LCC is connected to a global community of believers. Our purpose in “missions” is to participate with the Lord and His church globally in the spread of the gospel and in equipping believers.  We do this in a variety of ways through prayer, sharing of resources with missionaries, and deploying people on short and long term mission trips. Out of each dollar our church body gives, 18 cents is designated for missions.  Here’s how we use these funds.

 

 

Trey Bosecker — Amor Ministries

Trey grew up in Longview Christian Church and graduated from Hallsville High School in 2008.  As a member of the LCC youth group, Trey participated in several short-term mission trips that were led by Amor.Trey’s role is moving the ministry forward by leading groups, building relationships, improving operational procedures, and sharing his knowledge of the trades.

Since 1980, Amor has been working to keep families together by providing adequate housing.  Part of Amor’s mission statement is to “Eradicate Spiritual and Physical Poverty.”  Amor believes in doing that by working through the local church to build houses alongside families in need as an important step in solving both those issues.  This ministry has changed the lives of almost 17,000 families.

Haitian Impact Christian Ministries

HICM was founded in 1993 by Frantz Previl, for the sole purpose of having a lasting impact on Haiti. Since that time it has planted over 20 churches and established 9 Christian schools connected to the ministry. HICM also organizes seminars twice a year for preachers and church leaders to study theology, doctrine and church growth.  They also host youth retreats in various locations with an emphasis on salvation, Christian principles, personal growth, and evangelism.

HICM has developed and maintains a child sponsorship program that provides tuition, books, uniform, supplies, medical attention and one meal a day.

This home grown ministry also makes an effort to meet the medical needs of the community. It has a permanent clinic in Port-au-Prince and holds mobile clinics in other locations across the country.  As people wait to see a physician, they are told about the Great Physician and some are won to the Lord.

Ninos de Mexico

Since 1967, Niños de Mexico has been giving life to these children one child at a time. Many of these children have grown up to become doctors, ministers, teachers, and more – all helping to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in Mexico. Today, they are actively involved in sharing Jesus with the children and people of Mexico through their children’s homes, Christian schools, medical outreach, and church planting.

The Greater Mexico City Area is one of the largest urban areas in the world, with an estimated population ranging from 19.2 million to 30 million people. In this city alone, there are hundreds of thousands of street children. Some have been orphaned. Others have been abandoned. Still, others are abused. All need the love of Jesus.

Ninos de Mexico operates four children’s homes. With Christian house parents, their kids, and 11-19 children, Ninos homes are truly loving and caring places for the children to grow and learn the love of Jesus.
