In June, 2015, the i-61’s Founding Director, Tri Robinson, retired from vocational ministry and transitioned the i-61 leadership to Terra Montford as the i-61 Director.
Terra was part of the founding team of i-61. Prior to that, she was the Director of VCOM (Vineyard College of Mission) and the Director of SOBA (School of Biblical Action) at the Boise Vineyard. Terra has been in missions work for the past 15 years. She is excited about the future of i-61 and believes God will continue to use it as a vessel for hope amidst crisis.
Samuel and his wife Sara helped to start our training ministry located in Managua, Nicaragua. After two years of serving abroad, they decided to move back to the US. Samuel now coordinates recruiting for our Holistic Missions Training Experience. He also works the local missions in Boise. This includes teams going oversees, planning the monthly i-61 Connect meetings, and overseeing the Boise Vineyard food pantry.
i-61 has several full time missionaries living and serving in Managua, Nicaragua.
