Mike & Murf Gaston

Director of Member Care, Converge IM


Mike and Murf Gaston were members here at Grace Baptist for 14 years, after serving with Converge International Ministries for 15 years as church planters in Cameroon and France. That cross-cultural experience allows them to bring valuable insight to their current role on the Converge Member Care Team, providing pastoral care and encouragement to Converge missionaries around the world. They are the primary caregivers for Converge workers based in North America, and Mike is the director of the Member Care team. They also provide their home in beautiful Northern Arizona as a place of ministry. Murf's hospitality gifts are put to good use as they welcome their colleagues on home assignment for a few days of refreshment, and whatever pastoral care that their guests might require. Both of the Gastons have come to realize the value of Sabbath rest, and are eager to encourage their Converge colleagues to explore that gift and make it a regular part of their lives. Mike is also developing a training program to teach Converge's international partners to better understand and preach God's word.
