Beckie Hinze
Executive Director

Beckie Hinze has been employed with the FMS organization since 1994. Her nursing degree is from the University of Texas and her MBA is from Texas Woman’s University. She is studying in the School of Missions at Fuller Seminary and plans to complete her Master of Arts in Global Leadership in 2018.Beckie credits her love for missions and serving “across the street and around the globe” to her mom Betty Best, who taught her about the love of God for all people everywhere. She looks back fondly at how God put the puzzle pieces of her life together preparing her to lead the 26:12 team. Her love of missions began as a teenager on mission trips to south Texas where she was impacted by the poverty that she saw around her. Working with women in Tanzania in 2004 began her passion for exposing those she loves to the joy of serving others in cross cultural settings. Nothing brings her more joy that to see her co-workers in the FMS family catch the vision for serving others. Beckie and her husband Rick live in Fort Worth, Texas and have three grown, married, children, and six grandkids.

Juliana Sletten
Stateside Missions Coordinator

“I came to 26:12 from a company that encourages and supports its employees to give back to their local communities as well as serving people around the world. Having had the freedom and support from my CEO to leave my desk to serve was a game changing gift to me! It not only changed lives of people we helped around the world, but it changed me. Investing in people is the most lasting investment any of us can make. Bottom line, I hope to always work for an organization with those values.” Juliana lives in Denton, Texas with her husband, Kyel and son Brooks.
