Greater impacting the world
We expect to be part of God's plan to continue to restore a broken world.
We accomplish this through many avenues in our community and church. Currently we partner with the following:
- Sonbeam Daycare & Preschool to support families in our community
- The missionaries and organizations below:
Rick and Carol
PLANTING MULTIPLYING CHURCHES by PRAYERFULLY finding where God is at work in "People of Peace" (influence & who immediately bring others to Christ & church) in the greater Rio de Janeiro, Brazil area among the urban poor & working classes.
PASSION TO WORK WITH GOD IN RAISING UP MISSIONARIES THAT PLANT MULTIPLYING CHURCHES AMONG ALL THE PEOPLES, ESP. THE UNREACHED. Is your Job big enough? -"Being a light to the nations, so that My salvation becomes GLOBAL" (Isa 49:5, Message)!
I'm serving in Montevideo, Uruguay, the least-churched country in the Americas, with only 3% Christians. It is a country of great influence in Latin America, and in the upper middle class neighborhood called the "Rambla" (the neighborhoods along the boardwalk), only one tenth of one percent of about 380,000 people are believers. In this mostly secular and atheistic society, we have planted Rey de Paz (King of Peace), which has been an effective and growing church in this unreached people group. I specifically work with youth (12 to 30 year olds) in a society that does not allow young people to get involved in leadership until many years later. I also need to get back to the field. I'm currently on home-assignment and still have to raise 15% of my support before I can return.

Joel and Andi
Ever since we were married, we knew that we wanted to be missionaries. God has placed a desire in our hearts to work with people around the world who have never had the opportunity to hear the Word of God. After years of training, we have finally made it to Africa. We are here in West Africa working hard to learn French. We desire to work alongside the local church in Africa to help bring the gospel to the people groups who have never heard. We are struggling to adjust to life here and are thankful for the group of people who are working alongside us and upholding us in prayer. We don’t know what is ahead, but we know that we are where God has called us to be. Each day we put one step forward and trust God to lead us in the right direction.
