Partnerships Missions work cannot be accomplished by a “pioneer, going it alone”. Mission- aries need partners. We are pleased to have 12 supporting churches, who partner with us in prayer and financial support. Additionally we have many individuals, who partner in prayer, some of them are also individual financial supporters. We also partner with our Mission board; without them we would be “all on our own” in so many ways.
David and Crissie Boyd The Netherlands
He who calls you is faithful,
who also will do it.
1 Thessalonians 5:24
History A quick history of our lives and ministry. David was born in The Netherlands, his parents - Herb and Ruth Boyd pioneered the field for BMM in 1954. Crissie was born in Waterloo, IA, but her parents took her to Gaudeloupe at 3 months and later to France. We met at Faith Baptist Bible College in 1976. We married in 1979. We went to the field in 1983. We worked in the town Veghel since 1985 and started a church. That work ended when the Lord led us to move in 2019. We moved to Bergen op Zoom in 2021, and we now support local churches in Southern Netherlands.

Furlough ~ 2023 We hoped to be on Furlough from March - June. However surgery has made it necessary to cancel the remainder of our time in the US. Our Furlough Schedule (below) shows what our plan was, and how we will likely pick it back up once my foot is healed. We hope to return to the field on May 22. We have “repatriation” insurance. We have a new prayercard: you can download it (click on Pictures, or wait until we come finish our furlough; probably in 2024.
