Global Engagement

God is building His Church around the world.

We’re called to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, and we think the best way to carry out that commission is by building deep, long-term partnerships with particular Christian communities around the world.

We partner primarily with believers in Cuba, Egypt, Guatemala, and Mongolia—strengthening and supporting them, listening to and learning from them—believing that no one is better equipped to transform a culture through the love of Christ than its own thriving local church.

We partner with First Presbyterian Church of Havana and visit regularly to encourage the believers there in their ministry. 

 

Our most longstanding Global Partnership. We partner with Heliopolis Evangelical Church in Cairo.

 

Our newest and most travel-accessible partnership. We partner with multiple ministries working to alleviate poverty and hopelessness and strengthen communities. 

 

We partner with Campus Crusade for Christ Mongolia in an extraordinary opportunity to resource the first- and second-generation church in Mongolia, where the gospel only came about 30 years ago.
