These are presently missionaries and missions that we support in prayer. Each of them are very dear friends whom we have known and loved for some years. We delight to know that the Gospel is going forth to many nations through such vessels. We are a church with a world-wide missionary burden.
"My name is Will Graham and I serve the Lord in Spain. I left my native city of Belfast (Northern Ireland) back in 2007 when I graduated from Queen’s University in order to study at the Spanish Evangelical Seminary (Cordova). Incidentally, I now serve there as a voluntary teacher. As well as teaching at the Seminary, the rest of my time is divided between giving English lessons at a local language academy and itinerant preaching. God awoke a powerful flame for preaching in my heart shortly after my conversion in 2002 and over the years this fire within has only grown more and more intensely. I have been called to announce the Gospel. That is the reason I live, I breathe and I exist. God’s hand lies strong upon me. I cannot resist Him. My desire is for Spain (and the West as a whole) to come back to God. I long for the nations to experience an encounter with the Spirit of Christ. For that I pray and for that I labour. I am grateful to God for your prayers and support in extending the Kingdom of God.Let’s keep pressing on! King Jesus is just around the corner! Yours in Christ, Will." Will and Agota ministered amongst us in August 2016.
Stephen & Hilary Cartwright - Africa
"I have been working with the teaching of the School of Christ since 1999, when I first traveled as a missionary to the country of India. Hilary (my wife) and I lived there for 3 years running short term Bible Schools, which trained pastors and leaders of churches with the School of Christ curriculum. In 2002, due to visa problems, we had to move back to America where I was asked to work in the head office of the School of Christ International in Beaumont, Texas. For 9 years I worked as the Media Coordinator for the School of Christ International. During this time I was privileged to see the School Of Christ established first hand in Indonesia and Pakistan. Our family relocated to Indonesia for a time in 2004 to see the work firmly established in that country. In 2007, I began running leadership training schools throughout Africa using the School of Christ curriculum. In November 2011, as a family we moved to Africa." - As of Summer 2013 the Cartwright's have returned to live in America from where they continue the work across Africa. Brother Stephen has ministered in the church several times.
Brian Larsen - South America & Japan
Brian Larsen started working with the School of Christ in 1999. He remembers clearly the day that he sat at breakfast with Pastor Clendennen in the country of Jordan. God confirmed the call He had placed on his life in 1995 to become a full-time missionary with the School of Christ. Brian has been Director/Supervisor over South America. He now oversees the work in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. In 2010 God opened the door for Brian to take the School of Christ to Japan. Brian and his family serve the Lord humbly, faithfully and effectually in running these Bible Schools across these lands. As a church we stand with him in prayer that God's Word will go forth in power.
School of Christ International
School of Christ International was birthed 22 years ago to train preachers, missionaries, church planters and leaders to effectually fulfil the Great Commission. It was founded in 1992 by B.H. Clendennen and for the next 18 years he traveled world-wide teaching the school. It has been used in the Lord's hands to forge a vessel of recovery out of all the confusion of this hour calling men and woman back to a Biblical revelation of Jesus Christ and to prepare a vessel for revival. The translating work of the School of Christ material into many languages has been an ongoing project. From the North Pole to the Amazon jungles God has indeed blessed this work in some 150 different countries. Brother Clendennen taught the school several times here in Limerick to believers from several different European countries. He was a very close personal friend of the leadership of this church. We continue to run a three week school each summer for those hungry for God.
