Missionaries - Harvest Supported
Caleb & Olivia Andrews
Caleb and Olivia Andrews have been married for 4 years and on staff with Navigators for 4 years. They have two daughters, Adelynn and Charlotte.
Our mission as the Navigators ministry at the University of Northern Iowa is to fulfill the great commission in Matthew 28:18-20 on the college campus. Our goal is to share the gospel with non-believers on the college campus while also equipping the everyday Christian college student to become a disciple maker not just for their 4 or more years in college but for a lifetime of laboring for Christ.

Amanda Ferris is a passionate, dedicated follower of Jesus who loves teaching and learning. She grew up in Minnesota in a Christian family, gave her life to the Lord at age 9, and trained as an elementary educator in college. In 2011 she felt God’s call on her life to use her gifts in education as a missionary with TeachBeyond. TeachBeyond has a desire to use formal and informal education – schools, camps, language centers- to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations. The transformational education services of TeachBeyond are found in 72 different countries including many creative access countries. After 15 years of school-based educational experience, Amanda serves as a global leader supporting schools, teachers, school leaders, and other TeachBeyond projects, around the globe in all things related to curriculum. She enjoys the challenges of training teachers about how curriculum is related to God’s world and design including telling learners about the good news of Jesus Christ. She has lived in four countries – the United States, Ireland, Hungary, and now in England, in West Sussex, an hour south of London. In her free time, you can find her drinking Earl Gray tea, going on adventures, exercising, spending time with friends, listening to audiobooks, studying the Bible, and learning about how God is at work in the world. She is the niece of Harvest Bible Chapel’s member Deanna Rothwell.

The Ejawi people group are a semi-nomadic Muslim tribe of North Africa numbering around one to two million souls. Very tragically, the Ejawi are still without an indigenous church or even missionaries who speak their native language. This video shares more about the Ejawi: https://vimeo.com/587347006 (password is fishgo).
Local Iowans N and R learned about the Ejawi while studying Arabic in the Middle East and have identified a long-term pathway to live among the Ejawi, learn their language, and eventually proclaim the good news to them. N and R (with their two kids) plan to move among the Ejawi in February 2022 and start down this pathway. Although N and R have a vision and long-term strategy to reach the Ejawi, they fully recognize their absolute dependence on God’s grace to sustain them and work miracles by opening doors currently closed; moreover, N and R recognize that God most often extends His grace through by working through His Body and, therefore, they are very excited to partner with Harvest Bible Chapel in this effort! N and R want to invite you to partake in this journey in a more personal way by tracking with their efforts and praying specifically for the Ejawi via their email updates or text messages (click here to sign up).
