Missionaries

SCCC has a vision for seeing the Gospel shared “to the ends of the earth.” Missions and supporting missionaries is an integral part of SCCC. More than 25% of the annual budget is designated towards helping those who have dedicated their lives to this very task, especially those who are working to share the Gospel message here in Mexico. Join us as we pray for these faithful servants!

Maggie Archiga

Agua y Mas

Maggie has a shelter in Guaymas for orphaned children and battered & abused women with no place to go – especially women with children. The goal is to help mothers get into the workplace, while the children remain at the center and receive both spiritual and educational training. She reaches out to the community around her with Bible studies, English lessons, workshops (sewing, knitting, crocheting, etc.). She holds services on the street and gives out clothing and shoes, etc., when available.

Devon & Marisol Kehler

Belen Casa de Pan

Devon and Marisol initially started a Feeding Program with a disadvantaged group in Independencia (South Guaymas). From this, it has expanded to providing clothing, teaching hygiene basics, and a time of worship and spiritual training. Up to 65 children, who attend on a twice weekly basis, are divided into smaller groups for the teaching time. This past Christmas, unchurched parents of these children were invited to attend an incredible Christmas presentation, all about Jesus as presented by their own children. They have a vision to expand to a full care center for abused moms and disadvantaged children.

Job & Maria Sierra

United Ministries Fellowship

Job and his wife Maria regularly travel into more remote villages in the mountains, preaching and encouraging several existing church plants.

The Great Commission has been given to the Church and this is the heartbeat of their ministry. They have been consistently visiting these church plants, preaching and have seen the fruit of their labors as people come to know Christ.

Ryan Thiessen

Centro Educativo Cristiano

Serving with Centro Educativo Cristiano, Ryan serves in various capacities including administration, teaching and maintenance. The goal of the school is to train and equip Mexican nationals to reach their own people and be effective leaders in their own congregations. The desire for each school term is to see more than just a gathering of information but a transformation of lives.

Ken & Ruth Van Kirk

Ken and Ruth have spent many years reaching out to the people of a small, remote, indigenous village in the mountains of Chihuahua, Mexico. Having studied medicine in Mexico, Ken practices as a doctor in a clinic they have set up in La Mesa to help reach out to these people.

Ruth is working as an administrative assistant alongside Ken on site. She has a ministry of hospitality to the local people as well as to outside visitors to their location. Ken is team leader to the La Mesa team, works in community health in the clinic on site and is a liaison between their Mexican civil association and the US headquarters, working in administration.

Their prayer is that the Gospel would be clearly proclaimed so that it would be understood in the people’s own language. Over ten years have gone into a language course preparation as this particular dialect had never been studied thoroughly or put into writing. The goal is to slowly but surely provide the Scriptures and Biblical teachings in the local’s own language.
