“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:18–20)

Amnion Pregnancy Center // HELPOFFERHOPE.ORG
Since 1991, Amnion Crisis Pregnancy Center has provided Christ-centered, compassionate and free services to women and men who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Our caring, biblical, lay-counseling services come along side woman (and couples) in crisis by explaining the sanctity of human life, sharing the gospel message, and providing much-needed, practical assistance throughout the pregnancy. We believe women and men have a right to get evidence-based information from a resource that will not profit from the choices and pregnancy decisions they make. Since our inception, Amnion CPC has assisted over 16,000 women in crisis.
Voice of the Martyrs // persecution.com
The Voice of the Martyrs is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian missions organization dedicated to serving our persecuted family worldwide through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the body of Christ into fellowship with them. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ; his wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In 1965, they were ransomed out of Romania, and soon thereafter they established the global network of missions of which VOM is a part. The Wurmbrands based these missions on Hebrews 13:3, which instructs us to, “Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”
Joshua Project // joshuaproject.net
Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ. Accurate, updated ethnic people group information is critical for understanding and completing the Great Commission. Revelation 5:9 and 7:9-10 show us that there will be some from every tribe, every tongue, every nation and every people group before the Throne of God in Heaven. Providing information on missionary work to the more than 6,900 unreached/least reached people groups of the world, the Joshua Project gathers, integrates and shares people group information to encourage pioneer church-planting movements among every ethnic group and to facilitate effective coordination of mission agency efforts.
Global Missions Supported by
Our Congregation & Denomination
Westminster Biblical Missions // wbminc.org
Westminster Biblical Missions is committed to planting and multiplying Reformed churches on the foreign field. To accomplish this, believers must be trained to teach their own people of Christ and His truth. The role of foreign missionaries should not be that of doing the work so much as that of showing nationals how to do it-training them to stand in the faith, defend the faith, and spread the faith. Westminster Biblical Missions receives its name from its commitment to a biblical approach to missions and its understanding of the Bible as set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms; and they are fully committed to these standards.
Middle East Reformed Fellowship // merf.org
Middle East Reformed Fellowship (MERF) is an evangelical Christian missionary organization which serves in the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia on behalf of Reformed and Presbyterian Family of Churches and believers worldwide.

MERF strengthens national churches with ministries of evangelism, church extension, biblical training, and diaconal aid. MERF is engaged in encouraging and strengthening the Church throughout the Middle East, North and East Africa and other Muslim lands.
Reformed Faith & Life // foietviereformees.org
Reformed Faith & Life’s (Foi & Vie Réformées) offices are situated in the city of Pretoria. Once a month we rent a digitally equipped recording studio also in Pretoria, and we record our programmes there. We organize the duplication of our material (audio-tapes and CD’s) by a specialized company in Johannesburg. We then send this material to various stations in Africa, Europe, and America, with a priority in France and in the French-speaking world, with a vision of the reformed world understood within the framework historical and denominational texts symbolic of the 16th century Reformation, such as the so-called “La Rochelle” Confession of Faith. Part of our work is to search for new stations likely to broadcast the messages of “Foi & Vie Réformées.”
