Deanne Gochanour

After a few short-term mission trips both in the US and abroad, Deanne learned God was calling her to pursue long term missions. Deanne attended Concordia University in Irvine, California while majoring in Lutheran Elementary Education in hopes to serve God through teaching children.

Not only does Deanne have a passion for childcare and teaching, but she also loves traveling and exploring new places. While at CUI, Deanne had an incredible opportunity to accompany a professor to his former mission home in Togo, West Africa, where God showed her combining children and ministry is the perfect place to be!

God has currently led Deanne to continue her passion in teaching ministry while nannying for Andrew and Alexis Olson in Tanzania. She’ll live alongside the Olson’s translation ministry while assisting in teaching and childcare for their 3 girls.
