  • Bennett | GCC

    Ron and Mary Bennett Serving with The Navigators Phone: ​719-598-1212 Website: navigators.org Address: The Navigators 3820N 30th Colorado Springs, CO 80934 Birthday: Ron: September 23 Mary: March 7 Mission Focus The Navigator Calling is to advance the gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations through spiritual generations of laborers living and discipling among the lost. Navigator motto: Know Christ and make Him known ​Our personal mission statement is to develop and coach disciples who make disciples. ​ Our greatest blessing is to see generations of disciples living as ambassadors in their world. The challenge is finding and developing disciples who are willing and able to pass on their lives to a new generation. Ron mentors and shepherds a network of disciplemakers and disciplemaking leaders across the country. Many of the men lead disciplemaking ministries of their own. He also speaks at men’s retreats. Testimony Ron's Testimony I came to faith in Christ through the influence of my church and parents. I was discipled and mentored while studying at Iowa State University in the 1960s. I learned how to walk with Christ and share Him with others. I became infected with the vision of the Great Commission carried out by ordinary people in the marketplace. In 1970, I was invited to join Navigators and develop disciple-making ministries among university students. That was the beginning of over 50 years with Navigators in various leadership roles focused on our calling. ​ Mary's Testimony I was raised in a solid Christian church and home. But in high school, I finally understood the gospel and put my faith in Christ. As a student at Western Michigan University, I became involved with Navigators and was mentored to follow Christ wholeheartedly. I also caught the vision of making disciples who would make disciples. After marriage, I continued to disciple women alongside Ron and his ministry. Previous Jabe & Elena Barker Philippine Schools Next Scott & Jayne Cuidon Global Missionary Counseling

  • Zumack | GCC

    Leroy and Deborah Zumack Greater Europe Mission (France) Phone: +1 800 436 4488 Website: info@gemission.com gemission.org Address: Greater Europe Mission PO Box 5224 Wheaton, Illinois 60189 Birthday: Leroy: January 27 Debbie: November 10 Mission Focus Our mission focus is a prison in St Omer. There I distribute Bibles in different languages, explain the Gospel in French and English, counsel pray and hold a monthly service. We also do follow-up of those that leave prison. We try to go to England or the Netherlands yearly to see ex-prisoners. My desire is to see the men become disciples not only converts. In our local church, I preach, and we lead a house group. Testimony Leroy's Testimony I heard the Gospel growing up in a Lutheran school and church. When I was 18, my parents divorced and this left me asking God, "Where are you?". I met Jesus in September, 1972, in a coffeehouse. My life was turned upside down. I sought to grow in my Christian life. I got involved with CRU. I witnessed to friends and as I neared graduation, I sought to be a missionary pilot. I did not have the skills to be a missionary mechanic so I instead went to Moody for a year and then seminary. I served at Hope Church from 1982-1985. We came to France and started in church planting. Since moving to Lille in 2004, I started prison work. Debbie's Testimony During my teenage years, I began wanting to know more about God. Our family attended church fairly regularly but faith was not explained as a personal relationship with Christ. So when I went off to university, one of the first things I did was buy myself a Bible. Then I became good friends and roommates with a young woman who was a new believer herself. As she explained her testimony to me, I realized that just believing God existed was not enough. I remember feeling like I was standing outside a room I had thought I was in, and what I wanted to do was open the door to that room and really enter in. A few years later as I sought further ways to serve the Lord, I met Leroy and together the Lord directed us to missions in France!

  • K McEachron | GCC

    Kyle McEachron International Christian School of Budapest Ifjúság út 11 2049 Diósd, Hungary Phone: +36-20-348-1425 Links: kmceachron@teachbeyond.org www2.teachbeyond.org/support/kyle-mceachron​ Birthday: Kyle: July 5 Mission Focus I am currently serving as a secondary art and graphic design teacher at the International Christian School of Budapest in Diosd, Hungary, a Christ-centered school that acts as both an affordable school for missions families, locals, and internationals who seek an educational at an international English speaking school. Through fostering students’ love of art and design, I hope to serve the school, the families as well as continue building into the lives of the students God has placed here. I hope to be a part of the school’s vision to create a community of Christ followers, active thinkers, effective communicators, global citizens, and faithful stewards. I am also working to become involved in the community in whatever ways God opens the door for. Testimony I came to know Christ at a young age and grew up in the church, but my faith was largely centered around following the rules and avoiding all the don'ts rather than seeking opportunities to grow and be involved. My faith grew in the last few years of high school and in college thanks to godly leaders and influences in my life, but I still had my own idea for how I wanted my life to go and when those plans didn't pan out, I had to face a harsh reality check. God helped me through it by getting me involved in serving with the youth, studying the Bible through BSF, and getting involved with missions through short term trips to Hungary, reminding me that His plans are better than my own.

Biblical counseling* is available for youth, adult men, or married couples. Youth counseling will be done with another person in the room (who will be held to confidentiality standards) for accountability purposes. What to Expect Biblical Counseling is counseling that is directly centered and focused on the Bible to deal with the issues of life. Its focus is discipleship and heart change as developed through obedience to and understanding better God’s word. Ultimately, the goal is to help you respond to your life circumstances in a way that will please God. The underlying assumption is that God’s word truly is sufficient for life and godliness. Biblical counseling is meant to teach you to live a godly life in response to any life circumstances you may be going through. Everything will be held in strict confidence, except where, in the counselor’s judgment, there is a biblical and/or legal requirement to involve others (e.g. criminal activity). Counseling can be for grief, sexual sin, addictions, marital problems, depression, etc. *Counselor is not licensed or certified as a psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, mental health professional, marriage and family therapist, or social worker, and is not acting in such capacities.
