Penn Valley Church is committed to Missions. You're invited to join us in this commitment. Our Missions Committee meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7PM in the Telford Campus Coffee House.
Penn Valley Church strives to follow Acts 1:8b "…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." In following this example, we have placed our current missions ministries into this model.
Camp Conquest is the FGBC district’s camping/retreat center and continues to make a positive impact in the lives of many people teaching them about God and his Word, in a fun interactive way.
North Atlantic Missions is our FGBC district mission board which seeks to encourage and support new churches in our region financially as well as with assessment tools and networking opportunities.
GO2 Ministries, currently directed by Pastor Tim and headquartered in the Telford Campus, seeks to EQUIP, EVANGELIZE and ENGAGE. GO2's vision is to see: 5,000 new churches started and their leaders established in the U.S., 500,000 new believers saved and equipped for ministry, and 50 million Americans served and engaged in mission by the year 2020.
Steve Galegor, Jr. works with the Albanians both in New York City and in Albania. He is a member of our church and would love to hear from you and answer any questions you would have about how God has been working in establishing churches (believers) in his field.
Urban Hope This is another fantastic ministry that is spreading the gospel to those in need of Christ in Northeast Philadelphia. There are many opportunities to help out in various service projects throughout the year.
ENDS OF THE EARTH
Encompass World Partners continues to be the cross-cultural ministries arm of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. If you would like more information about our name change from GBIM, please visit here:
Dave & Sue Griffith - Dave and Sue are back in France, continuing to cultivate relationships with the people of France and encouraging them to get into relationship with God.
Tim & Julie Hawkins – Tim & Julie are ministering to the people of Portugal.
Paul & Louise Klawitter – Paul heads up the European Team and is kept very busy with all that comes with this oversight. Their focus in France is spreading the gospel through the establishing of churches with French leadership.
Barb Wooler - Barb continues to see God’s hand at work through the Pygmie ministry as well as the Project Hope and Charite Orphan Care Center later this year. Many of our church members support this ministry by sponsoring children. It is a great way to reach the ends of the earth! Barb is also an integral part of the staff.
Aside from our budgeted support to these missionaries, we continue to encourage personal Faith Promise Giving. Consider asking the Lord if he would have you pledge an amount towards the annual support needs of a missionary. Then trust God to meet that commitment and enjoy being a part of ministry in a place where you never thought you could help.
Please visit www.encompassworldpartners.org to obtain lots more information on all of these missionaries and more. It is exciting to see what God is doing….all over the world…..and He has given us the privilege to be a part of it!
We also support CE National, which provides many resources for "the church," including Momentum, our national Youth Conference, which is a highlight for teens each year.
