Dr. Alban and his wife Joanne began their ministry in 1965 when they served as missionaries in Brazil. The Lord redirected their steps in 1975 and Dr. Alban took a pastorate in Tennessee.  Still having a passion for missions, he accepted a position with Berean Mission in 1979.  Since then, the Lord has used him to train and prepare new missionaries for the field. Dr. Alban served 16 years as Missions Department Chairman at Appalachian Bible College and in 2003, he became Professor of Global Studies at Liberty University.

Dr. Alban Touched On

Successes and struggles in ministry A key takeaway was that God did not call him to be someone else but to be the man He gifted him to be. The importance of the local church pastor in world missions Missions depend upon the pastor's leadership.
