The plan of God is to redeem a group of people who are his very own, and this group of people will be called out and redeemed "from every tribe and language and people and nation (Rev. 5:9b)."  In short, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for the entire world!  God will not stop until he has created his people from the nations, and we want to be caught up in God's universal redemptive plan. 

To that end, we have partnered with several individual missionaries and agencies, ranging from here in Michigan to across the world.  Here is a listing of the missionaries and mission agencies that we have partnered with:

 

Sojourn Network 

 

A network of evangelical, reformed baptistic churches that covenant together to plant more and healthier churches

“Every day thousands of people in Sub-Saharan Africa die because of AIDS. Children affected by HIV and AIDS are often stigmatized and marginalized by society and their communities, left to live off the streets or in overcrowded, underfunded orphanages, severed from their families.” 

Christ’s Hope International cares for these orphaned and vulnerable children through Ministry CarePoints. Ministry CarePoints are strategically located centers that provide children with holistic care, biblical teaching, and the ability to live with extended or foster families rather than being institutionalized or living on the streets. When a child attends our Ministry CarePoint, they not only receive holistic care but are discipled by our CareGivers, enrolled in school, tutored by our CareGivers, and given access to regular medical care.  

We partner with the Manzanza Ministry CarePoint in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Sue Wright Ministry CarePoint in Jamanique

CHARLIE & RACHEL

Charlie and Rachel, serve as a part of PALM (Preparing Arab-world Leaders for Ministry) a ministry of Pioneers.  

PALM seeks to gather individual Muslim-background followers of Christ into discipleship groups, where they can grow together into spiritual maturity as part of reproducing churches. God is drawing Muslims to himself today! But only by ensuring the formation of strong, biblical, courageous, disciple-making churches, will we see the Arab world enduringly transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Charlie and Rachel serve the Arab world from a base in Europe.
