Serving in

Martin and Carolyn Buffenbarger

Marty is the new Global Security Advisor for CTEN serving the more than 700 missionaries world-wide. Combining Marty’s 35 years in law enforcement, the 11 years with TACTICA Ministries, and some specialized training in global security, he, along with Carolyn, will prayerfully develop and implement this new faith based position. Their desire is to put into place a system where CTEN missionaries, Pastoral Care Teams and Global Security can seamlessly coexist for the safety, wellbeing and peace of mind of the missionaries as they serve God where He has placed them.

Unfortunately, today’s world has required additional security for CTEN missionaries. Marty and Carolyn feel privileged to fill this much needed position so the field missionaries can concentrate on what God has called them to do. Ezekiel 33:1-6

Before taking this position they served with TACTICA Ministries for 8 years on short term teams in Costa Rica and Ecuador, plus nearly 3 years as full time TACTICA missionaries in Costa Rica where they trained national officers, shared the gospel, participated in Bible Studies and built relationships to better serve the nationals.
