Rev. Dana Ostby is our featured speaker at this year’s missions conference. Dana was a church planter and seminary student at the Evangelical Theological Seminary of Indonesia (ETSI) from 1984-1987. Dana returned to California in 1987, to marry Sue, a missionary to Thailand and a fellow Biola missions major. After completing masters degrees from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Dana and Sue returned to Indonesia with OC International. Dana taught New Testament and missions on the islands of Java, Sumatra and Bali. Dana helped found the Indonesian National Research Network and JP23 missions network, now known as the Indonesian Peoples Network. Sue has been fighting a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease since 2004, when the Ostbys returned to the US. Today, Dana is a special assistant to the president of OC International and serves as part-time missions pastor at Grace Bible Church in Arroyo Grande.
