North Hope Church partners with four missionary families. We view missionary support as an essential piece of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). Therefore, it is a foundational piece of our church's Acts 1:8 mission.
Tony, Laurie, and their 4 children are located on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. It is known as “The most un-evangelized island on earth,” There, the Minang and Melayu people groups are two of the largest unreached people groups. Both are over 99.9% Muslim. The Thompson's opportunity to have a transformational impact is through their purposeful and strategic investment in the lives of national leaders, helping them to be: Grounded in the Gospel, Doing through Discipleship, Powered by Prayer, and Merging with Christ’s Mission.
Arthur & Ann (Aliases)
Arthur, Ann, and their three daughters serve in North Africa in a country where 99.96% of the population is unreached. Islam is the predominate religion, and Christian missionary work is not tolerated by the government. Arthur & Ann's focus is raising up local Christians to plant and lead churches throughout the area. Often their meetings are held in an olive grove, which they have amusingly referred to as meeting at Olive Garden.
Ben & Becky (Aliases)
Ben, Becky, and their son live and work in a West Asian city where there is a heavy Muslim influence and presence. Their mission is to help plant churches and equip local believers to lead and sustain them.
Justin, Krista, & their four children are serving in Chad, Africa with African Inland Mission (AIM). Justin and Krista serve in Chad as unit leaders. They handle member care, vision casting, developing national church relations, and equipping the team.
