MISSIONS MINISTRY


North Orange Christian Church is committed to being a part of fulfilling the commission Jesus gave us to make disciples of all nations! We believe this is done both at home and abroad. To bring this about, NOCC supports missions both at home and abroad in a number of ways:

Direct missionary support: We financially support numerous missionaries around the world.
Personal support: In additional to financial support, we attempt to provide personal support to missionaries including prayer, encouragement, emails, etc.
Support of indigenous efforts: Several of the missionaries we support are committed to training and facilitating the ministries of nationals in their own countries. This is seen as a high priority for NOCC, because it provides a much more effective use of our funds, and recognizes the fact that people are usually more capable of reaching their own country than "outsiders" are.
Short term missions: We provide support and encouragement to missionaries on the field through short term mission teams. These teams also provide an opportunity for concrete (sometimes literally!) efforts at showing love in practical ways such as teaching, building and providing supplies to people in other countries. The most obvious effect of these efforts is to increase our awareness of the need to fulfill Christ's commission, and our commitment to doing so!

AMOR MINISTRIES


Our Legacy of Hope
Since 1980, Amor's mission has remained the same. God has called us to build his Church. We do that by responding to the spiritual and physical poverty in the world by empowering groups and individuals to participate in an Amor Mission Trip, a house building mission trip.

As we carry out this mission, we realize that building a house doesn't just provide shelter. It's a step toward Jesus and obedience to the one thing he asked us to build. HIS CHURCH.

Our Vision
Our very name means love. We choose to show God's love through simple, tangible acts of service. Amor demonstrates to the poor the same grace we have all received through Jesus. Our mission statement is:

Amor brings people together to provide transformative experiences that manifest the justice, kindness, and humility of Jesus Christ.

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT: 
Since 1980, AMOR's mission has remained the same. God has called us to build his Church, and we do that by responding to the spiritual and physical poverty in the world. Our very name means love. We choose to show God's love through simple, tangible acts of service. AMOR demonstrates to the poor the same grace we all received through Jesus. We are committed to be like Christ as we provide educational and mission experiences that radically change people, eradicate spiritual and physical poverty, and impact the future of the church. As we carry out this mission, we realize that building a house isn't just providing shelter. It's a step toward Jesus and obedience to the one thing he asked us to build: HIS CHURCH.

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES: 
Scott and Gayla, along with a full-time AMOR team, carry out their commitment and passion for helping the poorest of the poor in Mexico. They mobilize volunteers and work with local churches in the U.S. and Mexico to respond to the physical and spiritual poverty in Mexico. Presently, opportunities are now opening up for the building of houses in South Africa.

VICTORIES:
Our ministry is effective because of our highly interactive partnerships with pastors of local churches in Mexico, trip coordinators, and our National Advisory Board. We all share a common vision and purpose for building God's kingdom.

Our essential partners brainstorm, collaborate, implement and pray with AMOR over each area of the ministry. This allows AMOR to continually learn and grow. The result: we are able to effectively serve the individuals and families we come in contact with each day.

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT: 
Provide educational and mission experiences that radically change people
Eradicate spiritual and physical poverty
Impact the future of the Church 

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES AND PROGRESS: 
Steve Horrex serving with Amor for the past 35 years
VP of Global Development
Serving with Amor, as VP of Global Development, I’m responsible for both our current international development projects and the research and develop of our future Global projects, as God leads us to go and serve throughout the world.

We are currently serving fulltime in Mexico and South Africa and we are in the preliminary stages of investigating partnerships with like-minded ministries, serving those in need in Kenya, Albania, Kosovo, Moldova, and East Timor.

Two programs currently have my full attention. The first is known as Cienega, located on the Yucatan Peninsula in Southern Mexico. Cienega is being constructed as a training facility for missionaries and pastors to better equip them in preparation to go and serve throughout the world. I’ve been asked to lead the work on building a facility. This project has been gaining interest over the years through our Global Gathering conferences where attendees are primarily young adults. Their desire is to ensure we fulfill the Great Commission to go and make disciples and I am sincerely appreciative to be part of this work.

The other major program that takes a good portion of my time is directing our ministry in South Africa. With the great support of our newly established South African Board of Directors and our staff there, our goal is to be 100% financially supported and staffed by South Africans by 2018. Amor’s role will then change to partner and we will support the new team and serve together following God’s leading for the future.

I also oversee a program called the Amor Commissioneers which is the coordination and mobilization of skilled architects and engineers located all over the world who love Amor and are willing to volunteer their skills to further the ministry.  So, as God leads us into new countries and new partnerships, these committed volunteers, regardless of where we go, are ready to serve by helping us put our best foot forward in every condition with skilled planning and design. In every new situation, we must consider cultural design, availability of materials, cost and the training of locals.

And finally, when needed, I act as the official represent for Amor in the different countries we serve, to share our story and convey how Amor feels called to serve the poorest of the poor throughout the world with the highest level of integrity.

VICTORIES: 
Over the past few years the Mayors and the City Council Members of each of the cities we serve in have opened their city’s doors to our ministry. One of the biggest blessings has been the new camp properties that have been provided by the different cities free of charge. And when we request that they would also develop them for us, they have always done whatever they could to help get them ready for our volunteers.

As we carry out this mission, we realize that building a house isn’t just providing shelter. It’s a step toward Jesus and obedience to the one thing he asked us to build: HIS CHURCH. 

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES: 
I have had a number of responsibilities in the nearly 20 years I have worked with AMOR. Currently, I do all the data entry of the individuals who participate in a mission trip to build houses in Mexico. Last year that amounted to over 23,000 people. In the future, we hope to have each group do their own online entry for each individual going on the trip. Their doing so would probably eliminate the need for much of what I am presently doing. In preparation for that, talks have already begun about a new role for me within the organization. I’m excited about that and am looking forward to what God has planned for me in my future with AMOR.

VICTORIES: 
Over the years I’ve had the privilege of watching this ministry grow from a handful of people in a small office on the campus of Pacific Christian College to a staff of 45 in a large industrial building in San Diego with a field office in El Paso, TX. I’ve experienced first hand watching what can happen when people truly seek God before stepping out in faith.

I currently serve as the Vice President of Outreach and Training and Chris serves in the Training Dept. I also serve as the National Coordinator for Kairos, USA. The Kairos course is a study of the “Purpose and Plan of God from Genesis to the end of the Age!” The goal of the course is the formation of truly biblical world-view and the mobilization of the church into strategic cross-cultural mission.

Currently there are 2 billion people who have NEVER heard of the love and grace of Jesus. They generally live in “creative access” countries that don’t allow missionaries. We’re working to enter these areas and start 80 Church Planting Movements by 2015--we covet your prayers! Team Expansion family currently consists of more than 350 full-time adult workers serving in 46 countries in 70 distinct church planting projects.

VICTORIES: 
60 churches were planted in 2013. 920 believers were baptized into Christ, and Church Mission Attendance is up to 16,821.

In Venezuela:
There are now 15 churches planted with over 2,000 in average attendance. Over 2,000 have been baptized in the last 10 years! Venezuela has grown from 0.7% to over 10% evangelical!

GOALS:
Team Expansion is working to establish 80 Church Planting Movements among the unreached by 2015. To work towards that goal they will work to plant 100 churches in 2014, and see 1,000 followers baptized in Christ. They will continue to launch training programs, and train 30 missionaries.

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT: 
To reach the world for Jesus through planting new churches in every country of the world.

VISION STATEMENT:
“Equipping leaders to plant 5 million dynamic churches to reach the world for Christ”

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES:
About a year ago, God called me to change my role as Vice President of Training to accept the position of Executive Vice President for Dynamic Church Planting International. With God’s help, I am now leading all our Global Mission department teams to set and accomplish our annual enterprise goals.

VICTORIES: 
To Christ be the glory! DCPI has trained over 41,000 Christian leaders to start new churches in 91 countries, and last year alone, in 2016, we saw over 31,000 leaders trained in 59 various countries. After completing 4 research projects the findings indicate that the leaders we have trained will start over 100,000 new churches! We stand before God amazed and humbled at what he is doing! Go to dcpi.org and church out some of the video reports of what God is doing. One of the greatest victories is the love and support of those God has moved to partner with us, especially NOCC. Our partnership in the gospel is one way God is blessing the world with the love of Christ.

GOALS:
2016 ENTERPRISE GOALS:
29,000 leaders trained, 2,900 certified leaders 10 new countries

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT:
We are so privileged to be able to serve alongside our NOCC family. Even though it has been some years since we were serving right beside you, we think of ourselves as an extension of the local body, just doing different things for the same Cause - Christ's glory!

Our team's ministry in media is focused on this Vision and Mission:

At 10X Productions, we see people from all cultures experiencing life-change in Christ through the influence of visual media.

MISSION:
We are visual storytellers who specialize in telling cross-cultural, spiritual stories and empowering emerging visual storytellers in other cultures. Partnering with missionaries, national churches, and media outlets, we develop innovative access to the Gospel by producing creative content and training others to use media to reach people in their culture.

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the Team Leader for 10X Productions, Tom is responsible for setting vision and guiding our team’s projects. Tom travels overseas for special projects like training in short film production and long-term collaboration with other partner ministries and networks. For the past five years we have been working to raise up a generation of young believers the most unreached Muslim nation in the world. We teach workshops in media production and strategy so they are able to tell visual stories to evangelize their own people. Over the course of this project, we have seen a number of church communities develop their own teams and media resources like short films, music videos, and social media spots. This is strategic because Churches and Christian workers have been increasingly under pressure and many workers have been kicked out by the government. If we are no longer able to travel there, we are confident that we have been developing strong leaders who can do the work themselves in the future. Tom spends a lot of time on-line! Rather than traveling as much as he did in the past, he has been developing online courses to train workers all over the world in media strategies to support church planting. He developed a five-week course that has been full every time we've offered it and is influencing many large mission agencies in their media work.

VICTORIES:
We've had students from 25+ countries in the course. Tom has recently been working with a team in North Africa to create a strategy and media tools like short films and contextual Bible stories to encourage people to gather in groups to read the Bible. This is the foundation of networks of small, reproducing churches in the country. Later this year, he's starting a Media Strategy Lab to work with teams in other countries to help them with projects beyond the basic course he teaches.

Our ministry seems to constantly grow and change, but the vision is the same - God's glory known among the nations. Media is a key tool that God is using. We're so grateful to our North Orange family for being a part of our team.

For security reasons, we do not post newsletter updates from this mission. If you would like current information, please contact Bob Maclean at (408) 230-6424 or email mackurus@yahoo.com

 

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT: 
We are working to develop a group or network of mutually supportive churches who are self-reliant spiritually, economically and emotionally. A concise statement would be in planting and nurturing commitment to Jesus Christ in the hearts of Indonesians, and teaching them to become mature, independent adult Christians who by the purity of their lives, reliance on God alone, and verbal testimony show the light of evangelism to their world. Our theme scripture is every phrase of Matthew 28:19-20. 

CURRENT RESPONSIBILITIES: 
At present we are writing and publishing seven workbooks for “Rencana Penebusan”. two of the seven are finished, and are ready to go to the press.

RECENT EVENTS:
We are just finishing the printing of our six workbook series on “The Scheme of Redemption" (Rencana Penebusan). Our ministry will use these in the village evangelism program that we and our co-workers are pursuing. We are also working together to develop one or two new foundations to sponsor the publishing ministry, a village evangelism program that includes extension courses for college credit and a social welfare program. We will again sponsor several HIV/Hope seminars. We are tentatively scheduling seminars in Salatiga, Surabaya, and West Java in the fall. At least one will be taught by an Indonesian national assisted by Duane Crumb HIV/Hope director. Finally, we are attempting to establish new, small Bible studies in West Java led by church members.

VICTORIES
In 2010, DCPI trained 639 Christian leaders in Asia to plant churches. Based on follow-up research of DCPI trainees, by 2015 those leaders may be expected to have planted 1,744 new churches and brought 81,466 people to Christ!

TCI Outreach to Soldiers in Crimea
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGGr9AVEDck

 

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT:
We think that today a Christian leader needs serious preparation in order to become an effective minister. Such preparation can be accomplished only through systematic education. Therefore, Tavriski Christian Institute’s activities are aimed at providing the local churches of Ukraine and other former USSR republics with well-educated and spiritually mature ministers, who are aware of the important role of education and are capable of developing this training in their congregations.

TCI strives to meet the needs of the churches by developing the programs and forms of teaching for people of different ages, backgrounds, and ministry experiences. We aim at creating necessary conditions for the academic, practical and spiritual formation and growth of students and helping them discover their gifts in order to become useful for the Church and God’s Kingdom.

CURRENT SERVICES: 
Currently, Tavriski Christian Institute hosts more than 120 students of 5 different evangelical denominations. TCI is a big Christian family that consists of people of different ages, temperaments, backgrounds, and main interests. However, they all are bonded together by the common goal of serving Christ. Some of the students are pastors and missionaries, leaders of various ministries, the others are simply young people who have made a decision to commit their whole lives to God and feel the need to be well-equipped for his work.

VICTORIES: 
Today TCI is living proof that an interdenominational partnership of Christians is possible. It is also a convincing argument to support the idea of the importance of the education for the church leaders. TCI is not just another educational institution of local significance. The majority of our students come from Kherson, Nikolaev, Sumy, Kharkov, Dniepropetrovsk, Zaporozhie, Karakalpakia, faraway Siberia, and Russia.

Click here for their March 2017 update!

MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT:
Our vision is to serve God through serving the needy children of Mexico - children who come to us from broken homes or from no home at all, and who have learned to make a life for themselves on the streets. Through City of Refuge Children’s Home, we are able to provide a loving family environment for children who have seen and experienced abuse, neglect and extreme poverty.

CHALLENGES: 
We would like to provide more training for the staff since we are seeing more psychological and spiritual damage in the children who arrive at the home. We want to be able to serve them better. Also with such a large number of new staff, we need to work on creating deeper love bonds and carving out times for fellowship among us. This will help us to be more united in our work and ministry to the children.

VICTORIES: 
God has made my dream of a bigger home, where children can run freely, a reality. Our young people who have been raised with us are now preaching and involved in praise bands. Over the last 44 years, the staff has seen many miracles. What a job it is to see the smile of a child who once was hungry and now is fed, who once was cold and now is warm, who once was abused, and now is loved.

VICTORIES: 
God has been at work in this ministry! Praise God for blessing the church in Montefiascone with a small youth group program and motivating most members in the church to be in a weekly small group Bible study. This church plant has been blessed to see Italians come to Christ and be baptized, as well as organizing a national Leadership Training Program for church leaders throughout Italy.
