Launch out in Global Missions

This year, our Missions Committee focus is on missionary work in Japan, Brazil, and Thailand. The Japan 2017 Team has already returned from their ministry to the Tsunami-affected Rifu Oasis Chapel. The Brazil 2017 Team has returned from their ministry with Hope Unlimited

These Missions are all funded by Advent Conspiracy, a national Christian movement each Christmas to reallocate our usual Christmas spending toward things that are changing the world with the love of Jesus.

Our Thailand Team and it's work with ITDP (Integrated Tribal Development Program) is leaving this October 25-November 8.

Read the 2017 Thailand Team's Prayer Letter


Starting October 13, please join us for 30 Days of Prayer for Hope. Each morning leading up to Orphan Sunday on November 12, you will receive an email devotional to help you pray for the children at HOPE and many more yet to be rescued from abuse and exploitation.
