What is ``Faith Promise Missions?``

Faith promise gifts differ from regular offerings in that a faith promise requires the giver to commit to giving what he or she does not currently have—a promise requiring faith that God will provide.

It is based on 2 Corinthians 10:15-16: Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly, To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.

  • Church members are to prayerfully consider the amount to promise.
  • The giving is to be in addition to a person’s normal offering (or tithe).
  • The promise is a one-year faith commitment.
  • Faith is to be placed in God, not the giver’s own power.
  • The whole process is to be carried out in faith, trusting God to supply.

Mark & Ashley Ackeret


Supported since 2019

Since college, Mark and Ashley have been active in their local church preparing for a future of full-time service. God has worked through Mark in various preaching and outreach opportunities. They have ministered together in door-to- door visitation, discipleship and Bible studies, as well as children’s and music ministries. Mark and Ashley have already seen several souls saved through their ministry.

In the summer of 2017, God allowed them to take a ten-day survey trip to Ecuador. While they were there, God confirmed the call to the country and increased their burden for the Ecuadorian people. They learned many things during this time and were privileged to spend time with veteran missionaries, Sid and Susie Messer. Mark and Ashley would like to join them during their first term to gain valuable experience under the Messer’s church planting ministry in Manta, Ecuador.

Please, let us help you! The Alpha Women’s center exists to minister to women just like you, and we’ve assisted thousands of women over the years. Here are just some of the services we offer:

  • We can give you a free, confidential pregnancy test.
  • We can educate you about pregnancy, fetal development, and the alternatives to abortion.
  • We can provide free clothing, formula, diapers, and baby furnishings if you participate in our Learn and Earn Bible study program.
  • We can give you information about sexually transmitted diseases.
  • We can educate you about childbirth, feeding, prenatal development, postnatal care, and parenting.

  • If needed, we can provide referrals to organizations that provide adoptions, medical care, educational ultrasounds, legal assistance, and other services.

Most importantly, because the Alpha Women’s center is a Christian ministry, any of our volunteers would be delighted to pray with you or share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with you. We can tell you what the Bible says about topics such as sexual purity and God’s plan for the family, and we offer you our continued friendship and support, both now and in the future.

Purity Plan Ministries

Supported Since 2019

My calling and passion is to help people maintain sexual integrity. I preach for purity and victorious living.

After 25 years of pastoral ministry in Independent Fundamental Baptist churches, the Lord led me to found Purity Plan Ministries in November of 2012. By God’s grace, I have been able to help people struggling with sexual sin by coming alongside them, providing hope, and pointing out a clear plan for victory over sexual sin. In addition to the comprehensive 15 week online course, Journey to Victory, the Lord has enabled me to author Slay the Dragon: Living in Lasting Victory in an Increasingly Impure World.

Paul & Cindy Hoover

Reaching America Baptist Partners

Supported Since 2015

Evangelist Paul Hoover & his wife Cindy planted Souls Harbor Baptist Church in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield, Wisconsin in the Summer of 1986.  Within a few months, the Lord impressed upon their hearts to move the church into the inner city of Milwaukee where there was a tremendous need for a solid Bible preaching church.  They had several locations, but they spent most of their time in the inner city at 1235 N. 12th St.  They built a building there in 1992 and then added two wings onto the main building in 2002.  In 2007 the building was sold in order to purchase a much larger facility at 3800 S. Howell Ave.  In 2016, Evangelist Hoover retired from the pastorate and is currently serving as the church’s staff evangelist.  Evangelist Hoover is available for pulpit supply, missions conferences, revivals and evangelistic meetings.

Russian Speaking People of New York City

Supported since 2015

After being forced to leave Russia, the Lord directed us to work with the enormous Russian-speaking population of New York City. There are over 600,000 Russians in NYC. We first began having services in September 2004 and continue to see God grow this church. We have three weekly church services in Brooklyn, and two weekly Bible studies in the borough of Queens. The need for a ministry like this is such that our people sometimes travel three hours one way to reach our church, and we have had regular attenders from New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Our congregation represents over half of the now-independent countries that used to comprise the Soviet Union, with religious backgrounds in Judaism, Islam, atheism and the Russian Orthodox Church. New York City (with its huge and multinational population located within the borders of the United States) is a great destination for mission trips, and we welcome any opportunity to present the needs of this “foreign ministry on domestic soil” to new churches as we seek to gain our full support and raise up additional prayer partners for this ministry.

Couriers For Christ – Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Supported since 2015
Couriers For Christ

I accepted Christ as my Savior during a mission’s conference in Canada when I was 12 years of age. I was involved in the ministries of Wyldewood Baptist Church at the of 16 and was able to go on a couple of mission’s trips before going off to Bible college. I attended one year of Fairhaven Baptist College. After completing one year, I went back to my home church and took some Bible Institute classes. At the age of 20 I had the opportunity to go on a mission’s trip to Zambia, Africa for six months. After returning home from Africa, I went back to Fairhaven to finish up my schooling. It was there that I met my wife, Heather. We got married the year before we both graduated from college.

After graduating, we moved out to Auburn, New York to work at Freedom Baptist Church as an Associate Pastor under Pastor David Dunbar. It was during our mission’s conference, in October, 2012 under the preaching of Bro. Nick Bickish, that God called us into missions and directed us to join the Couriers Ministry. Please pray for us as we work with the Couriers for Christ ministry. We have a great burden to reach all of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union with the Gospel and putting Godʼs Word into the hands of the people.

Mshama & Martha Kinyonga


Supported Since 2019

My name is Mshama Kinyonga, and my wife’s name is Martha. We both graduated in May 2009 from Hyles-Anderson College. Our goal is to reach the people of my home country of Tanzania.

I was saved at the age of fifteen and had a desire to serve God with my life. I attended Faith Baptist Church in Morogoro, Tanzania, and it was there that my desire continued to grow. My pastor, Jerry Wyatt Jr., influenced me to get involved in the ministry. I taught a Sunday school class for children at church and the Bible in the public schools. I also worked in the Puppet Ministry, where we used puppets to go to different public schools, in the Bible Clubs, and in open-air evangelistic meetings. We were able to draw good crowds to present the Gospel. I even had the opportunity to work in the Village Ministry, where we would go to different villages and present the Gospel. The Lord has allowed me to see many people get saved and have their lives transformed in our ministries. In 2005 the Lord gave me the great privilege of going to Hyles-Anderson College to further my life’s calling.

My wife and I are excited to be teaching the people in Tanzania. Our focal point is to transfer the knowledge we received at college to the Tanzanians so they, too, can train others for full-time Christian service.

We are the Klaus family, Daniel, Maggy, Havilah, Ian and Ezekiel. We were married the summer of 2006 after Maggy graduated from Maranatha Baptist Bible College. Following Daniel’s graduation from Ambassador Baptist College in 2008, we spent the summer together as a family in NYC. It was during this time that God confirmed in our hearts the desire to serve Him as church planters there. That Fall, we moved back to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were Daniel became the Assistant Pastor at Souls Harbor Baptist Church. During the three years we ministered at SHBC, we learned much about serving God in an urban environment. In the Fall of 2011, Souls Harbor commissioned us as missionaries to New York City, and we moved to Brooklyn, where Daniel became the Assistant Pastor at Memorial Baptist Church. For the past six years, we have been serving here in Brooklyn, growing in our experience and knowledge of ministering in one of the world’s largest cities. In July of 2017, Daniel accepted the call to re-plant Calvary Bible Baptist Church in Glendale, Queens.

The Lord directed his heart specifically to the need in Uruguay. After their family took a three-week trip there in the fall of 2017, the Lord’s leading was confirmed in their hearts.
