Steve and Tish MacInnis
Steve and Tish MacInnis were accepted as One Mission Society missionaries on August 31, 2012, and assigned to Haiti as itinerant missionaries.
Steve travels to Haiti four to five times each year, spending collectively between three and four months out of the year in Haiti. He works with the churches and pastors of the Emmaus Fellowship of Churches. The Emmaus Fellowship is composed of more than 65 churches and 75 pastors. Steve works with these pastors and churches through visits, worship attendance, and supportive efforts to strengthen ministries of each church. He helps coordinate work projects, plan conferences, and share the Gospel in neighborhoods, working to discover solutions to basic needs of each pastor and church.
Steve served as a pastor for 32 years in the United Methodist Church in the Kentucky and Alabama–West Florida Conferences. He retired in July 2012 to pursue God’s call to the mission field.
Tish has worked in service organizations, including Habitat for Humanity and Community Living Programs for mentally and physically challenged adults. She has been involved in marketing, community planning, and organizing and coordinating large and small groups for businesses and church mission projects. Tish has also worked with community and national organizations that serve the needs of children and strengthen families.
Tish works in Haiti with the wives of the pastors of the Emmaus Fellowship to encourage them and help them develop means to support their families. Tish also works stateside, supporting and coordinating efforts to connect individuals and churches with ministry opportunities in Haiti.
Steve and Tish have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and two granddaughters.
