Reaching the world.

our dream

Empowering and equipping Fearless Followers to form relationships that bring Jesus’ transformation in our world.

Why missions?

In our missional activities we work with partners to reach people with the hope and love of Jesus and to restore what’s broken.

We work with many partners to reach people through church planting, pastoral training, child sponsorships and missions trips. We work to restore what’s broken through foster care and adoption, mentoring, recovery programs and life-skills training. 

There’s plenty of opportunity for every follower of Jesus to engage missionally.


The Belize partnerships exist to connect missionally minded volunteers with well-led organizations in San Pedro to foster collaborative Kingdom work.  Contact Bryan Linn


Our purpose is to partner with and walk alongside Jubilee Centre in integral mission: that is, to be salt and light in their communities. We would love to have you join our team! Contact Mary Jo Busscher:


Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America. Residents are faced with high unemployment, unsafe water and low educational levels.  In addition to planting a church, our partnership with Avance Missionero Church has focused on building church leaders, training children’s ministry leaders, developing a prison ministry team and equipping leaders to teach others how to handle their finances. Our ministry in Honduras is expanding and we’d love to have you join us! To learn more, contact Jack Dykstra


Our purpose is to partner with Hope of the Nations in their vision of bringing the hope of Jesus Christ and the Word of God to the people of East Africa.  Hope of the Nations is raising up leaders through its Primary School, Bible College, village outreach, trade school, youth camp and other kid’s clubs.
