Serve Globally
Our desire is to bring glory to God by reaching the entire world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With that in mind, we partner with many churches, people and organizations around the globe that we believe have a common desire and passion to reach, gather, and grow. Our passion is to partner with organizations that are making disciples of Jesus Christ by establishing the church in their communities or by caring for orphans in their local context.

Establishing the Church

Art Carpio - Philippines
Pastor Art is a church planter in one of the most populous island nations in the world. Art, his wife Mely, and children Danrev, Gladys, and Faith, serve among the indigenous Filipinos in the northern Philippines. Along with planting more than 40 churches, Art also runs a Bible College for men and women who have been called to full-time ministry. Art, along with fellow pastors and church planters, have a heart to reach not only all of the Philippines with the Gospel, but all of Asia as well.

Logan Teall - Indonesia
Logan, his wife Kenra, and two boys Laken and Liam, are serving among a remote island people group who have never heard of Jesus Christ. They are learning the culture, language, and living life among the people group, and through that, using the opportunity to translate the Scriptures to their own language, as well as teaching and sharing about Jesus Christ.

Caring for Oprhans

Key of Hope – Durban, South Africa
Key of Hope (Dan & Rachel Smither, founders) is bringing God’s love to children affected by AIDS in Durban, South Africa. Through regular home visits, sports teams, and music programs, Key of Hope is building solid long-term relationships that open the door for us to provide food, clothing, education, and the life saving message of hope in Jesus Christ.

Back2Back Ministries - Mexico, Nigeria, India, Haiti
Since 1997, Back2Back has been impacting the lives of children around the world. Through a five-point Child Development Plan, Back2Back strives to provide holistic care to each child we serve, meeting spiritual, physical, educational, emotional and social needs that they might overcome their life circumstances and break free from the cycle of generational poverty. Today, Back2Back provides care for today and hope for tomorrow to abandoned orphans and vulnerable children in Mexico, Nigeria, India and Haiti. The care for today is accomplished in part through you, Back2Back’s ministry teams and partners, who visit year round and help provide basic necessities. The staff stands back to back with the directors and national staff that serve daily in the children’s homes. Back2Back comes alongside with physical, financial and human resources, encouragement, prayer, and training. They model Paul’s teaching "that we are delighted to share not only the gospel, but our lives as well" (1 Thess. 2:8).
