Get Involved

It's "We" not "Me"

"Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God's Law and Prophets and this is what you get.

Alexander Ministries International Inc was founded by Darrell and Donnia Alexander, officially, in January of 2010 when the ministry became recognized as a nonprofit in the United States of America. But unofficially Alexander Ministries International has been in operation since 1984 when Darrell started ministering the gospel.

Pastor Darrell and Donnia Alexander are currently full-time field missionaries living in the capital city of Lima, Perú and have the privilege of traveling throughout South America and working with many pastors and local churches.

As exciting and rewarding as that is, they could not do it without a lot of help. From the very beginning as they prepared to move to the mission field God provided faithful people to help. These 'helpers' are like Timothy was to Paul - faithful and ready to help - as a matter of fact, they call them theTimothy Team”.

The Timothy Team volunteers their time helping state side, doing the office work, sending out year-end partner letters,  mailing out birthday and anniversary cards and sending out ministry correspondence.

In truth Darrell & Donnia could not begin to do everything that needs to be done without this kind of help. Darrell says emphatically, “I believe we have the best team any missionary could ask for! They have made things so much easier for us and because of them we have seen much success. 

Please take a moment and meet these four wonderful friends and partners - Rod &  Cheryl Kroll &  James & Jacinthe Hopson - and we want to take this opportunity to introduce to you another couple that have become dear to this ministry- Jeff & Melissa Mace and last but in no way least Pastor Charles and Ximena Dean

Not only do all of these couples help with the natural things while Darrell & Donnia are on the mission field but they also help by encouraging them and praying for them and just being there when a friend is needed.

Rod and Cheryl

Rod & Cheryl Kroll

Rod and Cheryl are our  best friends. From the moment I met Rod I liked him and knew we would be doing something together one day but I did not know he would be such an important and vital part of this ministry.

I can absolutely say that if it were not for Rod and Cheryl, we would not have been able to stay on the mission field as long as we have.

He has been such a wonderful blessing to me and Donnia and this ministry. From day one he was there being a true Timothy, as a matter of fact Rod said of himself after reading Tony Cooke's book “In search of Timothy” "after 53 years I have finally found out who I am, I'm a Timothy".

And Cheryl, They have been there with us from the very start and always believed in us.

Cheryl is a huge blessing to me and Donnia and this ministry, a true “Timothy” from working in the office to cleaning out the sewer in Peru (Rod was in on that job as well) so a whole mission team could take showers and use the bathroom, she will see to the task at hand and get it done.


Pst Charles & Ximena Dean

Charles & Ximena Dean

Pastor Charles is a 1977 & 1994 graduate of Rhema Bible College and is one of the board directors with AMI. Currently he serves on the mission field in Arequipa, Peru, with his wife Ximena, Charles has been there for more than 17 years where he has been serving since September of 2000.

His ministry began in one of the largest churches in Arequipa, working with leaders and volunteers, training and equipping them to serve better in the local church as helps ministers.

 After a long and fruitful time in the service of that church the Lord directed Charles and his wife to launch out as an independent missionary/minister and for many years now, Ximena and he have been independent field missionaries in the work they are doing.

This move has enabled them to be a blessing to more pastors and churches. This directed move resulted in initiating monthly pastors’ breakfasts in Arequipa, Puno and now Cusco Peru, together they have been conducting these meetings as well as seminars, conferences and special services.

Their heart is to be a blessing to pastors as well as helping them develop their churches, with said seminars, conferences and special meetings. All of these will help to develop and equip their people to do the work of the ministry more effectively and effectively support their pastor and his vision!

James Hopson

James Hopson

James is just one of those people that when you meet them you know you have met a genuine person who loves God with all his heart. He volunteers in his church in the lighting and sound department and he helps AMI with our mail outs to pastors and partners.

James and I graduated from the same Bible school and I have had the pleasure of knowing him for the past 8 years. He is an awesome father and husband and a true friend.

Oh and did I mention he is a great cook and can smoke some of the best meat you have ever tasted and top it off with his own signature sauces…..

Jacinthe Hopson

Jacinthe Hopson

 If you have received a Birthday or Anniversary card from AMI it’s because of this organized and diligent lady. We asked her to consider helping us out by mailing out a few cards for us because it is much too expensive and difficult for us to send mail to the states from Peru.

She said she would love to help, at that time we only had a few each month, but now we have several more and it’s growing all the time. Jacinthe is a great blessing to this ministry. What she does allows Donnia and I to do something we believe is very important - keep in touch with those who partner with us. 

Pastor Jeff Mace

Jeff Mace

Pastor Jeff is as easy and laid back as a gentle country breese in the Tennessee valley, which just so happens is where he hails from, that is until you get him to talking about his Jesus.

At that point he turns into pure energy that ignites everyone around him. His excitement, joy and genuine love and exuberance shine forth in a truly spectacular way.

Not only does his natural excitement help him be an effective minister but he has learned how to cooperate with the Spirit of God.

Jeff is no novice when it comes to filling his place behind the pulpit or on the mission field, having traveled to multiple countries and a few continents of the world bringing the message of God’s unconditional love and grace.


Melissa Mace

Melissa Mace

If you combine someone with a gentle voice, a comforting smile, a whole mess of  sweet southern charm and the love of God, who would you have? Well, you would have Pastor Melissa Mace. But don’t let that fool you, this woman of God is as smart and anointed as they come.

She is the wife of Jeff and an exciting minister in her own right. She too has ministered in several countries and different continents of the world bringing the word of God’s goodness to many who were hurting and without hope.

Whether she is filling the podium as a bible school instructor or in the office as an administrator or at the hospital, Melissa is doing it all with the excellence and grace, demonstrating the love of God in action.
