Extend

Missions Ministry

The missions ministry exists to glorify God by creating opportunities to extend the gospel to the surrounding local community, as well as opportunities to serve and give towards regional, national, and global areas. We make it our priority to bear witness to the gospel in both word and deed. We recognize the significant value of sharing the gospel message through both proclamation and demonstration.

If you would like to be more involved in any of these mission opportunities, please email us at help@searoadchurch.org.

 

LOCAL MISSIONS

Heather Lewis – Cyprus

missions-heather-lewisHeather works with a ministry called Ideas based in Littleton, CO. The work she is involved with takes her to many countries of unrest, many of which are located in the Mediterranean area. In certain countries, religious persecution is creating a desperate situation. Families are fleeing after being forced to either accept the local religion or die. Because of this activity, a current project she is helping organize is called Oasis in the country of Cyprus and is designed to help facilitate provision of food, clothing and shelter to these homeless refugees seeking to begin a new life. We are thankful for Heather’s commitment to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.  Heather Lewis, kzheather@gmail.com.
