These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

Amanda serves full-time with InterVarsity at the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire where she coaches the student leadership team, equips students to share the gospel in their context, and trains students in inductive manuscript Bible study. Amanda especially enjoys discipling students one-on-one and teaching at retreats and conferences in the region!

Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.


Dakota Alliance Church - Sisseton, South Dakota: For over a decade, CCC has sent a mission team to Sisseton, South Dakota, a small town on the Lake Traverse Reservation. There the team partners with the Dakota Alliance Church, which is primarily Native American. During the week the team hosts a Vacation Bible School for the kids, serves meals to the team and the church, enjoys campfires together, holds community outreach events, plays sports and games with community youths, and generally continues to strengthen the relationship with our Christ-following brothers and sisters in Sisseton.


Creating Hope 4 Cambodia: CCC sponsors stateless Vietnamese students at our missions partner New Hope Schools in Cambodia. Each November, our annual Creating Hope 4 Cambodia event (founded in 2009 by Marti Ogren) raises the funds to keep these students in school. If you’d like to be a part of this Fundraiser event, contact Amy Majsterski.

Mission 2535 is committed to facilitating this opportunity for you to be involved in a short-term mission trip and see what a difference you can make in our beloved, impoverished communities of the Dominican Republic.

Africa

Karl & Martha Kirkman and Year-Round Team - West Africa: This year-round missionary team, joined each winter by our own Karl & Martha Kirkman, teach English lessons to university students at the team's youth center. Through these lessons, relationships are developed that provide opportunities to go deeper into God's story and to introduce the students to Jesus.

Southeast Asia- Cambodia

Marie Ens - Place of Rescue - Cambodia: Rescue Cambodia is a haven for families living with HIV/AIDS, orphan children and elderly women who have been left destitute. Rescue's three locations offer help to the helpless and hope to the hopeless in Jesus’ name. Rescue offers a good future. Even when our orphan children grow up and move into adulthood, they can always call "Rescue" home. CCC's kidcity sponsors four of these students and CCC families sponsor additional children; contact Danae Goetz if you would like to know more about sponsoring a child.


Dave and Chris Manfred - Cambodia: Dave and Chris Manfred have been serving with Alliance Missions in Cambodia for more than 25 years.  David has been the Field Director, overseeing the Alliance’s ministry in Cambodia, for nearly 20 years. Our team consists of more than 30 adults serving in:  Christian leadership development through two Bible schools, medical work, church planting amongst unreached peoples and places, Bible translation (currently working on 2 different translations).  Chris oversees the Alliance “Family Home” which is a Christian Guest House for the broader mission community in Cambodia.  She has also overseen a new addiction recovery center ministry.  From March 2020 to June 2021, the Alliance Missions team was privileged to see 20 new house churches started throughout Cambodia.


Soueth and Syna Lao - Cambodia: Soeuth and Syna are Cambodian Americans who came to the States separately in the early 1980's as teenage refugees and attended school in the USA. In 1995, God called them back to serve Him in their homeland; they are currently based in the Anlong Veng district in the northern part of the country. Their ministry focuses are facilitating National Khmer Evangelical Church (KEC) youth ministry, discipleship & leadership training, and working closely with northwest region church plant ministries. The Laos are blessed to serve alongside faithful, committed, humble and God-fearing KEC leaders; they find that the field is ready for harvest and the workloads are plenty, but few trained workers are available and the need for more national workers to join is great. Although Along Veng has dark histories from the Killing Field/Pol Pot regime, God has miraculously turned this dark soil (which was once soaked with human blood) to become a living field where 22 Alliance house churches have been planted between 2017- 2024! 


New Hope Schools - Cambodia: These three schools in Cambodia serve 200 students, ages 5-14, who are from stateless Vietnamese families. In Cambodia, these people are considered the least of these and live in extreme poverty.  Because of the generations of poverty, the goal of the schools is to give these families hope, education, break the cycle of poverty, and teach them about Jesus. The cost to sponsor one student's education is $220 a year; CCC's annual Creating Hope 4 Cambodia fundraiser raises the funds to sponsor 80+ of these students.

Western Asia

Mark and Melissa Briggs - Middle East: Mark and Melissa Briggs' main ministry is digitally reaching the lost (evangelism) and building up new and existing believers (discipleship), using the internet and digital devices for turning the lost into Christ-centered multiplying disciples.
