World-wide

Doug McClintic

From the secular cities of Europe to the villages of the global South, the world is desperate to hear the good news of Jesus. One of the best ways to share that message is through planting churches and starting church planting movements. In Doug's role as global church planting consultant, he provides support, strategic coordination, and expertise to congregations, classes, regional synods, and other agencies in the global church planting efforts.

Bob and Amy Abel

In many countries, it has become culturally acceptable for families to sell their children to make ends meet. Child sex slavery is a massive industry: 1.2 million children are sold globally each year.

Bob Abel works with Remember Nhu, an organization that works to end child sex slavery in 13 countries. Remember Nhu uses a prevention model that keeps children out of the sex trade before they’re sold, leading to whole communities that have put sex brokers out of business.
