Connecting the Church in Mission

Gail Quigg 1.jpgGail and Steve are the parents of two daughters, Heather and Kathy, both of whom were born in Nigeria.
Gail Z. Quigg is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church serving with her husband, Stephen, as a mission advocate for the North Central Jurisdiction of the denomination. She is based in Ohio.  

Mission advocates are missionaries assigned to assist annual conferences, districts, and local churches in the United States to understand and participate in global mission. Their work has a particular focus on mission personnel, including support of missionaries through the Advance for Christ and His Church.  
Gail and Stephen worked for many years in aviation ministries, 20 of those years in Africa, followed by international support of such mission. Gail served as bookkeeper, radio operator, teacher, and flight coordinator. She has also provided extensive Bible instruction in a range of settings. She traveled extensively with Stephen in the promotion of aviation ministries.  

Gail earned a degree in secondary education from Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky. She has also completed coursework at Asbury Theological Seminary in Bible teaching and cross-cultural lifestyles for families. However, Gail attributes most of her “practical education” to her 20 years of living and working in Africa.
Gail and her husband Steve began their missionary careers in 1979 in the small village of Bambur, Nigeria, where they worked with Air Muri, the aviation branch of the Nigerian United Methodist Church. Their next assignment was in the Democratic Republic of the Congo working with Wings of Caring, the flight ministry of the Central Congo Annual Conference. Reflecting on her time in the Congo, which included two evacuations and being away from their Kananga base for two years, Gail says, “The goal for the aviation program was to support the work and growth of the church. By filling in where needed, I could do my part in helping the system work smoothly. Regardless of the gifts that God gives us, there are ways to use those gifts in mission.”
