PIU Alumni: The Drake’s
Adam and I are two missionary kids who met at Piedmont while preparing for ministry. God drew us together there and gave us a passion for the unreached people groups of the world. The Missions program at Piedmont required us to do a 6 week internship, which we chose to do in Togo, West Africa. This trip solidified our calling to work together on the mission field. We graduated in 2005, got married a month later and we are currently serving as full time missionaries in Togo. Adam and I are so grateful for the Biblical foundation we gained at Piedmont which allows us to be confident in our beliefs and equipped us to teach sound doctrine while making and discipling new believers. Adam and Faith Drake have four children, Oceane (12), Celeste (10), August (7), and Nicodemus (5).
