Daniel and Bethany Robbins have started a new team in Malawi, focused on leadership development through theological education and training lay trauma counselors. Daniel is currently teaching at a seminary started and run by a Presbyterian church in Malawi (CCAP). Bethany homeschools the children and works alongside a ministry which provides counseling and restoration to sexually exploited girls. Together, they're passionate about leadership development and empowering Malawians.

Vision: Partnering with Kingdom works in Malawi to see a movement of trauma counselors bringing justice and healing to girls, along with pastors and theologians leading churches to gospel transformation.

Mission: We leverage our privileges to empower front-line Malawian workers through trauma training, theological education, and community discipleship.

Daniel hails from Seattle, WA, and Bethany from Nashville, TN. It was during an RUF talk at the University of Washington that both Daniel and Bethany felt the first call to missions in Africa. Soon after, they married in 2005 and then spent two years in Malawi from 2007-2009, where they had their firstborn. In Malawi, they taught at an international elementary and secondary school. During these years, they saw firsthand the need for educational investment among Malawians.

Daniel graduated from Covenant Seminary with his M.Div in 2013, and is finishing his Ph.D. in theological epistemology at the University of Aberdeen. Bethany has a BA in Psychology and advanced training in trauma lay counseling under Dr. Dan B. Allender through the Allender Center in Seattle, WA. Together, Daniel and Bethany spent five years in pastoral ministry at Christ Church Bellingham in Washington state.

They love their creative and energetic children, Elijah ('08), Lazarus ('10) and Ruthie ('13), and a handful of foster children whom they miss dearly.
