Foothills partners with existing ministries in our local community and various parts of the world. Our partners typically have growing ministries to train local people in building the church. Our desire is to have people from Foothills work directly with these partners and welcome them at Foothills when they are in our neighborhood. Pray hard for these folks.
Asia: A Stayton couple that calls Foothills home works as missionaries to a country in Southeast Asia. We join them in their efforts to train new pastors that work in underground churches, and send teams to teach English to the children of this country. We have opportunities to bring the gospel of Jesus to children at an orphanage, as well as offer training to their caretakers.
Mexico: We are growing deep and lasting roots with the people of Papalote, Mexico. What a joy and privilege it is to hear their stories. We partner with Don & Ilene Nagle of Northern Light Ministries as they serve the people of Papalote through the Bible Institute of Baja. Many of the institute's students return to home villages to plant churches and minister to family members who have not met Jesus.
Haiti: Dr. Guesly Dessieux is a physician who calls Foothills home. He is a native of Haiti and takes medical teams from our local hospital to Haiti on a regular basis. We are excited to develop our relationship with Dr. Dessieux, Haitian Christian Mission, and Project Living Hope to include regular mission trips to this part of the world.
Brazil: Jerry and Lynda Neuman found their niche of ministry for building God's Kingdom in Northeast Brazil – currently in Fortaleza, a metropolis of two and a half million inhabitants, and the coastal capital of the state of Ceará. The Neumans are involved in fulfilling the fourth stage of the Great Commission: "teaching them to obey those things I have commanded you" as well as facilitating the completion of the cycle by helping Brazilians to "Go into all the world..." (Matthew 28:19-20)
Hope Pregnancy Clinic of Salem: Hope PC serves Marion and Polk Counties by empowering individuals to make healthy, life-affirming choices regarding sexuality, pregnancy, parenting and adoption. We support the mission of Hope PC through stewardship of various resources.
New Growth Ministries: Created to help youth in crisis, New Growth is a network of host families who provide food, shelter, and rest to youth in order to support and develop their resilience. New Growth works in collaboration with Safe Families for Children.
Community partnerships: We support the Stayton Community Food Bank and Community Action Resource Center through a monthly benevolence offering. These partners provide food and financial assistance to the many needy families of our region.
