Jeff & Charlotte Buell both put their trust in Christ in elementary school and grew up in homes where they were encouraged to grow in their relationships with the Lord. Since that time, they have both had the opportunity to serve in various churches and para-church ministries.
Hebrews 10:24 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Jeff and Charlotte are passionate about encouraging others to live missionally by meeting them where they are and providing experiences and training that will propel them into living the life God has planned for them. As ARM missionaries, they are focused on training and equipping the next generation to lead the church and fulfill the Great Commission. They do this by: connecting followers of Christ with one another in ways that encourage collaboration and excellence in ministry; partnering with existing organizations and churches to provide catalytic experiences that promote the discovery of our identity in Christ and life change in individuals; and supporting the expansion and multiplication of missions and new ministries both locally and internationally.
After Charlotte graduated from the University of North Carolina and Jeff graduated from Texas A&M, they met in Fort Worth while Charlotte was completing law school and Jeff was attending Dallas Theological Seminary. They married in 1997, shortly after both of them completed their degrees. After briefly working as an attorney, Charlotte chose to devote her time and energy to disicpling their four young children and serving in ministry alongside Jeff.
Jeff served as a student ministry pastor for 20 years and then for 5 years with a church-planting mission organization where he led mission trips and trained church-planting pastors and leaders. Each of them have extensive experience in leadership, teaching, missions, and discipleship. They have both had the privilege of serving and supporting missionaries on every continent except Antarctica. As their kids are getting older and beginning to be launched into adulthood, Jeff and Charlotte are excited about the opportunity to use their skills and experience to multiply more disciples.
