Our Mission is to Proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord to everyone: locally, nationally and internationally.

 

Locally:

  • In Scotts Bluff County, we see ourselves as a missions outpost to our immediate area. It wouldn’t make any sense to try to reach the world with the message of Jesus without starting here at home. Our local partnerships include DOVES, the CAPWN food drive, a monthly soup kitchen, backpack program and Salvation Army bell-ringing.

 

Nationally:

  • 3:18 Ministries

    3:18 is a mission team in Globe, AZ working to show God’s love to the people of the nearby San Carlos Apache Reservation. Tory & Kara Satter and Robert and Liz Crews have been moved by God over the past 15 years to share his love and hope on the reservation. Whether it’s building new homes, doing repair work, or teaching Bible clubs & parenting classes, they work with the tribe to put God’s love into action. In 2017, our student ministries team was able to spend a week working with 3:18 in AZ building the interior of a new home for a family and teaching & playing with local kids at a Bible club each afternoon. It was a great experience being the hands and feet of Jesus as He loved the people of San Carlos through our WestWay students.
  • Summit Christian College

Our missions strategy includes preparing the next generation of church leaders. In addition to offering a scholarship to any WestWay student attending Bible college, a portion of our regular support goes to Summit Christian College here in Gering. Summit students have the opportunity to connect with the faculty and staff on a level that is impossible in most colleges, and they benefit from the global ministry experiences of their professors and immediate opportunity to apply what they’re taught in the classroom.

Our giving helps to enable Summit to offer a Biblically sound education without requiring students to take on overwhelming debt loads in order to graduate.

 

Internationally:

  • Haiti

The aim of Northwest Haiti Christian Mission is to “provide sustainable, real support to Haitians in need, enriching their lives both spiritually and physically.” Their website does a great job of filling in the details, but we’ve loved being able to be a part of their work.

Each year, we send teams to NWHCM to help in their medical ministry… or one of the orphanages… or a new church plant… or the elderly care center… or the Bible college… (seriously the list of what is going on through NWHCM is awesome and you should check out their site!) Click here to learn more nwhcm.org

  • Southeast Asia

Myanmar Christian Mission is bringing the eternal hope of Jesus Christ to the people of the southeast Asian nation of Myanmar (formerly called Burma).

The mission involves literature services, medical services, and leadership training. Native evangelist, Dr. Joshua Leme currently serves as MCM’s director and is instrumental in the operations of Eastern Bible Institute of Myanmar, training local leaders to establish and lead churches throughout Myanmar.

You can learn more about this mission to Myanmar on the MCM website.

  • South Africa

Mission to South Africa has a history of evangelizing, church planting, and caring for community needs since Stu and Marilyn Cook began their work in Johannesburg in the late 60’s. This legacy continues through their various Bible education works and efforts to care for and love the people around them.

Their Lethabo Kids Club is the source of the best meal of the week and the best news they’ll ever hear for about 800 kids in Leseding. Despite a 70% unemployment rate in the community, these kids are finding hope as they connect to Jesus and His people.
