Thru Global Missions

Missions is about more than traveling to a different part of the world and helping to fix a broken building. It’s about pouring God’s love on other people and inviting them to the most important, most amazing relationship they will ever have — Jesus Christ.
Each one of us is called to “missions.” God places us in specific places and situations so that we can draw others closer to Him. We join Him in His redemptive work by praying for and serving others. We give of our time, talents, and treasures. We intentionally build relationships with people so that they can get a glimpse of Him through us.
WCC is actively building relationships with select, key ministries, missionaries and churches throughout the world. This allows us to provide the resources needed to empower what God has already started.

Elam Ministries
Dan & Carmen Hale

Elam was founded in 1990 by senior Iranian church leaders with a vision to serve the growing church in the Iran region. From the beginning, Elam’s passion was to train and equip Iranian Christians to reach and disciple their countrymen. By God’s grace, the ministry is growing and is being used to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region in a significant way.
Elam’s vision is that all the people of the Iran region would have the opportunity to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Him as a disciple, and that Iranians would be instrumental in taking the Gospel to other Muslims. To achieve this vision, we:
• Train leaders for fruitful, effective ministry in the Iran region.
• Equip the Iranian church with Bibles and resources for evangelism and discipleship.
• Send the Gospel into the Iran region through trained evangelists, church planters and Christian media.
Such is the openness of the Iranian people that wherever there is a witness to the Gospel, individuals, families and even communities are coming to Christ.
