Higher in Christ, Deeper in Faith, Wider in Love

Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

At East Main, we endeavor to grow Wider in love through mission and service. Part of our ministry, then, relies on missions.  We support many local and foreign missions.  Would you like to be involved? Contact any of our leaders for more information on how to contribute to the ministries we support (and more).

Active Missionaries We Support

Doug and Tammy White

They do active work with Wycliffe  Associates that provides Bible translation technology to many languages throughout the world.  They are based here in Indiana, but travel throughout the world. We support them financially and they visit our church to give updates from time to time.

Kris and Lizzy White

Kris and Lizzy are missionaries in the Dominican Republic, where Freedom International calls its home.  Their vision is to "develop life-changing relationships with those most unlikely so that they become catalysts for change within the Dominican Republic." One of their principle missions is the ongoing construction of an active school. We send groups down to help with this ministry. The next mission trip dates are Jan. 18-25, 2020 and July 11-18, 2020.

Menge

You!

Menge is one part of the mission "Hope Overflowing" in Ethiopia.  The mission developed from the desire to do more for the vulnerable children of Ethiopia for the glory of God. The mission continues to grow as do the challenges. We pray for Menge and the ministry.
