  • Irwin | GCC

    Doug and Emilee Irwin Greater Europe Mission Phone: 800-436-4488 Website: gemission.org Address: Greater Europe Mission (GEM) ​​18950 Base Camp Road Monument, CO 80132 Birthday: Doug: December 23 Emilee: April 16 Graham: December 21 Maeve: July 21 Mission Focus We are grateful to be a part of a new church plant in Paris. Doug is one of the teaching pastors (with his French partner – Guillaume Bourin) at Église de la Rive Droite (Church of the Right Bank) in southeast Paris. We are currently working with our core team and are looking to open our doors in December 2022/January 2023. Emilee is serving as the Arts Impact Zone leader for GEM missionaries throughout Europe, helping them to make disciples and grow Christ’s church through their unique gifts and friend groups. It is a major blessing to be working with such a dedicated core team. Pray that our young church will continue to glorify God in word and in deed. Testimony Doug's Testimony I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. My dad was raised in a practicing Roman Catholic family, while my mom grew up in an Episcopal church. They both stopped going to church in college. When I was 16, my younger brother, Jeff, began attending a Wednesday night youth group rally at the invitation of his friend, where he prayed to receive Christ. The church reached out to my family and came to our home to share the gospel with the rest of us. My parents and younger twin brothers prayed to receive Christ then, but I was skeptical. Several times over the next few months, a college student from the church came over to play basketball and share the gospel with me. I began to see that my sin was great and that I had no ultimate purpose in my life. I asked for God’s forgiveness and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I had a wonderful youth pastor who discipled me very quickly. I attended a youth camp called Discipleship Now where I experienced a special call to ministry. God led me to continue to pursue this calling and to study the scriptures at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO, where Emilee and I met. After college, we went to Fort Worth, TX, to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Emilee and I sensed a call from the Lord to serve on two short-term teams in 2013 and 2014 to Lille to help Leroy and Debbie Zumack, and since then have felt God leading us long term to serve on a church-planting team in Paris.​ Emilee's Testimony I was blessed to grow up in a loving Christian home. My parents taught me about Christ’s love from the beginning. I prayed to receive Christ with my mom at home when I was 6. I grew up singing in church and knowing that Jesus died for my sins, but I had a time of real spiritual growth and renewed commitment to living a surrendered life to him the year before I entered college at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO. Doug and I met my freshman year at SBU and were married before my senior year. Doug’s call to ministry was echoed in my life and we have been involved with several ministries, many of them church plants, through the years. We have both felt a call to serve in France as part of a church planting team.​God’s not finished with me yet, as I am learning every day what a completely surrendered life is like, but he has shown me that his plans for me are good and that his love for me is greater than I could fathom!

  • Kimball | GCC

    Paul and Angie Kimball Proclaim Aviation/School of Missionary Aviation Technology Phone: 507-376-9480 Links: info@proclaimaviation.org proclaimaviation.org smat.edu Proclaim Aviation P.O. Box 356 Worthington, MN 56187 Birthday: Paul: June 18 Angie: August 31 John: May 19 ​Ellie: June 24 Mission Focus Our mission is to be a part of reaching the nations with the gospel of Christ by training the next generation of mission aviators. As full-time missionaries with Proclaim Aviation assigned to SMAT in Ionia, Michigan, we get to be a part of equipping families to share the love of Jesus in remote areas of the world where aviation provides access to medical care, transportation, and the gospel. One of the biggest blessings is getting to know the students and their families, encouraging them in their technical training, but also seeking to mentor and support them personally and spiritually during their time here. We regularly invite students over to our home for dinner and fellowship, and Angie also gets to know the women students and student wives in her role helping to lead a bimonthly women's Bible study. ​ Paul served as a flight instructor, teaching ground school and giving instruction in the airplane, from June 2018-December 2021. In January 2022, he was asked to temporarily fill in as SMAT's maintenance manager, after our Director of Maintenance left unexpectedly. Since that time, he has continued in that role, overseeing SMAT graduates who have been hired as mechanics to maintain our eight flight training aircraft as well as customer aircraft. This time in the hangar provides valuable experience for SMAT graduates as they prepare to serve a mission organization as a mechanics. ​ We continue to pray that God will bring a Director of Maintenance and other needed staff, and for Him to give wisdom for how Paul could engage again in the flight department. Testimony Paul's Testimony I grew up in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where my parents ministered among the Loko people and completed a New Testament translation for them. Having been raised in a Christian home, I heard the Gospel and watched it being lived out in my parents’ lives from the time of my earliest memories. I cannot pinpoint the specific time I came to saving faith in Christ, but I do remember clearly understanding my need for a personal relationship with the Lord and for forgiveness of sin, when I was nine, one evening after family devotions in Sierra Leone. At 12 years old, at a missions conference in Illinois, I committed to serve the Lord wherever and in whatever way He led. In my senior year of high school I learned about the need for aviation in missions. The Lord provided in a wonderful way and allowed me to attend Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and graduate as a pilot and aircraft mechanic from Moody’s aviation program, then located in eastern Tennessee. During my time in Tennessee the Lord brought Angie and I together. Loving and serving the Lord together with her has been the greatest joy of my life. Angie's Testimony I grew up in a small town in Iowa with wonderful parents and one older sister. We were active in church, and I remember asking Jesus into my heart around age 10. I didn’t tell anyone, but read my Bible more and tried very hard to be good. In college, God used some foolish choices and a Christian roommate to show me that I was trying to follow God with one foot and keep my other foot in the world. He opened my eyes to my sin and need for forgiveness, and the grace He offered, not because of what I’d done, but because of what Christ had done for me. It was a turning point in my life, and it’s amazing to see that I have yet to stop learning more about the depths of His mercy and love. That next year, I began looking into teaching overseas (I was getting my elementary education degree). When I met Paul and found out he was studying to become a missionary pilot, I was fascinated – with the man and with missions! – and worked to find out more about what he was wanting to do. It was easy for me to join him in pursuing missions as our life work, and it has been a privilege to use the gifts and interests He’s given us to help people know the truth of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

  • Anna | GCC

    Anna and Elliott Cafe 1040 Phone: 678-745-3662 Mission Website cafe1040.com Address (DONATIONS): Cafe' 1040 P.O. Box 110 Alpharetta, GA 30009 Address (PHYSICAL): Cafe' 1040 1431 Capital Avenue Suite 117 Watkinsville, GA 30677 Birthday: Anna: April 6 Mission Focus My ministry focus is to empower and equip students and young adults in pursuing God's guidance in global missions by coaching them through next steps and providing them with resources to pursue international opportunities in unreached areas of the world (through my organization or one of our partner organizations). ​ I am blessed to have a strong community in St. Louis to support me. A challenge in my work will be to build a network in the Midwest, because I am the only mobilizer within my organization in this area, but I am excited for the challenge and opportunity to serve God in this capacity. Testimony I grew up going to Grace Community Chapel and was involved in children's ministry and youth group through high school. Grace helped to build a foundation for my faith. However, it wasn't until college that I fully began to take my faith as my own and explore God's global purpose for us. I pursued international ministry opportunities in Honduras, Peru, Dominican Republic, and South Asia. These experiences showed me the true heart of God for His people. He truly desires relationship and love with all peoples. Seeing an area of the world with little to no access to the story of Jesus broke my heart and stirred a desire to play a role in that. I pursued a job as a mobilizer in order to help others pursue these passions and share my experiences with them. I also hope to pursue living overseas in an unreached area in the future, but am following God's leading. Next Jabe & Elena Barker Philippine Schools

  • SHARING JESUS | GCC

    Sharing Jesus {without freaking out} The Sharing Jesus Workshop Does sharing your faith seem intimidating? Like there’s too much to remember and so much pressure to get it just right? Do you feel a huge responsibility to share your faith with others, yet feel guilty for rarely, if ever, actually doing it? If you’re like most Christians, then your answer to one or most of these questions would probably be yes. In this seasonal workshop, we will take time each week to learn and practice simple strategies for sharing Jesus with our lost friends, neighbors, and acquaintances in a judgement and shame-free setting. This class will be a launching pad for upcoming outreach activities here at Grace, so be on the lookout for the next workshop in the Fall! The Outreach Path Step 1: Get Trained Step 2: Get Involved Step 3: Learn More, Train Others Step 4: Take Initiative Each Spring and Fall semester we offer the Sharing Jesus Workshop for those who are looking to enhance their evangelical skills. These interactive workshops help prepare you for the real focus of Step 2. Throughout the year we have several events for various purposes here at GCC. Many of these events include opportunities to share your faith with people in our community, while we simultaneously serve them through physical, or "felt," needs. The Sharing Jesus Workshops can be easily reproduced and expanded upon. We will be offering more intensive workshops led by members of our congregation in the coming days, so keep an eye out for when these become available. Become a leader of a workshop or service event! We're all about equipping people who equip people, and we would love for that to be you! WHAT HAS GCC DONE LATELY? Check out this short video to see what we've been doing lately in St. Charles County!

  • McEachron | GCC

    Eric and Rachel McEachron Operation Mobilization (OM) Phone: (770) 631-0432 Links: info.us@om.org omusa.org internships.omusa.org ​scatterglobal.com Operation Mobilization (OM) 285 Lynnwood Ave. Tyrone, GA 30290 Birthday: Eric: July 17 Rachel: August 3 ​Micah - May 21 Sophie - May 1 Emi - February 5 Marcie - January 15 Silas - September 29 Mission Focus Our mission focus is the least-reached – the 3 billion people who have never heard the story of God’s love, and probably have never even met a follower of Jesus. We believe that God is calling a new wave of missionaries: ordinary believers of all professions taking their jobs to live and work in these places where Jesus is not worshipped. My role (Eric) is sharing this vision with university students (tomorrow’s workforce) and offering them an introduction to this work-as-mission lifestyle through professional internships. • A blessing in our work: I love all of it…seeing individual students’ skills and majors matched with great opportunities, networking with professors, problem-solving with teammates, and sharing with our partners (like Grace Community Chapel!). An extra blessing is Rachel connecting with the Japanese community in Atlanta through our church here. • A challenge: Staying connected with, and adapting to the ever-changing realities of, our universities and our receiving teams. ​ Testimony Eric's Testimony I had the immense privilege knowing about Jesus Christ from an early age--however, I saw obedience my means to get attention and prove that I was better than others. I realized that I had a problem when I learned (in a GCC Sunday School class) that God can see every hidden thing inside of us; I knew I could not change myself or make myself good enough in the eyes of a God who sees all of me. But that’s when it connected for me that Jesus, who lived in perfect obedience to God from the inside out, died in my place and rose from the dead; I asked him to make me clean before God, and began to follow him with my life. My heart for Christ was cultivated in GCC ministries and became directed toward missions through an international internship in college. I ended up moving to Japan to work as an English teacher, where I was mentored in missions by Jon Junker, got a crash course in cross-cultural living, and met my wife Rachel. Our years in Japan gave us a burden for the unreached, a vision for the role of professionals in mission, and confirmation of how formative the college and young professional years are.​​ Rachel's Testimony I came to personal faith in Christ when I was seven years old. After morning devotions with my mom, I realized that my sin would keep me separated from God forever. I knew I needed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His forgiveness. I grew up in a Bible church and had heard the Gospel many times, but that was the first time I truly understood my need. When I was ten years old, my parents took our family on a missions trip to work with Jon Junker in Japan. This was a turning point in my life. I knew that I wanted to be back in missions to share the hope of Christ with others in the future. When I was in junior high, I really began to make my faith my own and started growing. I studied cross-cultural ministry at Moody Bible Institute. Internships solidified my desire to teach English to speakers of other languages. That’s how God opened the door for me work as an English teacher in Japan for four years. My primary role now is discipling our four children. And God has continued to provide ways for me to teach English and even be part of a ministry to local Japanese ladies. That really energizes me!
