Greer Kendall was, in a sense, born as a foreign missionary. His involvement in family missions began when he was born in the country of Zambia, Africa while his parents were serving as full-time missionaries. In addition to the 16 years his parents served as career missionaries on two continents, upon returning to America, they continued to coordinate and lead multiple short-term mission teams of American families to Asia and South America over a period of another 8 years until his dad’s health began to fail. This was the beginning of Greer’s direct and personal involvement in international family missions and showed him the power of God to transform people’s lives as they submit to the command of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Great Commission to go into the all the world and make disciples.
Greer grew up attending the First Baptist Church in Dallas and personally accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior when he was 14 years old. Upon graduating from First Baptist Academy high school and then Baylor University with a degree in finance, he started his own financial accounting firm, while also taking classes at Dallas Seminary. In the June of 2000, Greer returned to his birth country of Zambia for the first time as an adult since leaving it when he was six years old. That week he participated in a one week, evangelistic church planting mission trip that would forever change his life, and embark him on the course of becoming the missionary he was born to be.
Following that trip, the Lord laid it on his heart to incorporate Family Legacy Missions International in September of 2000 to serve as a catalyst and facilitator for families to become directly involved in short-term international missions to the Orphans of Zambia. In 2001, Greer officially transferred his business to another advisor and since then he has devoted all of his time to help families live out the Great Commission by becoming “Families on Mission” as they go out into the world together with the Good News of Jesus. Since the year 2000, Greer has taken or led 20 different mission trips to Zambia and coordinated a growing number of families to go together, grow together and leave a lasting legacy of serving God by serving the orphans of Zambia.
Greer and his wife, Susan, have been married since 1990 and have three children: Jonathan (born in 1993), Karis (born in 1995), and Kaleigh (born in 1999) that make up their own family legacy. They are members of Coppell Bible Fellowship in the Dallas area. His passion is Jesus, missions, families and orphans. The family legacy he hopes to leave is one of taking up his cross, seeking first the Kingdom of God, and following hard after the glory of Jesus as he instills in his children and families everywhere the power of God to transform lives through direct and personal involvement in fulfilling the Great Commission.
