We value the critical importance of sharing the Gospel to those in our community as well as throughout the world. Evangelism and the discipleship of new believers was patterned by the Apostle Paul and is an important aspect of local church ministry. It was a direct command from Jesus for the early church to carry the good news to other places.
The scriptural plan of Acts 1:8 is to share Christ at home and abroad. As we seek to implement the plan of reaching the world for Christ, our partnership with missionaries around the globe is one way we are able to fulfill Christ’s command to “teach all nations.”
At The Master’s Bible Church, support for missions is not an afterthought or a minor part of our commitment to follow Christ’s commandment to love thy neighbor. It is a major part of our ministry and proclamation of faith. We support missionaries who are actively spreading the Gospel of grace through Jesus Christ around the world. We encourage our church members to pray for and communicate with our missionaries.
In addition to financial support for global missions, we also challenge our people to get out and serve local ministries. TMBC is a hands-on, helping community, ministering to people within our church and outside its walls. Our commitment to outreach is reflected both in our missions giving and in the time and talent our congregation offers to service in our own neighborhood and beyond.
We support Bob and Mary Ehmann serving Christ in Juneau, Alaska at Echo Ranch Bible Camp. Bob and Mary have been missionaries all of their lives and recently retired to Florida. However, they are still active every summer in Alaska overseeing the camp ministry and bringing the gospel of Christ to a new generation of children.
Marcus and Amie Denny transitioned to the mission field in 2009 and are church planters in Kladno, Czech Republic. They love the church in Kladno dearly, and are thankful for the prayers and support of so many people and churches. Their summer English Camp is the highlight of the ministry year in the Czech Republic, as they partner with believers from supporting churches to reach the Czech people with the gospel of Christ.
Dr. Bill TenHaaf has been traveling to Haiti one week a month since 2003 doing surgery and caring for other medical needs at Centre de Santé Lumière (Lumiere hospital) in Les Cayes, Haiti. He has been training five young Haitian doctors, increasing their medical knowledge, teaching them how to do basic surgeries and working for their certification through the Haitian government.
