Rev.  Jordan Bence – The Vine, Joplin, Mo.

Rev. Jordan Bence has had the privilege to serve as a home missionary in Joplin, Missouri, for four years. This was his first call out of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to shepherd a new mission start-up. By the grace of God, The Vine has been worshipping together in their first rental facility for over two and a half years.

Missionary Bence has been married to his wife, Laura (nee Steinbrenner), for eight years. The two were married the week after Jordan graduated from Martin Luther College. Laura has served as an emergency room nurse for seven years, having worked in several states including Wisconsin, Arizona, Arkansas, and now Missouri. The two were graciously gifted a beautiful blessing from God in their first child Millie Sue who arrived a year ago.
