“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said “Here I am! Send me.”
Bergen Park Church actively reaches out to many International Missions around the globe with prayer and financial support, including the following.
Bergen Park Church supports Kris Doneff who serves alongside Kristi Huseby through ReachGlobal, ministering to women in many countries throughout Eurasia and Africa. These worldwide trips provide sustainable investments in Christian discipleship and training for pastors’ wives and women in leadership.
Tony and Coco Nuñez
Bergen Park Church supports the ministries of our sister church Iglesia Emmanuel in Juarez, Mexico pastored by Tony and Coco Nuñez. Short term Missions teams from Bergen Park Church have helped the Nuñez family with construction projects and outreach ministries. In addition to regular financial and prayer support, donations of clothing, small appliances, prayer scarves, children’s Christmas gifts, and furniture have helped provide for needs in their community.
Diane Pulvermiller and Melanie Dewey
Bergen Park Church supports Diane Pulvermiller and Melanie Dewey as they serve Romania Mercy Ministries in embracing youth from hard places and equipping them to thrive in every facet of life. They work with abandoned youth and their caregivers, primarily focused on young-adult orphans in western Romania. There they 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 their Leadership Development Center, and long-term relationships, to help youth transition to young adulthood and realize their full potential in Romanian society. Their relationships with many of the youth span a decade or two and they value investment in individual lives.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a year-long Mission supported by Bergen Park Church. For the first nine months of the year, we collect items that can go into Christmas shoe boxes. These special boxes include such items as winter gloves, hair accessories, watches, stuffed animals, hygiene items, toys, clothing, school supplies, and games. After collecting for nine months, the church enjoys a huge packing party to prepare the boxes in a festive fellowship.
Jonathan and Meta Nelson
Bergen Park Church supports Jonathan and Meta Nelson, missionaries to Spain through ReachGlobal. Jon directs and teaches through an online Bible School for the Spanish speaking world, as well as recording devotionals and prayer for the evangelistic Internet radio station, Radio Anglicana. Meta teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Both Jon and Meta are active in outreach through their local church in Zaragosa, Spain and through a community music ministry. Their home is a welcome place for many Spaniards and internationals alike.
