Missionaries

Alexis Asbury

NC State University, Raleigh, NC  (Since 2023)
ALEXIS' MINISTRY FOCUS: I will be working in full-time ministry on NC State’s campus. Most of my time will be spent meeting with girls one-on-one for discipleship, leading small group Bible studies and planning on-campus events for students. NC State has one of the largest CRU movements in the country, so there are a variety of different opportunities for students to be introduced to the love of Christ. My time and talents will be stewarded so that the ministry of CRU can continually give students the opportunity to experience the love of God – whether that’s through outreach events, weekly large group meetings or the annual Fall Retreat.

Matthew Parker & Family

Ecuador (Since 2012)

THE PARKER'S MINISTRY FOCUS: Train our church planters.

Being instrumental in spreading the gospel of Christ to thousands of people in Ecuador and around the world via our radio ministry with Reach Beyond. We are planning some big changes for HCJB, as we try to make our 90-year-old radio station a more multi-media ministry. We are currently developing new content that will be reaching a monthly audience of over 500,000 people. We have the privilege of leading several new young staff members in the creation of podcasts, videos, and campaigns to reach the next generations.


The second part of our ministry is in Brazil where there are 10,000 communities along the Amazon River and around 8,000 who have never heard the Gospel. God gave us the vision to help reach and disciple these people using solar powered mp3 players. For the past 10 years we have distributed close to 4,000 players, providing families with quality programming that has helped open up and evangelize communities and is helping believers grow and mature spiritually.
“I will praise you Lord with all my heart; I will tell of the marvelous things you have done.” Psalms 9:1

IMPORTANT NOTE: In addition, we faithfully and prayerfully support 3 missionary families that live in more hostile parts of the world. For their safety, we cannot identify those families on this page. However, we are thankful for these dear families and trust our Heavenly Father to protect them as they share the good news of Jesus Christ with their communities.
