Missions

Worldwide Missions

At White Fields Community Church in Longmont, Colorado we have an opportunity to fulfill our church’s vision by praying for and supporting missionaries who love the Lord and have a heart for His people.  Please pray for these families who are fulfilling the great commission decreed by our Lord in Matthew 28:19-20~

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, 

Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son 

and of the Holy Spirit, 

teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. 

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Let us know if you’d like to join us on short term mission trips. Please prayerfully consider how you can bless our missionaries currently out in the field ministering to people and working to bring the gospel to the lost by praying for our missionaries, contacting them, or by financially supporting them.

History of how you came to missionary work

I moved to Ukraine in 2005 with my parents when I was 15. At the time I wasn't walking with the Lord. Shortly after the move, God grabbed my heart. By God's grace alone, I have had the privilege of being on the field ever since.


Ministry outreaches you are involved in
Currently, my family has moved to Dnipro, Ukraine to plant a church.


Vision for growing your ministry
Our overall vision and desire for the upcoming work in Dnipro is to plant a church that further plants churches in different neighborhoods of the city, and potentially in the surrounding towns.

Lindsey Cuen

History of how you came to missionary work
I attended Calvary Chapel Bible College and did my final semester in Hungary. That's when God called me to missions and gave me an unexplainable love for Hungary.


Ministry outreaches you are involved in
I serve alongside our pastor in our gypsy church in Heves, Hungary and we work together with a group of local pastors and church leaders called "Christians for Eger" to organize outreach events in our city. In the past we have done flash mobs, reading through the new testament in the city hall in a 36 hour period and a marriage week.


Vision for growing your ministry
We plan to continue to work with the local group of church leaders to serve our city and show the people of Eger the love of God. We hope to have a booth at the local family days festival where we can minister to the children and their parents. We also plan to read through the whole Bible at city hall in the future. Finally we plan to work alongside the Ez az a Nap (This is the Day) team who organize the largest annual Christian concert in Hungary to evangelize our city by filling the stadium for a roadshow concert as we did before the pandemic.

Jonathan and Stephanie Markey

Kathryn, George, Mira, Melody, Sophia, Noelle

 

History of how you came to missionary work
My parents were missionaries. When I was 6, our family moved to Kyiv, Ukraine (1992) and we started a Calvary Chapel. With time I began to sense the same calling to be a part of planting and growing healthy, bible-teaching churches. I met Stephanie when she was on a short-term missions trip with a ministry that helps kids from low-income families. We connected over both having a passion for missions. One year after we were married we moved to Ternopil (Western Ukraine) to help with a church plant that my brother, George had started.

Ministry outreaches you are involved in
Pastoring and discipling. We have a music ministry called Room For More that is focused on telling the gospel story through various creative avenues. This has been a great opportunity to meet and build relationships with people both inside and outside of the body of Christ.

Vision for growing your ministry
We are working with leadership that has been established in the church to continue encouraging them to disciple others and meet the needs of people in our city. We have a unique position in Ukraine with our music. We have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from the songs we've written across the denomination spectrum. Baptists, Pentecostals, Charismatics and some Greek Catholics all use our songs. Music is a powerful tool and our desire is to use it to help people think theologically and biblically. We want to continue to produce gospel-centered, quality songs and also provide a platform for other artists to get their music out and collaborate on projects. We are a small team of 5, but are praying and hoping to continue growing.

History of how you came to missionary work
I first came to Ukraine on a mission trip with my Bible college. During the trip I sensed that God was calling me to be a missionary in Ukraine. After some years of finishing Bible college, and serving missionaries as the missions coordinator at my church, I joined up with another missionary and moved to Ukraine. Originally we planned to start something new in a small city. But when we arrived there was a call and request to take over the work in Kharkiv, because the last missionary there was leaving. Almost 16 years later, still here and now the head pastor.


Ministry outreaches you are involved in
I am the head pastor of the church. I teach the main services. Also I am training younger guys to hone their preaching skills. My wife leads the women’s ministry. She also recently started a small Bilingual (English/Ukrainian) Christian elementary school. We also have 4 adopted/foster children. I also organize national conferences, pastor, and leadership conferences for the Calvary Chapels of Ukraine.


Vision for growing your ministry
Training the next generation of leaders/pastors in my local church, and other Calvary Chapels throughout Ukraine. This includes my local preacher training group. Also this is why I am involved with leadership conferences to help equip the other churches. Long term I have a visions for a leadership training program, sort of like a flexible Bible college

The Morrisons

Abby and Isaac

 

History of how you came to missionary work
Benjamin Morrison took his first trip to Ukraine in 2001 with Calvary Chapel Bible College of Indianapolis. During that first summer, God called him to share the Gospel of grace with the people of Ukraine. Benjamin moved to Ukraine in January of 2002, he and Lena were married in Sept. 2003. God gradually began laying a burden on their hearts to start a new work where there was no grace-teaching church. In March 2005 they moved to Svitlovodsk, Lena’s home town of 50,000. Benjamin began a Bible study in their apartment that June. Since then Jesus has been faithful to grow Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk and to change lives by the power of His grace. The church continues to grow and reach out to the community with the Gospel today. Benjamin serves as lead pastor of Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk and occasionally travels as a speaker around Ukraine.


Ministry outreaches you are involved in
Our church’s vision is to reach the world with the Gospel. We want to see more and more Gospel-centered churches being planted across Ukraine and the whole world. In February 2014, Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk sent its first missionaries out..

Vision for growing your ministry
To enjoy Jesus, to stand fast in grace, to live and love, to reach the world.

Isaac Nelson

 

History of how you came to missionary work
Growing up as a pastor's kid, I was involved in the church at a young age. I made a confession of faith when I was little, was baptized when I was 10, and was a generally "good kid." However, I did not have a personal relationship with Christ until I was older. As a teenager, I had many doubts about what I believed. God met me in a real and personal way. I understood the Gospel for the first time. Understanding the Good News of the Gospel changed my life and led me into missionary work.


Ministry outreaches you are involved in
I now serve with Athletes in Action to help equip coaches around the world to leverage their platform to make disciples, partner with churches to help them use sports to minister to their community, and send soccer teams globally to assist international missions efforts.


Vision for growing your ministry
Working at the global headquarters for Athletes in Action, I serve alongside churches and missionaries around the world. The vision is to be a catalyst for Gospel work by partnering with others to utilize the opportunity sports provides to share Christ and make disciples.

I met Sam in Hungary in 2016, he invited me to join his missional band Final Greetings. I joined in 2018 and I’ve been a part of it since.
