The Missions Board is responsible for overseeing the missions activity within the Church body. This includes encouraging our youth and adults to engage in missions activities, recommending a missions budget to the congregation each year, recommending changes in missionary support and arranging hosting for visiting missionaries. We meet regularly to learn more about missions, receive updates about our church-support missionaries, and pray for our missionaries in the field.
Over the past several years, the Missions Board has worked hard to strengthen the relationships we have with our church supported missionaries. We currently have 12 individuals or agencies on our “roster” – a number that we believe will be stable over the next several years. Each member of the board has taken “ownership” of 2-3 missionaries and takes personal responsibility for praying for those missionaries, corresponding regularly with them, and reporting to the board any special needs or requests.
Twain Harte Bible Church is missions-minded, earmarking nearly 15% of our general fund budget for missionary support and short-term trips. We strongly encourage our members to take short-term missions trips, both within the US and abroad.
Currently serving on the Missions Board are: Pastor Matt, Sharon Koskela, Dave Babb, Pam Kitchen, Jeff Broaddus, Bob Sandberg, Mark LaPorte, Joseph Lee, Bob Veach, Emily Baier, and Chery Lampl.
