We’re asking the Lord to allow us to transition over the next year into a full time pastors position at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace where we would be part of raising up national pastors and missionaries that will take the Gospel places that would be impossible for western missionaries to go to.
Our prayers and plans include establishing a Pastor’s College in the heart of the Middle East in 2018, to equip men to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to refugees that have been displaced due to the recent unrest in the Middle East.
Our desire is to travel between the Pastor Colleges that Calvary Chapel Saving Grace has already established in south Asia, Asia and Africa and bring in depth Bible teaching and discipleship training to a group of new pastors, to train them up to reach unreached people in their areas.
Between these visits abroad, Gary and Tina are seeking to pour into and disciple a new generation of missionaries right here in southern California while helping the missionary care team at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace reach out and care for close to 65 current missionaries and missionary families.
Finally, our heart is to serve in whatever capacity the Lord has for us to serve in, to meet the needs and stir the body of Calvary Chapel Saving Grace and support the leadership team.
“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38.
Please pray with us to that end.
