Alumni PMT members


 The concept for the Partnership Ministry Teams program began in 1990. Since then well over 100 men and women have provided countless hours of prayer, financial assistance and encouragement to Luke Society directors as they grew their ministry. As ministries matures, the need for an active PMT diminishes and the ministry moves into new phase of development. The following individuals have selflessly given of their time, service and financial resources as PMTs in the past.
