Missions

At One Heart, we believe that every Christian is called to be a missionary. In fact, as Christ’s followers, we are missionaries by design simply because we are indwelt by His Spirit, and His heart compels us to complete the work He started. As His HEART (Hands Extended and Revealing Truth), Christ is relying on us to reach the world around us – locally and globally – with the truth of His saving grace. As a Missions Ministry, we are committed to pursuing Christ’s passion for reaching the lost and ministering to those in need. Currently, our church partners with several local ministries and our members support them through service projects, volunteer time and material donations. In addition, we have strong relationships with churches in several countries including Romania, Ukraine, Argentina, Guatemala and South Africa. One Heart members make yearly short-term trips to these locations and God continues to move in mighty ways! For more information about missions opportunities, contact Chester Whisonant, Missions Pastor.

ELAM MINISTRIES
www.elam.com
Elam was founded in 1988 by senior Iranian church leaders with a vision to serve the growing church in the Iran region. From the beginning, Elam’s passion was to train and equip Iranian Christians to reach and disciple their country men. In 1990 six emerging leaders arrived in England from Iran to begin their fulltime ministry training. They lived in a small, two-bedroom flat and used the kitchen as a classroom. Since then, Elam has seen many years of God’s faithfulness. By God’s grace, the ministry is growing and is being used to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region in a significant way.
