Iowa is our mission. We live here and therefore are responsible to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the people in our community and our state. This is the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We also partner with Franklin County Youth For Christ. YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other likeminded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
To accomplish our mission we are partnering with organizations in other states. To this end we have joined together with The Navigators as they seek to touch the lives of college students for Jesus Christ in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri. Ben and Melissa Nugent are area directors of the Navigator Ministries in the Heartland.
To reach into the government of our country, we have partnered with Doug and Janea Weber who serve with The Navigators in Washington DC. Doug and Janea seek to minister to the Congressmen and women and the Senators of our nation providing prayer, care and Bible study opportunities for them so they man encounter Jesus Christ. They also seek to encourage the Christ-followers they find in our nations capital to represent Him well.
In Aguascalientes, Mexico, we partner with church planters Sam and Jenny Hansen. Our partnership with them often goes beyond just financial and prayer support for we often send short term mission teams to help them in their church, camp and seminary work in Aguascalientes.
As we seek to reach our world for Jesus Christ, we are partnering with Bruce and Julie Adamson, Converge Worldwide missionaries to Senegal, West Africa. Bruce and Julie teach English camps where they link the Gospel of Jesus Christ with teaching English so that those in their English camps will come to know the love of God.
In Japan, we are partnering with Jane Fisher, career missionary with Converge Worldwide. Jane teaches 8th grade students at Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ), an International Christian School in Tokyo, Japan. Through this ministry, international students grow academically, but are also equipped spiritually to become Christian leaders in this world. Please pray that more students at CAJ and more of my Japanese friends come to know Christ.
Chris Creech and his wife Faith have served in the ministry for over forty years in Canada and around the world. Currently they are serving with Pinnacle Ministries in several Asian seminaries. Here at Faith we support the work that Chris and Faith are doing and continue to pray for their mission.
