Missionary Spotlights

Missionary Spotlights

Through prayer, discernment, training and partnership, we help send long-term missionaries around the world to make much of Jesus and raise up disciple-making disciples through sending organizations and church plant partnerships.

We encourage you to become familiar with each of these missionaries who have dedicated a minimum of two years of their lives in cross-cultural ministry, trading their comforts for sacrificial generosity and placing Jesus before all things in their lives. Click on their links, follow them on social media and get involved. They would love to hear from you!
