Actively promote and participate in the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.
Through prayer, finances, and short-term teams we will develop long-term partnerships with missionaries who plant or support viable, reproducing, indigenous churches that proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in areas where there is little Christian presence.
We support three international missionaries, Robbie and Murray Lathrop with Mission to the World, Christopher and Donnette Brock with Mission to the World, and a Montana couple serving in the Middle East with Gospel Partners.

Robbie and Murray Lathrop
Robbie and Murray Lathrop grew up in South Carolina. Their work with short-term mission teams around the world led them to Nicaragua in 2001. Burdened with the tremendous spiritual and physical needs of the Nicaraguan people, they followed God’s call to return and serve there as a family in 2005.
Robbie’s background in marketing, construction, and engineering has allowed him to use his skills on the mission field to meet many needs. Their ministry includes developing a national pastoral training center; coordinating short-term teams; providing shelter, food, clothing, and medical care; and sharing the gospel with the needy. Robbie and Murray hope their efforts in mercy ministry will lay the groundwork for a church-planting team in Nicaragua.
Mission to the World (France)
Christopher and Donnette Brock
When Chris started seminary in 2009, both he and Donnette already sensed that the Lord was calling them to the mission field. Chris felt a strong call toward pastoral ministry and church planting, and Donnette was also interested in finding a way to serve the Lord with her administrative gifts. In 2011 the Brocks accepted a call to serve as church planters in southwest France. Chris was ordained with the PCA in 2013, and the Brocks moved to France in January of 2015.
Only about 1 percent of the people in France identify as evangelical Christian, and only around 10 percent have ever opened a Bible. The Brocks are serving alongside a team that works in partnership with a Reformed, evangelical French denomination, in order to plant a church in the southwest area of Toulouse, the aerospace capital of France. It is their prayer and desire to see this church flourish as a gospel light to those around them in this dynamic and growing city.
