Bill and Teresa Pfaunmiller first met in the eighth grade and attended school together from that point until graduating from college. However, they did not begin dating until their senior year of high school when they learned that each loved the Lord and was committed to serving the Lord in the manner of His choosing.
On August 23, 1985, they were married and one week later returned to Bob Jones University to finish their degrees. Then they moved to Mt Pleasant, PA, to teach in a Christian school. In March of 1990, the Lord called them to Puerto Rico during the missions conference at their home church, Mt Carmel Community Church. Since January 1995, Bill and Teresa have served the Lord in PR. The Lord has blessed this family with five children - Steven, Nathan, Bethany, Matthew, and Jonathan.
After serving for several years with fellow GFA missionaries, Dean and Brenda Hendrix, the Pfaunmillers were asked to lead Iglesia Bautista Misionera and Ponce Christian Academy.
Since assuming these roles in 2003, they have endeavored to prepare these ministries for complete independence under Puerto Rican leadership, allowing Bill and Teresa to move on to plant a church on the south side of the island.
