Missionaries to Kenya since 1995

Bill and Jane

A Bit About Us

    Bill was saved in March 1977, at Bible Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Arkansas while stationed there with the Air Force.  Jane had been saved in the same church as a twelve-year-old girl.  They met while working in the bus ministry of the church and were married in August 1978.


     In September 1978, while still in the Air Force, Bill surrendered his life to preach the Gospel.  Upon completing his term of enlistment, Bill went to work as a staff member for Pastor Roy Harris at Bible Baptist Church, Jacksonville.   After working for Pastor Harris for a year, the Coleys moved to Oklahoma City, where Bill and Jane attended Oklahoma Baptist College.  Bill graduated from O.B.C. in 1987 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Theology.


     In August 1987, the Coleys moved back to Jacksonville, where Bill again served as a staff member of the Bible Baptist Church.  During his time on staff, Bill served as the Bus Director, Children’s Church Pastor, Business Manager, and Adult Sunday School teacher.  Bill and Jane both taught in the church’s Christian school, and Bill taught in the Bible College.


     After having a personal conversation during the summer of 1994 with a missionary from Kenya who was home on furlough, God began to work on Bill’s heart about becoming a missionary.  The Coleys surrendered to the mission field of Kenya in April 1995 and began their deputation later that year.  They arrived in Kenya in March 1998, and worked with another missionary for two and a half months while taking language classes before taking over the work at Bible Baptist Church of Tena Estate, Nairobi, and two other works while the other missionary went on furlough.  Later, Bro. Coley took over the works completely after this missionary resigned from the field.


    Jane has also been very active in the ministry in Kenya.  She has trained the lady Sunday School teachers, worked in the children’s ministries, taught ladies and youth girls Sunday School classes, held monthly ladies’ meetings, and taught the ladies Certificate Program in the Bible Institute.
