Our Missions Teams

Currently…

We have 2 teams ministering in Europe and 2 student journeymen in Europe and North America.  We have 2 teams preparing for Puerto Rico in August.

For our team in Europe:

  • Saturday: Safe travel & uneventful passage thru customs, for flexibility and for our families.
  • Sunday: Elimination of cultural barriers.  Unity among our team and the local team in Romania.
  • Monday: Preparations, training and that we would be wholly devoted to Christ & ready to serve.
  • Tuesday: Pray that ears and hearts will be receptive to the gospel.
  • Wednesday: That the Holy Spirit would lead and use us to share the gospel in ways the people can understand.
  • Thursday: That the lives of our team members and those we serve would be changed by the work of the Holy Spirit.
  • Friday:  That campers will connect with local Bible teaching churches when they return home.
  • Daily: That all glory for what is accomplished will be given to God and not ourselves.

For our Puerto Rico team

  • Those God calls to respond
  • Unity as the team begins to form
  • God to make a way for funding for the individuals as well as supplies needed

Developing a Lifestyle of Generosity

The world seems to constantly say to us that the key to life is holding tightly to all you can get. But scripture says we can live generous, open-handed lives. So, how do you live with an attitude of open-handed living in a tight-fisted world?

Would you be willing to take 30-days to discover the keys to developing that lifestyle? Download a free 30-day devotional app for your Apple or Android device and take the challenge!
