GOING FROM 56TH ST

TO MATTHEW 28

We are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus by following His example to love, mend, train and send people out -- into our communities and to the ends of the earth. We do this in partnership with fellow believers  -- in prayer, relationship, and financial support -- not only here in the Pacific Northwest (through local missionaries and local outreaches like Back to School Jam, Halloween, Holiday Hope), but also in places all over the world like Thailand, the United Kingdom, Columbia, Haiti, the MENACA region, and Kenya. 


Our missions team is taking a more active role in the lives of our missionaries and we ask that you consider partnering with us. To hear their full stories, click here.

local missions

  • rich + christa clark

    Rich + Christa Clark are a blended family and thriving couple from right here in Tacoma, Washington. They've been volunteering in the marriage + relationship space for over a decade and have recently come on board with FamilyLife as full-time local missionaries. Both Rich + Christa were previously married and experienced divorces they didn't want and know the pain and ripple effect of the trauma that divorce brings. The Clarks want to help everyone they can, not only avoid the tragedy they experienced, but have a thriving marriage full of JOY! Their mission with Familylife is to strengthen marriages and families in a culture that's losing hope. They want to raise up the foundation of many generations, in Jesus' name. (Isa 58:12)

  • family renewal shelter

    Family Renewal Shelter (FRS) is a program that focuses on helping desperate domestic violence victims (women (and even men) and their child(ren)) in severe abusive situations find safety and freedom by fleeing their perpetrator and going into hiding. Founded in 1986, FRS provides first responder emergency services to those in fear of being killed or seriously injured by their intimate partners. Once in the safety of FRS's peaceful refuge, they can begin to feel safe and loved. Not being forced to live in daily survival mode allows critical thinking, planning, and even dreaming to return. They can then develop their personal safety and relocation plan with the help of advocates.

  • PRIT + DANA ADAMS

    Pritchard (Prit) + Dana live in Haiti serving with Rehoboth Ministries. As of this January, they will have served in Haiti for 40 years. They were sent out from their local church in North Carolina and moved to Port-au-Prince to teach in a Christian Day-school. Since 1988, four churches have been with elementary schools with elementary schools -- three of which have a feeding program (which means every school day students get to enjoy a hot meal), thanks to the generous aid of the Orphans Promise Ministry. Additionally, there is a 4-year Leadership Training Institute which has graduated eleven classes of students. 

  • IAN + Jen Gooch

    Ian + Jen live in the United Kingdom where Ian is the lead pastor of Full Life Church. Founded in 2000, Full Life Church is a family church that desires to engage and equip people of all ages. Their heart is to see lives transformed by the radical and exciting, life-changing message of the Bible and that church becomes what it should be — enthusiastic, relevant, and relational.

  • SHAN + LINDSEY MAHAWON

    Shan + Lindsey and their two girls live in Thailand where they serve with Trumpets of Christ International. They have been serving together in Thailand for eight years, though Shan grew up in Thailand as a missionary kid. The Mahawons feel called to developing young leaders to reach their own communty for Christ, with an emphasis in Thailand amongst the Thai and Shan people, who are less than 1% Christian. For seven years, Shan and Lindsey directed Faith Village Children’s Home and pastored a local church in rural northern Thailand. Though they still oversee those works, they recently have moved to plant a church in Chiang Mai City. The church is a little over one year old, is growing, and full of young, potential leaders.

  • RYAN + TAMARAH MCINTIRE

    Ryan + Tamarah McIntire live in Kenya with their four children: Cassidy, Kylah, Logan and Maisie where they serve with Agape Children's Ministry. Agape’s mission focuses on reconciliation of children to God and to their families through the transformational love of Jesus. Agape rescues children living on the streets or other at-risk situations, provides rehabilitation though individualized counseling and spiritual care, then places children back into their communities while discipling and encouraging the family through consistent social worker visits. The McIntires believe that each child and their family can be redeemed through Christ, no matter what they have experienced or what cultural identities they have taken on and that this gospel-centered approach to social work greatly increases the success rate of families staying together in healthy relationships -- restoring them to the healthy image bearers God wants them to be. 

  • CULTURAL IMMERSIONS*

    Cultural immersion teams are taking short-term missions trips into the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia (MENACA). This is a region of the world that is predominately Muslim. Here members of these short-term teams will experience the nations, the people, food, and culture. The hope is to build a team who is actively praying for this region of the world and the “workers” who are on the front lines in a typically hard-to-reach for the Kingdom.

  • JOHN*

    John has found fulfillment in short-term missions. He enjoys bringing groups of people to the depths of the earth to train and equip local workers. He has currently “worked” in five different countries (and counting!), most recently being those within the MENACA region.

  • FOURSQUARE DISASTER RELIEF

    Foursquare Disaster Relief (FDR) serves those affected by natural disasters, diseases or war worldwide by partnering with local churches, providing spiritual care and meeting physical needs. FDR is led by Chad Isenhart, who has served as operations chief, international response director, and now as director. 

WILL YOU JOIN US?

There are a two ways you can partner with us as we come alongside these ten missionaries and the organizations they are a part of. First, we ask that you join us in praying for our missionaries, their families, and those with whom they work. Second, we ask that you take some time over the next few weeks to pray about supporting our missionaries in a financial way. Once you've spent time in prayer, we ask that you take a moment to fill out the pledge card (either online or in person). This will help us determine our overall missions budget for this next year.
