2015 Special

2015 Special Contribution

2015 MissionsOur 2015 Special Missions Contribution will be June 7th. This is an exciting time for our church as we participate in supporting our brothers and sisters in Mexico and Central America in their efforts to make disciples! Jesus’ heart is to see as many people as possible saved throughout the world. As a family of churches we have planted over 500 churches all over the world. Thousands of people are getting baptized each year in these churches. This is to fulfill Jesus’ command with Jesus’ heart.

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned…….19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:15-20)

The church in Orange County specifically has taken on the responsibility and the joy of supporting the churches in Mexico and Central America. In 1987 the church in Mexico City was planted with just 13 disciples of Christ. Now, 28 years later, from that single church planting there are 39 churches throughout Mexico and Central America with a membership of close to 10,000.

Each year we take up a collection to help support the work of these 39 churches. 85% of this money goes towards planting new churches, developing and supporting campus ministries in these churches, as well as leadership development. The rest is divided up among administration, fund raising, and program development. We have been support-ing this great work for over twenty years.

This year we have added a new program, the ESL program. The ESL (English as a Second Language) program started about two years ago. This program is in three countries: Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The goal of this program is to be able to teach disciples and their children in our churches English. This will increase their in-come so that they can have a better standard of living, reach the opinion leaders of their communities, and eventually help the churches become self-supporting. There are currently 283 students enrolled in this program. There are 9 teachers, one of which is our very own Ana Cuevas. Once a disciple learns English, their earning potential will double, triple or even quadruple. Walter Kokowski, the director of this program, is scheduled to come to Orange County and speak to the our church May 17 about this great work.

Our goal this year, when you include our weekly contribution, is $236,000.00. Please be making plans to give generously to this great work. Remember that in 1988 the church in Boston took up a Special Missions Contribution that helped plant the church in Los Angeles in 1989. Because of the Los Angeles church planting many of us were able to hear the gospel and become baptized disciples of Jesus. Now it is our turn to return the favor to our future brothers and sisters in Latin America.
