Global Woman Highlight | Faith Creech
           

My name is Faith Creech and I am a wife, a mom, and a grandmother of two precious grandsons, ages six and eight. My husband and I were in the pastorate for twenty eight years serving churches in the US and Canada both as church planters and in established churches. The Lord then called us to the field and we moved to Southeast Asia. There we served in seminaries, where I taught and mentored women from countries all over Asia. Many of these women were global workers who were deeply wounded and hurting and needed someone to love and listen to them. I became their second mom and they became my daughters. The Lord blessed me with these precious women and I learned so much from them. We had such wonderful times of deep and meaningful sharing together. The abuse and treatment that most of these women had endured from childhood through adulthood, and surprisingly in the field was horrific, but through the Lord’s help many of these women found healing.

My husband and I retired from the field at the end of 2014 and moved to the high mountains of Colorado. We live at 10,000 feet and enjoy the beauty of God’s majestic mountains and valleys. We began a new ministry in January of 2015 ministering to hurting pastors and spouses and global workers, both single and married, in the US and around the world. We also teach classes on church and team health and how to prevent conflict. My husband wrote the book Toxic Church and we teach classes using his book. We host couples and singles at our home where critically wounded ministry servants can come for healing. The joy of my life is mentoring and helping women who are hurting. The Lord has blessed me with a Godly husband to serve beside me. We have been blessed to serve the Lord together for many years. During those years, He has allowed us to go through suffering at times so we are better able to minister to His servants in their suffering. There are so many in ministry who are hurting. Pray the Lord opens doors and leads us to those in ministry whom we might help.

  • Hi Faith,

    How might I learn more about the new ministry you began in Colorado? I’m a missionary in Guatemala and will be back in Colorado visiting my home church and seeking some refreshment/direction as I am currently not with an official sending organization. I’m interested in connecting with you to hear more about your ministry if that is alright with you.

    Thank you,
    Rachelle
