Lance A. Wilbur

Co-Director

Lance, Co-director of Tekoa Missions, would be described by those close to him as a faithful servant of the Lord. One dedicated to his family and loyal to friends. Those who understand the pits from which God has drawn him possess evidence of redemptive power. Ultimately, he desires a ministry glorifying God both within the home and without, resulting in the multiplication of the Kingdom. He miraculously became a Christian at the age of 20. Since that time he has been fully entrenched in various forms of gospel medical missionary evangelism. Lance is blessed with his wonderful wife, Evita, and four healthy children, Zariah, Adianna, Sophia, and Lance Jr., he is a walking miracle and it is this most-humbling realization that fuels his desire to seek and serve those who Christ has bidden; educating and arming others to do the same.

 

 Dwayne Lemon

Co-Director

 

Dwayne, Co-Director of Tekoa Missions, was brought by the Lord out of the darkness of a life of entertainment in the Hip-Hop and R&B culture as a professional dancer and choreographer to become a humble participant in bearing the light of God’s love in his local vineyard and beyond. More than anything else, Elder Lemon desires to make those who are young in age and youthful in experience know that you can truly live a surrendered life. He believes that medical missionary work and the three angels’ messages will help us prepare to meet the Lord. Elder Lemon is married to Alexandra, and they have four children: Jahred, Kayla, Kaleb, and Jada.
