GREG SUMII – Care Pastor

Our church takes seriously the mandate that Jesus gave His church in Acts 1:8, “You shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

I am so grateful that the church was obedient to this mandate over the centuries- otherwise we wouldn’t be here today!  Likewise, we are committed to be faithful witnesses in our “Jerusalem” or the city of Fresno, and throughout the world.

We partner with many local, national and international missionaries to spread the gospel to everyone on earth.  We have included a listing of all of our missions partners , a description of their mission and their missions organization’s website.

Upcoming Mission Trips

Guinea-Bissau - February 20th - March 3rd

This tiny country in West Africa is one of the world’s poorest nations. On this immersive trip we’ll learn how our missions partner, West African Vocational Schools, is combating poverty and unemployment with job skills and the gospel. On the trip we’ll have the opportunity to develop relationships with local students and teachers, help WAVS with various projects and experience what God is doing in Africa. We’ll also spend part of our time talking with local, church, and political leaders. Finally, we’ll have an opportunity to spend a day in the village life of a Guinea-Bissau woman.

Trip cost: $3400

Lebanon - April 3rd - 13th

Imagine your home was destroyed, many of your friends and family were murdered, and you were forced to flee your country for an unfamiliar place. This is the reality for over 2 million refugees living in Lebanon. This will be an immersive trip were we will see how our mission’s partner, Youth for Christ, is offering hope to many of the refugee youth living in Beirut and the Bakka Valley. We’ll help lead youth sports activities and get to visit with Syrian refugees, as well as, learn what being a peacemaker in a broken world looks like.

Trip cost: Approximately $2700
