Missionary Profile: Ann and Bruce Borquist

Ann and Bruce Borquist serve as regional missionaries with partner Baptist conventions in Southeast Asia, including Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, New Zealand, and the Philippines. They work alongside national leaders to build capacity in servant leadership, church-based community and economic development (including social entrepreneurship) and cross-cultural missionary training. Ann and Bruce have served since 1987 (that’s 29 years) in the Philippines, the U.S. and Brazil. Most recently, they have worked with the National Baptist Convention of Brazil as co-coordinators of the Integral Mission Network and the office of Leadership and Ministry Development. They also have helped equip Brazilian missionaries to share the good news of Jesus Christ in Brazil and around the world.

They praise God for the opportunities they have had to encourage God’s people. Looking ahead, they see that God is preparing new opportunities for service and learning.

The Borquists have two adult children, Elena and Asa.

Ann and Bruce ask us to please pray:

  • For yourself and your church.  Ask God to kindle in you a passion to declare and be the good news of Jesus to those who need it in your community and your world.
  • For us as we adjust to a new ministry in a new place.   Leaving Brazil after 11 years was hard, but we are excited to see what God will do in and through us in SE Asia.
  • That God will use us to build up the partner conventions of SE Asia that invited us to strengthen their programs in servant leadership training, evangelism and discipleship, church-based community development, and cross-cultural ministry.
