Todd and Karla Poulter Leadership Development, Wycliffe Bible Translators
Todd’s leadership development role in the Wycliffe Global Alliance, allows him to have a part in the lives of men and women like Florence from Kenya (a creative communicator), Ruben from Romania (a young visionary), David from Colombia (a leader in the Latin American mission movement), and Simon from Singapore (who oversees Wycliffe’s ministry in the Asia/Pacific region). Through these relationships, Todd and Karla have learned the value of “inefficient lingering,” spending unstructured time together with younger leaders that provides opportunity for significant conversations to happen.
They love being part of their local church in Hawaii where the pastoral team are the age of their own sons. There are plenty of younger men and women and families to befriend, including the first missionaries that the church recently sent out.
Last year’s Joy to the World gift enabled them to extend hospitality to a variety of people as well as helping cover medical expenses.
