Announcing the World Mission matching challenge for Spring 2021

Every day, mission co-workers like Cathy Chang and Juan Lopez Carrasco in the Philippines work to share the Word of God and the peace of Christ in some of the most troubled and desperate places on the planet.

And when you make your gift by Easter Sunday, April 4, you will double its life-changing impact thanks to a special group of our committed donors who has pledged to match all gifts for mission personnel support, up to $44,760. Thank you for your support of all our mission co-workers as, powered by your caring support, we live into being a Matthew 25 denomination.
