Missions

Here at THCC we are grateful to be able to team up with so many great missionaries both locally and around the world.  God has truly blessed THCC through the years in the area of missions.  We pray that we continue to be faithful in giving to missions and making disciples.

 


Rosella Hostetler and Helen Morrison organized the first missionary group in 1953. Helen served as president and Ilene Whitlatch as vice president.  In 1975, the Faith Promise Rally was begun with Dallas Nickel and Evangelist Gilbert Forrest. Mark Cutler was named Mission Chairman and the church began to focus on mission giving more intentionally. Many of our missions have become long-term partnerships:
