Dona Stankich

Facilitator Assistant


Dona was born in the South but her family moved frequently and she has always loved going new places and meeting new people. Dona and her husband Brian both have hearts for missions and giving those who haven’t heard the good news of the gospel the chance to hear. After meeting some Pioneers at seminary and being introduced to Pioneers founder Ted Fletcher over dinner, they joined Pioneers and served as field workers among the Roma (gypsy) people of Macedonia. There they saw a church planted that continues to reach out among the Roma in that country and beyond.


After returning to the US, Brian and Dona provided member care to workers serving in Central Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East. Brian now directs Pioneers’ Donor Services team. 


Dona considers it  a great delight to assist our Church Partnership Facilitators by calling churches to thank them for all that they do supporting, praying for and serving their Pioneers missionaries as well as offering resources and information, and praying for them.


Brian and Dona have three grown (and amazing) sons and a precious daughter-in-love.
