Pastor of Sending and Outreach
Wheaton Bible Church has a long history of investing in global missions and local outreach. Our commitment to reach the world with the love of Jesus Christ has continued through more than eight decades. Today, more than 30% of our church budget is directed to global and community outreach!
Across our campuses, we support approximately 90 missionaries and partners—individuals and couples who use an array of skills and passions to impact more than fifty nations of the world in Jesus’ name. In challenging contexts where we cannot send our own due to lack of access or security concerns, we partner with Strategic Indigenous Leaders who know their culture and are proven leaders.
Locally, our Puente del Pueblo outreach is the largest social service provider in West Chicago—offering case management services for families, adult literacy programming, and after-school and summer programming for children and youth. Our church also partners in providing Safe Families, Refugee Resettlement, and other supportive services to the vulnerable in our communities.
Reaching out in friendship and service to residents of the Timber Lake and Main Park Apartments in West Chicago is the mission of Puente del Pueblo. Puente del Pueblo provides opportunities for our Spanish- and English-speaking congregations to express God's grace, love, and justice to people in our neighborhood. Puente’s goal is to work with the community to foster change that benefits residents’ personal, family, and community lives by providing case management services for families, adult literacy programming, and after-school programming for children and youth—and it is now the largest social service provider in West Chicago.
We regret that no official Adult GO Teams are planned for 2021 due to many international travel restrictions. However, we hope to send teams again in 2022.
