Global Missions

Our One Heart Church missions theme for 2024 is Follow Your Heart – By Faith, Through Love. Ephesians 3:17 says “…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love…” One Heart Church has the blessing of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with people around the world. Since it’s beginning in 2005, OHC has carried teams to Romania, Ukraine, Italy, Argentina, Guatemala, Honduras, Tanzania, England and the Dominican Republic. We have witnessed God move in miraculous ways as many have come to know Jesus as their Savior and untold thousands has been raised for mission causes. You can join us in prayer for our upcoming global mission trips.

2024 Global Trips

OHCMISSIONS is committed to sharing the Gospel both locally and globally. We are excited to announce three mission trips for 2024 currently. (We do anticipate adding an additional trip later.) Please notice information below regarding these three trips. If you are interested and want to know more information we ask that you email Missions Pastor, Chester Whisonant. 

Dominican Republic 2024
March 2-9, 2024
Just about an hour outside of the large city of Santiago, Dominican Republic, lies the picturesque town of Jarabacoa. Known as “The City of the Everlasting Spring,” the journey there will take you into the mountains. You will travel up where it is much cooler and gorgeous. The Central Mountain range and Jarabacoa provide sweeping landscapes perfect for a wonderful medical mission. Medical mission trips here last one week. Immediately upon arrival at the Mission of Hope (MOH) compound, you will be greeted with warm smiles and excitement as the MOH staff help provide great food and lodging. The MOH staff will also help prepare for the week. After church and orientation on Sunday, you will settle into four days of clinic. It is all hands on deck as we seek to provide spiritual care and also physical care. There is a great bonus to working in Jarabacoa and with MOH – great translators! We love getting to know them and working alongside them. We are looking for doctors, dentists, nurses and members of the health community to go. If you are not a doctor, dentist or nurse, do not worry. There is still much to do that week at the clinic. If God prompts you to go to the Dominican Republic, He will fulfill that prompting 100%! We are praying for more missionaries to come to The Land of the Everlasting Spring to serve Jesus in 2024. Please email Pastor Chester Whisonant for more information about the Dominican Republic. 

Romania 2024
PROJECTED DATE: June 30-July 10, 2024
Romanians love their country and many can see why. From the Black Sea, to the rolling hills outside Resita, it is gorgeous and breathtaking. OHC has been going on mission to Romania longer than any other place. Our ministry has been centered 45 miles east of Timisoara in a town called Lugoj. This area is known as the Banat region and more specifically, the Banat Valley. Our mission in Romania is unique in other ways. Our team comprises missionaries from three other churches. We need this many missionaries to accomplish the large work in Romania. We helped to start and maintain the largest Christian school in Europe, Grace Christian School. We have worked extensively for years in the surrounding villages and in multiple orphanages. Our host churches, Grace Baptist Church, Efrata Baptist Church and Providence Church along with our host Pastors, Bebe Ciausu, Beni Indru and Samy Tutac, welcome us each year with open arms. These three churches and Pastors know that Romanians are open to the Gospel. They consider our time among them to be very strategic. The scope of impact in Romania includes almost every type of ministry. This includes encouraging orphans, engaging local churches and ministering among Romanians. We are praying for more missionaries to come with us to Romania – The Land of Beauty and Unity. Please email Pastor Chester Whisonant for more information about Romania. 

Tanzania 2024
PROJECTED DATE: September 1-10, 2024
To say that the people of Tanzania are resilient would be a huge understatement. They thrive on hard work, ingenuity and hustle. In addition to those qualities they possess a love for their country and soft hearts. This means they are open to the Gospel. The people of Tanzania also live in one of the most gorgeous places on earth. The sun shines bright each day until it creeps slowly behind the horizon. These people and place form a perfect union and provide a wonderful backdrop for a mission trip. One Heart Church (OHC) has been going there annually since 2011. Our host church, Warehouse Christian Center, and our hostess Patience Mitimingi welcome us each year. We have been working to encourage four orphanages in the area. They are Buloma, Sifa, Amani and Green Pastures. As we visit, the children run to meet us with smiles on their faces. We spend time with them playing, teaching, singing and often sharing a meal together. OHC has been instrumental in providing many necessities for each orphanage including drinking water and clothes. In addition to ministering in orphanages we have been working to strengthen local churches and local Pastors. We do this in a variety of ways such as training events, conferences and regular church gatherings. We are praying for more missionaries to come with us in ministry to the land of the forever sun. Please email Pastor Chester Whisonant for more information about Tanzania. 

England 2024
We are looking to make a trip to England to minister alongside OHC members and International Mission Board Missionaries, Alex and Jess Garcia.
