Stephen and Penny Sojourner

Stephen and Penny joined Texas Baptist Missions in 2019 after serving overseas in West Asia with a Bible translation organization. They have a heart for building relationships that lead people to hearing Good News about Jesus, and for including other believers in Great Commission endeavors.

Stephen serves as Partnership Facilitator with the North American Azerbaijani Network (www.azerbaijanipartnership.org). Our vision is that Azerbaijanis will see a Jesus movement in this generation, where every family is touched by the Gospel, and every community has the witness of thriving locally-led churches.

Penny serves as ESL Program Director at Prairie Creek Baptist Church in Plano, Texas (www.pcbcplano.org/english). This ESL program has served a diverse group of Internationals from places like Iran, Kazakhstan, Egypt, China, Russia, Armenia, Venezuela, Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico.

Support our ministry

Prayer is always the first and most vital way to get involved. Pray that God will reveal Himself to Azerbaijanis as well as Internationals in North Texas through visions, dreams, Scripture in their heart language, social media distribution of Gospel media, and the life and witness of believers.

Financial investment in our ministry so that we can devote ourselves to full-time Gospel work. Most of our financial partners are individuals, couples and families who contribute monthly to our ministry budget.

Advocacy through missions education and church-wide prayer for Azerbaijanis and Internationals. Stephen is available to make church presentations, to preach on Sundays, and to lead “Sharing the Gospel with Muslims” evening or weekend workshops. 

Serving as a faith ambassador to Azerbaijanis in Houston or Dallas through intercultural experiences like Novruz and Ramadan celebrations, friendship and hospitality, and ESL ministry.

Going with a group on a prayer trip to Azerbaijan, or as a future missionary to Azerbaijan with Texas Baptist Missions or another Great Commission sending organization.
