GO MINISTRY

Go Partner Open House  We will be having a special Open House on Sunday, October 6, at 6:30 p.m. for our missionary partners who are visiting us on furlough, Elijah and Allison Kellogg, to share all God has been doing in their lives and ministry! Elijah and Alli are working in Southeast Asia among a vastly unreached people group called the Shan-Tai. Elijah and Alli will be living among the Shan, working with primarily college students, but also others in their city share the gospel and plant house-based churches within the Shan culture and language. They are in the process of beginning a coffee house that will be used for English learning and gospel opportunities.
