Supported Missionaries

Greenwich Baptist Church has, throughout its history, had a burden for missions support. A significant portion of the church budget is set aside each year to support missionaries both locally and worldwide. Families have been commissioned directly from the church to the mission field. Supported missionaries including Jane Kilko, Michael Austin and Victor Kuligin grew up in the church. Local mission efforts directly commissioned by the church currently include the Cumberland Evangelistic Tract Ministry through Deacon James Meyers.

Former Missionaries

Rev. John Hall

(April 15, 1906 - November 5, 1984) Rev. Hall was one of the first missionaries directly commissioned from Greenwich Baptist Church. He was born in Greenwich, NJ, to Frank E. and Hattie Roork Hall. After graduating Wheaton College in 1929, and receiving his doctorate in divinity from Southern California College, Rev. Hall chose to work in West Africa working extensively in the translation of the scripture into African languages, and establishing churches and training ministers in the area. He met and married his wife, Cuba Hill while in West Africa. The Halls served in West Africa for 51 years.

William Shillingsburg III

(October 25, 1903 – June 23, 1991) William Shillingsburg III was born into one of the wealthiest oyster business families in Greenwich. Much to the dismay of his family, he decided not to join in the family business, but to become a missionary to Columbia South Africa with the Gospel Missionary Union, now Avant Ministries. He and his wife Florence, served in South Africa from 1930 to 1972. When the Shillingsburg's retired and came off the mission field, they requested that their church support be given over to Robert and Jane Kilko to support them as they prepared to go onto the field.
