MISSIONS

Missions Logo

Our global and local missions causes are a natural outpouring of the passion we have for sharing the good news of Jesus with the world. Primarily, our church focuses on our causes in India and Haiti (which you can read more about below), but our Missions Team is involved with many other global and local causes that you can plug in to. If you would like further information about how you can give to any of these opportunities, join a future missions trip, or serve on one of our oversight teams, contact Mike Coffman here or Steph Steveson here.

Global Missions
AIM ASIA
AIM ASIA is a registered humanitarian agency, engaged in literacy programs, child and orphan care, leprosy care, health & educational programs, widow care, vocational training and pastoral training. It has been serving the cause of the poor and the disenfranchised in the sub-continent since 1986. Specializing in child care, over 2000 needy children are at the moment raised in AIM ASIA’s orphanages and day care centers with free hostel facility, food, clothing, medical attention, education and counsel. ICC members participate in orphan sponsorship and mission trips to India to support AIM ASIA.
 
THOUSAND HILLS HAITI
Thousand Hills Ministry seeks innovative and practical ways to financially strengthen the developing world church, specifically in Haiti.  Director Brian Stout and his wife Kathy live in Florida and work with various partners to develop sustainability projects in Haiti.  Several ICC members have gone on mission trips to Haiti to work with Brian and support the Haitian church in a variety of ways.
 
TOM DOYLE
Tom serves as the Vice President of Church and Ministry Partnerships and Middle Eastern Branch Director of e3 Partners ministry. Tom and his wife JoAnn, currently live in Dallas, Texas, began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. His ministry to pastors in this region has opened many valuable doors for him to build key relationships in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. Tom’s relations with both Arabs and Jews have paved the way for many churches to be planted and cultivated.
 
DREW & STACY FRAZER
Drew and Stacy serve with The Navigators at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Their focus is evangelism and discipleship, as they train their students to be ministers, not just attend ministry or church. They have weekly Bible studies, weekly large group meetings called Nav Night, outreach events called Investigative Bible Conversations, month training with their student leadership team, and lots of one-on-one investment in the students at CU.
 
DOUG & JEN DROLL
Doug and Jen, along with their 5 children, have lived and served in Romania since 2008. They currently serve with International Messengers. Their focus is discipleship and church planting. They also want to begin working with the Roma (Gypsies) in their area as they are virtually unengaged with the Gospel in their part of Romania. They hope to also work with orphans alongside some of their Romanian friends.
 
JON & MARY CASKEY
Jon and Mary were appointed with Greater Europe Mission (facebook.com/GEMission) February 26th, 2013. They will be working at The Camp of the Peaks just outside of Le Bourg D’Oisans in France. The camp’s motto is “A haven in France for God to save the lost and strengthen the found”. Jon will be taking over as facilities maintenance manager and Mary will be helping with administration and cooking. They are excited to be joining the permanent staff and ministry there.
