Dave and Donna Tolan first served with Global Partners as missionaries in Zambia from 1986 to 1996. In Zambia, Dave was the director and a professor at the Wesleyan Bible College while Donna worked with women’s ministries and homeschooled their four sons: Aaron (’82), Mark (’84), Stephen (’88), and Joshua (’93). After mentoring and installing a Zambian director of the Bible college, Dave and Donna accepted reassignment with Global Partners in 1997 as Mission Mobilizers at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, South Carolina.
Dave and Donna’s purpose is to Motivate, Mentor, and Mobilize a new generation of missionaries. Thus they call their ministry “The 3M Project.”
