Marthe Curry

Marthe Curry is the Director of World missions for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas with over two decades of experience traveling the globe, developing mission partners, facilitating teams, and encouraging spiritual transformation through missions ministries.  She loves nothing more than the challenge of bringing diverse groups together and watching them meld into one heart and spirit.  When Marthe is not searching for creative means to engage more people in missions, she's chasing her puppies, Edward and Frances, staving off the drought from her suburban garden, or researching socially-acceptable reasons to avoid cooking.  Marthe is honored to share our mutual passion for the sacred circle of God's creation.

The Rev. Dr. Bradley S. Hauff is the Indigenous Missioner for the Episcopal Church, a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff.  He is originally from South Dakota; born in Sioux Falls and raised in Rapid City, and he is enrolled with the Oglala Sioux Tribe (Lakota) of Pine Ridge, as were both of his parents.  He has been an active Episcopal priest for over 30 years and has served congregations in the dioceses of South Dakota, Minnesota, Florida and Pennsylvania.  He has written articles and made numerous presentations around the country on Native American issues.
