CTEN missionaries Dallas and Anna Lee Ward provide distance and in-the-field Biblical discipleship and crisis counseling to missionaries serving cross-culturally around the world, as well at to individuals and families in the USA.
They also facilitate times of refreshing and crisis intervention at Selah House, a facility they established to provide missionary retreat housing and intensive marriage counseling for those in crisis. There, missionaries are strengthened in their relationship with God, their spouse, family members and mission team members, and are equipped to effectively disciple others.
Dallas and Anna Lee served fourteen years in foreign missions in Mexico and Trinidad & Tobago where they labored to establish a discipleship program and to train others to disciple new believers. They served 2 years as Biblical counselors in conjunction with Global Frontier Missions, preparing missionaries-in-training for assignments around the world. Biblical discipleship and mentoring encourages individuals grow to maturity in Christ, while also equipping them to more effectively reach and genuinely love others.
In their work with marriage and families in crisis, Dallas and Anna Lee draw from their years of married life since 1986. They share from many years of intensive parenting experience gained while providing therapeutic foster care in their home to more than thirty children, who had been removed from families in crisis.
Dallas and Anna Lee have completed training in various counseling methods (SACC, NACC, ADT) and are certified marriage facilitators. They have counseled and mentored numerous individuals, married couples and families in crisis over twenty years.
The Wards have one daughter, Rebecca, who lives in Michigan with her husband David.
