From STM to Global Discipleship: A Peruvian Case Study
Mr. Farrell is the Director of Presbyterian World Mission since 2007, having started his mission service at age 23 as a volunteer in mission in Zaire. Since that time he has served for a decade in Peru with a mission focus on the problem of lead poisoning of children coming from smelting operations there. Service in Africa began in the late 1980’s in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In Africa his work with African mission partners dealt with health, evangelism, general education, and theological education. Farrell received his B.A. in political science and Latin American studies from the University of Texas at Austin and his M. Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary in cross-cultural studies. Hunter and his wife, Ruth, have three children, Ndaya, Billy, and Andrew. He spent a year studying in Lima, Peru, at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. Farrell is fluent in English, Spanish, French, and Tshiluba (a language spoken in the south central Congo).
