Born and raised in a small town in central Georgia, with a graduating senior class of 45 students in 2002, Rhoda Woeckener had no idea the amount of places and adventures that God would lead her through in the next 16 years.

She served in the military for over five years, lived in California, traveled around the world to more than 20 countries, got “saved in the desert” on her deployment to Iraq, and was eventually stationed at and settled in Florida. She would go on to separate from active duty and work in ministry full-time at her local church, where she was passionate about serving and connecting people to Christ through the various ministries the church had to offer.

She was asked to lead a music team to Budapest in 2016 for their annual Summer English Camp. She subsequently led a second team in 2017, which included her husband, Josh, who was going on his first missions trip ever. It was at this camp where they both received the call to come back and serve as missionaries for “longer than just a few days.” One year later, they packed their bags and moved to Hungary, where they currently work in the areas of English Ministries, Discipleship, and helping develop church partnerships.
