Administration

Birne Wiley

Founder

As a pastors son I developed the vision for a mission that would support other missions and Christian workers with Technical helps. I served in Alaska with InterAct Ministries and as a professor at LeTourneau University before founding Missionary TECH Team (TECH Team Advantage) in 1968. I was commissioned by Mulberry Springs Baptist Church in 1969. With a BS in Industrial Engineering, Building Construction and Design, over the years I have become highly skilled in ministry administration, public speaking and mission policy. Further experience has been gained through Board membership with the Association of North American Missions and LeTourneau University.

Randy Harris

President

My wife, Connie, and I have been faith supported missionaries since 1975 and have been with two different ministries. We met and served at a Christian camp in northern Michigan for 3 ½ years. God used a major knee reconstruction to move us to another ministry in 1980 which was Missionary TECH Team. I served in Facilities Planning as an architectural draftsman for 4 ½ years. The Lord gave us opportunity to return to the same camp in 1984 to help in a different role. In March of 2014 we rejoined the TECH Team Advantage staff to assist in leadership. I began serving as President of this mission in the fall of 2015. Our commissioning church is First Baptist Church, Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

Crystal Anderson

Payroll and Accounting

It is my goal to serve the Lord wherever He leads. God has gifted me with a love for bookkeeping and working with children. I learned my accounting skills working in the office for my father’s plumbing company for about 10 years. In 2011 God led our family to the International ALERT Academy, a Christian discipleship training and service organization, where I currently work part-time doing secretarial work. In 2012 the opportunity came my way to do the bookkeeping/accounting for TECH. Working at TECH has allowed me to gain professional experience while serving missions. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, volleyball, and helping in Awana as game director.

Lynella Wiley

Business Administration

My parents, who served in pastorates and then founded a mission, instilled in me passion for evangelism and discipleship. Employment at Moody Bible Institute and at a music publisher provided invaluable experience. I graduated from Moody (1970) and became a faith-supported missionary at Drive-In Ministries as administrative assistant. In 1976 God brought me to serve alongside Birne in the mission he founded. I’ve been involved in hospitality of missionaries, extensive Mission travel and, after home schooling our sons, have served in the Business Office and wherever needed. It’s a blessing to serve on our church missions committee, ladies Bible study facilitator and small groups in our home, and mentoring women.

Connie Harris

Administration Assistant

I have been a faith-supported missionary along with my husband, Randy, for 40 years. Prior to that I worked as a secretary/receptionist in two different organizations, which helped prepare me for the registration job I held at a Christian camp for many years. I came to TECH in March of 2014 to help Randy with his responsibilities and to assist at the mission in any way I can. I come to the office several times a week to answer the phone, proofread materials, or help with other projects. Also, I am available to do cleaning and offer hospitality as needed. Our commissioning church is First Baptist Church, Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

Lowell Jenson

Volunteer Coordinator, Construction Oversight

With a BS in Construction Engineering Mgmt., I have been a member of the Construction Specifications Inst. (CSI) and certified as a CDT (Construction Document Tech.), completed the 10 Hr. OSHA Safety program, and have lead two projects through LEED certification with one achieving Platinum rating. In 1978 God led my wife and me to use our God-given abilities and training for the Lord full-time. We served with Missionary TECH Team for the next 20.5 years in several capacities. In 1999 we returned to Oregon to care for our aging mothers and worked in construction. In 2016 we retired and move to Arizona. I am excited about renewing my service with TECH, working from Arizona as Volunteer Coordinator and assisting with FP projects when needed.

Kelvin Gunnells

Vehicle Solutions Assistant, TECH Rep, Member Care

After serving for nearly 26 years as a missionary with Awana Clubs International, I never imagined I would be starting all over with a NEW ministry at the age of 64. Honestly, until recently, I had been thinking about what retirement would look like.
When an opportunity opened for us to serve with TECH Team Advantage, it became clear that this was God’s new direction for our lives.
With TECH Team being of great service to me personally during the past 26 years, I understand the value of offering technical services to Christian ministries.
While our ministry will be quite different from our service with Awana, it is becoming clear to me that God has used our previous experience to prepare us for the opportunities He is presenting to us now.

Karen Myers

Administration Assistant

My husband, Bill, and I have served the Lord in construction related short-term mission projects since 1996. Retiring in 2012, we now travel in our RV doing this full-time by volunteering at TECH for a few months and various ministries around the country. I have 6 years experience as an Administrative Specialist in the Air National Guard and years of assisting my husband with his various construction related businesses. I enjoy assisting in anyway I can at TECH, being a receptionist, helping in Graphic Services, and helping my husband in the various maintenance and construction projects he is assigned.

Facility Solutions

Les Brown, PE

Team Lead

I am a Licensed Mechanical Engineer and LEED Accredited Professional. I have been a registered PE in 39 states. I first became acquainted with TECH Team at URBANA ’79 and soon after started providing HVAC and Plumbing engineering design for Facility Solutions projects by volunteering from my home in Fort Worth, Texas. Since 2004, I have increased my TECH involvement to now spending two days a week volunteering in the TECH office as the Facility Solutions manager, while continuing to work for an engineering firm in the Fort Worth area for the remaining three days a week

Bob Shill, AIA

Senior Architect

Since graduating from the U. of Illinois with a Master of Architecture in 1963, I have been blessed to have been the architect of buildings and planned developments estimated to be over one billion dollars! In 2000, God led me to leave my secular practice and become Senior Architect at TECH. Working with Christian groups to enhance their capability of spreading the gospel worldwide has been significant and rewarding. As I have consulted with and designed projects for these ministries, I have learned the joy of following God’s commands. “Each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” I Pet. 4:10.

Ken Selden, AIA

Senior Architect

As a NYS licensed Architect since 1973, I have designed projects for churches, schools, camps, hotels, residences and commercial buildings. As years passed, my desire to more fully serve the Lord increased. In 1990 I discovered MTT on the internet and began as a part-time long-distance volunteer. I joined the MTT staff in 2002 and dedicated my career to full-time Christian service. What a blessed decision! Katie, my wife, and I were commissioned by Randall Baptist Church in 2004. I now work from our NY home office half the year; the remainder is spent in our RV at MTT headquarters and traveling to project locations scattered across the USA.

Eric Livingston

Senior Designer

I graduated from Judson University in Elgin, Illinois with an M.Arch. in 2005. The previous year had been spent at TECH as part of the Internship Program in Facility Solutions. After graduation, the Lord led me back to TECH to serve for the next 2 years. In late 2007 the Lord opened a door for me to join a local architecture firm where I have spent the last 10 years in the design and construction administration of K-12 schools and churches. In 2016 the Lord began calling me back to TECH. My wife, Katie, and I are commissioned by Fellowship Bible Church Longview where I have served on the Deacon Board, Building Committee, and Master Planning Committee.

Bill Daniel

Landscape Designer

I received a B.S. Landscape Architecture from Texas A&M in 1975. I then worked as Grounds Manager for U.T. Memphis, and later, Landscape Designer for two design building firms in the Memphis area through 1991. As the Lord led, I worked with TECH Team Advantage as a volunteer Landscape Designer from 1982 through 1991. My wife Joyce and I were commissioned by Bellevue Baptist Church in March 1992 and became full-time faith-supported missionaries at TECH. Through TECH Team our family has been blessed to serve Evangelical missions, churches, schools, hospitals, clinics, camps and other ministries through site and landscape planning. I also serve as a deacon and sing in the choir at our local church.

Bill Myers

Construction Services Rep

My wife Karen and I have served the Lord in construction related short-term mission projects since 1996. Retiring in 2012, we began serving full-time as volunteers in TECH’s Facility Solutions department (FS) and also with other construction related ministries. My role as Construction Services Representative at TECH expands its mission to include project management services during the construction phase of a client’s project. I have 21 years of experience as an Engineering Assistant in the Air Force, 15 years as a Project Manager of a major medical facility, and 17 years as a General Contractor. I hold a BA in Business Management.

Media (Graphic) Solutions

Justin Foster

Team Lead

My wife and I are both pilots. In 2012 we moved to Longview, TX. where we were introduced to TECH Team Advantage, where I felt led by the Lord to help. While in college I started writing and designing websites to help myself through flight school and I always felt like I was supposed to use this skill set for God’s kingdom. My career offers a schedule that allows me to serve at TECH putting my web design skills to work for furthering God’s Kingdom. We were commissioned by Menifee Hills Bible Church in California.

Teri Comroe

Graphic Designer

When I was called to full-time missions work God directed me to develop my artistic talents. I received a BA in Visual Communications and came to TECH in 2009 to dedicate my training and talent to helping others spread the gospel with good visual communication tools. In addition to graphic design, I have a passion for disciplining those struggling with their faith. I have foster parent training for severely abused children as well as a BA in Christian Education and a diploma in Watch and Clock Repair. New Hope Community Church in Lakewood Washington commissioned me and my husband Joe (now deceased). 

Joel Kreider

Graphic Designer, Print Production

I would categorize my journey somewhat akin to a certain child’s learning tool; the wooden box, with different shaped holes and corresponding colored pegs. Except, one arm of the star has been broken just enough, so it fits through the square opening. Still part of the group, just not the normal entrance…or peg. Not sure which color I am tho – I digress. Longview is my home town, and the extent of my college education is a course in jewelry making and repair. I volunteered at TECH for about a year. After that, I invested 2 yrs & 2 summers at www.hishill.org. What I practice now, I’ve developed through good ol’ fashioned on-the-job training, and just over 10 years of apprenticeship. Just the way it should be…for me.

David Leventry

Display Production Facilitator

After obtaining Associates in Architectural Drafting and ACADD from Lancaster Institute of Drafting, I worked building mobile home trusses and My wife Nancy and I worked with a mission called Camp of the Nations; Nancy as a secretary and I as a Printer/construction assistant. I grew up on the mission field in Venezuela, have always had a heart for missions and have always enjoyed serving others so when I heard about TECH Team Advantage it was a perfect fit for me. We were commissioned by Grace Fellowship Church of Ephrata in Pennsylvania and joined the Team in 1991. I also help teach AWANA and love helping others in my spare time.

Katie Selden

Graphics Assistant

When Ken and I joined MTT I fully expected to continue in my support role to his architectural career. Little did I know that my life skills in artistic creativity were preparing me for Kingdom work. I soon discovered my niche working with staff who helped me develop additional skills necessary to create graphic products for Christian ministries. Also, there are many opportunities to use my hospitality gifts. We were commissioned in 2004 by our home church, Randall Memorial Baptist in Western New York State. We spend spring and fall months in our motor-home in the RV park at MTT headquarters.

Paul McWhirter

AV Consultant

I felt called to mission work in 2001 before my wife and I got married. I went to Full Sail University where I got a degree in recording and joined the U.S. Air Force in 2005 as an audio engineer for the Air Force Band in Georgia. In 2010, we moved to Colorado Springs where I worked for the Air Force Academy Band. I retired in 2020 and started looking for an opportunity to serve God and His church. I found Tech Team online and engaged in conversation with them about helping churches who need A/V support. I’m excited to be a part of a team and look forward to using my experience and knowledge to spread the Gospel.

Software Solutions

Add Your Heading Text Here

Tim Meadows

Team Lead

After receiving a BS in Computer Science and gaining 17 years of experience in various aspects of the computer field including software development and support, data conversions, networking and hardware, I couldn’t shake the sense that God was leading me serve missions and churches. My wife Kay and I were commissioned by Pleasant View Bible Church in Warsaw, IN and started with TECH in 2002.  While programming and software support is the primary way Software Solutions touches other ministries, I also oversee and assist with accounting as well as coordinate the vehicle lease ministry. God has also blessed me in being able to serve as an elder at a local C&MA church.

Dan Harding

Software Programer

I graduated from North Dakota State U. with a BS in Computer Science and Mathematics. After writing software for almost 25 years in the commercial world, God called me into writing software to help missions. He led me to TECH Team Advantage, which fit my calling. My wife Renee and I were commissioned at Faith Community Church in Maple Plain, MN and we joined TECH in 2003. I have enjoyed providing quality and sometimes in depth customer support, in addition to writing software and helping with the computer needs of missions and churches in whatever way I can.

Renee Harding

Software Tester

I have a degree in Christian Education and have home-schooled our 8 children. When Dan felt called to come to TECH Team Advantage in 2003 I supported him in that endeavor. Our sending church is Faith Community Church in Maple Plain, MN. My work experience is in quality control and computer testing so with our children getting older, I am freed up to work part-time in that area at TECH, helping to improve the quality of our software packages for churches and missions. I have worked with Awana clubs for many years and know the value of having good computer record keeping software.

Vehicle Solutions

Charles Powers

Mechanic

Having been on short term mission trips, a desire to serve, and a recent job change, I heard from a friend that TECH Team Advantage was looking for help in Vehicle Solutions. I have worked 36 plus years as an automotive technician. Twenty of those years were are at car dealerships and the other sixteen years was with one of the largest private fleets. Having various certification over the years including ASE Master Tech for both cars and trucks as well as medium and heavy duty trucks. I have been with TECH since August 2015 and am looking forward to opportunities and challenges ahead.

Dan Larson

Mechanic

I have known of TECH since my college days in the late 60’s. After graduation I taught auto mechanics for VW, Audi and then at LeToureau U (LETU). My wife and I served for 24 years at Master’s Mission in NC, training missionaries for remote missions. We retired to Longview TX where I now work part-time driving bus for LETU. I had helped my brother-in-law fix up a vehicle for furlough and then try to sell it when he returned to the field. The down time and expenses were high and the resale not good. As a result, in 2012 I began volunteering my skills as mechanic with TECH’s Vehicle Solutions program, helping missionaries on furlough with reliable affordable lease vehicles.

Get INvolved and help make an impact on the world. TECH Team focuses on helping missions and churches spread the gospel and build the body of Christ more effectively.
