Darin & Jill serve in the Philippines with the Free Methodist Church. Darin is Associate Professor of New Testament and Dean of Students at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary (APNTS). Jill helps the foreign students with their visa processing and also works in the library, setting up and organizing the Curriculum Resource Center (Sunday School materials).

We have around 100 students. Our students come from many different countries around SE Asia and beyond (Philippines, Korea, Myanmar, PNG, Russia, Colombia, Kenya and others).

They come from many different denominations. APNTS trains pastors, teachers, missionaries and lay leaders. We have been at APNTS since June of 2009.

Other areas of ministry include preaching opportunities for Darin; prayer ministry and mentoring for Jill.

We are amazed and blessed by our students in so many ways. Some of them leave their families for 3 years to attend seminary. Many continue to participate in ministry while being full-time students. Classes are taught in English—even though that is a second or third language for most of the students—as that is the common language.
