Missions

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.

  • Jessi

    About Jessi:

    Jessi aims to use her skills as a Midwife and Registered Nurse to build relationships with women in an unreached part of the developing world. As part of a team working together to build Kingdom-communities, Jessi longs to bring women, their families and their surrounding communities into Abundant Life. She is in the process of building a support team and hopes to be overseas long term next year. (Jessi is heading towards security-sensitive contexts, so please do not share her name or any other specifics online to protect her and her team). 


    About the organization that Jessi serves:

    Our aim is to mobilize teams to glorify God among those who have never heard His Name. By sending inter-denominational (often international) teams into areas where Jesus is not-yet-known, we use strategic and creative approaches to share the Good News and raise up local Kingdom-communities to reach their own contexts.


    Connect with Jessi:  Please email the office to get contact info for Jessi.

  • Dave & Linda Flamm with Arctic Barnabas

    The mission of Arctic Barnabas is to strengthen and encourage pastor and missionary families to effectively advance the Gospel Jesus Christ in Alaska and Canada.


    Linda & Dave  serve with Arctic Barnabas Ministries in Kenai, Alaska. Dave serves as the ministry director. They have been serving in Alaska for over 20 years.

  • M.A.R.C.

    To expand the reach of the Gospel in Alaska by:


    - Flying people and supplies where there are no roads.

    Using a variety of aircraft, we provide cost-shared passenger & cargo transportation to pastors and their families, missionaries, churches, para-church organizations, Bible camps, and short-term work groups conducting ministry activity in Alaska, Far Eastern Russia, and Northern Canada.  


    - Supporting other missionaries and their aircraft.

    Mission work in remote Alaska necessitates a heavy reliance upon air transportation. As such, many individual missionaries and supporting organizations own & operate their own aircraft. However, proper aircraft maintenance is not only time consuming & costly, it is very difficult in the harsh terrain & weather conditions of Alaska. To help our partners maintain a focus upon their primary mission efforts and to help ensure the safe operation of their aircraft, we operate a maintenance facility that sustains & repairs their aircraft at a much reduced cost to these ministries. This effort is done in addition to the large task of maintaining our own aircraft fleet in a state of near constant readiness. 


    - Training Missionary-Minded Pilots and Mechanics.

    We’re privileged to reinvest our God-given aviation & maintenance talents into the lives of other Christians who share our concern for reaching the hearts of the Native Alaskans. Today we utilize our instructor-certified pilots to provide flight instruction to others who are interested in using aviation as a ministry tool; and we’re also honored to train pastors, missionaries, and other organizations in the field maintenance skills needed to operate in remote areas.

  • Persecution Project

    Persecution Project Foundation (PPF) provides active compassion for the persecuted. We bring crisis relief and spiritual hope to victims of civil war, genocide and religious persecution. We also provide on-the-ground assistance while restoring hope and rebuilding communities through the love of Christ.

    PPF was founded in 1997 by Brad Phillips. In 1998, Brad traveled to war-ravaged Sudan and shot hours of video chronicling brutal persecution against Christians by the National Islamic Front government (now known as the National Congress Party).

    This began a long journey, taking PPF through virtually every corner of South Sudan. PPF helped local pastors plant churches, supported orphans, built medical clinics, provided emergency relief to refugees—and kept taking pictures.

    In 2004, PPF expanded its work to include a growing number of refugees on the Darfur border fleeing the genocide taking place in that province. In 2009, a Safe Water program was started to provide safe water to the marginalized in Sudan and South Sudan. In 2011, PPF began an intense campaign to assist one of Sudan’s largest Christian minorities living in the Nuba mountains of Southern Kordofan by founding savethenuba.com. Outreaches include safe water borehole repairs, medical relief, crisis relief items, and distribution of discipleship materials for local evangelistic efforts. 

    PPF’s work continues with support of the Jebel Lopit Training Center, Eastern Equatoria South Sudan, where a new generation of leaders are trained to lead the world’s newest nation.
