The Owen Family
Missionaries in the Philippine Islands
Timothy and Gera Owen began ministering on her home island of Malapascua, Philippines, in 2006. The Owens made several trips to the Philippines throughout their 2-year deputation. In January of 2009 they were able to begin serving full-time.
Timothy and Gera spent 10 years growing Malapascua Missionary Baptist Church. During this, they were able to see many saved and join the church, including some members of Gera’s family. The ministry on Malapascua moves forward with the help of Brother Joel Lumaras, a Filipino national, as the pastor. The Owen Family is now working to start a new church on the island of Masbate.
Timothy and Gera Owen have been married since 2004 and are members of Anchor Baptist Church in Pisgah Forest, NC. They have 3 children, Julia, L.E. and Aaron.
