Many of the whom we work with are missionaries from the International Mission Board.

There is also information about our mission partners and connections located at our mission wall at the church.

If you need to miss more than one or are not able to make the Sunday trainings due to another standing commitment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your training leader to make arrangements.
