OUR INTERNATIONAL MISSION PARTNERS
At Christ Fellowship Cherrydale, we share good news. We believe that the gospel is to be taken to the ends of the earth. One way that we share good news is sending and partnering with missionaries all around the globe.
HEATH & ASHLEY
Prior to marriage, Heath was a member at Cherrydale, and Ashley joined when we married in 2014. Shortly after, we moved to Louisville for seminary, and started our family there. Our children are currently 5, 4, 3, and 2, and we have a baby due in January. We were appointed with Reaching and Teaching in January 2021 before moving our family to Central Asia in July 2022. For the last year and a half, we have both been learning language, getting acclimated to life here as a family, and Heath has served on staff as a Pastoral Resident at our international church.
I am originally from the Mauldin-Simpsonville area and graduated from Anderson University in 2019. In college, I spent six weeks in Prague with Summer LINK and knew I wanted to serve in Prague ever since. After college, I lived in Greenville, where I was part of the Stuckey/Pisano small group. In 2021, I finally moved to the Czech Republic to serve at the Christian International School of Prague, where I teach English 9, Professional Communication, and Christian Worldview and Ethics. I also serve as a recruiter and the admissions visit coordinator.

The Davis family has been working in Marseille, France since August 2018 after having led a church plant in the Denver, Colorado metro area from 2009-2017.
