We view missions as an extension of the local church.
Therefore, whenever possible, our desire for missions is to see churches planted from which other forms of outreach (such as orphan care, medical clinics, schools, etc.) would then flow out of. We do realize, however, that this is not always possible in every situation. In such cases the overall mission remains the same -to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ and make disciples. This must be the main focal point of any mission or missionary that we support.
FEATURED MISSIONARY OF THE MONTH
The Markey Family | Yamal Russia
We are serving in Northern Russia in a region known as Yamal which translates as “end of the earth”. Our overall goal is to see the gospel go out and change the lives of the indigenous people in this part of the world. We seek to achieve this goal by planting small churches throughout the region as people come to know Christ. Our desire is that these churches be equipped to continue to study through God’s word and its power change their lives as the fellowship, pray, and draw closer to their Savior.
