The Lord desires that people all over the world have a personal relationship with Him full of love, joy, peace, and excitement of life. To do our part in reaching the whole world we pray, we give, and we go.
On a regular basis we pray for specific needs of missionaries around the world. Obviously reaching out to the world is impossible without the involvement of the Lord. In the Spring we have a special emphasis for mission work in the US and in Canada. In the Summer we emphasize the northeast area of Ohio. The Fall has a focus on missions within our state. And in the early Winter season, we target the rest of the world.
We cooperate with over 46,000 churches and many other participating groups to help support over 10,000 full-time missionaries locally and globally: including Youngstown, the state of Ohio, throughout the United States, and around the world. Our giving goes beyond just finances; it also includes Bibles, care packages with toiletries, clothing, food, etc. What a joy to hear how Jesus Christ uses our contributions to change the lives of people.
It’s one thing to hear what is going on around the world; it’s even better to be there!
