Their Ministry Focus
Timothy and Angelita Downing have stepped into a vibrant ministry with more than 16 congregations across the country. Timothy facilitates and teaches in the Church of God seminary, SETE, training pastors and church leaders. Angelita assists with the Children of Promise child sponsorship program.
Timothy was raised in the Breiel Boulevard Church of God in Middletown, Ohio. A passion for missions was planted in his heart by his parents Darlene and Cordell and his grandmother Ruth. He received his call to ministry on a short-term mission trip to Panama. To prepare for this calling, he attended Mid-America Christian University.
Angelita was born in Wisconsin to Manuel and Tomasa Garcia. She worshiped and served in her local congregation from a young age. She transferred to Mid-America Christian University during her sophomore year of college, where she and Timothy met.
After getting married, the Downings served Christ in pastoral ministry in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Ohio. Tim was exposed to the work of the Church of God in Ecuador through the ministry of longtime Global Strategy missionaries Jon and Karen Lambert. And the call to missions in Ecuador was strengthened and confirmed through multiple missions trips to Ecuador. The Downings are the parents of five children.
The Downing family prayer is: “Allow us to see Christ clearly so we may follow him closely.” It is that heart cry that that has led them to missionary service in Ecuador.
