Missionary Staff

Our Team

TECH’s Team is comprised of both full-time and part-time support-raised missionary staff (they raise their own funds), volunteers, and retirees who have chosen to dedicate their technical skills, passions, and training to the work of spreading the Good News of God’s love and salvation as they seek to make a difference for eternity.

Support raised staff

The bulk of our staff, like any other missionaries, receive their wage through donations or monthly support. These come from other individuals, businesses, and churches. Our staff receive 100% of the support they raise.

Missionaries you can partner with

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).

Bill– 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 Missionary TECH as a volunteer Landscape Designer from 1982 through 1991.

Justin & Lee Foster

Justin – VICE PRESIDENT

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.

We are now working on raising funds so I can serve full time.

Mark & Debbie Friend

Mark– MEDIA SOLUTIONS TEAM LEAD Debbie– GRAPHIC DESIGNER

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.

Dan & Renee Harding

Dan– SOFTWARE PROGRAMMER

Renee– 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.

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.

Randy & Connie Harris

Randy– PRESIDENT

Connie– ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

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.

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.

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 & Nancy Leventry

David – 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.

Eric & Katie Livingston family

Eric – ARCHITECT

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 Facilities Planning. 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.

Tim & Kay Meadows

Tim – SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS TEAM LEAD

Kay– PAYROLL & ACCOUNTING

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.

My husband Tim and I joined TECH Team in 2002. Since then, I have done many things including homeschooling our three sons, working as a tax preparer, and doing part-time accounting at both a university and a CPA office. I am thankful to be back in the TECH Team office again using my accounting degree and working with others to assist missions and churches. Serving and helping others has always been a focus of my life. I believe it is a gift that God has given me.

Bill & Karen Myers

Bil – CONSTRUCTION SERVICES REP, DIRECTOR OF MAINTANANCE

Karen – ADMINISTRATION ASSISTANT

My wife Karen and I have served the Lord in construction related short-term missions projects since 1996. Retiring in 2012 we served full time as volunteers in TECH’s Facility Solutions area and also with other construction related ministries. In 2021 we came on full time at just TECH Team. My roll as Construction Services Representative includes project management services during the construction phase of a client’s project. I also oversee the maintenance of the office, RV part, shop, grounds and TECH’s other property.

I have 21 years of experience as an Engineering Assistant in the Air Force, 15 years as Project Manager of a major medical facility, and 17 years as a General Contractor. I hold a BA in Business Management.

My husband, Bill, and I have served the Lord in construction related short-term mission projects since 1996. Retiring in 2012, we now traveled in our RV doing this full-time by volunteering at TECH for a few months and various ministries around the country. Now we live in Longview, Texas where Bill serves full-time with TECH and me part time. 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.

Ken & Katie Seldon

Ken, AIA – SENIOR ARCHITECT

Katie– GRAPHICS ASSISTANT

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 TECH Team Advantage (then called Missionary TECH Team) on the internet and began as a part-time long-distance volunteer. I joined the TTA 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 TTA headquarters and traveling to project locations scattered across the USA.

When Ken and I joined TTA 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 TTA headquarters.

Birne & Lynella Wiley

Birne – FOUNDER

Lynella– BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

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.

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.
