Russell and Carla Frazier

Serving in Kenya on Global Deployment | Africa

Russell and Carla Frazier serve as Global Missionaries in Nairobi, Kenya at Africa Nazarene University.  Russ serves as a senior lecturer in the religion department, and Carla serves as an assistant in the finance department.

The Fraziers are no strangers to missions.  From 1998 to 2005, they served as missionaries on the Africa Region. They lived in Kigali, Rwanda and served the Great Lakes region of Africa, including the countries of Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Burundi. Carla administered the Child Sponsor-ship program in the Great Lakes region and assisted in the administration of the Bible institute.  Russ served in a number of different roles: the coordinator of theological education, coordinator of Nazarene Literature, district superintendent, mission coordinator, and assistant to the Field Strategy Coordinator.  In 2005, Russ and Carla resigned from the Global Mission contract to return to the States so that Russ could finish the Ph.D. and to provide more options for the education of their children in the English language. However, Africa was deeply imbedded within their hearts. 

Now, they are excited to serve the Lord in Kenya at Africa Nazarene University. You can find more about their story at  Russ and Carla would love to share their story with your church.  They desire to partner with you and your church in this ministry. The Fraziers have open dates from June until August 2017 when they plan their return to Kenya. 

If you would like to have them for a service, please check out their schedule at and feel free to contact them.  They are willing to visit any sized church.   They simply want to share our story of God’s leadership in their lives.

Going Where the Church is Not Yet

Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
