About Us

Denise and Hal AbnerDenise and Hal Abner both grew up on the Mission field in Papua New Guinea. This experience has given Denise and Hal a passion for missions. They have lead numerous mission teams from various churches throughout the years. They have led teams with LENDAHAND. In 2017 Bobby Hoyle, President and Founder, passed the baton to Denise Abner to become the President of LENDAHAND Mission Teams; Hal serves as the Director of Operations. Together they work to make each LENDAHAND Mission run smoothly. Each mission is bathed in prayer, and God has blessed with His favor.

LENDAHAND is not affiliated with any denomination, thus allowing us to work with many denominations. LENDAHAND Mission Teams has a governing Board of Directors consisting of nine members. Each of these men and women are dedicated members of their home churches representing Presbyterian, Nazarene, Pentecostal Holiness, Calvary Chapel, and one Independent group. LENDAHAND is committed to the needs of suffering humanity whether spiritual or physical. We respond to needs as requested with whatever skills, talents, or resources we have available.

As of October 2017 LENDAHAND has sent 84 Teams into Central and South America to help Build, Serve, and Heal.
