Dave and Dianne’s journey as missionaries began many years ago. Dave came to know Christ at a Campus Crusade for Christ event. After getting involved in the Campus Crusade ministry, Dave attended a conference and felt God calling him to missions. He then attended Liberty Baptist College and majored in missions.
Dianne trusted Christ at the age of 10 years old. God immediately starting tugging at her heart toward missions. As a college student, Dianne surrendered her life to Christ for missions. In 1981, Dave and Dianne got married. They have 3 children, Dave Jr., Deanna (married to Danny Pelton), and Douglas.
As mission team leaders at FCF for 6 years, God gave them a great love and respect for the people of Nicaragua, in Central America. After developing lasting relationships, and seeing God at work in their midst, it became obvious that the Lord wanted them there more than just a week or two a year. After much prayer and counsel, they committed their lives to missions on May 27th, 2004.
In June 2004, the Glazes were officially accepted by the mission board, Churches in Missions. They then attended the Spanish Language Institute in San Jose, Costa Rica and have served in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua, assisting short term teams and teaching ESL classes to help further the gospel.
In November 2008, the Lord led Dave and Dianne to become staff missionaries directly under FCF. This allows them to expand missions opportunities with other organizations and mission opportunities, as well as connect FCF short-term teams to different ministries throughout Central America.
