LENDAHAND Mission Teams was founded in 2000 by Pastor Bobby Hoyle and his wife Kathryn. Since that time, our volunteers have completed more than 90 missions, including 35 construction projects and more than 55 medical and humanitarian projects across 12 countries.

Since joining a mission team in 2019 and the Board the following year, I have experienced first hand how God has used LENDAHAND to come along side of local churches, pastors and missionaries to transform communities and the hearts of those who answer God’s call to serve on the mission field.

Now as President of LENDAHAND, I am blessed to benefit from the ongoing counsel of our two previous Presidents, who still serve on our Board, and to work closely with a group of men and women who bring decades of experience to the organization. Our mission remains to glorify God and provide everyone a mission experience that changes lives while defending the cause of the poor and needy. If you are sensing God leading you to serve others through missionary work, please contact us to learn more about how you can partner with LENDAHAND Mission Teams in fulfilling the Great Commission work given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.
