You'll be able to walk away from this training knowing you have support from others just like you in the ministry of leading teens closer to Christ!

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. . .” This is the beginning of one of my favorite scriptures. Even though I love this scripture, it can also be difficult and challenging. It saddens me because I have seen the reality that the “laborers for the harvest” (Christians […]

What’s insane? Missionaries. For the past month some of the male missionaries at Covecrest have been getting up early and working out with a program called Insanity. Now, when I say early I mean 5 in the morning. For a guy straight from the west coast who was used to getting home […]

As missionaries have always tried to live simply, but as with anything, over time (especially while living in the U.S.) we become more and more comfortable, and it is easy to justify extras. Soon our conviction to live in solidarity with the poor is compromised by settling with a lifestyle that is just a little more simple than that of the others around us . . . not exactly the definition of Gospel poverty!

I realized that a major motivation to go on foreign missions was selfishly motivated by what I got out of them. I now have a greater understanding of “It is better to give, than to receive.”
This is my third mission to Ghana in just over 2 years. On my first trip, I came as a single missionary working with FMC (Family Missions Company) and throughout the mission I got to know and fell in love with my missionary husband, Erik. God is faithful and made […]
This summer Life Teen Missionaries are going back to Ghana, Africa and we need a few good men. We currently have filled all our slots for women, but we could still use a few more men. We are looking for college aged students or recent grads who are looking to […]
