Be The Church

Our annual outreach Sunday started when we couldn’t meet in our temporary home at the Youth Center. So we decided to go out into the community and ‘Be the Church’ by serving others. We continue to go out throughout the year, meeting people’s needs where they are.


James & Jenny Wolheter

James and Jenny Wolheter have served in Bolivia with Evangelical Church Missions since the fall of 2003. James and Jenny’s ministry in Bolivia includes theological training of pastors, leadership development in local churches and supervisory activities. Jenny performs office duties and assists James in developing relationships with young pastors and providing them with guidance. They have opened their home on  many occasions to entertain neighbors and friends. Their contagious hospitality has touched many lives. James has worked closely with church leaders in theological and ministry training and relates well with youth, often participating in their events.

James and Jenny are members of Ligonier Evangelical Church in Indiana. The Wolheters have three children: Coy, Cy and Cade.

Gary & Laura Griffin

Laura and Gary Griffin have served in Honduras with World Gospel Mission since 2011. Laura and Gary’s ministry at Escuela El Sembrador (School of the Sower) has included Gary teaching auto mechanics and working on the farm and Laura teaching English and small business practice with the women. They have also ministered to the young men and farm workers through their “home” ministry, allowing many opportunities for them to share God’s message and build relationships.

Gary and Laura are members of Shiloh Evangelical Church in Ohio.
