Dr. Chuck & Sherry QuinleyDirectors


Emerge and Medialight are led by Dr. Chuck and Sherry Quinley, career missionaries with 25 years experience in church planting, leadership development and graduate-school administration.  Sherry Quinley has 30 years experience in administration and works her magic to make sure the Thailand experience for short term teams and Medialight students is amazing. Chuck Quinley has an earned doctorate from Asbury Seminary and also graduated from Media Village, South Africa. He oversees the academic and spiritual formation elements of Medialight training and is its lead teacher.


Many of our team members move in nations where missionary activity is restricted. For that reason we have omitted the last names for most of our team members.
