Roger and Becky Buckland have been leaders of MLS from its foundation in 1995 till 2012 when they receieved appoitment to serve as Regional Director for Pacific. When they arrived to Prague, they have already had long term experience in ministry. After five years of pastoring in the United States, they received a missionary call
and appointment to the Philippine Islands in 1984. They spent 9 years overseeing
approximately 380 churches on the island of Mindanao, laboring as the president
of the Apostolic Institute of Ministries in Davao City, and serving on the Executive
Board of the United Pentecostal Church (Philippines).
In August 1993 they felt God´s calling to come to serve people in Czech Republic and Slovakia. During their twenties years of ministry they really left big part of their heart here while they were building this fellowship step by step. We will forever be grateful for their lots of sacrifices.
They have two married sons who are also
actively involved in ministry, pastoring in the United States.
