Sally Dechert serves in west-central Wyoming, a rural area comprised of mostly small towns and farming/ranching communities.
There is a great need for opportunities to study the Bible in-depth, as well as needs for discipleship, fellowship and church planting in surrounding rural areas.
After seeing the need in her community for in-depth Bible studies, Sally began reaching out to women in her rural community through weekly Bible studies and seminars. She aims to provide opportunities for women to not just study the Bible, but also apply it and fellowship with other Christian women.
“I grew up in a situation where churches were few and far between, and where it was not possible to find a Bible study or a youth group where the biblical text was studied in-depth,” Sally explains. “Lots of people in the U.S. have access to Scripture, but few people actually know it or study it.”
Sally has served as InFaith field staff since 2012.
Sally grew up in a farming community in west-central Wyoming. After graduating from college, she joined Wycliffe Bible Translators and moved to Tanzania, East Africa, where she worked as a translation advisor for a variety of language teams. However, she had a desire to teach the Bible and help people study it for themselves, and because of her own background, she also had a particular interest in serving people in rural communities. After twelve years with Wycliffe, Sally joined InFaith and moved back to Wyoming to do Bible study outreach.
