We’re blessed to work alongside some amazing individuals who have taken their commitment to Jesus out into the world as long-term missionaries. Cumulatively, these individuals have given decades of their lives improving communities, serving others, and spreading the Gospel to individuals who otherwise may never be exposed to it.
Through their work, our church has been able to expand our global efforts to areas we may not have been able to reach without their selflessness. Get to know some of our missionaries and learn about the initiatives they’re working on to expand God’s Kingdom.
Phil and Heidi are Kansas City natives who moved to Israel in 1989, and have been living in Israel ever since as missionaries. They have five children who studied at the Reali Hebrew School in Haifa and grew up Israeli.
They have been through hardships in Israel, but God has used those challenges to open doors for them to proclaim His name. They have served with a local Messianic Jewish congregation, Beit Eliyahu, since the year 2000. Phil serves as an associate pastor at Beit Eliyahu and serves the congregation in numerous practical and administrative capacities.
Israel is a Jewish nation with only about two percent of the population being Christian. Today, Beit Eliyahu is home to over 100 Israeli believers in Jesus!
