GBGM Missionary George Martzen Itinerating in Cal-Nevada in August

June 24, 2009

The Rev. George Martzen, a General Board of Global Ministries' missionary serving in Singapore, is itinerating in the California-Nevada Annual Conference from August 9 to 16.  His wife, the Rev. Chin Cheak Yu (also a GBGM missionary), and their son, Walter, are with him. 


While they are members of the California-Pacific Annual Conference, their ties to Cal-Nevada are strong, as Martzen grew up in the Fresno District (Dinuba First United Methodist Church).


If you would like to invite the family to speak and share their ministry in Singapore with your church, contact Laddie Perez-Galang, Conference Secretary of Global Ministries, at 510.396.2347 or


Following the itineration, Martzen will be on study leave for the fall semester at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley. The two missionaries also may be available for occasional speaking engagements between September and December, during his study leave at PSR.
