Prayer request for this ministry in 2021- Pray that God will use anoint Pastor Marwan to preach the Word of God in a more powerful and impactful way this year. Believe God for a move of His Spirit through out the regions that the four churches minister in.

In addition to the church in Shefar-Am, he has established four churches in different places: the West Bank, Beqeen, Ma’lia, Beana and the Lord used him to reopen the ministry in Fasota. He is also Pastoring a church in KefarYassif.

The church has a missionary work. Many ministries have been established through this Church in places where there was no evangelical work. One of these ministries is the Church of Baana, which was established in 1994 through Pastor Marwan and his wife.
A work has also been established in the West Bank among Muslims. There are still villages and cities around the city of Shefaram that have not yet been preached the word of God and some of them are Muslim villages.

Teams are comprised of broadcast professionals, students and lay people drawn together with the common desire of serving the vision of Christian radio and television for societies yet unreached.

Sharing Media Teams have conducted multiple seminars in Poland, Belize, Guatemala, Spain, Romania, Australia, Zambia, Nigeria and England. Through this work, God has raised up dozens of viable, locally run Christian stations around the world.

Jeff Collins—Jeff Collins Ministry

Fun fact about Jeff- I travel the world and never set an alarm clock. I live out of the scripture, “morning by morning You awaken me that I may have the tongue of the learned.”  Isaiah 50:4

Jeff and Milicent Collinsresigned the pastorate to obey the call of God to, “like Abraham and Sarah, go out, not knowing where.” God has been faithful to lead them throughout the nations. Having been in over forty countries, their predominant focus is Europe, the Middle East, parts of Asia, Africa, North and South America, as well as the islands of the seas.

 

Jeff Collins Ministry is an itinerant ministry that has been commissioned and sent into the world to preach the good news. Jeff’s heart is to preach, teach, equip, empower, and release the body of Christ to live in a personal revival and to receive the abundant life that Jesus provided for us at the cross.

James and Shannon Doherty—Dignata-Business for Orphans

Prayerrequest for this ministry in 2021-Please pray that the Doherty’s will receive continued favor with both God and man. Ask God to open all the doors that have been closed by Covid 19, so that James and Shannon will be able to minister in Europe in 2021. Also pray for continued healing for Shannon.

James and Shannon worked with trafficked women and orphans as missionaries in Amsterdam, Netherlands; Riga, Latvia; and Pune, India. Their family focus has shifted to pouring into the kids in their community through their private Christian school that they started in Thompson Falls, Montanain the fall of 2019. This school has come out of a vision to see our nation turn it’s heart back to God. While in prayer James felt the Lord say, “Give me 10 years and the hearts of these kids and this whole nation will return to Me.

” The Dohertys believe this wholeheartedly and are doing their best to see this vision take place. The ministry of John the Baptist was to preach repentance and to turn the hearts of the fathers back to their children before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. That was the first time that Jesus came to earth. Maybe for a second time before His return He is instructing us all with the same mandate. Come Lord Jesus.

Annie was a music education major at Sam Houston State University and taught 5th & 6th grade orchestra for two years.
Her love for teaching and music coupled with Danny’s love for history helped opened doors for them in Istanbul, Turkey where they spent the first two years of their missions calling.  Now, God has taken Danny and Annie to Ankara, the capital city of Turkey where over 6 million people live and only 5 full gospel works exist!

Justin and Kynada Boland—One Mission

Fun fact about Justin- We live in the place where the Bible happened. One time we made a life-size replica of Goliath and went to the Valley of Elah so the kids could throw stones and shoot arrows at him.
Pray these verses over each of the Bolandsin2021-I Colossians 1:9-12For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of.

Since January 2016, Justin and Kynada Boland have been leading the work of One Mission in Israel partnering with The Jewish Agency for Israel in Jerusalem. The Jewish Agency is tasked by the government of Israel, to help any Jew from around the world make their home in Israel–whether they are fulfilling a dream or escaping a nightmare.

As a family, God called them with the story of Nehemiah, “to fight and to build the wall of Jerusalem”. They continue to become more rooted in this calling as they: connect Christians and Jews to work together, serve on the ministry team of a local congregation, build friendships with classmates, coworkers, and neighbors, train Israelis in disaster preparedness, support poor families in need, and pray for God’s love to be poured out.
