Here's a little bit (okay, maybe a lot...) about our organization and our mission.
We believe caring for missionaries in a holistic manner is key to encouraging long-lasting ministry built on the foundation of an engaged, prayerful network of churches and individuals who all support the same missionary.
Cheryl Markowitz sharing the gospel with a Rastafarian in Grenada, West Indies when she was 18 years old. It was her first missions trip and it changed her life! Her passionate desire to share the gospel and see people come to know Jesus has never wavered and has culminated in what we do at ConnecTree!
At the core of all our efforts is a heart for sharing the gospel with every nation, tribe and tongue. We endeavor to heed the Lord's command to go and make disciples of all nations, and we work with and support missionaries who are doing just that.
SUPPORT FOR THE
ConnecTree prays for and supports our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world, working with active ministries in Chiapas, Mexico, SE Asia, the Middle East and North Africa
We encourage followers of Christ, whatever their age, to engage in God's mission locally and internationally. We provide opportunities to explore missions through short-term trips and connecting people to mission organizations and missionaries to learn more. We also work to raise missions awareness in churches through our Missionary Advocacy Program (MAP).
To help missionaries have the care and support they need, financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually, to carry out the ministry that God has called them to do.
One of the things missionaries often lack is a connectedness among their support network. Connectree helps take that network to the next level by connecting supporting individuals and churches to each other in an effort to better care for and partner with their shared missionaries on the field. We do this by:
Advocating for missionaries by communicating with and connecting their supporting churches to one another to best care for and support them.
Helping churches care for their missionaries by implementing our Missionary Advocacy Program.
Mobilizing prayer and resources for missionaries' special needs, projects and evangelistic outreaches.
Taking short term mission trips to support the work of long term missionaries.
(Food, medical, widow and orphan care, disasters)
ConnecTree participates in relief work when missionaries find themselves working in communities impacted by natural disaster, war, food insecurity and medical needs. We raise funds to help make a lasting impact through missionaries who are feet on the ground, hands extended, offering help and the hope of the gospel in times of distress.
