Missionaries

We are blessed to be able to support several missionaries and ministries through our faith promise missions program. We believe that missions is the “heartbeat” of the local church.  Every New Testament church should have a burden to reach people in their area, as well as taking the Gospel to the “uttermost parts of the earth.”  Currently we support seventeen different missionaries representing fifteen different mission fields, including the military and two “creative access” countries where traditional missionaries aren’t welcome, as well as one ministry organization.  Below are some of the ministries we support.

 landisduo
Name: Bob & Joyce Landis Location: MTT Ministries
Description:  When Bob and Joyce Landis were working as youth directors in their local church they quickly saw the importance of training young people to serve the Lord. It became evident that they had to show them, not just tell them, how to serve. So they began training their youth group and taking them on short-term mission trips. Soon families from other areas began asking whether their teens could travel with them as well. As a result, Make a Timothy Today Ministries (MTT) was born. MTT has ministered in 15 different countries around the world and now takes out as many as six teams a year. MTT is an avenue for young people to seek God’s will or just to make a difference somewhere in the world.

Name: MTT Ministries Location: Greenville, SC
Description:  Make a Timothy Today (MTT) ministries exist to help independent, fundamental, Bible-believing churches produce Christ-centered young people with a servant’s heart.  Their theme is “Molding the next generation for Christ.”  They work to give college and high school students an opportunity to serve the Lord through short-term mission trips around the world. They believe that a mission trip can be a life-changing experience for the Christian young person.  They training every team before each trip because they believe that every Christian should be “prepared unto every good work.” (II Tim.2:21) The training is important so that the team is a help and not a burden or hindrance on the mission field. The training also provides fertile ground in which to grow spiritual fruit that can remain in the lives of each team member.

lawsons
Name: Brian & Jessica Lawson Location: Brazil
Description:
The Lawson family serves in Brazil.  A “saved” man once told Bro. Lawson that he thought having six children and going to the mission field would be a burden to the Lord. His comments made it sound impossible for their family to get to the mission field. The Lord had other plans.  The Lord has worked graciously in their lives and they now have a web site to inform the world about what God is doing in missions.  They appreciate your prayers and support as they endeavor to reach Brazil with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
