Juan Kempers Seminary

In the 1920s, a new field of expansion opened in Chiapas with the help of missionaries John and Mabel Kempers of the Reformed Church in America (RCA). The National Presbyterian Church in Mexico developed important evangelistic work in Chiapas, first among the Spanish-speaking population and then among the Mayan-speaking people in the 1950s. Today Chiapas is one of the strongholds of the National Presbyterian Church. The number of members of the National Presbyterian Church in Chiapas alone is greater than the total number of RCA members.

Apache Reformed Church

RCA ministry in Apache, Oklahoma, has roots in mission work at nearby Fort Sill dating back to 1895. That’s when Frank Wright was sent as a missionary to the Fort Sill Apaches, who were prisoners of the U.S. Army and had been relocated several times. When the tribe was released, they moved to Apache, where they began their own congregation. Apache Reformed Church is a congregation mostly comprised of Comanche, Kiowa, and Apache Indians. 

Center of Hope

The Center of Hope exists to share the hope and peace we have in Jesus, physically and spiritually. We do that by providing spiritual and social service help those who find themselves in difficult life situations in the Sioux Falls community. Center of Hope is "a front-line ministry that meets people right where they are."

After serving as missionaries in Kenya, Dick and Donna returned to Ethiopia, where the Daasanech people still remembered Dick’s parents.
