Men We Support

As the apostles were instructed by Jesus, we too share in The Great Commission to take the gospel into all the world.  The following men receive some level of financial support, provided by the contributions of our members.  We are fortunate to be able to partner with these men throughout the world as they endeavor to share the good news with the lost and minister to their flocks.

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Mark 16:15
