Walt & Karen Troup
Pastor Walt & Karen Troup arrived at A Place of Hope Africa in November 2014, following God's calling on their lives to take the gospel to the nations. Every day, they care for the children by giving them a safe place to stay, nourishing meals, an education at a private school, and most importantly, the children see and hear about the love of Jesus Christ.
The Troups also oversee two church plants including Glorious God Baptist Church in Opi, and Cornerstone Church in Opi which Walt pastors and was planted in 2016.
Prior to arriving on the mission field, Pastor Walt served as an Executive Pastor in Texas and Karen led mission teams around the world to places like El Salvador, Guatemala, and India. The Troup's are sent by Temple Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas where Doug Rife is the Pastor. ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
