Oliver L. Asher


Oliver and his lovely wife Andrea graduated from the University of Virginia, married, and moved to the Dominican Republic to be missionaries — all in the space of three months in 1988! Their life together with Jesus and the five children they have been blessed with has continued to be an adventure. In 1995, Oliver completed his master’s in civil engineering at UVA. In 1996 the Lord called Oliver to ANM after he had worked for five years as an environmental engineer. As our President, Oliver has a passion to build teams, encourage, and love our staff members as we equip, encourage, and advocate for native missionaries to reach the remaining unreached people groups of the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the glory of God. Oliver recently published his first book, Invincible Joy: Chasing God’s Dreams for Your Life, which has proven to be an inspirational resource for Christians in times of hardship and uncertainty.

Bo Barredo

Co-Founder, Global Ambassador

Bo’s heritage is one of those who passionately love the Lord. He was influenced by the story of Joseph and his brothers as a young boy. At age thirteen, he was saved in an evangelistic meeting. His mother’s death from cancer was the catalyst for his father to become a full-time missionary. Bo’s family was inspired to become a part of missions when they observed their father’s love and devotion to the Lord. Bo and Marlou, his wife, left their professions as lawyers to respond to a strong missionary call. Bo’s background as a lawyer, administrator, and strategist offered skills he used to found and lead Advancing Native Missions. The vision of the ministry is from Matthew 24:14 — “And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world as a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” As Global Ambassador, Bo continues to further this vision. His book My Love Story with the God of Missions relates his own journey and the story of Advancing Native Missions.

Amber Parker

Vice President of Marketing & Staff Development

On a high school mission trip to Trinidad, God began expanding Amber’s vision and giving her a heart for the world. Since then, Amber has had many opportunities to travel and witness how God is working among the nations. In 2018 Amber joined the ANM executive team as Vice President of Staff Development. Today, one of her greatest passions is bringing encouragement to men and women faithfully serving God and reaching their own people in countries around the world. Her book Finding Simplicity: Learning to Live Like Jesus in the Midst of a Complicated World has helped many readers apply biblical wisdom to their busy lives
