Executive Director + Human Resources Director
The Honduran Fellowship of Missionaries and Ministries is a ministry that has long been in the heart of John and Adriana Mattica. Since their arrival in 2002, they quickly noticed they were not the only missionaries in Honduras. They also found many of these missionaries were tired, burning out, and most of all, feeling alone. In 2009, the Mattica’s started this new ministry with the purpose of promoting unity among missionaries through the creation of a network of communication and a commitment to helping each other as co-laborers of the Kingdom.
John is responsible for the leadership and overseeing the programs and strategic plan of the organization. He also manages the day-to-day operations including committees and staff. Contact him for Honduran Fellowship policies, all residency questions, and applications for donation processing.

In 2021 HFMM is adding a new are of ministry to care for our MK's. Laura Baxter has stepped into this role, specifically to connect with teens and college students.
Laura has been living in Honduras since 2015, working alongside a number of ministries, including MK Camp. Her love of youth ministry started during a college internship in 2000, and in mid-2020, in the midst of the pandemic and lockdowns, ministry began to focus more on missionary care and mentoring teenagers. Laura is excited to take on the role of MK Care and see where the Lord guides this ministry.
The Executive Council
Our Executive Council consists of John & Adriana Mattica, Ileana Molina, Don Lynn, Ed Schubert, Mac Youngblood, and Mark Hoff. Elections will take place during the General Assembly held in 2022.
Director of Member Care
Marcy Fenn is the Director of Member Care. She got involved in member care is because she saw a disconnect between what missionaries needed and what was available to them. From her own experiences as a missionary, involving physical moves and changes in ministry, she wished there was help with conflict resolution, processing dashed expectations, understanding transition, and even the practical items such as how to cook with limited or substitute ingredients and where to find a dentist. It then became her mission, in helping others answer the call of God in their lives, to figure out not only what missionaries needed to know, but to create a support system of resources, training, and help so they can walk out their calling with joy.
