MISSIONS

  • The Blessing Board is a Christ-centered, non profit organization that picks up and receives donated furniture, appliances and household goods then re-donates them to people who need them. A volunteer-based organization, TBB's vision is that everyone being served and serving there experiences wholeness. In a world of brokenness and alienation, the Lord of the Gospel alone offers that to us. Everyone who comes to TBB receives a copy of the New Testament and is exposed to the love of Christ through the volunteers serving them.

  • Each year thousands of Chinese students and scholars are introduced to the gospel through COM ministry on university campuses. As many become followers of Jesus, we walk alongside them, equipping them to live out their faith in their families, communities, and professions. Each year, COM sends transformed Christian leaders back to China, prepared and committed to being ambassadors of the gospel for their own people and culture.


    China Outreach Ministries is an incorporated, nonprofit organization committed to the historic evangelical Christian faith. COM works cooperatively with a variety of ministries and churches to serve the whole body of Christ and is not officially connected to a particular church or denomination.

    • We offer hospitality, social activities, conversational English, and a variety of practical services to help Chinese students and scholars succeed.
    • As we build friendships, we share Christ and offer Bible studies.
    • We mentor and disciple those who come to Christ and, working with local churches and ministries as much as possible, help believers who return to China become Christ-like leaders for their families, communities, and professions.
  • The CYN fosters the planting, partnering, and networking of relational, Christ-centered youth ministry to the ends that youth can be introduced to the Gospel and grows into a mature relationship with Christ. Their goals and objectives are to: plant relational, Christ-centered, community based youth ministry on islands, partner with Caribbean organizations in order to serve them, and the networking of youth.

  • People often think that healthcare for the poor is second-class healthcare. This has never been the case at ELFHCC. In 2009, we provided nearly 40,000 encounters of "whole-person" care for 8,500 patients. Our most recent patient satisfaction rate was over 95%. ELFHCC operates two comfortable, attractive offices staffed by 18 doctors, all of whom have made and kept a long-term commitment to this practice. Medical Assistance recipients make up approximately 25% of the service area's population, with an estimated 27% completely uninsured. Unemployment is almost 14%, more than double the State and County rates. Health status indicators in the Center's service area are higher than City and County rates across the board. 

  • Ethnos360

    Dave and Fran Jordan

    David and Fran Jordan are missionaries among the Prai people in northern Thailand. The Prai are a poor mountain tribe numbering about 30,000 in Thailand with more in the neighboring country of Laos. The Jordan’s ministry is Bible translation and church planting with the goal of seeing a mature church established among the Prai people. For this to take place the Bible must be translated and taught, believers discipled, and Bible lessons provided for progressive foundational teaching. Dave and a small team of Prai are presently making extensive changes to the translation  I Corinthians.

  • The Hendrickson family began on September 8, 2001. After a typical Christian College experience, Barrett and Carrie got married. They started out in a small apartment working in student ministry, eating frozen pizzas and Oreos until they bought their first home, which they dubbed "Stopornot Manor". They successfully grew an amaryllis and kept a dog alive before making the bold decision to grow their family. Cortina, Paisley, and Soren replaced the flower and dog. The family grew when Marissa (Pete) joined full-time in 2016.


    In the years since 2001, the Hendricksons have continued to believe that the Lord has called them into ministry, Barrett and Carrie have pursued this call by working with students, the children joining them as they all seek to show people the light of Christ, and how faith in Him is essential to a full life, to the glory of God.


    When the Caribbean Youth Network and Kirk of the Pines called, they knew this was the place for them to continue seeking to reach new people with the love of Christ.

    Robbie Rubio

    Robbie has been ministering to middle school and high school students since 2008. His most recent ministry was as a Young Life Area Director in the wealthy suburbs of northern Virginia. Two years ago, he felt the Lord tugging on his heart to relocate, so he began praying about where that might be. Growing up in a single parent home, with a mother who worked hard to make ends meet, he felt called to a ministry with those of a similar background.

     

    When the East Hills position at Young Life opened, he jumped at the opportunity to serve there. Robbie and his fiancé, Andriena, will be married in August 2020.
