Fitzsimmons 2014 webIt has been a thrill for us, Rodney and Cathy Fitzsimmons, to serve the Lord in Gonaives, Haiti, since 1983.  Our ministry here is to establish New Testament local churches through evangelism, discipleship, and training and ordaining national pastors.  We have had the privilege of planting 13 churches, and our prayer is that the Lord will allow us to plant at least one new work every year as we work with men we are training. 

We are preparing nationals through the teaching of God's Word in the Berean Baptist Bible School and Seminary which has an enrollment of 450 students.  We established this school in the late 90s, and the Lord has given us great opportunity to instruct believers for service in local churches.

We raised our two children, Lydia and Joshua, here in Haiti.  They now live in Indiana and are both married.  We have five precious grandchildren.  Both our son and son-in-law have been called to preach.
