Meet Our Team
Sam Fisher – Director
Sam Fisher has been a long time friend of OCF having supported the ministry through prayers, going on trips with OCF, and financially. Having served as a missionary, pastor, and ministry leader for many years Sam brings a wealth of experience to the OCF team. While Sam loves all things involving the work of the Kingdom of God, missions has always had a special place in his life. However, his greatest love is his wife Yvette, followed closely by his family, especially the four grandchildren. Sam is “excited to see all God has in store for OCF and all those connected to this ministry, and looks forward to getting to know each member personally and how OCF can serve you!”
David spent the first half of his working life in the financial world as a banker and tax adviser, the second half as a pastor and missionary. God has been so faithful and merciful throughout David’s journey, especially the last few years as he has overcome cancer through his grace. David’s heart has always been with missionaries and he is “honored and humbled to be part of OCF.” The love of David’s life the past 39 years has been Renee, who is a loving wife and mother and the math mentor/teacher trainer in West Georgia for the State of Georgia.
Ike Roberts – Board Member
Ike Roberts has been committed to the support of OCF since our early days. Ike has spent a life of service in various areas of ministry including pastor and missionary. He is currently pastor in Clarksville, Texas and also the founder and director of Hands of Calvary Ministry, which focuses on outreach and men’s discipleship and restoration ministry.
Originally from Mexico, Jorge and Elda grew up in Christian homes. After accepting the call to move to the U.S. to serve as pastors of a growing Hispanic church called Mundo De Fe, the Avilas have lived in Tyler, TX for 23 years. Mundo De Fe is part of the International Faith World ministries network. The couple has also participated as invited speakers in different congregations. Their ministry has a strong calling for missionary work and has been a blessing to other countries like Cuba and Mexico, where they have traveled to share the Gospel and aid the missions in the construction of two churches. They have also spiritually and economically collaborated with the orphanage Casa Hogar Al Abrigo de Dios AC in Cuernavaca, Mexico where Elda’s parents provide love and support to needy children as the directors of the orphanage.
They’re the parents to Jordan and Milca, who serve alongside them in the ministry.
James Walker – Founder
Starting as a dream in his heart to assist missionaries and ministries in sharing the message of Jesus with all people, Outreach Christian Fellowship was founded.
Leading OCF for over twenty years, Brother Walker traveled thousands of miles and facilitated hundreds of thousands of dollars into the work of the Kingdom of God around the world.
With multitudes of lives having been impacted, there are still more souls to be saved, children fed, churches strengthened, and missionaries equipped and encouraged.
Building on the foundation Brother Walker faithfully built, OCF is committed to do more than ever in seeing this work continue and expand.
With your prayers, participation, and generous donations this will be a reality.
OCF founder James Walker retired in 2018. Since then the OCF Board along with Thressea Stanley stepped up to take on the task of piloting OCF forward. Although there have been great challenges, God has been greatly faithful, and as Brother James liked to say “The dreams of OCF are bigger than the memories!”
God offered Thressea the great opportunity of serving as a missionary abroad in Australia and Tanzania before joining the OCF team in early 2007. Since that time, she has served the organization in a number of positions. She feels greatly blessed to be doing what she loves.
When not in the office, Thressea is happiest when spending time with her two grown girls, Rachel and Audrey; especially when they are hiking, camping, or otherwise exploring wilderness mountains anywhere in the world.
