When Prayer and Partnership Lead

By Bill MacLeod

bill macleod, mission connexion, executive directorThe first-ever Prayer ConneXion event in May was a successful display of teamwork, and 115 individuals representing over 40 local churches paid their registration and turned out to hear Dr. Dick Eastman, Director of Every Home for Christ; Pastor Dee Duke of Jefferson Baptist Church; and a host of workshops led by prayer-motivated mission leaders. This project has been several years in the making and has been the prayer and desire of the Team,

Ordinary Yes; Extraordinary God!

By Peggy Kinkade, Missions Team Leader, Helvetia Community Church, Hillsboro


Peggy KinkadeFifteen years ago, I never dreamed that I would be involved in short-term missions that would take me to India to share health lessons with a group of Dalit women, or to Ecuador to minister with our church’s sent missionaries to a group of at-risk boys and more recently  a girl’s home for at-risk girls.   When you say “yes” to the Lord, you never know where He will lead you.

It’s NOT What You Think!

By David Sanford, Corban University, Director of Institutional Marketing

Thank you so much Mission ConneXion! What a privilege to be able to present back-to-back workshops titled “Loving Your Neighbor: Surprise! It’s Not What You Think” this past January!

One of the last things I expected was to be greeted by a host of students from Indonesia – the country with the largest Muslim population in the world!

To Fear or To Love

By Jim Westfall

Eiffel TowerThe sirens began after 10 pm and continued to cry out until nearly 2 am. It was our first night in Paris. We felt fortunate having an apartment near Place de la Bastille in the 11th arrondissement near the city’s center. We learned of the attacks only after we woke in the morning. It was Friday, November 14, 2015. The city was in shock, and so were we.

Praying Without Borders

By Wendy Morgan

Wendy MorganMy story here is simple because, well, it’s just one piece of my story.

It was just a few years ago that I was attending Crossroads Community Church and Mission ConneXion Northwest was soon to be held there.  I was asked by Crossroads to serve as the lead registration volunteer.  Now, I was still pretty new to the area and had never heard of this organization, but I said yes; and by the end of the event, a “connexion” had been made!
