As missionaries to Mexico, the Burkholders served with another agency before joining BMM in 2004. Their ministry centered on church planting and theological education. The Burkholders solidly believe that theological leadership is the future of the church in Latin America. They brought this philosophy to their current service at Editorial Bautista Independiente (EBI), BMM's Spanish publications ministry, where Bruce serves as director. Through EBI, the Burkholders strive to publish biblically solid theology textbooks and other Christian literature for Latin American churches and believers.
