Global Missions

As a church, we are LOOKING to follow the great commission in our community and wherever God leads. Jesus instructs us in Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Our church strategy is to look for and participate in both local and across the borders missions which are specifically evangelistic in nature that we will participate with both physically and financially.



Pastor Esperanza is truly the hands and feet of Jesus in her small village located in the Dominican Republic. She works with kids to provide them an education while focusing on sharing God’s word to the kids and village. A group from First Reformed Church went to the Dominican Republic on a mission trip in July of 2018, listening to her testimony and spending time with the kids who lack basics such as food, water, clothing, and shelter. We help provide financial assistance to her mission for the kids to have a daily meal.



My name is Simon and I was born in the Maasai Villages in Kajiado Ewuaso Kedog, Kenya. As the son of a prominent leader advisor for the Chief of our village, I am one of 12 siblings and the first of my large family to go to school. I grew up watching my father help people, and whenever someone was healed they would bring our family a sheep, but out of humility my father never took any. And because of that, we grew up very poor. Something grew out of my heart after I saw my father’s service to people, and I became very compassionate towards the needs of others. I am married to Agnes and we have 7 children, 2 girls and 5 boys. We also have 3 girls from different communities in Kenya that live with us after looking for schooling. My Christian life started when I was arrested for cattle wrestling from other communities that are not Maasai, and in prison is where I received my salvation. After coming back to our village, I started attending Bible school and from there I began to plant churches. As we speak now, I have helped plant almost 100 churches with over 8,000 members. The Maasai Land is the most growing ministry area.

Hello church family! I am the granddaughter of Larry and Marie Heinen. My parents are Jim and Nancy (Heinen) TeBeest. I’m the middle child with 2 brothers. I love my little nephews and soak up every time I get to see them. Time with my family is so special to me.

I currently work with Athletes in Action. We work with athletes to help them grow in an integral way – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We work with your everyday gym goers as well as professional athletes. We desire people to discover and live out their natural design. We help athletes through mentoring and coaching materials. In our women’s workout community, we also offer nutrition and physical fitness help. It’s exciting to help people see sport/fitness as worship to God!



Remember Nhu is a nonprofit committed to ending child sex slavery through prevention: One child at a time, one family at a time, one village at a time. Prevention is the most effective way to keep children safe and end child sex slavery. They identify those children who are at risk of falling prey to the sex trade and provide them with a home in which their physical, educational, emotional and spiritual needs are met. By creating a supportive environment for each of these children, they are ensuring a childhood free from sex slavery and also dramatically lowering their risk of joining the sex trade later in life.
