Israel and Debbie Minay
Israel and Debbie Minay are seasoned missionaries with a strong missionary/church planting heritage. They have served as missionaries for the Church of God for over 20 years. Their work has encompassed three continents and includes four different people groups/religions, giving them a wide scope of missionary experiences. The Minays began their ministry in the United States as church planters within the Hispanic community. Outside the U.S. they served as missionary educators/church planters in Chile for 10 years, training leaders and establishing a model church within the country. Israel and Debbie then turned their hearts toward the “unreached people” of Cambodia. Their efforts there spanned a wide range of activities. The Minays were later assigned to Albania, where they assisted in leadership development for several years. Recently, the Church of God has asked the Minays to use their church planting expertise in a new thrust of church multiplication in South America. For this reason, Israel and Debbie returned to their beloved Chile, where they began their missions career. They are currently planting a new church in the middle class area of the capital city of Santiago. God is blessing their efforts and after only a few months, they have over 100 people in attendance.
