Don was born in Havana, Cuba, in January 1947 to missionary parents, Rev. Hugh P. & Gertrude Jeter. Don has an identical twin brother, Doug, who has been a missionary to France for over twenty-five years and is now serving as a professor with Global University based in Springfield, Missouri. He has his earned PhD. from the University of Paris, Sorbonne, France. Don has two older brothers, Stan and Robert Jeter, and one sister, Betty. Stan is the director of the weekly TV news program, “Christian World News”, affiliated with CBN in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Robert is a flight instructor with American Airlines. Betty is married to Robby Jernigan and they are national Home Missionaries as Emergency Services chaplains based in Marshfield, MO. Don graduated from Southwestern A/G University with an A.A. in Communications and a B.A. in Bible and Missions in 1968. He graduated from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, with an M.A. in cross-cultural communications in 1979. Don was first credentialed as a minister with the Latin American District of the Assemblies of God and started pastoring a Spanish church in 1966. He was ordained with the North Texas District Council of the A/G in 1970. Upon graduating from college, Don went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he ministered among the Spanish-speaking in evangelism and drug rehabilitation work Teen Challenge with the ministry to drug addicts and gang members founded by Rev. David Wilkerson, where Cyndie was volunteering her time as a student nurse and counselor. That is where Don & Cyndie met. Don later moved to Miami, Florida, where he and Cyndie ministered after getting married in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1969. Don & Cyndie were first appointed as foreign missionaries with the Assemblies of God in the class of 1972. Their first assignment was establishing the Bible Institute in Lisbon, Portugal, and later ministered in Spain for 15 years. Don chaired the Missions Department at Trinity Bible College and then served for 14 years with the Latin American Theological Seminary and 12 of those years ministering in Cuba teaching theology and sound Biblical doctrine. He has ministered in Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Cayman Islands, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Venezuela, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and in various countries of Europe. Don states: “It is has been a delight to be able minister in Spain teaching and training leaders and ministering to the church in preparation for Pentecostal revival.” Besides serving as a professor at the Centro Superior de Teología Superior Asambleas de Dios (A/G Bible College Spain) Don & Cyndie ministered in leadership at a church plant El Hogar Cristiano in the city of Alcalá de Henares, Madrid. Don also served as coordinator of SETS, the European Seminary of Advanced Theology, based in Madrid. Unexpectedly, the Lord opened a new and marvelous direction for Don & Cyndie’s missionary ministry. It basically allows them to minister to four continents, to Cuba & Latin America and the rest of the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world. Through a breath-taking and totally unexpected series of events, while still with AGWM, they have transferred from Spain and Europe to International Ministries and Global University. The government of Cuba encouraged Global University to enter in order to teach & train pastors (not only Pentecostals), partly because of the fact Global offers fully accredited degrees. More than 2,300 ministers have now enrolled in Cuba in Global’s B.A. program in Bible & Theology. However, Global needed faculty with the necessary degrees, experience & qualifications in the Spanish language. The missions department felt that Don & Cyndie fit the bill perfectly. After much sincere prayer they were convinced that it was in the providence of God. In the Jeter’s own words: “The Lord surprised us by enlarging our ministry with this unexpected and timely opportunity. We are re-connecting with Cuba & Latin America while staying involved in Spain/Europe and adding the African countries of Angola & Mozambique (Portuguese) through distance education and seminars throughout the Spanish and Portuguese speaking worlds as an AGWM missionary working with Global University.” The Jeters comment: “We truly marvel how the Lord of the Harvest has been preparing us for more than 40 years for this moment and this new direction in our missionary ministry. We gained invaluable experience in more than 20 years in higher education, mostly in Spanish but also in Portuguese. We now find ourselves in a most privileged position to be able to minister as a missionary/professor with Global University.” Cyndie is “Spanish Testing Coordinator” at the International Offices of Global University. Don enjoys stamp collecting, swimming, tennis and racquetball. He enjoys playing with his grandchildren. He is a fan of the Real Madrid soccer team and the Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys.
