Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Global Missions 

The Lord has called us to train pastors in rural villages in the Majority World with a specific emphasis on India. 80% of the pastors in non-western countries (Majority World) have little to no formal training. Equipping these indigenous pastors makes them more effective in reaching their communities for Jesus and shepherding their believers. The Lord has also given us the opportunity to minister to pastors and their wives who have undergone severe persecution in India. Some of these pastors have been beaten for the cause of Jesus, some have had their homes or churches destroyed, and some have given their very lives for the Kingdom of Heaven. Because of the sensitive nature of our work and some of the areas we go we are not using our names. We would appreciate you adding us to your prayer list.

Brian Gandy

Denice and I have been married for over 35 years and we have one daughter and four grandchildren. I have been in full-time ministry for almost 10 years. I train village pastors who do not have access to a Bible college or seminary in the Majority World. I go to these countries and teach pastors and church leaders how to do their jobs biblically. This generally involves a 3-4 day conference three to four times per year. I also minister to persecuted pastors in an undisclosed country. These are pastors who have been beaten, their homes/churches have been destroyed, or they have been imprisoned for their faith.


Compassion International

We are a child-advocacy ministry pairing compassionate people with children living in extreme poverty to release the children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty.

Poimen Ministry 

Our vision is to strengthen pastors so churches will be strengthened. The approach of Poimen Ministries is to connect experienced pastors with senior/lead pastors who need assistance in various areas of their ministries. Our ministry is highly relational. We rely  on the Lord as we personally connect with pastors.

Prison Ministry

Our goal is to equip volunteers and churches with practical prison ministry training resources that prepare individuals to take action as prison volunteers.

Joshua Initiative Founder

We equip families with God's Word and encourage them to impact their communities with the gospel!

Solitude Place

Currently, we provide free counseling and encouragement to our local community at the office and through the Internet or by phone to those outside our area. We also rent an apartment in North Carolina where God’s servants can come for a sabbatical, some physical rest, and encouragement at no cost to themselves. Laurie and I have been counseling and encouraging folks for over 35 years in ministry together. In addition, we utilize homes and/or guest quarters that our ministry partners own in different states to accommodate leaders.

Our ultimate vision for Solitude Place is to be a retreat center where pastors, chaplains, missionaries, ministry leaders, and Christian business owners can come for respite and encouragement, at no cost.

We all know a hiker stops along the way to rest so he can continue along his journey feeling refreshed to complete his trek. These homes provide a place to stop for the weary. However; many ministry leaders fail to stop and spend time with their family and Lord.

In fact, research shows that some of the biggest reasons that pastors burnout in ministry is due to the lack of vacation/sabbatical rest, little or no physical exercise, no effective way to deal with critics, lack of daily time in the Scriptures, poor relational/leadership skills, the neglect of family, loneliness while leading, and the inability to say no to requests.

We provide a place where folks can come to REST, be REFRESHED and RECONNECT in all of those relationships! You can help by praying, becoming a monthly financial partner, and sharing about Solitude place with your friends. With God’s help there are no limits!

You Matter Ministries

Our purpose and mission is to minister to those who are homeless and hurting by preaching The Good News of Jesus Christ, offering prayer, providing meals, hygiene packs, and when possible, a clean change of clothing.  

Kyle and Krista Fox

The Fox Family (Kyle, Krista, Aidan and Liam) has been serving in Belém, Pará since July of 2015.  In November of 2017, Calvary Chapel Belém officially started in a large park in the center of the city during the weekly local fair.  A year later, the church moved into a building located directly across from a large university. While the park ministry continues, the church has been able to grow in fellowship and discipleship in our building.  As an inner-city church, God has called us to focus on the people who are on the fringes of society.  We have a weekly outreach ministry called Proverbs 24:11 aimed at those involved in prostitution.  We also have a weekly ministry serving an indigenous tribe called Warao, who are refugees from Venezuela.  With a number of other ministries such as English Club, and our weekly home fellowship, we stay very busy here!  God is doing an awesome work in our lives and He is using us to draw others to Himself, to strengthen His church and ultimately, to bring Him glory.  Thank you so much for your support!

Catie Smith 

I moved to the Philippines in 2014 as a career missionary with ACTION to follow God’s call on my life. I’ve invested in language & cultural studies and learning from other missionaries. I do life, preach, and teach in Tagalog and Hiligaynon languages. In 2015, I found my current corner of the world in Iloilo, Philippines in relocation housing for survivors of typhoon Yolanda in 2013 where I pioneered a ministry, The Peace-Peace Learning Center.  This is a place for kids to eat a healthy breakfast every day before school and engage in fun learning in our library, book club, English classes, youth nights and other creative events.  Creating encounters with Jesus is the heart of everything we do here.  Through partnering with our neighbors, community leaders, and local churches, we are pursuing to disciple communities as a whole to live a new way of life that Jesus shows us.  

Rachel Chavez

I will be serving at least 2 years on the North coast of the Dominican Republic in a small town called Caraballo with Kids Alive International. This is a nonprofit organization that serves at-risk children in 12 countries around the world. I will be working at the Park School and Care Center in Caraballo where I will serve as a Learning Mentor. Part of my role will be to help bring special education services and help build a special education program at this school. Dominican public schools are the lowest rated education system in all of Latin America and also Special Education is really not an available program in most of Latin America. I will start by working one-on-one with students and working closely with the school psychologist to identify some of the students' needs and to get to know the students more. I will also help teach some vocational classes which will be a new opportunity for community members. This will allow people from the community to come and take life skills classes to which they can hopefully find a job with the learned skills afterwards. I will also be helping to start a volleyball ministry for young girls who often do not have the opportunity to play sports where they grow up! I'm so looking forward to sharing Jesus' love with the students, supporting the school staff/missionaries/students, walking through life with them, and allowing the Lord to work through me. 

Pastor Ray Dash

We, Pastor Ray, Ruthie and children , consider ourselves American missionaries. We were called, of the Lord, out of our pursuit of the American dream into one of the toughest cities in our country, Newark, NJ with a population of almost 300k, a high poverty rate, with which come high crime rates (Google has it listed as one of the most unfriendly city in the world).
   Our mission is to reach people and teach them the value of living a life in relationship with Jesus. We do this in many ways
   *We have an active church, which is very diverse in culture, (about five nationalities).
    *Our church also has many young people who attend on there own accord. This allows us to impact their lives in the hope of changing the next generation.
   *We have a presence in our community from the schools, and into the surrounding housing developments. We often engage in various forms of community activities and relationships that foster opportunities to proclaim the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
   *We have sheltered several teens in our home and are currently housing a seventeen year old, who has recently had a baby, as part of our mission.
The Rock Christian Fellowship is active in and passionate about soul winning, discipleship, and repentance that brings about transformed lives,  in an effort to equip the next generation for godliness, through their own relationship with Christ Jesus.

Terry & Cyndi Cirre

God called Terry and Cyndi to support Bible translation with Wycliffe in 2014. They realized the needs in Papua New Guinea (over 850 languages; with 176 languages having translation projects underway, while about 311 languages still needing engagement). Terry and Cyndi completed their required training and after building their partnership team, they moved to Papua New Guinea in July 2016, along with their youngest son, Levi.

It is not enough to simply have God’s Word translated and into the hands of the people. We must come alongside to assist with literacy, discipleship, and church engagement so that Papua New Guineans know and live God's Word which leads to changed lives and transformed communities.

Terry is serving as the Regional Director for the Highlands Region. He assists and manages the translation teams and makes regular visits to the language communities, maintaining relationships with Papua New Guinean leaders. Terry also manages the Highlands Audio Bible Project where he coordinates audio recordings for the solar powered audio Bibles. These audio Bibles have had a huge impact on overcoming illiteracy and we are seeing many lives changed, as they hear God's Word for the first time in their own heart language.

Cyndi is using her skills in Bookkeeping and Accounting with the Finance office in Ukarumpa, the main center for translation work in Papua New Guinea.

Please consider how you might partner with Terry and Cyndi in their Wycliffe ministry, financially or in prayer.

India

Our church supports a ministry that serves a tribal community from one of the lowest castes in India. The ministry has several after school tutoring programs that help the education of this low-income area. Children can get after school tutoring during the weekdays and on the weekend, there are activities that help to share the gospel with these children. The missionary that we support is a native Indian from the same caste as the children that he ministers to. When he was a child, he was sponsored as Compassion child.  This sponsored continued after he aged out of Compassion and it helped him to get a college education. From the support given by our church and another 501c3 with local ties, he is able to buy supplies for the children, snacks, and computers for the facilities. Please pray for this ministry and his safety. India has become really hostile country for native Christians. We have not mentioned his name for his safety.
