Twenty years of missionary experience among the people of El Salvador and a transforming vision for the training and sending of missionaries from the two-thirds world fire the passion of Dr. Rance’s teaching. Having been raised in Guatemala as a child of missionaries, he experienced a call to raise up Latin Americans for missions before his teenage years began. He arrived in El Salvador as a missionary (and AGTS alumnus) at age 23 and immediately set out to fulfill that calling by becoming the founding dean and professor of missiology for the School of Theology and Missions at the Universidad Cristiana de las Asambleas de Dios. He led in the formation of the AG Department of Missions in the Salvadoran national church and served as its president for its first eight years, preaching missions across the nation of El Salvador and throughout Latin America. He is the founder of CAMAD, a missionary training center in El Salvador, and is the secretary of Misiones en Conjunto, a network of AG missions agencies in Latin American and the Caribbean. Together with other leaders, he has helped to build what has become a strong missionary movement in the national churches of the region. In addition to his missionary statesmanship, Dr. Rance served as a member of the Executive committee and General Presbytery of the AG in El Salvador for 20 years, and taught at Bethel Bible Institute. His international teaching includes work with Latin American Advanced School of Theology, Latin American Theological Seminary and Bethany College (now Bethany University).

"Because the most important competency for ministry is hearing and obeying the voice of the Spirit, I seek to facilitate the Spirit’s call and empowerment in every class I teach.” — DeLonn Rance
