Missions

 
The Northeast church believes in the importance of Jesus' Great Commission to the church: "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). It is our privilege to use some of our monetary blessings to support the cause of world evangelism. We have been involved in foreign mission work for many years, and we have rejoiced to hear of much fruit from these efforts. Below is some information about the foreign evangelism activities that we presently support.

 

Eastern Europe

Since 1961 Eastern European Mission has been providing God's Word
to the people of Russia and Eastern Europe in their own languages. They provide Bibles and Biblical literature in 20 languages to all the nations of the former Soviet Union. These materials are provided to individuals, mission churches, campaign groups, and other organizations related to the Church that teach God's word in former communist nations. They also provide hundreds of thousands of Bibles and Biblical literature to Russian families, children in youth camps, Russian public school regions, and many orphanages. In 2009, children's Bibles and curriculum materials for classes on character formation and ethics have been distributed to every school in the Donetsk region of Ukraine.
 
In addition, Eastern European Mission helps underwrite television broadcasts in Ukraine which have been very successful in spreading the message to the people of this former communist country. For more information about Eastern European Mission, click here.
 
 
 
 
 

India

The India mission outreach supports local preachers in India,
helps to construct church buildings, and assists in the printing
of Bible study materials, such as the International Gospel Teacher. Thanks to the efforts of the many Christians who have worked in India for more than 30 years, there are presently more Christians in India than in the United States. The West Freeway Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas oversees this work. They have created a video report of the work being done in India. To view the video, click here.
 
  
 
 

Nigeria

Dr. Moses Akpanudo and his wife Jessie have worked for many years to establish schools in Nigeria. Their work has resulted in the establishment of the Gene and Sue Lamb Nursery/Primary School, Obong Christian High School, and most recently Obong University. The University is the first four-year private university owned and operated by members of the Church of Christ in the continent of Africa.
 
Additional information about the work in Nigeria is available at the Mt. Morris Church of Christ website.
