TODD AND HANNAH MORR
We have a unique and amazing formal relationship with the Morr Family. Pastor Tim (and Pastor Jared prior to that) has worked locally and internationally with Todd for many years now and we love the work we get to partner in together.
Todd was a founding leader of the Soma Family of Churches and Saturate the World. He also helped start Josiah Venture, which has been doing youth ministry training and evangelism for 25 years in 14 different Eastern European countries. He lived in Eastern Europe for 11 years in the Czech Republic and Romania and has been serving church leaders internationally since 1994. For the past 20+ years, he's been helping train and coach both existing churches and church plants in North America and 20 other countries to form Missional Communities and other forms of missional small groups.
Todd spends lots of his time consulting with church leaders and their teams to assess where they need help and how to move forward with concrete plans toward greater disciple-making and missional effectiveness. He also has a passion to see churches united and learning to work together to see gospel influence spread in their cities.
Todd is married to Hannah who has 20 years of experience living a missional life and leading MC’s in Romania, Tacoma, and San Diego. She’s had great impact on the lives of many non-Christian women friends, as someone who is gifted as an evangelist, and has also deeply discipled many Christian women over the years. And, she’s a pretty amazing Mom! Hannah is also available for female leaders interested in getting on a video call to talk about living intentionally on mission and helping lead a Missional Community as women.
Locally, Todd and Hannah lead a Gospel Community in San Diego with New City Church, which is part of the Soma Family of Churches. They have 5 kids who love Jesus, sports, and spending time together outdoors as a family.
ERVIN & MARIKA MITTELMANN
Location: Košice, Slovakia
The Mittelmann family planted Mozaika church in Ervin's hometown of Kosice. They began with 1 Missional Community of 5 people!
About the Mittelmanns: They are Slovakian natives who feel called to be the church and proclaim the Gospel in their city. Slovakia has a Protestant Christian population of about 7%, however only 0.2% claim to be "evangelical" stating they consider themselves to have a "personal relationship with Jesus". Gospel-centered everyday normal Christians are perceived to be strange sectarian cult members by nationalist Catholic majority. This makes the work of church planting in Slovakia very difficult. Mozaika has done an amazing job loving people and blessing people in their community which has built trust and mutual respect.
Ervin is well known around Slovakia as a consultant to other churches as well as for equipping everyday Slovakian Christians for living on mission. Mozaika currently has 11 DNA groups and 3 missional communities that meet around their city, share life together, and intentionally pursue people with the Good News of the Gospel.
We love being involved as sister churches with Mozaika and have regular Zoom calls with their leadership teams to encourage and equip one another. Ervin was here with us in 2018 and 2020 and we hope to return the favor by visiting Slovakia in the years to come! Pray for the Mittelmann family and Mozaika church!
