Bill Henderson and his family are missionaries on the Micronesian island of Guam, leading the planting of Gospel Light Baptist Church as it seeks to reach the natives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since arriving on the field in July 2016, they have had wonderful opportunities to give the Gospel and disciple believers through church outreach as well as individual divine appointments.
Bill grew up in the South Carolina’s Upstate, and was saved in 1995 through the ministry of Fellowship Baptist Church. Shortly after his salvation, through consistent Bible study and solid Bible preaching, Bill realized that God was calling him to the full-time ministry. He attended Fellowship Baptist Institute, and during this time taught several Sunday School classes, led in Children’s Church, preached in a monthly Nursing Home ministry, and worked in Fellowship’s 2:52 Clubs. He was ordained into the Gospel ministry in 2012, and in the same year, surrendered to God’s call to missions in Guam.
Brother Henderson and Tonja, his wife of over twenty years, have eleven children whom they are seeking to raise for the Lord. Tonja helps keep the family organized and home-schools the children. The Hendersons began deputation in 2013, arrived in Guam in 2016, and are sent out by Fellowship Baptist Missions, a ministry of Fellowship Baptist Church.

The Mike Ring family has served on the field of Brazil since 1991. Mike is involved in the ministry of Igreja Batista Fundamental, in Porto Alegre, and has the desire to train young men, especially nationals, for the ministry of church planting.
Mike grew up in a church planter’s family in Mississippi and, although he heard the Gospel from very young, he did not receive Christ as his personal Savior until he was studying for the ministry at Bob Jones University in 1977. He graduated with his ministerial training in 1979 (B.A.) and with his Masters Degree in 1981. He married Tammy in 1982, and in 1983 he took the pastorate of Grace Baptist Church in Hampton, SC.
He resigned Grace Baptist in 1989 to begin deputation for the country of Brazil and arrived on the field in July, 1991. The Rings have raised their five children on the field and are now enjoying five grandchildren. The Rings are sent out through Global Baptist Missions. Fellowship Baptist Church became the Rings’ home and sending church in 2005.

Nathan Ring and his wife, Sarah, have served on the field of Brazil since June of 2014. Their desire is to plant fundamental Baptist, Bible-believing churches and train nationals to reach out with the Gospel to other Brazilians. They are currently planting a church in the neighborhood of Lami in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. They work in conjunction with Nathan’s parents, Mike and Tammy Ring, who also serve as church-planting missionaries in Porto Alegre.
Nathan grew up in Brazil as a missionary kid, but did not trust Christ as his Savior until just before he enrolled in Bob Jones University. He graduated in 2008 and finished his M.A. in 2011. During that time, he was able to participate in many missionary ministries, including spending a summer in Southeast Asia, working in six different countries sharing the Gospel. He also interned for a summer at Marquette Manor Baptist Church in Chicago, IL.
Nathan joined Fellowship Baptist Church in 2004. While attending Fellowship, he met Sarah, and they were married in 2010. They now have four children, who have already been a valuable asset to the ministry in Brazil.
The Lord called Nathan and Sarah back to Brazil in 2011, through a Sunday School series that Nathan was teaching on the book of Titus. The Rings are sent out through Fellowship Baptist Church’s home mission board, Fellowship Baptist Missions.
