Missions

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations"

Matthew 28:19

Island Church supports the following people involved in overseas Missions: undisclosed (China), Dov and Olga Bikas (Israel), undisclosed (Turkey), Kevin and Bonnie Oberg (Senegal), Prophet Emmanuel Amoah (Ghana), Summer Mascim (Romania) and International Justice Mission who seek to help those involved in child trafficking. Our goal is to support a few ministries and do it well rather than supporting many in a smaller way. Giving to these missions as offerings above our tithes is both a blessing and a privilege. We welcome and encourage financial support for these missions.

Missions We Support

Ghana, West Africa

Prophet Emmanuel Amoah

Prophet Emmanuel Amoah from Ghana, West Africa, has been a friend of Island Church since 2003. His gifting and insights have brought revelation and encouragement to us. Every year he hosts an Apostolic and Leaders conference to encourage and equip leaders of Churches.

Through our relationship with Prophet Emmanuel, we have an open door to the incredible opportunity of sowing into the ministry of providing wells to people who have never had clean water in the remotest places of the Upper West and East area of Ghana.

Because of the generosity of the people of Island Church, we have completed 30 wells, 6 more are in the pipeline and 5 more are in planning stages. Each well costs $5,000

Romania

Summer Mascim

Summer Mascim has an amazing ministry to the poorest of the poor in Romania, where they run a weekly soup kitchen for children, host after school programs and care for so many in need. Their new miracle building will serve as a base for services on Sunday.

Summer is the daughter of Jon and Paulette Staab who are members of Island Church. Jon also serves on the Island Church Elder team. 

Senegal

Kevin & Bonnie Oberg

Kevin & Bonnie Oberg served at Island Church for three years as youth pastors prior to going to Burkina Faso and then on to Senegal, where they have served for many years.
They have seen God work amazingly in the villages with many becoming Christians.
We support them through the CMA Great Commission Fund.
Our regular giving keeps them in the field.
Kevin has recently accepted the position of developer of teams.

Dov & Olga Bikas

Israel

Dov and Olga Bikas serve in Israel where they help those caught up in drugs and sex trafficking, as well as overseeing a growing Russian congregation. They have opened up a couple of Rehab Centers, one in Haifa and the other more recently in Beersheba (the city of Abraham). Dov is a great evangelist and they are seeing the fruit for their labor.

China

Undisclosed

The missionaries we support in China do a variety of things (English classes, working with professionals and university students, business projects) and are seeing great fruit from their labor with people committing their lives to Jesus. Island Church has sent several teams to China in the past to support and encourage the work there. Please pray for continued safety, provision and blessing of our missionary family in China.

Turkey

Undisclosed

The missionary family we support in Turkey is focused on ministering to students. They have seen many students give their lives to Jesus over the last few years. Please pray for continued safety, provision and blessing of our missionary family in Turkey.
