Who We Are

Andy and Lindsey Messmer

I was born and raised in Plainfield, Indiana. Calvary Baptist Church of Plainfield is my home church, and also our sending church. I accepted Christ at the age of five with my mom and dad in my room. I was baptized at the age of ten. After graduating from Plainfield High School, I went to Faith Baptist Bible College and received my Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Studies. It was in college that I met and married my wife, Lindsey. We moved to Phoenix, Arizona to finish my Master of Divinity, which I completed in May, 2009 from Phoenix Seminary. We joined with ABWE in March, 2009, and started raising support for the field of Spain.  In 2011, I started work on my doctorate in New Testament Studies through Evangelical Theological Faculty in Leuven, Belgium.  We transitioned into ministry in Spain in early November of 2012. 

I was born in Connecticut and, while I was young, lived very close to my grandparents. They were both godly examples to me, and it was my grandmother that led me to the Lord when I was young. We moved to Arizona when I was nine, and we attended Northwest Baptist Church.  I was baptized at Northwest at the age of ten. At the age of 13, I understood that God wanted me to go into missions full-time. After graduating from high school, I attended Faith Baptist Bible College. There, I had the wonderful opportunity to do an eleven-month internship in Lima, Peru. This was extremely confirming for me in the area of God’s call on my life. After returning to Faith for my last year of college, I met my husband. We were open and excited about future ministry together, but we weren’t sure where God was leading us. After just a few months of marriage, God called us to Spain. We moved back to Arizona in 2007 so that we could be more involved in my home church and for him to finish his seminary training. In July of 2010, we moved back to Indiana to finish raising support and get better connected at our sending church. In November of 2012, God brought us to Spain! We are so excited and genuinely looking forward to life and ministry here.
