American missionaries Paul and Donna Tocco, founders of Word Ablaze Ministries, have been Christian evangelical missionaries in Kenya for over 16 years. Donna and Paul are originally from Pennsylvania, USA. Paul graduated with a BS in Business from Richard Stockton State University, NJ, as well as a BA in Theology from Beacon University, GA. Donna also has a BA in Theology from Beacon University.
Donna and Paul Tocco's purpose is to help the people of East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rawanda and Ethiopia) receive Jesus Christ. They want to see the lives of others changed by His love and power - just as their lives have been changed. At The Word Ablaze Bible Institute, Donna and Paul prepare disciples ... who go on to prepare more disciples. This is how the Good News is spread!
The Tocco's outreaches include teaching and training pastors and leaders; a refugee ministry (Kenyaid); community development; and outreaches to the poor of Kenya and Tanzania. Through their diverse mission outreaches, the Toccos have traveled extensively teaching, preaching and showing the love of God to the African people.
Paul and Donna have three children: Ashley(age 25), Jason (age 22) and Josiah (age 9). They are also the proud grandparents of Tiana (age 5). Ashley and Jason reside in the US. Kenyan-born Josiah lives in Nakuru with Donna and Paul.
