International Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Our church has nine mission partners with ministries as diverse as providing trauma healing for victims of abuse, translating the Bible into national languages, teaching in a school for missionary children, helping nationals build sustainable businesses and using agriculture to increase crop production—all with the overlay of helping people meet and follow Jesus.


Get Involved with our Mission Partners

Thornapple’s International Missions Team exists to “make disciples of every ethnic group” (Matt. 28:19-20) by supporting our Mission Partners through prayer and missionary care. Within our church body we provide mission education and opportunities for service cross-culturally.

If you are interested in receiving newsletters from our mission partners, please contact the Global Missions team and we will add you to the list. If you are only interested in specific partners, let us know; otherwise we will forward updates from all those supported by Thornapple as they are received.

If you have an interest in missions, we invite you to join our team or visit one of our meetings. Email for more information.
