Rick Groover – Director/President
Tracy Groover - Treasurer

With more than 25 years of experience in missions and evangelism, the Lord has equipped Rick to direct Global Impact Ministries.  His vision goes beyond helping people for a brief period of time.  For this reason, preaching the Word, training missionaries, and discipling believers are essential avenues to an eternal road.
Tracy has over two decades of experience in managing finances for mission organizations, working with foreign governments, and preparing documentation for mission shipments.  Her skill set has proven to be valuable to the Global Impact organization.
Rick and Tracy have been happily married since 1985.  They have two grown children and five grandchildren.

Kokou (and Yvette) Loko – West Africa Director

Kokou and Yvette Loko have served the Lord as missionaries in their home country of Togo since the late 1990’s.  God has used the Loko family to plant several churches and start a Christian radio station: Grace Radio. 

They have had a vision for over 10 years of a medical facility for the Togolese people. That vision is coming to fruition as the first phase of a medical complex was built in 2022, and plans for expansion is already taking place.

Kokou and Yvette have been happily married since 1993.  They have three grown children.

Stanley (and Janet) Onyutha – East Africa Director

Global Impact has had the pleasure of working with Pastor Stanley for more than 2 decades.  He and his wife have done a tremendous job in the country of Uganda.  

They have planted several churches, as well as two Christian schools: Nebbi Primary and Nebbi Secondary, collectively serving over 400 students.  Pastor Stanley has also done a great job of training pastors and sending them out to start more churches.  We count it a joy to partner with this great couple reaching the world for Christ in East Africa.

Stanley and Janet have been married since 1988.  They have two grown children.
