Get to Know the Nolan Family

Hi, we're Dale and Anne Marie Nolan. We minister in Taiwan.


Ministry Description

From 2015-2018, we are studying Mandarin Chinese full-time in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Our goal is to be able to comfortably share the gospel in Chinese and live daily life without a language barrier. While language will be our main focus for the first few years, we are involved in local churches and leading local Bible studies. Through this, we are making connections, networking, and laying the foundation for future ministry. We will also be spending time with the WOL team in Taichung, preparing and planning for future ministry.

Our goal is to work alongside locals giving them Bible training and discipleship (in Chinese and/or English), with the goal to see them grow and in-turn begin ministering to their own people.

About Dale

I was raised in a family that loved and served God. I grew up believing that Jesus Christ paid for my sins on the cross. I am thankful for the protection God gave me as a child from what the world had to offer me.

I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute with the plan to attend for only one year, then pursue my own desires: a skateboarding career. During that year I grew a lot in my walk with the Lord. I decided I needed more knowledge of the Bible, so I took another year to spend at Word of Life. Through both of the years there, I began to have a desire to serve God in the ministry, more specifically in Asia. At the end of my second year at WOLBI, I was given the opportunity to go to Taiwan for two years. Through my time there, I saw people who's lives were consumed with idols and ancestor worship in desperate need of the gospel. My heart is burdened for them to know Christ. My passion for them isn't only to see them come to come to salvation, but to disciple them and see them reach their own country for the Lord.

About Anne Marie

I grew up in Arlington, Ohio, in a large family. My parents became Christians when I was five years old, and I saw a dramatic change in their lives. They began taking me to the local church where I learned about the ten commandments. Having always been a perfectionist and a people pleaser, I was frustrated that here were a set of rules that I could not keep no matter how hard I tried. My mother used this frustration to bring me to the cross, and I could rest in the fact that I did not have to work for my own salvation any longer.

I attended Pensacola Christian College where I received a Music Ministries degree in 2010. Through the experiences that I had in school, God led me to know I wanted to be in full time ministry. At the end of my time at PCC, my dad told me about a ministry called SYME in Taiwan and thought it would be a good fit for me. I decided to try it out and I loved it! I could see such a need in Taiwan being fulfilled though this discipleship program. I returned back in the summer of 2011 where I met Dale. I returned to the States that fall while Dale finished up the last year of his WOL internship. We were married on August 3, 2013.

It has always been our desire to return to Taiwan to evangelize and disciple the church, and we are so thankful that God has lead us back there now. We are excited to see what He will do in and through us.
