Jeff and Susana Turnbough

Jeff and Susana direct the International Training Alliance (ITA), seconded by FWBIM. ITA is a partnership of seven mission organizations that provides a unique ministry to frontline missionaries and national workers no other organization in the world offers—encouragement with practical leadership skills. 190 mission agencies have sent leaders to the 94 courses ITA has offered in 35 different nations, equipping over 3,000 leaders worldwide. The training is in English, French and Spanish, with requests to do it in Chinese, Korean, and Arabic.

The Turnboughs were appointed as missionaries to Spain in 1981. They served as missionaries, field leaders, regional directors for Europe, and director of field operations. In 2015, the ITA Council asked them to lead ITA. Operating on a minimal budget, since the beginning ITA leaders have always been missionaries with their own support, which is why Jeff and Susana need our support. They will touch hundreds of workers on mission each year, who in turn will touch thousands of people around the world.
