Easlon, Joshua & Rachel - DETROIT, MICHIGAN
Joshua and Rachel Easlon were approved as World Baptist Fellowship missionaries in August 2017.
Josh was saved as a child in his home in Paris, Texas. He attended East Paris Baptist Church until he moved to Denton, Texas to attend the University of North Texas where he received his first Bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2010. After moving back to Paris, Texas, they started attending Victory Baptist Church and felt the call to full-time ministry in 2015. They served as youth leaders from 2015-2017 at Victory Baptist, but then felt the call of missions on their lives after visiting Mike & Christie Starling's mission in Huachichil, Mexico in 2016. Josh graduated from Arlington Baptist College in 2017 after following God's call on their lives for missions.
Rachel was raised in a non-denominational home, but was saved at the age of 23 at Victory Baptist Church. She graduated with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in 2014 and started taking courses through Arlington Baptist College in 2015.
The Easlons initially were called to the country of Nigeria where they served for a short time. After the door to church plant in Nigeria was closed, the Easlons felt God calling them to plant churches in the area of Detroit, Michigan. In 2019, they transitioned to the WBF Home Missions Program to pursue God's call for planting churches in the U.S.A. Their sending church is Victory Baptist Church in Paris, Texas.
They have one son, Blace and one daughter, Willow.
