Concord loves missions. We pray for our neighbors and the nations. We encourage active witnessing and cross-cultural engagement. We send out short-term mission teams. We collect an annual World Mission Offering which supports IMB, NAMB, Tennessee, local, and other Concord-sponsored mission endeavors.

Why do we teach and pray and give and go? Because we believe that nothing is greater than seeing Jesus’ name honored throughout the earth.  

Some missionaries are especially close to us, several of whom have come from our own church family:

 

Travis & Rebeca Rymer
Grace Harbor Community Church

Travis and Rebeca Rymer live in Providence, RI, one of the least-reached areas for the gospel in the United States. Travis serves in campus ministry through NAMB at Johnson and Wales University, and as a pastor with Grace Harbor Community Church.


Todd & Diana

After completing an intensive two-year missionary training program with To Every Tribe in 2016, Todd and Diana moved their family to minister in Northwest Ontario. They are living among the First Nation peoples of the area, who are considered to be unreached with the gospel. 


Sam & Cathy

Sam and Cathy moved their family overseas in order to live as missionaries. They've spent many years sharing Jesus in a spiritually dark part of the world.  


Josh & Jenny

In 2012, Josh and Jenny moved their family to the Middle East to plant a gospel-preaching church. The Lord blessed their efforts, and in April 2015, they broke ground for a new evangelical ministry center.  Josh and Jenny serve a very diverse group of believers, representing 6 continents and over 15 countries.

 


John & Donna Bates
To Every Tribe

During the summer of 2015, John and Donna sold their house in Chattanooga and accepted leadership positions at the To Every Tribe missionary training organization in Los Fresnos, TX. John is now their Chief Executive Officer, and Donna directs the Inn at Chachalaca Bend.   


Tom & Deborah Nite
International Biblical Training

Tom and Deborah  served as missionaries in Russia and Eastern Europe for 16 years before founding the International Biblical Training organization. They now provide teaching at Bible Colleges, Seminaries, and conferences to equip pastors and Christian workers in Eastern Europe, India, and Africa.


Dave & Vickie Hawkins
International Biblical Training

Dave and Vickie are a part of the International Biblical Training organization where Dave provides theological training to pastors throughout the Caribbean, Ukraine, and Moldova where solid Biblical teaching is hard to find.


Pete Lafakis & Ken Ivins
AMG International

Pete Lafakis and Ken Ivins serve with AMG International, supporting the work of child care centers and helping local churches develop a global vision for their members.
