Wayne and Hilary Denny
African Diaspora Ministry
For five years, Wayne and Hilary served in Leadership Training in Senegal, Africa, with World Venture. God enabled them to take advantage of a unique window of religious freedom in Muslim Senegal by equipping church leaders who have a heart for reaching their country and the Muslim world. The Denny family returned to the US in 2016. Hilary completed her master program and is now teaching in the Memphis schools. Wayne works with the African Diaspora Ministry with World Venture. Since 2017, Wayne has been pursuing a degree in Intercultural Studies where he has used every opportunity possible to learn more about ministry with immigrant communities. He has sought answers to many of these questions:
- When beginning ministry in an immigrant community, what is the best way to connect with people?
- Where can you meet people?
- If seeking to help the community, what’s the best thing to do? English classes? After-school tutoring with kids?
- What is the best way to build trust with people in the community?
Wayne is in the final stage of his program and is working on his doctoral dissertation.
Ways to Pray for the Dennys
- Will you please pray for him as he completes his dissertation? Pray that the relationships he is building through this process and the information he gathers from interviews will lead to being able to serve his community better and open more doors for building relationships.
- Will you also please pray that what he is learning can impact World Venture work beyond Memphis? Pray that the work he has been doing will continue to prepare him to share insights that can help ministry done in other cities.
