Co-Founders and President
Darin and Tonya served in full time missionary service in Haiti since early 2013 overseeing the various construction needs throughout the country; schools, homes, medical clinics and churches. The Kuceys also managed a large Guest House, welcoming mission teams from several countries including the USA, Canada and parts of the Caribbean. During their years of living in Haiti, the Kuceys increasingly noted some of the thousands of children and youth living and dying on the streets of Haiti. A growing burdened developed in their hearts to see these children rescued, redeemed and restored. Thus, a vision was birthed for, “Loving the Least of These Ministries Canada” and in 2018 the Kuceys officially changed their focus from building buildings to building lives.
Currently, the Kuceys have been entrusted by the Haitian government to care for 14 abandoned children ranging from 2 to 14 years of age. The Kuceys continue to work with the Haitian government to see more abused, abandoned and at-risk children removed from the streets of Haiti and placed in supportive and secure family environments. Please pray for the Kuceys as they commit themselves to this ministry of restoration of children’s lives and re-unification of families in Haiti.
Tonya is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene serving as pastor in Nova Scotia, Canada, for 8 years. In addition to her pastoral role she also served as the Canadian Representative on a Global Missions Board from 2007-2012. During this same time frame, she was able to act as both a Team Co-ordinator and Field Co-ordinator for short term mission trips to areas in Canada, Africa and Southeast Asia.
Darin has been involved in the IT industry for over 25 years in various capacities including, program development, consulting, teaching, project management, hardware and software development as well as business owner.
