Global Mission Partners

Our Partners

Our Global Partners are bringing about holistic restoration in their communities through church planting and responding to specific needs. We serve them by praying, giving financially, and sending teams to help and encourage them. They serve us by being our hands and feet in other countries, sending teams to help and encourage us, and teaching us what God is doing throughout the world.

Our Partnership

We believe that Global Partnership can change us and change the world. When people choose to serve, whether in our church, in our city, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.

joanachapa“”Porque ellos vinieron, nosotros conocemos al Señor (because they came, we know the Lord)” is a phrase that I grew up hearing from my Grandma Lupita as she would share of how grateful she will forever be for the missionaries that went to south Texas to bring the Good News to people like her.

I grew up hearing of how someone’s obedience to Jesus’ call on their lives impacts individuals, which transforms families for generations to come and then in turn transforms the communities around them. Over the course of the past 15 years, God has given me opportunities to see him at work in countries like Japan, Canada, India, Thailand, Mexico and Peru and I have learned that there is no way that I will not jump on board when Jesus invites me to “come” to a place and join him. I have committed to coming alongside the established MB conference of churches in Perú with leadership support in discipleship strategies and the training and equipping of young leaders in a variety of ways. My desire is to help train and equip the local church leaders to be disciples that make disciples, that call their churches and families to a deeper intimacy with their Creator and to be missional wherever the Lord invites them. I look forward to seeing my two deepest passions of discipleship and worship strengthen and expand the kingdom of God in Peru and in turn, to the nations.
