Missions & Evangelism


As Christians part of our mission is to support our community, both local and international. We stand behind many missions, as well as international organizations and outside brothers and sisters in Christ. You can read more specifics on those missions below. We have been blessed to serve on mission trips to places such as Puerto Rico and Haiti. We strive together to do anything we can to provide hope, help, and happiness to those who need it, all in the name of the Lord.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’" (Matthew 25:40)

RETA - Reasons Enough to Act 

                                                                RETA is a faith-based pregnancy clinic and family 

                                                                resource center located in downtown Elkhart. They

provide free, confidential services and help for those facing an unplanned pregnancy; for new

parents or new grandparents, for men who want to make a better life or learn to be good

dads, and women who want to become good moms. Their mission is to provide life-affirming

services and build Christ-centered families.  

                   The Gees' mission efforts are designed to support a local

                   Baptist church in the city of Cuenca. Primera Iglesia Bautista de

                   Cuenca is involved in many outreach projects including medical clinics, dental clinics, music                           classes for youth, sports clinics, and orphan outreach. The Gees work with the local church to                       teach orphans the great news of salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ. They also provide financial 

                   support to the church and host other church groups on short-term mission projects. Ultimately, they want to bless the people of Ecuador by sharing the Gospel.


Gee Family Missions

                                                                 Life Action Ministries was founded in 1971 to spark

                                                                 spiritual change in families, churches, and nations.

In 2005 Amy’s life was changed when their church hosted a Life Action Summit. Dave’s life was

radically changed when he attended Life Action Camp’s Momentum men’s retreat in 2009 and

he fell in love with God’s Word. In 2010 Dave and Amy joined Life Action Camp, where Dave

has pursued a calling to help men grow closer to Jesus.

                    Faith Mission seeks to provide faith-based programs and

                    services that minister to the homeless and other individuals

                    so they may have positive life-changing opportunities. They offer means of shelter, meals, and 

                    self-improvement. This year, Faith Mission will serve more than 53,000 meals to men, women 

                    and children at the Mission, and at churches in Elkhart Valley, Middlebury and Nappanee. Your generous giving helps to provide for those in our community who need it most.

Faith Mission of Elkhart


                                                                            Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN), the Church

                                                                            of the Brethren in Nigeria, is the largest national 

body of the Church of the Brethren in the world. With a vibrant history of nearly 100 years, EYN

has placed a high emphasis on education, health, and agriculture. Today EYN continues to be

ravaged by attacks from the militant group Boko Haram. Emergency assistance is being provided

through the Emergency Disaster Fund. The Church of the Brethren in the US partners with EYN

in a number of meaningful ways: Kulp Theological Seminary (KTS), the major training institution for Nigerian church leadership; and the church-sponsored Comprehensive Secondary School. In addition, the Theological Education by Extension (TEE) program trains more than 1,500 people in basic Christian education.


Nigerian Church of the Brethren (EYN)

                    This service is offered directly from 

                    Shepherd's Heart. Open to all in the 

                    Michiana area, the Pantry opens for drive-up pick up the second Wednesday of every month. 

                    We discovered this need in 2016 when some of our members realized you cannot get these                              essential items with other governmental assistance programs. In the bags patrons will find items such as paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, body wash, shampoo, deodorant, and other rotational cleaning supplies. No IDs are required but patrons must be present to receive the items.
