International Missions

Missions is the very heart of God! “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Jesus Christ was the first missionary!
Recognizing that God’s heart is that none should perish (John 3:16), and that Jesus specifically instructs all believers to Go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16; Luke 24:46,47), we desire to see every true disciple of Christ, at The Crossing Church, actively involved in making a difference in people’s lives through Missions/Outreach, on either a local, domestic or international level.

International Ministry Partners

Get involved in the life of The Crossing by connecting with one of our many international partners. We believe that God has given us the mission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations. Through these different organizations, we invite each of our members to start investing in sharing the love of Christ to every end of the earth.

DAVID FLANDERS

DAVID FLANDERS Soul’s Harbour was founded in 1987 by Pastor David Flanders and his wife Joy. A small group met in the Flanders’ home for a few months until they outgrew it and then moved to the St. John Ambulance Hall. After about three years the Church moved into a leased property where it met for nine years. In September 1999 Soul’s Harbour moved into the present building. Initially it was going to be a short-term home but the Lord began to give us great vision for reaching the community and surrounding region. United behind the vision Souls Harbour members came together to create a youth café and extensive facilities to reach youth and children in Camelford and the surrounding villages! In May 2001 Soul’s Harbour purchased the building and began renovation and remodeling. God provided financial help and material donations from a number of charities and local businesses because of the vision to help the surrounding communities!
In 2018, a new phase of Souls Harbour outreach was born through the vision of Trevor and Connie Smith, founders of U.K. for Jesus and associate pastors of Souls Harbour church. The GROW CENTRE is a resource centre located in a main street shop that is showing God’s love to the Camelford and surrounding communities by providing practical help and support such as food and clothing to people in need. Here at Soul’s Harbour, we are committed to creating a “Climate for Change” ~ changed lives, changed communities and a changed world.

Yes, over the last 50 years of ministry our implementations have shifted on our priority list. This is indicative of older people who view their clocks as counting down and not up. For the past 7 years we have dedicated ourselves to translate, record and distribute the New Testament on solar powered MP3 players to unreached tribal groups in the amazon jungle specifically. Our previous 32 years we engaged in bible translations in various countries. Why? Because “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”

Our Vision for 2020 is the same.
Of course we do many peripheral activities such as public evangelism (5 countries) and child evangelism (2 countries) as well as teaching bible studies (Amazon tribal groups) and in more modern settings teaching in seminaries (Instituto Biblico Peruano) and developing online classes of New Testament Analysis

and Fundamental Tenants of the Christian Faith plus Audio Bible Analysis

Since the quarantine we have also focused on Internet Ministry with regular teaching to 7 Latin American countries to date which may all be seen on  https://NBT.org

HAITI

HAITI

Coreluv is our gateway to Haiti. Coreluv is committed to developing a culture of adoption both within the local communities surrounding our orphanages and through facilitating international adoptions. Our Coreluv partners who pursue adoption after visiting one of our orphanages overseas help make this vision a reality. We believe every child deserves a family of its own and we will continue to develop connections and resources to help make this a reality.

Financial Effectiveness

Dedicated support from a select group of private donors covers all of Coreluv’s operating and marketing expenses. Literally 100% of every dollar you invest in a Coreluv International orphanage goes directly toward providing for the needs of children in our orphanages.

Sustainable Approach

Orphan care takes place in a much broader context involving such considerations as government agencies, local businesses, agricultural issues, and the local church. By connecting with and investing in the above areas surrounding our orphanage communities we are building programs that will last and creating the framework to change children’s lives but also to change a nation.

Orphanage Sponsorships

_Coreluv works exclusively with orphans, children who have lost all hope. In addition to providing for needs such as clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, and job skills training we provide for an orphan’s greatest need: a loving home. As such, in contrast to providing support for individual children, our partners are given the opportunity to support entire orphanage communities.

JAMES & SHANNON DOHERTY, DIGNATA

There are around 20 million trafficked girls and women in the world. Dignata has branches reaching women in the world’s darkest trafficking hubs, of Amsterdam, Netherlands; Houston, USA; Riga, Latvia; and Pune, India to name some. Dignata empowers women to become free from sexual exploitation and trafficking by bringing them to safe places and giving them a sustainable income creating Dignata Designs’ beautiful, high-end jewelry; and offering them a full spectrum of aftercare assistance with our partner organizations. Together we restore dignity and bring freedom.  We are on the front lines of the battle against slavery, empowering and guiding girls and women out of its clutches. We see dignity restored, and beauty created. 

The Dignata Ranch is where we are training up Advocates who will go to these dark places and bring empowerment and a leading hand of freedom to women trafficked in the sex trade, in paralyzing poverty, and held in debt bondage (forced to sell their bodies to “pay off” un-payable debts.) Dignata advocates are trained to fight human trafficking in the places women are sold, empower the exploited, and manage a branch of Dignata’s sustainable jobs.

Dignata is a non-profit organization that pays NO STAFF SALARIES. All of the funds raised go to empowering the exploited: the operating costs of Dignata, the Dignata Ranch; and the Dignata Training Schools to train up Advocates.

 Empower these precious women today by joining our campaign. GIVE and SHARE. (Your simple act of generosity changes everything.)

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of a shared island with Haiti. The island was originally founded as the first Spanish colony of Hispaniola when it was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, and it wasn’t until 1844 that the Dominican Republic became its own nation. Santo Domingo is the capital city, located on the southern coast. It is the largest city and port in the country, and it is said that Christopher Columbus’ remains are located in one of the city’s cathedrals. Today, the Dominican Republic is a democratic nation, but the people first had to endure a long string of repressive governments. It is a highly agricultural country, with the main crops being sugarcane, coffee, tobacco and cocoa. However, as tourism grows it is challenging agriculture for the #1 spot in the economic sector. Sadly, there is a high rate for underemployment and income inequality – the poorest half of the country’s people hold less than a fifth of the money. Our project is a church/school located in Comendador. We support some of the children who go to the school, and have completed a construction project there in 2015. We will be going back for Spring Break 2016!

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.

WORLD GOSPEL OUTREACH
WORLD GOSPEL OUTREACH

WORLD GOSPEL OUTREACH

For 36 years, WGO has been devoted to fulfilling our mission of Impacting the faith of Christ followers through serving and evangelizing children and the poor. Through God’s faithful provision, WGO stewards this mission through three major components. 

Children’s Ministry providing care for at-risk children 24x7x20 since each resident of the ranch is cared for 24 hours each day, seven days each week, for up to 20 years, as James 1:27           instructs to “care for the poor, especially the widows and orphans”. Rancho Ebenezer operates with a team of native Honduran teachers, caregivers and American missionaries. 

Secondly, from the mandate of Matthew 4:19, to “be fishers of men and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost” and “be accountable before God for how we meet the needs of others” (Matthew 25:31-46) WGO developed medical brigade ministries. Partnering with local churches to reach their community WGO trains volunteers, contracts local medical professionals, and hosts North American volunteers to serve and evangelize an average of 600+ individuals weekly. 

Thirdly, creating an opportunity to impact the North American believer through engagement, WGO hosts nearly 100 Serve Teams each year for a short-term missional experience. Teams engage in their choice of medical brigade, construction projects, food and water distribution, children’s services, and Pastoral discipleship programs.

YOUSEF DAKWAR

We are a body of Arab believers from Haifa, Israel.  We want to model a people transformed by Christ reconciled to God and our brothers, Sons of Isaac and Ishmael, as One New Man in Christ. And to show God’s compassion to the broken hearted, hopeless and hurting people. We proclaim God’s Glory back to Israel.

We are here in Israel doing our best to serve God in the midst of        all the challenges and the hostile culture against the Gospel in the middle east. But Praise God for using us to be a light for the nations and bringing Jesus to be known for many people in our region.

Our ministry work in two main fields.

1- The New Covenant Church

2- Cross Media Productions (Media Outreach)

Both of these ministries are registered under one non-profit organization in Israel Called “Cross Media”

And praise to God every year we receive a certificate of good standing from the Government.

Since 2003 the New Covenant Church prosper spiritually and physically. The evangelical work in Israel still considered as new work, my self I am first generation believer. But praise to God, since I came to the lord in 1987 until this day we saw thousands of new believers coming to the lord in all of Israel Arabs and Jews and hundreds of churches born in this land. This is a huge change in our dry country.

As the New Covenant church in Haifa we put goals in front of our eyes work and dream to see it in our local church and all the community surrounding us.

1- we shared the Gospel with many people from our city, 

2- we trained new people to be involved in Ministry and taking responsibilities in the ministry.

3- we baptized new believers in water and disciple them to become good followers of Jesus.

4- we reach out to the needy people with basic food supplies on a monthly basis.  (both Jews and Arabs.)

5- we teach bible classes on weekly bases and also provide training in Bible college level for the people who like to become more advanced in Knowledge and ministry.

6- We provide family and personal counseling Through the ministry of my wife Dr. Christine Dakwar she served believers and nonbelievers helping them to overcome their challenges and bringing peace back to these families and personal lives. 

Refugees outreach in Europe and Turkey

Since 2015 we realized the need for Arabic speaking believers traveling to Europe and sharing the Gospel with all the refugees who came from Syria and Iraq. More than 2.5 million people came to Europe running away from the war in their countries seeking shelter and opportunities there. 

But the European church was not ready and prepared for this in advance.

So we felt the call of God to travel there and share the gospel with them. Because we know the language and the culture too.

God did miracles by saving hundreds all over Europe. Finland, Greece, Belgium, Germany, and Turkey. I never saw in my entire life Muslims coming to Jesus like what I saw in the last five years. 

Today we have real faithful followers of Jesus and many of them become leaders in their communities too.

Before the Corona Virus crises, we traveled almost every month, sharing and teaching the new believers in Christ.

Adding to that we went to Turkey visiting the camps there and helped the needy refugees with basic supplies, ( food, Covers, heaters… ).

Most of the time God used the New Covenant Church to donate the money with the help of other churches from outside.

Cross Media Productions

Since 2004 CMP brought The Good news to millions of Arabs from all over the world. We produce programs for children, family, teaching Christian growth, evangelism, music, video clips… and all of that just for the sake of the Gospel.

God used CMP to help thousands of believers in the Middle East and Europe who don’t have any access to a church to keep up their faith and providing for them teaching and discipleship throughout TV, Radio, and social networks.

God has used us in the middle of the COVID 19 Crisis while all the churches in Israel are closed we sent out daily video teaching for hundreds of people to keep them connected to God and his word, the fruit was great people become more open to listen and receive Gods word in their life.
