Michael and Morgan LeBlanc, along with their children, Nash and Rosie, work and live amongst the Kuyu people in the mountains of Papua New Guinea. Their dream is to plant a mature, self-sustaining church and disciple indigenous believers, a task that could span the next 20-30 years.
After leaving their careers in 2017, Michael and Morgan moved to Missouri and completed two years of missionary training with Ethnos360. Then, in 2020, the LeBlancs moved to Papua New Guinea and learned the trade language (Tok Pisin) and national culture. Michael, along with one of his coworkers, made initial contact with the Kuyu people in October 2020. After years of preparation and team formation, they built houses and moved into Kuyu as a team of three families in December 2022. They are currently in the final stages of language learning with their coworkers before they will translate the Bible and teach the Kuyu people God’s grand story from beginning to end.
Michael received a B.S. in Business Administration from Biola University and a M.A. in Biblical Exposition from Liberty University. Morgan received a B.A. in Intercultural Studies from California Baptist University. Both have a desire to play a small role in what God is doing amongst His Church.
