Bryan & Jan Thompson

The Thompsons have been serving with OMF International since 1992, when they left for Japan as long-term missionaries. During the next 23 years they were active in evangelism, discipleship, church planting, short-term ministries, member care of missionaries, women’s ministry, organizational leadership & administrative roles.

In the summer of 2015 God called them to OMF's U.S. Headquarters in Denver to join a team of advocates for every people group of East Asia. This team helps to encourage, enable and equip the body of Christ to serve God’s purposes among East Asia’s peoples.

Bryan serves by leading the OMF-U.S. Volunteer Ministry, which provides opportunities for Great Commission-minded believers to make a significant contribution right where they are towards reaching East Asians with the gospel. Jan serves by following up those who have served overseas with OMF, and by leading a team of people who pray regularly for OMF missionaries sent out from the U.S.

They have three adult children, Lauren, Stephen (married to Elsa) and Ian.

The Thompsons recognize that their ministry is most effective in partnership with other believers, so they highly value your prayers. They send out regular updates on life and ministry to their prayer partners. You can view their previous updates and/or sign up to receive them at this link:
