  • Global Gateway Ministry Partners

    London, England

    Partner: Greg & Ellen Kingry

    Champion: Colt Martin


    God called us to cross-cultural ministries over 30 years ago. Along that journey we've had the opportunity to serve in the US and internationally among multiple people groups sharing the gospel, ministering to the needy, as well as training and equipping new believers to lives for Christ and to make disciples among the nations. Now God has given us, through Global Gateway Ministry Partners, the opportunity to evangelize the nations through gateway cities like London. With our partners, we are working in 3 primary ways: to see healthy Gospel-driven local churches grow and multiply; to support families and churches through innovative Christian schools, and theological ministry training; and, to build a culture in which the Church and society can flourish, and individuals have freedom to live out their values. We believe that as "healthy" churches grow, they will reach their neighbors. And in a city like London filled with over 300 languages spoken daily, reaching our neighbors becomes a gateway to reaching the nations.

  • Living Water Community Transformation

    South Sudan

    Partner and Champion: Ann & Bala Rao


    Living Water Community Transformation (LWCT) is a faith-based community development organization. We exist to help communities in South Sudan to become spiritually grounded in Christ, physically healthier, and economically self-sustaining. In 2002, the Lord put a burden on my heart for the suffering people of war-torn South Sudan. I lead our first trip to South Sudan in 2003. It was a medical team made of volunteers from several Churches. By 2006 some of these volunteers were able to raise enough funds to build a small hospital in Akot, South Sudan. We soon began teaching preventative healthcare & Bible stories to the Sudanese. We started with 25 women in 2007. Today, there are groups meeting in 8 communities with approximately 800 participants. In 2006, we started a primary school with one teacher, with a 7th grade education, and 25 children. Today, we have two primary schools with 795 students. Our Christian schools are producing the top scores on the national exams. LWCT has started 18 churches and operates two pastor training centers. Weekly men's and women's discipleship groups are meeting in 8 villages. A 22 acre demonstration farm, with solar powered irrigation, is teaching new farming techniques, and is producing food to sell in the market. Large church gardens, school gardens, women's ministry gardens, and home gardens are producing enough food to sustain our communities, while the rest of the country is suffering a famine. A goat rearing business and a sewing school has empowered women to start small businesses. The ministry is completely staffed by 70 indigenous people from their own community. LWCT has sponsored 7 university students and provides scholarships for 12 secondary school students. We have no paid staff in the US. To God alone be the glory!

  • Trezó 

    Cayes-Jacmel, Haiti

    Director: Bob & Kay VanFleteren

    Champion: Angel Ortiz


    In 2011, Bob and Kay VanFleteren, along with another couple in Middle Tennessee, formed the non-profit Trezò to provide a Christian elementary education to some of Haiti’s poorest children. Haiti is the poorest country in the west and the community we serve fights unemployment of over 75% and high illiteracy. 80% of the adults did not complete Grade 6 and 20% did not even complete Grade 2! Even more distressing is that much of the rural population we serve had been living trapped in a world of dark superstition and voodoo practices. In January 2012, we established a free Christian elementary school in the village. Today, we have grown to 136 students in Grades K-6. We employ 11 Haitian Christian staff and the children are taught Creole, French, Math, Science, Geography, Social Studies, and History. They also get daily Bible lessons, worship, and prayer time. We estimate that after 7 years of service, 75% of our rural village has professed Christ! Trezò operates with no overhead and pays no American’s expenses; almost all of the money we raise goes towards operating expenses, such as teacher salaries, training, books, uniforms, and over 20,000 meals each year.
