CCC Global Missions

1. Global Partners - Angie Hemric

  • Angie grew very comfortable ministering through a local church in North Carolina, and soon felt the call on her life to travel to Guyana on a short-term mission trip. This short-term experience soon led to God calling her to serve in Guyana full-time to give leadership in a home for children who were orphaned and vulnerable.
  • In 2010 she returned to Guyana and now serves in a squatter community that is home to more than 100 orphans and vulnerable children. In 2014 Angie became a career missionary with Global Partners. Global Partners is the missionary sending agency of the Wesleyan church.
  • Country: Guyana

    3. Frontiers – Becca Cooper

  • There are over 1,000 Muslim people groups who don't know Jesus Christ. By partnering with churches and passionate people, their hope is that by 2025 that number will have fallen to zero. Throughout the world, millions of Muslim men and women long for peace. But it’s in the absence of peace in neighborhoods, cities, and nations that something happens: hearts may be stirred to seek an enduring peace that can only be found in God through the work of Christ. They rejoice in the opportunity to share the Good News that the gift of relationship with Jesus Christ is also meant for Muslims.
