John and Alisha Walz serve as church planters in Taiwan since 2014 with Vision Baptist Missions. Originally in China, the Walz’s were arrested and deported by Chinese authorities for being identified with the underground church, but they have since rebounded in Taiwan continuing the church planting work. The Walz’s currently reside Kaohsiung, Taiwan, a city with over 2 million people. Lord willing, the Walz’s plan to remain there until there is an established web of church plants cooperating to train men and women for the ministry.
John was saved at the age of 8 in his family’s Cincinnati home, while Alisha was saved at the age of 7 in Grace Navajo Baptist Church. They met at Baptist Bible College 2006 and were married a year later(11/17/2007). As of 2018, they have two children, Ian (6/27/2014) and Eli (11/16/2016).
