Over the years several missionaries have been sent out, supported, and celebrated as they have accomplished great things for the Kingdom of God.
The overarching vision of CLC Global Missions is reaching nations through healthy local churches. We believe that Jesus strategy for the world is the church — establishing a local expression of His church in every community. The best way to help the poor, care for children, and change a community is through a healthy, life giving community of Jesus followers, a local church.
Our strategy, therefore, is to partner with churches and movements, to use our resources to help plant and grow healthy churches and leaders that reproduce.
Pray: Jesus encouraged us to pray that the Lord of the harvest would send labourers into the harvest fields. The ongoing prayer, “Thy Kingdom come,” is the backbone of our worldwide effort. To help you effectively pray, we invite you to personally connect with one or more of the places and people that are on the frontline.
Give: Someone said the word ‘Go’ in Jesus’ Great Commission is the most expensive word in the Bible! Here is how you directly participate in reaching our world at CLC.
Your tithes: We have committed 5% of all our tithes towards Global Outreach.
Giving to Missions: We encourage you to consider making a regular donation to our Global Missions fund
Designating a Target: You can choose to designate your finances to a specific field
Go: Watch for an opportunity to go on a short-term mission. It will change your life and bless you in unexpected ways.
Rick and Deanna Bergen moved to Brazil in 1993 to learn to plant churches in the jungle. Their goal soon increased to plant 1,000 churches in the Amazon Basin They are motivated by the passionate belief that the good news of God’s amazing love is what transforms people and communities and that the best way of reaching people with this life-giving message is by fostering vibrant Jesus communities (churches) in every place.
City Life Church felt a divine call to Nepal in 2013 as our missionaries, John and Til Maarhuis, and then Pastor Justin Manzey, investigated the nation. The burning vision is to reach the approximately 50,000 population centers in Nepal that do not have any kind of church community. We have connected with Pastors Bishwa and Gopi of Life Giving Church in Katmandu. Through this partnership and network of churches, we are supporting the training of leaders who will accomplish this mission.
We are strategically partnered with the Philippine Bethel Churches whose vision is to plant churches throughout the Northern provinces. Many of these mountain peoples are unreached with the Gospel. Our efforts are focused on:
Sending ministry teams to Pastors Conferences.
Regular financial help to operate Bethel Bible Institute
Training church planters and strategically helping new church plants
Operating New Hope Children’s Home
Pastor Justin Manzey has a passion to help pastors and churches become healthy, fruitful, effective, and reach their potential to reproduce. He travels extensively both in North America and globally. We have partnered with Latitude to accomplish what God has called us to do in the places where He has directed us particularly in the Philippines and Nepal.
Darrell & Shannon have been a part of City Life Church for over thirty years. In 2005 they felt God calling them to the Philippines, where they serve as missionaries. While serving mostly in the Philippines’ rural areas, they discovered people desperately needed something beyond their spiritual needs, and that was the basic human need for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
Chuck and Bobbie have been missionaries in various parts of the world for many years. Their current primary function is training and mentoring missionaries and church leaders that they have influenced over the years.
