Narci Herr

Narci Herr and her husband, Glenn, lived for just over 30 years in Hong Kong. They were first involved in working with the church in Hong Kong and then for the last 20 years of their time in Asia they served workers living in China. During that time Glenn traveled extensively throughout China and Narci taught Hebrew and theological English at a Hong Kong seminary.

The Herrs moved to Saint Louis in 2013 and have continued to serve the China-ministry community through their work with ChinaSource.
