W h at Is Fai th Promise?

It’s a promise to God.

A promise to give a specific amount to missions through the missionary program at New Hope.

It’s a promise that requires faith

You must believe that without Jesus a person is lost (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). You must believe that we are responsible for sharing the message about Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:20). You must trust God to supply the material resources that will enable us to carry out His Great Commission (Zechariah 4:6).

It’s a personal commitment between you and the Lord. No one but the Lord will know what you have promised to give. No names are required.

It’s a blessing

Accepting the challenge to reach the lost will lead you to a closer walk with the Lord as you trust Him to do more through your life (Acts 20:35)

01

How Does It Work? A promise card will be given to you and we ask that you prayerfully determine what you, with God’s blessing, can commit to missions. This is to be a promise made once a year of what you will give for the coming year (January to December), whether you give per week, per month, or per year. This is a commitment made in addition to what you are giving to the church through the general fund, benevolence, etc. Each time you give your offering, mark on the offering envelope how your giving is to be divided between general fund, missions, etc. This is a corporate commitment where you join with other members of the New Hope family in supporting missionaries around the world as they endeavor to share the good news about Jesus with people of other cultures. This is why, on Faith Promise Sunday, the cards are collected and totaled, to see what we as a church have promised to do in the coming year for our missionaries. Our mission team will determine the missionaries we support and this total will let them make their plans for the coming year.

Guidelines For Missions 1. A mission or missionary shall be any person, group of persons, or agency that shall be

actively engaged in preaching or teaching Christ, or through whose labors the gospel of Christ is promoted; who, by the very nature of their work, cannot be self-supporting and must rely upon the Christian giving of churches and individuals.

2. In determining which particular ministries to support the missionary team shall consider the following criteria:

a. To maintain a balance between home and foreign missions

b. To acknowledge the various kinds of work needed under the following catergories: • Evangelism/Church Planting • Education/Leadership Training • Medical Assistance/Emergency Relief • Specialized Care – Disabled/Abused

c. T  o insure the mission supported will reflect the convictions and beliefs of New Hope Christian Church

d. To assess the financial responsibility and accountability of each ministry

e. To evaluate the purpose and strategy of each mission and their ability to achieve these f. T  o restrain the number of works supported to that which can be properly monitored and funded g. To establish a personal connection with the supported mission

02


How T o P r ay Fo r A M i s sio na ry A. Pray for their Spiritual Life 1. That they will have time to read the Word of God for their personal edification and time to pray 2. Pray for protection against discouragement and that God will put in their lives any fellowship and counsel from other Christians they may need.

B. Pray for Social Adjustments 1. For their ability to learn a new language, new customs, and a new culture. 2. For good interpersonal relationships with the nationals and with fellow missionaries. 3. Pray for their family, that God will strengthen their marriage and enable parents to raise godly children.

C. Pray for their Physical Needs 1. For their health, safety in travel, adaptation to a new climate and new foods. 2. For their ability to learn to transact business in a new culture and protection against disease.

D. Pray for their Ministry 1. That God will prepare the heart of the people with whom they have contact. 2. For the missionary’s boldness and skill in using the Word of God. 3. That their ministry will bear lasting fruit.

E. Pray for their Mental and Emotional Needs 1. Help in dealing with homesickness, culture shock, depression, mental fatigue and loneliness. 2. Pray for inner peace and stability.

Ch rist for Sao Luis

Earl & Ruth Anne Haubner are now completing 40 years of ministry in Brazil. Since 1973 they have lived in Goiana, a city of 1.5 million people located in the central part of this vast country. Their mission statement is, “to make disciples, make better disciples and make more disciples.” Their ministry in Goiana and the surrounding region has 50 churches with over 6,000 members and all of these congregations have national Brazilian preachers and leaders.

John and Ruth Navis have been missionaries to Sao Luis, Brazil since June of 1990. John’s first challenge was to learn the language so he could effectively minister to the people of Sao Luis. The church has seen steady growth in attendance at its weekly services as well as with its annual Vacation Bible School program.

Since the year, 2000, the Haubners have expanded the outreach of this mission to the north along the Amazon river. They use a boat equipped with medical and dental supplies and each month travel up one of the many tributaries of this mighty river to reach people who previously had no contact with the outside world. Bringing doctors, dentists, nurses, construction crews and evangelistic teams, the Haubners are bringing the hope of a better life and showing the people along the Amazon that it is Jesus who makes this abundant life possible.

In addition to taking Christ to Brazil, many of the churches in Brazil have now sent missionaries to other third world countries

John has several Bible study groups with men of the church and those he is seeking to evangelize and continues to train them to preach and teach. John is actively involved in teaching and preachVENEZUELA ing, and leads several mid-week bible studies. Ruth also continues to train members to teach and has two evangelist Bible studies. GUYANA

Mid-India Ch rist ian Se rvice s

The work that began with Aziel and Marian Jones continues through the lives of three of their sons and their respective families; Timothy, Philip and David. These three brothers have continued to minister to the mountain people of Costa Rica. The work includes Bible translation, teaching the written word in Cabecar and Bribri (local languages), teaching and ministering to the hearts of these people. They also battle practices of shamanism and tribal culture, and train them in vocational skills.

New Hope member Jack Folden is on the board of directors for this mission. If you have any questions or you are being led by the Holy Spirit to join in this harvest for the Kingdom of God, please contact Jack. There are several short term mission trips each year to this mission, it is a great way to get involved.

Home to 1.8 billion people India is the second most populous nation in the world. Jay Henry and his wife, Romola, work from the city of Damoh, located in the state of Madhya Pradesh which sits in the center of this large country. They share the gospel through a number of different ministries. With the Bethlehem Bible College they train young men to preach and be leaders in local churches. They help widows by teaching them skills so they can eventually support themselves and while being taught they provide their children with school supplies and clothes so they can attend school. They sponsor animal husbandry projects to help improve the economic conditions in the villages. The mission is furnishing cows, goats, chickens, and sewing machines to families in the village churches so they can sell milk and eggs and do sewing for others to earn money and be able to provide for their own. The mission has launched a number of preschools in the local villages and uses the schools as a platform not only to educate but to be a facility from which they can provide medical services too. Colossians 1:6 states, “…All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing…” and for a number of years, in spite of intense persecution from religious extremists of other faiths, the mission of Mid-India has grown and flourished under the direction of Jay & Romola Henry.

The focus of the ministry has been to identify key populated areas of New England that have potential for a thriving church. Once an area is identified a church planting team is recruited and put in place to start a church within 12 months. As a result of this plan hundreds of people now know Jesus Christ and are growing in their relationship with him. These churches are now lighthouses for Christ in their communities and offering a number of influential programs and support services to the spiritually lost.

Besides your prayers for Restoration House and its team of evangelists there are seasonal opportunities for you to assist in New England. If you are interested please let someone on New Hope’s staff know or contact Restoration House directly.

Restoration House was formed in 1996 by a consortium of existing New England churches committed to spreading the Gospel to communities throughout this critical and under-evangelized area in the Northeast. They knew that they could not accomplish this task by themselves and called Dan and Linda Clymer from the staff of Lincoln Christian College (now LCU) to lead the work. They were later joined by Curt and Linda Nordhielm, also from LCC, who have led the cross cultural outreach to the multiple nationalities represented in the Northeast region.

Disaster Ministry is the Mission’s newest ministry, formed in response to the tsunami, December 26th, 2004. Participants in the Disaster Ministry are volunteers from the churches of the Mission, church leaders from lay-people to elders to preachers who have personally experienced surviving a disaster and being a caregiver during that or following disasters. This means each knows how to witness for Jesus through leadership and organizing small groups of survivors to physically and spiritually transform during the chaotic time of a disaster. New Delhi

Ph ilipp ine Mission

Glen and Sherrie Russell have been serving in the country of Panama since August, 1997 and have been New Hope’s living link missionaries since May, 2001. In Panama they work with two different people groups. In the city of David they work with a church comprised mostly of Latin, Spanish speaking people. In the mountains Glen and Sherrie work with around twenty- five Ngobe churches. The Ngobe are a Native American indigenous people who speak their own language as well as Spanish.

Having grown up in a missionary family Jeannie Hoffman has spent the majority of her life in the Philippines. Her work is centered in the city of Manila (which is the capital city with a population of over ten million people) on the island of Luzon (which is the largest of the islands that comprise the Republic of the Philippines). She works with other missionary families to oversee the following ministries which have led to:

Glen and Sherrie’s ministry includes leadership training, Sunday school material distribution, preaching and teaching in the David church, coordinating projects and events in the indigenous churches, and meeting whatever needs present themselves, and they are varied and many.

There are opportunities for a short term mission trip to Panama. Each year New Hope assists the churches in Panama with a Vacation Bible School (VBS) program. This mission trip usually comprises of 10 people, lasts a week and takes place in the February time frame. Over the summer months, a “work” trip is usually planned. These trips are a great way to get to know our missionaries and the people of Panama. All trip participants always come backed blessed.

Wayne Murphy, Executive Director

Buckner’s in Tanzania

This mission began in 1954 by a native of Poland, Paul Bajko.

Don and Rochelle Buckner, along with their two kids, Danielle (5) and Joey (2 1/2), minister in Tanzania, East Africa since 2004. The Buckner’s are sent by Gateway Christian Church, St. Louis, Missouri, and serve with Haven of Peace Christian Church in the city of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It is an evangelistic, Bible-based, indigenous and self-sustaining church. Since 2004, there have been added 15 sister-churches or church plants in Tanzania and another 30 in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The dream is to see Christian churches planted all over Poland, churches that are self-supporting and reproducing. Currently they are supporting 35 ministers and one of these churches has just become self-supporting. Purchasing property and constructing/buying buildings is a challenge. Poland is a nation of Roman Catholics, but now there are approximately 2,500 people in worship regularly throughout the 37 Christian churches in Poland. They also have a far-reaching ministry on the radio in Polish, Russian, Ukrainian languages. The missions translate and publish Christian literature and send tons of clothing, medical supplies, and food to the people in Poland.

Our prayer: May the church in Poland continue to grow in faith, hope and love and may their witness bear much fruit for the kingdom of God.

The work primarily focuses on teaching, and assisting the churches in any areas of need: leadership training, training of children’s teachers, pastoral care, becoming self-sufficient, raising up the next generation of leaders, etc. Other activities include hosting short-term mission teams from the USA, visiting the village churches and visiting church members in their homes. Don serves as a church elder and teacher of the adult class as well as preaching in rotation. Rochelle has transitioned from being the only children’s teacher to guiding four national teachers in the children’s classes. They are also try to bring in teaching materials and special guest speakers to lead teaching seminars. The Buckner’s anticipate returning to the US for their next furlough around July 2010.

Alexander Christian Foundation (ACF) is a non-profit charitable scholarship foundation established in 1964 to encourage Indiana’s finest students into a full-time Christian ministry or the mission field upon graduation from Bible College. To qualify, the students must be residents of Indiana, members of and attend an independent Christian Church or Church of Christ, and attend school full time.

Since its inception, ACF has given scholarships to over 700 students, totalling more than 1.5 million dollars. Most financial support for ACF comes from individuals and churches of Indiana. ACF also holds an annual golf outing to provide more scholarship funds. New Hope member Jerry Hurst is on the board of directors. New Hope has also started an endowment fund through ACF in memory of Clyde Bymaster. Clyde was a long time elder at Traders Point Christian Church when his large Boone County bible study group was encouraged to start a church in Boone County. This bible study group became New Hope Christian Church in 1973. Clyde served as an Elder and teacher until his death in 1996. He was always encouraging “the flock” in their Christian walk and it is appropriate that his name would appear on a fund used to train future preachers and missionaries.

The camp schedule is at the Youth Center and we challenge our youth each year to try this camping experience.

Purdue Campus House

After 65 years of service Lincoln Christian College & Seminary became Lincoln Christian University on September 1, 2009. This name change reflects the reorganization of the college into three schools: a college with undergraduate programs for traditional college students, a graduate school focused on graduate theological programs for traditional seminarians, and the new Hargrove School which offers professionally-oriented undergraduate and graduate programs for working adults. While LCU has not changed its purpose or focus on preparation for ministry, these changes will allow the college to expand its impact under the unifying and highly respected name of “university.”

Purdue Christian Campus House is a campus ministry proclaiming a saving knowledge of the grace of God in Christ at Purdue University since 1966. We are a community of Christ followers from diverse backgrounds devoted to the Worship of God, the Word of God, the people of God, and giving Witness to Christ in God’s World.

One of the more exciting parts of this plan is the establishment of the Hargrove School, named in honor of Earl C. Hargrove, founder of the college. Originally known as the “LincUp” program, this program already has extension sites in Danville, IL and Las Vegas, NV where students are able to complete degrees in specialty areas. This model is taking Christian education to the people to make it more accessible and affordable for those who cannot leave their current setting to pursue undergraduate or graduate work. LCU continues its unique educational approach to training church leaders by building its core curriculum around the Christian worldview. The school also maintains its work with ministries around the world by sending students on mission trips and service projects throughout the year. With this in mind, LCU is dependent on the partnership it enjoys with churches like New Hope in order to better steward resources on the campus and provide opportunities such as ministry internships for its students. The college thanks New Hope for its ongoing support and looks forward to years of partnership together.

At the heart of Campus House is a desire to reach Purdue students with the good news of Christ, to prepare them to love and serve God with their whole lives, and then to mobilize them out, literally all over the world, with the compassion and truth of Jesus to change the world for His glory. Our goals are to help each student that walks through our doors pursue an intimate, dynamic relationship with God, to encourage them to practice using their individual gifts for the Kingdom, and to instill God’s heart for the Nation’s in every student.

Ministry Activities: Campus House provides a diverse ministry program to the students

at Purdue including: 4 Sunday worship services, large group Bible studies and small community groups, relational ministry and fellowship, local and global mission and service projects, community housing, counseling and discipleship, and a coffee house ministry.
