Billy & Kate Greenman

Billy & Kate Greenman


Born and raised in Southeastern Michigan, we now call Lima, Peru, home. Our first experience with Peru was during 2001. At 15, we had just finished our freshman year of high school and both signed up for the same 3-week trip.

Neither can say we remember much about each other during those 18 days but we do know that upon returning home, a seed was planted in each of our hearts. After 10 years of short-term volunteering, we both felt a calling to transition into full-time ministry. Billy moved in March 2009, and Kate arrived in June 2011.

Over the years we have held various roles from volunteer coordinators to directors of a ministry to abandoned children, where we worked closely with the staff at 6 children’s homes and the Peruvian government. Now, we are working with at-risk youth through Paths of Hope and Billy offers counseling to families as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

We were married in January 2013 and welcomed our first child, Will, in February 2017.

Prayer Requests:

  • For health, safety and continued endurance as we travel.
  • That God would continue to work through each young adult we partner with.
  • That God would continue to strengthen our marriage and help us to model a personal relationship with Christ for our son.
