Meet Arizona Missionaries

John & Wanne Dina

John and Wanne have been serving for over 30 years with the IMB, the previous 29 years in Mozambique. They began a new assignment in late 2023 as leaders for the Training Team for Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and are now stationed in Nairobi, Kenya. The Training Team exists to serve, support and lead Sub-Saharan Africa Teams to engage in the Missionary Task and serve alongside African churches as they make disciples of all nations for God’s glory. In addition, they connect volunteers, students and mid-term and career missionaries to teams across SSA. The Training Team equips and trains IMB personnel (new and old) for greater Kingdom impact. John and Wanne have 3 children (one serving with the IMB in Southeast Asia) and 7 grandchildren. Their home church is Royal Palms Baptist Church, Phoenix.
