Our Missionaries



Matt and Amy Baldwin

Thailand

Matt and Amy Baldwin are Commission to Every Nation missionaries serving in Thailand since April 2017. Both had a passion for missions since before they met. Amy has specifically felt a call to the nation of Thailand since she was 14, so they knew before they were even married that Thailand was in their future. Their first two and a half years in Thailand were spent studying Thai language and culture and learning how to serve cross-culturally through serving with various ministries in Bangkok. 

“Our deep desire is that the Lamb who was slain would receive the full reward of His suffering in Thailand. Our passion is to proclaim the gospel of God and make disciples of Christ from among the Thai. We want to see wholehearted lovers of Jesus who arise from the ashes into the fullness of what God has created them to be (Romans 15:15-20). We focus on church planting ministry and want to empower Thais to plant churches in the future. We are beginning by planting a church in the small town of Map Ammarit in Chumphon Province. Our primary ministry is reaching out to our community, discipling church members and working to raise up leaders in the church.

“We believe God has sent us to Chumphon province, which is called the Gateway to the South, to be a part of reaching the Southern region of Thailand with the Gospel. Despite over 200 years of Protestant missions’ work, the nation of Thailand still is less than 1% Christian and the Southern Region has been especially challenging. We believe this is Thailand’s hour for harvest and want to be a part of it.”

Matt and Amy have been married for 9 years and have two beautiful children, Jedidiah and Alizah.

Jonathan and Ashleigh deClet

Montreal, Canada


Maildeclet 2

Originally sent by the Evangelical Free Church of America, through their missions arm ReachGlobal, the deClet family (Jonathan, Ashleigh, Kodee, Marek and Mahieu) were able to go to serve in Montreal, Quebec Canada in August of 2017. In 2021 they joined a second sending organization and sponsor, Evangelical Free Church of Canada. Through the partnership and help of these two agencies they would be allowed to remain in Montreal, QC and see the transformative work of Christ in their city. When they joined the city team in 2017, they were aided by two families who had been working in Montreal for 30+ years. They were welcomed into a network of organizations, churches, and people wanting to see this province impacted by Jesus Christ. Through one such partner, Christian Direction (www.direction.ca), Jonathan found a way to use much of what he did in their home state of Colorado, leveraging those giftings for those in Montreal.

They have found there is such a need for people to just be present in Montreal, a city of 4.7 million, as believers to walk with their neighbors, friends, and colleagues through the challenges of life and share the hope only Christ brings. Through his work within Christian Direction, where they are able to bring the Gospel through intentional, meaningful, and engaging outreach, Jonathan has been able to work within three spheres: working as a volunteer coordinator within a food bank, finding youth jobs as an employment counselor at a young adult-ed center, and building bridges and helping resource youth groups in the downtown Montreal area. He has also been working as a small-group leader for their church, Église du Plateau, and plays the bass for them every other Sunday!

Ashleigh has involved herself with organizations working with women being trafficked, abused and/or exploited. She has found an outlet for her amazing artistic skills by selling her work and donating the profit from sales to the organizations that work with these victims. She has recetly started working on the board of a pregnancy resource center, helping at-risk moms on the island. She has also been working with Montreal CCM (Chinese Christian Mission) on a mental health curriculum for churches, aimed at their youth and the de-stigmatization of mental illness in the church.

Join them in prayer as they hope to see others transformed by Christ in their city.
