  The Lord answered that prayer by making a building available on main street.

On March 30, 2008, they had their first church service in the new building.  What a day of celebration that was!!  It was so exciting to see how God had answered so many prayers and they looked forward with great anticipation to what God was going to do in the future.

On April 2, 2008, (just 3 days after the first service in the church building) the Lord called Larry home. 

The church (Grace Baptist) in Kemmerer, WY continues to do well.  

July, 2010,   Mrs. Hultquist was burdened to go to Owatonna, MN Carolyn continued to serve in an assisted living center there in MN.  God has given her a unique ministry through this position.
