Missions Support areas 2019
Mexico City - Jamie Richter
“I will be serving with three other teammates under our coordinators, Lalo and Jamie Rocha, to encourage the Metropolitan Church of Christ and reach out to the community.
We will do this by participating with their coffee shop ministry, assistant-teaching their free English classes that are open to the public, engaging with the youth group, creating and joining small groups, and more. Once I've been a part of these efforts for a while, I'll have the opportunity to start my own ministry to help benefit God's kingdom as well!”
Hildesheim, Germany - Don & Cindy Roehrkasse
With strong commitment and dependability, the Roehrkasse family has ministered in northern Germany for more than 25 years. While their primary efforts are directed towards growing a strong church in the city of Hildesheim, their work has grown to include mentoring smaller congregations in northern Germany and directing annual church camps and retreats for Christians and non-Christians in Germany. In recent years they have conducted a number of parenting workshops in various parts of Germany and dedicate significant time to mentoring and discipling young couples and adults in their local congregation. They serve in Hildesheim alongside their long-time teammates Kyle and Susan Bratcher.
Honduras - School of the Good Samaritan (Kingdom Kids Honduras)
The school strives to shape underprivileged boys and girls with a quality Christ-centered education. The mission of the Good Samaritan School is to honor God by:
Providing a Christ-centered education for the poorest children in Catacamas, Honduras who would not otherwise have an opportunity to receive an education.
Executing a comprehensive Bible curriculum so that by the time the students graduate from the 6th grade they are prepared to commit to Christ.
Ministering to the children, their families and the teachers. In 2018, a part-time campus minister was hired to fulfill this role.
India – Paul Renganathan
Paul Renganathan, with his wife Dorothy, are headquartered in Choolaimedu, Chennai, India. Paul is a native of Kottara and was converted to Christ in 1970. At that time he was disowned by his Hindu family. He then studied at Faith Theological Seminary (1970-72); Southern Asia Bible College (1973-75). In 1976 he began teaching at Siloam Bible College and preached full-time at the Sanatorium church. . Paul has traveled throughout India establishing churches. Early on he saw the need for training new converts to be ministers, thus leading to the establishment of the World Bible College in Chennai. Paul and Dorothy, through endless work, have seen the church grow from 4 members in 1985 to tens of thousands today and thousands of churches.
