Kent Linneweh


Planted 5 international churches in The NL. Coaching European church planters as well as assisting new missionaries to complete their callings.

First Mission

Kent first went to South America in 1983 on a men’s MAPS trip to build a church, and later he and Leslie took their first mission trip together to Jamaica with the youth group they were pastoring.

Becoming a Missionary

The Linnewehs didn’t have a dramatic call—they simply said “yes.” As youth pastors, they took their youth group on a mission trip each year, and after 11 trips, they came to the conclusion that they wanted to live their mission trip experience year round. They were open to most countries, but because of their hippie past, decided on The Netherlands, where they knew they could relate to many of the people.
