The church’s mission is to reach out to everyone, everywhere. A leadership role in this is played by the Missions Group. We support several missionary families who are working to share the gospel with others.
Calvin & Ruth Mathys in Papua New Guinea
The Mathys family have the privilege of working with Wycliffe Bible Translators and alongside Papua New Guineans in roles that support the ongoing ministry of Bible translation.
Daniel & Kaylynn Mills
For the past 34 years, Dan and Kaylynn have been involved in the Pacific Islands Campus Crusade for Christ: 3 years in Palau, 2 years on Guam, and 5 years in the Solomon Islands. Their 4 kids were born and raised in the Islands and they have spent the past 21 years in New Zealand, where they continue to assist the Pacific Island staff in their ministries, primarily through their leadership in student ministry in Papua New Guniea.
