REACH Updates



During REACH 2015 we had missionaries and mission agencies representing Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and Ends of the Earth. As a part of REACH, we asked the missionaries/agencies keep us up-to-date on what God is doing in their part of the world. Check out what's happening:

The International Leadership Institute - Eli Suddarth in Cameroon

UCUMC has begun a partnership with the International Leadership Institute that started from REACH 2015. This year we sent Eli Suddarth and Lindsay Gallegly to Cameroon to be a part of training for church planters in Cameroon, Africa. 

The Fletcher Family - Ecuador (One Mission Society): 

From our REACH Faith Promises, we are now supporting the Fletcher family as they begin their new adventure in Ecuador with One Mission Society.  They are planning to have enough funding to go to language school in April.  Read more about their calling and their journey by checking out their website www.fletchersteps.org.

Farrell Burton - Nicaragua (The Hope Project)

This year, Farrell feels God is calling him to focus on VISION - not only to see those around him, but to respond and to move to action. Click Here to check out what God is doing in Nicaragua through the Hope Project. Learn more about the Hope Project Here

In July, UCUMC will be sending a team to serve with the Hope Project in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. Please keep this team in your prayers as they prepare and travel to serve the people in Nicaragua. 

Norival Trindade - The International Leadership Institute

The International Leadership Institute trains leaders all over the world to help accelerate the spread of the Gospel. Norival and his wife are currently serving in Cuba, partnering with local pastors and churches to train leaders in the community. Check out what's happening there:

 

The Calling to REACH Around the Corner and Around the World

REACH 2015 inspired many people in our congregation to GO where God called. Check out some of their stories below.

Frances Surgenor - The Calling to Go to Honduras: In February 2016, Frances Surgenor traveled to Honduras on a medical mission trip with Friends of Barnabas (FOB). Check out her story and see how God impacted her life through serving  the people of Honduras. 

Drew Nivens - Hands on Work: After REACH 2015 Drew felt called to find a tangible to help with an agency spreading the Gospel to others. Check out his story of how God fulfilled his desire to spread the Gospel. 

Anne Churchill - God is In Control: In July 2016, Anne and 4 others from UCUMC, traveled to Matagalpa, Nicaragua to work with the Hope Project. Read her story to see how God worked in her heart during the trip.
