God is mightily at work in the world, and we are excited as a church body to partner financially and in prayer with the following organizations and individuals.

In the fall of 2018, Jo moved to St. Petersburg to teach at the International Academy of St. Petersburg, for full-time ministry in Russia.

"Teachers impact lives and cultures through education every day. Our vision is to go beyond – integrating faith and learning in the simple, yet profound belief that through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, lives and cultures will be transformed into Christ’s image.
We wholeheartedly desire to serve our Father’s world, to love Jesus Christ, and to see individuals and societies transformed by His Spirit through education."
YWAM (Youth With A Mission) is a non profit missionary organization to Know God, and to make Him known. YWAM runs “schools” to better equip people to share the gospel in another nation. One of which is a DTS (Discipleship Training School,) where you get to spend 3 months working on your relationship with God, getting to know Him better, and 3 months sharing that with people across the globe.
I love YWAM but more specifically I love what DTS is. At our base we have our values Belong, Become, Impart, Impact. Where you come and you get to just belong- wherever you’re at in life you get to belong here. But because we love you we don’t let you stay in your junk, so we call you higher and you get to Become more of the person that God originally designed you to be. From there you get to impart from our base and impact others. When I came to DTS I was really at a point of emptiness and hardship, but finishing DTS I have new vision, passion, and new found Identity in God. So now my heart is to journey alongside others doing DTS as I staff schools or do base staff.
