Friederich and Nancy Lueckhof
Serving as the Founders & Directors of CFM, the Lueckhofs are based out of their home church, GOSPEL-FORUM, in Stuttgart, Germany, where they are missionaries & part of the pastoral team. Friederich was born in a small rural town outside of Frankfurt. Nancy, from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. They met in St. Louis, Missouri and married in 1986. Friederich is a graduate of IBTI, the International Bible Training Institute in Burgess Hill, England.
As a young 23 yr. old, full of vision and dreams of being a missionary in Asia, Friederich began working in the Philippines — travelling & teaching the Bible from island to island, holding outdoor evangelistic gatherings, trekking to remote areas to speak to tribal Filipinos, and helping to establish churches and Bible schools. His work has been focused on reaching the unreached on outlying islands. Friederich brings over 30+ years of rich pastoral experience to CFM, from which church leaders and young people alike can glean. He’s completed three full marathons but now prefers long hikes, swimming (or scuba diving) in the ocean blue!
Nancy’s love for the Lord, her pioneering spirit and her creative gifting compliment Friederich as a wife & partner in the ministry. Her passion is to stir up others to love & service. As a motivator and encourager, Nancy is gifted to help others find their gifting and develop in the plan and purpose of God for their lives. She also loves to run, to play tennis, and to spend time with friends. Her current “project” is to complete an historical novel based on a true story that took place on the island of Suluan in 1937.
The Lückhofs are the proud parents of their teenage son, Benjamin, who loves everything extreme and out-of-doors!
Jhun and Beverly Sayson
Since 1996 Pastors Jhun and Beverly have served as the National Directors of CFM-Philippines. As a dedicated couple, the Saysons combine their rich educational background with a unique calling from God to pioneer & pastor a local church and oversee the ministry of CFM.
Beverly was a graduate of Northern Mindanao Bible School and then continued her studies at the Far East Advanced School of Theology in Manila where she completed her Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Religious Education degrees. In 1978, she returned to Northern Mindanao Bible School no longer as a student, but as a teacher. Travelling to Cebu City, Beverly completed another degree and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Beverly’s amazing wisdom and godly lifestyle is a beautiful example to all who know her.
Jhun graduated from Leyte Institute of Technology in Tacloban City, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Education. For ten years Jhun not only taught Industrial Arts & Science but he also actively began teaching Bible studies to college students & hospital personnel. His gift made room for him and Jhun was asked by Friederich both to administrate and teach in a Bible school in Mindanao and later in Samar. His artistic talent – as well as a talent for storytelling, are just a few of Jhun’s special abilities. His life is marked by faithfulness and passion for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Saysons have two children, Jhunarly and Jhunabevs, who are both actively involved in the ministry. The Sayson family are life-long friends and co-workers of the Lueckhofs and reside in Cebu City.
