Interested in missions?

We support mission teams all around the world.  If you have a heart for missions, please give us a call.

These are just a few of the teams we support all around the world:

Bill & Bethany McClure – Missionaries to Antuqua/Barbuda

Our hearts have been ripped wide open for the people of Antigua and the Caribbean, who typically live in poverty, spiritual darkness and also for the  many who are homeless or prostitutes. We had no idea that this was such an issue, typically you think of the Caribbean and see cruise ships, beaches, resorts! Not a need for God or His love and power... but there is... a HUGE need. After extensive language training in Costa Rica (till August) we will be going to Antigua.   While we are in Antigua, we will be building up the new AG church, Vida Nueva.  Bethany will be working closely with the Children's Ministry to reach the children of Antigua.  I will be [...]

Community Table – Wonderful Opportunities to Serve!

A few times a year our church provides and serves a hot meal for the bi-weekly “Community Table” held at the local Fire hall. This event is organized by Hopewell Love Inc. and the meals are always followed by a local food bank distribution. Different churches and organizations take turns serving. Last week we had the privilege of serving. Many different people in our church volunteer to contribute parts of the meal, so that we can provide a delicious dinner with drinks, meat, sides, salad, and a variety of desserts. Many people enjoy serving at this event because it gives them an opportunity to treat all those attending as honored guests. It’s also an excellent time to sit and talk [...]

Christmas In Birdsboro

Once again, our involvement in Christmas in Birdsboro was very exciting! What a privilege it was to be able to come alongside our local borough and support them as they celebrated Christmas. It’s always a chilly night and this year was no exception. However, our volunteers bundle up and come ready to serve and bless our community. Our worship team provided live music on the main stage which included many favorite Christmas carols as well as worship songs. Many more volunteers took a shift serving free popcorn and hot chocolate. Our borough has really made this event a success, and people from all over Berks county come to enjoy the live music, ice sculptures, concessions, and even fireworks. We are [...]

Roger & Sharon Holland – Intercultural Ministries

The Lord has called us to a great need in our country to prepare and recruit workers to build churches among the Hispanic Districts of the Assemblies of God.  We cannot deny the growth and the need that there is.  By the year 2050 the United States of America is projected to be the largest Spanish speaking country in the world.  Every day souls are lost and it is our responsibility to reach them,  As many of you know we had been working with Teen Challenge in Bolivia.  That work continues on with its own Bolivian Pastoral Board members who are supervising the work, a beautiful young couple as pastors and directors of the Church and Center, Pastor David [...]

Love Loud 2017

What an exciting day it was as four different churches worked together to share the love of God and provide a variety of support services to our community! We called this event “LOVE LOUD” because we wanted to love the people of Birdsboro well, meet some of their physical needs, and share the amazing love of Jesus with them. We were honored to partner with Birdsboro Church of the Nazarene, Zion Mennonite of Morgantown, and St. Paul’s UCC of Douglassville. We had over 50 volunteers from these churches, many of whom met the night before the event for a prayer rally. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day and were able to provide our local community with hair [...]

The Deal Family | Missionaries in Senegal

Brett & Elise Deal Daphne, Ava, Henry, and Fiona ENTERING THE UPPER ROOM - In the heart of Parcelles, one of the largest neighborhoods of the Northern shore of Dakar, sits a five story hotel. Bright yellow paint is slowly chipping at the edges while one palm tree rises out of the sand to welcome you in. The hotel sits across the street from a bustling market. People shuttling back and forth below this gold-and-glass inn as buses and horse carts roll up and down in front. This hotel is our church’s temporary home. Walking through the dark lobby, tiled and poorly lit, leads to an unmarked door at the back. Light spills through the open door where the [...]

Liz Miller | Sharing Christ with North African Muslims in France

Missionary Spotlight on. . . LIZ MILLER DECLARING HIS GLORY: SHARING CHRIST WITH NORTHAFRICAN MUSLIMS IN FRANCE Liz is a missionary through Christar to Muslim women in Lyon, France for the past six years. Her team has a goal of planting a church among the North African Muslim population in Lyon. Many Muslims come from other countries to France in hopelessness. Many of them believe the eternal hope we have in Christ doesn’t exist in France. They do not have access to a church that preaches the gospel in their own language and culture. We try to show them that Christ changes lives, outlooks and desires. One of the things I love about the ministry here in Lyon is [...]
