Powell, Dave & Becca

Serving the Lord in Greece

Meet the Powells

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9

David developed a heart to serve the Lord in full time mission work at a young age.  After graduating high school in 1990, he went on his first short term mission trip through Teen Missions to Malawi, Africa.  In 1993 he was a team leader with TMI to Guatemala.

Becca committed her life to Christ at a young age, but recommitted her life to the Lord while attending her first TMI team in 1991.  She and David are both from Colorado Springs, CO and graduated from the same high school.

In 1991, David and Becca went on a Teen Missions team to Greece together.  In the fall of 1993 they were married.  Two days after the wedding, they traveled on a Grey Hound bus to Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico.  For eight non-consecutive years they served as independent missionaries.  In 1996 they led a TMI team to the Olympic Games in Atlanta, GA.  Following that summer, they volunteered with TMI at the BMW School in Honduras for one year.

Since 2002 they have been raising their three children, Sarah, Gabriela, and Caleb, in Colorado.  They returned to full time missions and joined staff with TMI in 2009.

They coordinated the TMI base in Belize, Central America for 1 1/2 years and then returned to the Florida base to serve at the headquarters. In July of 2012 they moved to Turin, Italy. In December of 2013 they relocated to Athens, Greece to work among refugee families and begin a Teen Missions Boot Camp for the refugee youth.

  • Pray for our children Gabriela and Caleb as they adapt to the culture.
