    Eric and Rachel McEachron Operation Mobilization (OM) Phone: (770) 631-0432 Links: ​ 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 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!

    Solomon and Ruby Kendagor International Broadcasting and Discipling Phone: 800-474-4145 Email: Address: International Students, Inc. ​P. O. BOX C Colorado Springs, CO 80901 Birthday: Solomon: September 16 Ruby: February 23 Mission Focus Our Mission focus is in three areas: A. Evangelism. B. Leadership (Both Church and Government). C. Marriage and Family. We accomplish these areas of ministry through: A. Two Radio and TV stations; B. Social Media like Facebook. We are in over 50 countries. Our listeners increased by 502% to 63,781 in the last month according to Facebook. ​ Testimony Solomon's Testimony Solomon came to know Christ at the age of 9 through his parents’ ministry and family devotions. Parents were Kenyan Missionaries who left everything to serve God and live by faith, trusting the Lord for every need. Parents emphasized the importance of personal time with God for everyone in the family. During family devotion everybody was expected to share what he or she learned during personal devotion. Children learned from early age to have personal devotion, pray and trust God for every need. Solomon, however, planned to make money and give as others served the Lord and live by faith. During high school he struggled about God’s will for his life. God made it clear that he was interested in Solomon’s heart not his money. He finally surrendered to God’s purpose and God began to work in his heart. Solomon ended up in full time ministry and continues to serve with joy.​ Ruby's Testimony Abandoned by parents at about a month old, Ruby was raised in an orphanage with close to 500 children. Life was difficult at the orphanage and Ruby longed to know about her parents. When she was 14, a letter from her dad in Canada arrived saying her mother was dead. Ironically, another letter arrived the following day from her mom in Barbados introducing herself to her. Neither of the parents wrote to her again. At age 16 she had to leave the orphanage to work as a maid, first for a Chinese family for a year and a half and later for a Muslim family. The Evangelical Alliance Mission arrived and rented property from the Muslim family. Through their ministry, Ruby came to faith in Christ. She finally met her father at the age of 19 and her mother at the age of 23. Both became believers through her testimony.

    Sunday Discipleship Communities Sunday Discipleship Communities Sundays @ 9:50 AM. Classes run from October 29 – December 17, 202 Registration is now open. FALL 2023 OPPORTUNITIES ​ Paycheck to Paycheck: Examining a Biblical Perspective of Financial Matters. This class will examine developments within the financial world and discuss what the Bible says about money, investments, giving, stewardship, contentment, greed, saving, spending, budgeting, and other relevant topics. Warning: Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, this class may make you uncomfortable and challenge you spiritually. T each er: Steve Williams Just Give me a Sign! Our words and actions represent signs that convey information about who we are, intentions about what we are doing, and expectations about how others should respond to us. Wouldn’t it be great if Jesus would just give us a sign to convey what he thinks is important? The disciple John thought so and, in writing his gospel, he included a collection of seven signs (miracles) that were designed to lead us to believe in Jesus and receive life in Him. This class will examine how each sign stands alone in presenting Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of God, from different perspectives. ​ Teacher: Dan Cheek ​ ​ Is This the End? (Part 2)* Nearly every book of the Bible contains prophetic material, and John tells us that “he who reads aloud… and those that hear” the prophecies in The Revelation to John will be blessed. Within this context, this class will be designed to survey verses that speak about end time prophecies, focusing on Last Things as referenced in GCC’s Doctrinal Guidelines. Signs identified in Scripture will be explored and compared against the signs of our times, and promises to Israel and the Church regarding end time events will be addressed. *This is the second session of a two-part class. ​ Teacher: Ric Kinne and Rod Toro ​ REGISTER Registration is Required!

  • Rezek | GCC

    Emily Rezek Greater Europe Mission (France) Phone: 800 436 4488​ Links: Address: TEAM PO Box 969 Wheaton, IL 60187-0969 Birthday: November 5 Mission Focus Currently the majority of my ministry is at the FEU (Foyer Évangélique Universitaire), a non- denominational Christian association for university students. Here we seek to share the gospel with as many students as possible, as well as to disciple and train believers and to connect them to local churches. A challenge for us is to continue to find creative ways to reach out to the 100,000+ students in Lille! But we’ve seen that the university years are often a time when students are more open spiritually and seeking answers to life’s big questions. Pray for us as we interact with these students, and for their hearts to be receptive to the truth. Testimony My mother first introduced me to Christ and began taking me to church at a young age, where I learned that God created me, loved me, and wanted a relationship with me—but that was impossible because of my sin. The only way to be reconciled to God was through Jesus Christ, God made flesh, who paid my debt on the cross and rose again, defeating sin forever! At age 7, after Vacation Bible School, I made the decision to follow Jesus, and I’ve never regretted it! I know that without Christ in my life, I would be a misguided, self-serving, and unloving sinner. I’ve seen God’s faithfulness to me throughout my life, and every day he continues to teach me new truths about his love and purpose for me. He has given me a new life, and my desire is to use this life to honor him. Previous Mark & Jodi Revell International Field W orker Trainers Next Lee Whitworth Mormon Outreach

    Raymond & LeAnn Cook Bible Translation Phone: 501-294-8768 Email: Address: PO Box 1331 Wheaton, IL 60187 Birthday: Raymond: January 24 LeAnn: January 27 Mission Focus Our focus will be to translate the Bible into the largest unreached unengaged language group in Southeast Asia. They are over 99% Muslim and have no church, no Bible, and we know of only one Christian. Our hope, while translating, is to see the very first church planted among the people and to see many denounce Islam and turn to Christ alone for salvation. We anticipate very rocky and hard soil possibly resulting in rejection of Christianity at some level. However, we believe Revelation 7:9-10 will come to pass and that this particular people group will be represented around the throne of God. We believe and hope that a great number of these people will stand shoulder to shoulder with us and, each in our own language, worship Jesus together saying the same thing: "Salvation belongs to our God who sites on the throne, and to the Lamb!" Testimony Raymond's Testimony: I came to faith at eleven years old at Christian summer camp. I had attended Catholic school until this time as my mother was Catholic. I also attended a Pentecostal church on Sundays as my father was Pentecostal. I remember learning a lot about Jesus and the Bible especially from church and Bible study on Sunday at the Pentecostal church and it all finally made sense when I went to summer camp. I understood a very simple gospel--that I was a sinner and separated from God because of my sin, Jesus was sent to die on my behalf paying the penalty I was due for my sins, he rose from the dead, and I needed to place all my hope and faith in him to be made right with God. I repented and was baptized that summer. Later, as an adult, I felt the call toward full-time cross-cultural missions. LeAnn's Testimony: I grew up Catholic but it never took root. After my youngest sister took her first communion, my parents decided we didn’t need to go church any more. Later, in high school, I was invited to a Bible study. The leader shared the gospel with me and the Lord used that to show me my sins. I went on to St. Charles Community College where I was active in CRU leading lessons and groups to do outreach in Florida. During this time I was mentored by the lady that shared the gospel with me. She was a leader in CRU and recommended I pursue ministry. I was excited to learn more about the Lord, share it with others, and do it as a full-time job. I went to St. Louis Christian College to learn more about God’s Word which grew my love for missions and reaching Muslims.

  • Anna | GCC

    Anna and Elliott Cafe 1040 Phone: 678-745-3662 Email: Address: Cafe' 1040 P.O. Box 110 Alpharetta, GA 30009 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
