Sent Church

Missionary Partners

Outside of living sent locally and globally, we also support several missionary partners that serve in the United States and abroad. You will find ways to connect and learn more about those we support below.

Lara Strain

Lara serves GAiN, a ministry of CRU that provides humanitarian aid and the gospel message to people living in tough places around the world. Her role is to tell stories of how tangible acts of love and the hope of Christ changes lives. She tells stories of need, getting the word out to people who can and will help alleviate suffering. Stories and pictures motivate people to action, and ultimately, people come to accept Jesus.
