The Dougherty family of Hoover will soon become missionaries in Cusco, Peru.
Derek and Laura Dougherty will soon travel to Cusco, Peru as missionaries with Mission To the World (MTW). The two have served on staff at Cross Creek Church for the past five years and recently stepped down from their positions in order to devote time to raising funds in order to serve needs in Peru.
Derek and Laura hope to move to Peru this fall to work alongside other American missionaries to plant churches and teach missionary children traveling with MTW.
A Music for Missions concert will be held on Aug. 6 to fundraise for the couple’s trip. Music will start at 7 p.m. at the Avon Theater in downtown Birmingham. For more information on the Dougherty’s mission to Peru and the benefit concert, visit afewkeymoments.blogspot.com.
