Mexico - Iglesia Emmanuel Church
We support the ministries of our sister church in Juarez, Mexico in outreach to their community. Short term missions teams from BPC have helped with construction projects and outreach ministries such as VBS. We currently serve as a respite location for their pastor and his family and for other church leaders. Donations of clothing, small appliances, and furniture from BPC are appreciated to help provide for needs in their community. (Note: As safety issues improve, missions trips to Juarez may again be possible.)
Romania Mercy Ministries - Diane Pulvermiller and Melanie Dewey
Mercy Ministries embraces youth from hard places and equips them to thrive in every facet of life. We work with abandoned youth and their caregivers, primarily focused on young-adult orphans in western Romania. There we have a long-term, non-residential mission which began as a summer-camp program, and now provides skills training, leadership development, spiritual direction, and support through our Leadership Development Center, and long-term relationships, to help our youth transition to young adulthood and realize their full potential in Romanian society. Our relationships with many of the youth span a decade or two and we value investment in individual lives. Diane Pulvermiller is the Bergen Park Church contact and Co-Director, along with Melanie Dewey, of Mercy Ministries. To find out more, visit http://www.embracemercy.org.
