Global

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.

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  HPDCaptainJack@yahoo.com
