Bill and Connie McDonald have ministered in Latin America since 1989. As pioneer pastors, they founded Centro Cristiano (Christian Center) in Ecuador’s Andean mountain city of Cuenca. The church has grown to over 4000 in Sunday attendance. Further, the mother church has planted over 20 daughter churches.

 

Cuenca is a city of 500,000 where less than half of one percent of the population are believers. “We’ve traveled through the mountains, jungles and islands of Ecuador planting churches among groups with little or no gospel witness,” Bill says. “We’ve also been able to multiply our efforts by training church leaders and lay people to begin and develop churches in these unreached areas.” Besides church planting, Bill and Connie are establishing Christian schools in cooperation with the Assemblies of God’s Latin America Child Care program. LACC schools offer sponsored students a Christ-centered education, as well as a uniform, a hot meal, and basic medical care. Hundreds of students in Ecuador have been reached through the schools Bill and Connie have started.

 

Through the founding of UNSION Hispanic Family Television they are seeing over 6000 commitments to Christ annually responding to the call-in Counseling services offered.  The McDonalds have a specific goal of equipping and training 100 new leaders to plant 100 new churches in 100 unreached communities, villages and cities of Ecuador. The Bible schools, Child Care schools and television station are aides and tools to accomplish this monumental task.

Jim and Jill Susa have been missionaries since 1985. Due to the situation in Venezuela, AGWM has removed the missionaries from Venezuela for a time. Jimmy and Jill have accepted an assignment in Colombia, where they will be working pioneering churches, training leaders and pastors, and ministering to the police and army bases. 

 

All projects in Venezuela will remain active. Jimmy and Jill continue to keep close contact with their pastoral team and the A/G executives. Prayers for this country are appreciated! Thank you so much!! 

 

Both Jimmy and Jill felt a call into missions at quite an early age.  Both left home to study and prepare themselves for missionary work in 1974.  After working and studying for 6 years in Ecuador with an independent mission, the Susa's became a part of the Kentucky Assemblies of God, where they were associate pastors at Faith A/G, in London, Kentucky, for close to 3 years.  After full appointment, they went to Venezuela in 1985, where they have served as missionaries for the past 30 years.

Account #2791275

Kent and Paige Parrish are missionaries to Indonesia and Asia Pacific. They have served in the Philippines since 2008 and are now serving in Indonesia. They have seen a church of 20 in 2008 become 60 house churches reaching over 1200 people regularly!  The work is thriving and will continue through our missionary friends and partners.

 

In June 2018, the Parrishes will head to Indonesia to :

  1.  Reach and equip college students through Chi Alpha (Campus)

  2.  Meet physical and spiritual needs through compassion ministries  (Compassion)

  3.  Work alongside Indonesian pastors to plant churches among the unreached  (Church Planting)

   

With about 17,000 islands and a population of 250 million, Kent and Paige desire that churches will be planted among those who are unreached. 

David & Emily Trementozzi

David will be teaching and training future pastors and leaders at Continental Theological Seminary (CTS) in Brussels, Belgium. CTS is a premier Pentecostal graduate school that brings together students from all through Europe and around the world. Many CTS students, after graduating, return home to serve in major leadership roles in the national church of their respective countries.

Emily’s extensive missionary work has trained her for cross cultural ministry and given her a heart to share the gospel with those in hopeless and desperate situations. Emily will be working in a variety of capacities related to compassion ministry.

Steve & Deanne Turley began their missionary service in January 1991 with International Media Ministries in Brussels, Belgium. At IMM they were part of a team producing radio and television programs for Europe, Africa and Asia.

In 1999 they transitioned to university ministry and co-launched Students for Christ Belgium.  SFC is the international equivalent of Chi Alpha, the U.S. Assemblies of God ministry to the secular campus. SFC Belgium currently has groups in 5 cities with some 150 students involved and hundreds of alumni. Students or alumni are leading all of the local groups and in 2010 national leadership for SFC Belgium was transitioned to a former student as well. 

 

In addition to their continued involvement in leadership development and training for students and alumni throughout Belgium and across Europe, from 2012 through 2016, Steve and Deanne served the Europe Regional Director, assisting with special projects and events.

 

The Turleys are now sensing a call to the Balkans, the most unreached and challenging area of Europe.  This war-torn and fractured region has been hurting for decades.  Steve and Deanne want to be part of a rejoined and focused effort to bring the hope of Christ to the Balkans.

Jerry and Tunya Adams are missionaries with Living Free. They are called   to share the message that "there is Hope for Recovery" and by using the Living Free Strategy they are able to reach people who have no hope. Living Free Strategy is designed to disciple souls in recovery by helping them discover God's path to hope, faith and freedom and connect to the local body of Christ.

 

Their ministry offers:  (1) referrals  to residential treatment centers,

(2) weekly  support groups,  (3) life coaches and life plan

(4) relapse prevention plan,  (5) monthly  speaker meetings with  “Real Recovery Stories” of hope, and (6) training for local churches  and communities to start up a Living Free ministry.

 

They are available to speak at churches, civic groups and community forums about addiction and recovery.  Jerry and Tunya were appointed missionary associates in May, 2017, and they look forward to sharing with our fellowship the Real RECOVERY STORIES they have already  experienced in the past years. 

Clayton "Skip" and Beth Arp have served as US Missionaries since 1982. While in Kentucky, Skip helped to initiate a strategy to assist rural communities to reach the addicted and their families with Lifeline Connection.  The National Board of Teen Challenge, USA adopted this strategy as their official nonresidential ministry now referred to as Teen Challenge Community.

Our goals:

1) Help Teen Challenge centers add nonresidential recovery ministry with Teen Challenge Community. “Offering hope to every addict!”

2) Help churches provide ministry to their own congregation and community through Living Free. “Facing life’s challenges together!”

3) Help churches come together in communities to offer nonresidential recovery through Living Free Community.  “Offering hope to every community!"

This strategy has 3 components: a Life-plan of Recovery, a Life-coach of Recovery, then Life-groups of Discipleship

Nonresidential recovery ministry offers referrals to Teen Challenge, relationships to those in earlier stages of addictions, re-alignment for family members dealing with the pain of an addicted loved one, and re-establishment for ex-offenders and program graduates.  

America’s drug epidemic and opiate addiction crisis is at an all time critical level, with even the Attorney General’s office in the state of Ohio asking for the church's help! Let’s step up and “make a difference.” Jesus is still the proven cure!

The Vision:

A healthy Spirit-led ministry in every Hispanic Community.

 

With deep values of faith, family and community, Hispanics are open to the gospel. We believe God has called us to inspire and equip the church to plant, grow, and develop Hispanic Ministries. As a family, and US Missionary Candidates, we look forward to partnering with churches and individuals who have a desire to see Hispanic people come to Christ.

 

Quick Facts:

  • The U.S. is the second-largest mission field for Hispanics

  • Only Mexico has a larger Hispanic population than the U.S.

  • Spanish is the second most spoken language in the U.S

    • Over 40 million speakers

  • Hispanics are the largest minority group in the U.S.

  • We have a great opportunity to share the gospel in our own communities!

Ryan & Kathleen Brooks with Murray Chi Alpha

Murray Chi Alpha exists to help Murray State students discover Jesus' plan for their lives and share the goodness of God with others along the way. We believe wherever we are, whatever we are doing, we carry God to that place. We want His Name to be known and His Power to be seen.

 

We are reconciling students to Christ, equipping them through Spirit-filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship and mission to transform the university, the marketplace and the world.

Murray Chi Alpha at Murray State University

Eastern Kentucky University Chi Alpha & Berea Chi Alpha

Chi Alpha is a community of believers dedicated to equipping students with real, transforming faith.  We do this through living a lifestyle of worship and honor to God, and so we meet in both small faith groups called "Connect" groups and large whole group services which we call "Converge" services.  In these meetings we have time for worship, discussion, and teaching centered around living out a life of faith in Christ.  We believe in a life empowered by the Holy Spirit to be God's witnesses and we do this in multiple ways.  

 

We believe the church is God's declaration of His kingdom coming to Earth and so we live this out through various outreach opportunities in our community; striving to serve the real needs of people.  We also strive to see every moment as an opportunity to introduce people to the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us: Jesus Christ.  In that our lives, our actions, and our relationships should all point to the one who saved us proclaiming the Kingdom of God until He comes.  If you would like more information about anything you have read, check us out at our website ekuchialpha.org, our Facebook page of the same name, orcontact Pastor Ben through email.  We would love to have you come be a part of what God is doing at Eastern Kentucky University and Berea College.
