Fred & Carol Cromer

Fred was called to missions while at Bartlesville Wesleyan College (now Oklahoma Wesleyan University). When Fred and Carol married, Carol accepted Fred’s call to missions. After pastoring at Central Wesleyan Church in Kansas City, Missouri, for ten years, they left for Africa in 1991 with their four children.

Fred and Carol have been working with Global Partners in theological education and literacy since 1991. They have served in Zambia and eSwatini; and currently, they are working with The Wesleyan Church of Uganda. Fred teaches at the Wesleyan Bible Institute in Busia and is serving with the Ugandan leaders to develop The Wesleyan Church of Uganda. Carol is working with adult literacy through Literacy and Evangelism International, helping to train adults to read and write in their mother tongue.

Carol’s life verse: I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death (Philippines 3:10 NIV).

Fred’s life verse: And the thing you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2 NIV)
