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.

Roger and Lara serve 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.

Our mission team in Peru (Kayleen, Lucy, and Jerson) execute our strategy of equipping leaders and developing a network of thriving churches along the Marañón River. They visit existing churches on a regular basis, as well as seek out new villages.  The team has targeted three new villages where it appears God may be opening up the doors for the Gospel:  Santa Fe, Santa Isabel and Santa Rosa.  Please ask that God would give us favor with the local leaders and provide person of peace (Luke 10:5-6) that would open up their homes to hear.  
Also, the Bible Institute in Nauta is a key part of our strategy for training pastors and church leaders. This facility co-located with the church in Nauta, will provide the space needed for centralized training and increase our ability to train more leaders. The training improves Bible knowledge and equips leaders to more effectively share the Gospel. This year we plan to have 2-3 training sessions in Nauta as well as couple one or two in Iquitos.  They will be taught courses required for pastoral licensing, with a heavy emphasis on preaching and teaching.
