Our Vision

We go to places where Jesus communities do not yet exist. We speak and serve in culturally relevant ways. We put love in action and we do it to reach people with the good news of Jesus.

Global Partners

Ward supports over 60 missionaries and other global partner organizations. Information about our partners is available at our Missions Wall just inside Entry 1, or on our beta Ward Serves the Nations website.

Each year, Ward takes a number of short-term ministry trips to support our global partners and other strategic ministries.

All of our 2020 trips have been canceled due to COVID-19

2020 trips:

This 2020 trip has been canceled due to COVID-19

  • October 1-11, 2020
  • $2,500
  • Leaders: Chris Meagher and Katie Olver

The main purpose will be to interact with the children and teachers at our Open Doors sponsored school in Gaya. This interaction will include 3-4 days of classroom teaching for the children (topics to be determined but plan on things like crafts, music, science & math, geography, etc.), plus 1-2 days of training for the teachers (more detail to follow as trip planning begins). In addition, we would like to have 2-3 medical personnel who can provide physical assessments of the children and possibly members of their families during the week (but would also be willing/able to teach during the other times). So in addition to the specific MD/RN/NP roles, we would be looking for volunteers willing to work with kids from K-8 in the classroom topics noted above, but also to generally show God’s love by “being there” and connecting with them.

This mission outreach provides volunteers an opportunity to build three exterior decks to complete new housing for KCAM radio ministry missionaries. Located 187 miles from Anchorage, KCAM has been serving the Copper River Valley community since 1964, which includes the native Ahtna people who are the largest American Indian tribe in Alaska’s interior. KCAM’s programming is often the only church experience available to many in this isolated area and is key to helping listeners learn about Christ and his love for them. In addition to building decks, the team will have the chance to explore the area, tour the radio station, help with radio announcements, minister to the locals and spend time praying for this important ministry. We are looking for those with skills in construction, painting, tile work, wood splitting and/or catching, cleaning and packaging salmon (winter food supply for missionaries). An $100 non-refundable deposit is due upon registration with the balance due at a later date.
