Missionaries

"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." Mark 16:15

Here at Village we are about knowing, imitating and sharing Jesus. And while we strive to do this in our local neighborhood, we also support those who are called to go beyond. Below are some of our missionaries and where they serve. Also please read their update newsletters found at the bottom of this page.
