Thank you for taking time to look over our information. We are Timothy and Stephanie Germano, and the Lord has called us to be missionaries to the people of the Dominican Republic. We are sent out of Faith Community Baptist Church in Downingtown, PA through the World Wide New Testament Baptist Mission.
We both were blessed and had the privilege to be reared in a Christian home. I was raised in Carrollton, VA by my parents John and Beth. I was saved through the faithful witness of my Kindergarten teacher when I was six years old. The Lord began burdening my heart for His service when I was twelve, and I surrendered to His calling of missions at the age of fourteen. After high school, I attended Crown College of the Bible and received a Bachelors in Missions in May 2010. While at Crown, the Lord again placed a burden for the Dominican Republic on my heart which began in 2002 after I had taken a short term mission’s trip to that country. During college, the Lord allowed me to intern at my home church Calvary Baptist Church in Smithfield, VA and Bethel Baptist Church in Hampton, VA. After my graduation, the Lord led me to serve as the youth pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church in Downingtown, PA, and He allowed us to minister here for three years until May 2013.
Stephanie was raised in a pastor’s home and grew up in Virginia and North Carolina. Following a great physical trial faced by her mother, Stephanie placed her trust in the Lord through the witness of her father when she was a child. In her senior year, she surrendered to God’s call to missions on her life. She attended Crown College and received her Bachelors in Elementary Education in May 2010. We were married shortly afterwards in January 2011. The Lord has blessed us with two children: Landon was born on January 15, 2013, and Elena was born on November 29, 2014.
We traveled full time on deputation between August 2013 and July 2015. After setting things in order for our arrival, we moved to the Dominican Republic on October 28, 2015. Currently, we are serving alongside Ron and Chona Autrey, veteran missionaries in the country for over 25 years. Bro. Autrey started the New Life Baptist Church 15 years ago, and he is reaching the city and country through the ministries of the church, New Life Christian Academy, and Resurrection Baptist Seminary.
