Missionary in Residence
Chris and Kellie Cole
Chris and Kellie Cole have served for 12 years with Reachglobal in both Turkey and Thailand supporting God's work of bringing good news to unreached peoples through teaching, mentoring, and caring for MKs. They love fostering a sense of community, where believers can love and be loved, for the purpose of maturity in Christ. They have three children, Jessica who is married to Zach Harbold and currently living in Pennsylvania, Cameron who is a current JBU student, and Cory who will be a freshman at JBU this year.
The Coles are happy to be able to open their hearts and home to the JBU MK community, and provide encouragement and support to our Missionary kids. They will also provide a “mission’s awareness” for all of us here at JBU.
Every year, JBU has the opportunity to host a different missionary couple. These men and women take a year from their usual mission field and come serve right here on campus! Their primary purpose is to advocate missions at JBU. They assist with missions opportunities, such as World Awareness Week and also play a critical role helping Missionary Kids adapt to life in the US.
