Spreading the good news of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension is vital to our congregation. We each seek to share this truth with those in our lives, and we support others’ work locally and abroad both financially and through prayer. Our Missions Awareness Team and Local Ministry Committee keep in close contact with those we support, communicate prayer needs, and bring new missions opportunities before our congregation.

Here are some of the missionaries we support as a church.

Foreign and non-local Missionaries

  • Tim and Michelle Bradford — They are working with US military families in Germany. They are focused on pointing the families to the gospel, encouraging their personal relationship with the Lord, and spurring them on through Bible studies and time spent together.
  • Dean and Kyria Baldwin — They are working on learning the language and culture as they develop a “Faith and Farming” program. They are working along with the Presbyterian Church of Ethiopia.
  • Tom and Catalina Nachtergaele — They are working with the 18.26 Network, Mission to the World’s Vocational ministry, in Europe and the Middle East. Tom is the Chief Operating Officer and Catalina serves on the Network board.
  • C and L — They are working to spread the gospel in the South Pacific. They are teaching local men who are spreading the gospel how to farm. Farming enables these men to provide for themselves and for their families as well as have a documented profession that does not draw suspicion in this sensitive area.
  • Scott and Ruth Hill — They are working to establish a church plant in Cherokee, NC with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. They are focused on bringing the hope and good news of Jesus Christ to many people feeling a sense of hopelessness. They pray that a local Native American man would be raised up to become the pastor of their church plant.
  • Resurrection Indiana Church Plant — David and Kerri Schweissing are focused on bringing the love of Jesus and the good news of the gospel to the community in Indiana, PA. Their focus is on building a community of believers that reflects the local community whether people are rich or poor, young or old, natives or newly relocated there.
  • Mosaic Community Church Plant — Nate and Amber Keisel are focused on furthering the gospel in Jeannette through intentional community ministry. They are intentionally cross-cultural and put a large emphasis on ministering to the poor, the youth, and doing works of justice and mercy.
  • Faith Presbyterian Church Plant — Don and Patty Waltermyer are restarting a church on the Jersey shore. Don (former pastor at WPCA) is focusing on engaging the local community through open gyms and other events to bring the hope of Jesus to Northfield, NJ.
  • Heaven’s Family — This organization focuses on advancing the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ on earth by strategically linking kingdom needs and opportunities to resources provided by those who love Jesus. Through these strategic connections, Heaven’s Family invests in (1) reaching the unreached with the gospel, (2) discipling Christ’s followers, and (3) serving the suffering—particularly those whom Jesus refers to as the “least of these” (see Matt 25:31-46, 28:19-20).
  • Mission to North America — MNA provides expertise with excellence to all PCA churches, presbyteries and networks in North America by offering a suite of practical ministry resources — training, equipping, and assisting in missional purpose, serving communities to advance God’s kingdom.
