Wayne Huffman was appointed senior director of Intercultural Ministries in November 2017.
Wayne brings to Intercultural Ministries decades of ministry experience in a variety of cultures. Together with his wife, Drue, he served as assistant pastor of a French Assemblies of God church in Paris, France. The Huffmans then returned to the United States to pastor a growing church in a French-speaking area of Louisiana. In 1990, they were appointed as the first resident Assemblies of God world missionaries to Romania, where they oversaw a variety of ministries.
After twelve years in Romania, the Huffmans transferred to Western Europe. They helped to develop Assemblies of God policy on ministry to the large number of immigrants and refugees entering the European continent. Their work also involved discovering refugee churches and bringing them into the Pentecostal fellowships of Western Europe.
Wayne and Drue returned to the U.S. in 2010 to serve stateside with AG World Missions. They quickly saw the changing dynamics in America’s inner cities and began reaching out to the immigrant communities in Phoenix, Arizona.
In 2014, the Huffmans transferred to U.S. Missions as Intercultural missionaries, and began ministry to the refugees and immigrants entering the United States. Wayne and Drue strongly believe the Lord is sending the nations to our doorstep to hear the gospel. The Huffmans have sought out immigrant Christian pastors and served as a bridge to help the pastors successfully plant ethnic churches in the United States. With a team of mainly Romanian immigrants, they started a children’s ministry in the inner-city projects of Phoenix, Arizona. In their time as U.S. missionaries, Wayne and Drue worked with numerous ethnic pastors to establish churches around the United States, including an Egyptian pastor to assist him starting a church in his community. The goal is to train a new generation of Arabs to reach their people in the United States for Christ.
As an experienced missionary, Wayne walks alongside Intercultural Ministries missionaries to resource and encourage them as they take the gospel to unreached people groups in the United States.
The Huffmans have a son and daughter-in-law, Adrian and Christina, who live in Arizona.
