We wish to highlight different areas where our church is active in an aspect of missions or local outreach ministry. Some of these include:
James and Hannah Nilsen lead the Neighborhood Academy, a small, Christian, inner city school within their church, Neighborhood Fellowship in Indianapolis.
Samuel Hailemariam is the pastor of Indianapolis Grace Ethiopian Church which seeks to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ for Ethiopian and Eritrean immigrants in Indianapolis area. They also have a mission program in Ethiopia which focuses on four key areas: Training pastors, translating theological books, working to assist local hospitals and orphanages, and assisting local churches in their effort of accomplishing the great commission.
Ken & Tina Larson are Associate Field Directors for the Navigators and help bring leadership, focus, and alignment to all their field ministries. They supervise various Mission Directors, City Directors, and Ethnic Network Directors and serve on a Field Director Team of eight who bring leadership to the whole field.
Andy Foland is the Regional Director of the state of Indiana for Ratio Christi, a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ.
Wheeler Mission Ministries is located in Downtown Indianapolis and is one of the oldest shelter and outreach ministries in the city. They serve the local community in multiple ways with a biblical foundation in leadership, compassion and discipleship. Our church has partnered with Wheeler by allowing them to place a donation barn behind the church building. It is open for donations 24/7, but they ask that donations are not given beyond what will fit in the barn. Donations that are left outside the barn or in the parking lot may become damaged or unusable.
Mission Team Leaders:
We also wish to bring your attention to other ministries that our church has come to value in their service to the local and global Church. Some of these include:
