Our global partners are one of the key ways we walk out our vision to advance the kingdom of Christ to the nations. They are categorized in two primary ways. We have Summit Crossing family members who have been sent out by the church to live long term among the nations. Second, there are organizations who have a mission and vision to advance the kingdom of Christ to the nations through short term trips, discipleship, training pastors and local leaders. We also partner with those bringing opportunities to share the Gospel through meeting physical needs such as clean water, discipleship, and training pastors and local leaders.
Our vision is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in San José, Costa Rica and fulfill the great commission.
- Starting our new life together as a married couple (just married in March 2016).
- We are looking for a new church and need direction from God.
- Gonzalo’s dream is to go to seminary school; please pray for God’s timing, deciding on the right seminary, and God’s financial provision.
- We always see fruit when we go downtown to share the gospel. Many people are receptive to the gospel of Jesus Christ and make him Lord of their lives.
- Homes of Hope is a ministry partner of ours. Recently, we built a house for a young couple who have been walking with the Lord and have the desire to be married. The team that built the house is also giving them a wedding! It is so exciting to see God at work in the families of this needy community!
David and Jessica are currently leading the Child Development Program and the Medical Clinic. The Child Development Program at Abaana’s Hope is designed to give vulnerable kids a solid Biblical foundation to make a positive change in their homes and to lead the next generation.
- As we take over the Child Development Program we would have wisdom and discernment
- That God would continue to be gracious in our transition to Northern Uganda
- That our Pastor Training Center which is training pastors in refugee camps would continue to establish an abiding network of Gospel-Centered, bible-saturated, African-led churches
- We are so thankful that God has allowed us to be a small part of Four Corners Ministries since 2012, and to see the fruits of many peoples labors over the years, including seeing the power of the Gospel to turn a witchdoctor into a Christ-follower!
Our primary "ends of the earth" and "Samaria" calling is that of working alongside the national church in making disciples who make multiplying disciples of the unreached peoples and people groups of Maharashtra State, India and the country of Rwanda nestled within the Horn of Africa. In our "Jerusalem and Judea" calling, we desire to "be" disciples who "make" multiplying disciples as we obey the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:37-40) and obey the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).
- Pray we love God and love others as God loves us.
- Pray for God’s wisdom as we make decisions.
- Pray that we are the blessing to His bride that Jesus desires and intercedes we be.
God has opened the heavens and poured out His salvation in over 4000 Maharashtra State villages in the last four years, and we have survived the "scare" that we may not be allowed back into India by now reentering twice in the last three (3) months.

The CornerStone Initiative
CornerStone comes alongside people who are trapped in material poverty, and addresses socioeconomic and racial inequities through healthy relationships formed in financial literacy and jobs readiness classes. They are some of the best in the city at ‘helping without hurting,’ and recognizing that everyone has something to bring to the table and something we can learn from each other. Their classes provide an opportunity for the materially poor and those cheering them on as their ‘allies’ to begin relationships where both are transformed into greater flourishing, all centered around Jesus and his transforming work.
Fostering Hope exists to pray, love, and serve families involved with DHR within North Alabama. This is done by seeing our church body rise up to holistically serve and pray for our community – including those within our church body directly serving in the foster system or our local caseworkers & volunteers.
Our desire for Fostering Hope is to live out the gospel by pouring into the entire foster system including supporting foster children, foster families, biological families, CAJAs (Court Appointed Juvenile Advocate), and caseworkers, educating the church body on foster care and pointing families the eternal hope in Christ every step of the way.

Community of Hope
Community of Hope is building a tiny home community for the chronically homeless to live, work, and find healing in community. They are in the initial fundraising and land-buying phase, so monetary donations are a great way to come alongside them right now in order to meet long-term needs for our homeless population. There is also a new way to volunteer with COH through an initiative called Restoration Works, which is an opportunity to build relationships with their homeless participants and sell goods they make at monthly craft nights.
