Cheryl Keiper

Cheryl served overseas from 1991–2010 with WEC International while living in France, Côte d’Ivoire (W. Africa), and El Salvador. Ministries included: evangelism, Bible studies/teaching, administrative duties, various church activities, and more.

Living in various cultures and learning 2 other languages (French and Spanish) were excellent preparation for the transition to joining the ministry of Immerse International, an outreach in Pennsylvania to immigrants, refugees, and international students. Immerse provides housing for international students (and some Americans) AND academic English classes to help prepare non-English speakers the opportunity to move forward with higher education goals.
