Church Planting and Evangelism

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

- Colossians 3:16 -

When people gather to study the Word of God and learn to apply it to their lives, they begin to experience his love and grace. Our missionaries are working to start and support gatherings of believers by planting churches, supporting house churches, and leading outreach programming.
