For September, we are highlighting various ministries through our partnership with Three Worlds (3W). Regional Coordinators for Europe & Middle East, Patrick and Jamie Nachtigall, established the 3W Team about eight years ago. Since its inception, County Line has walked alongside the 3W’s team in partnering with local churches who have a desire to restore…

Through Global Strategy, Alejandro and Carmen de Francisco are missionaries and church planters to Spain. After spending the last two decades in Florida, and planted 17 churches, they followed God’s call to plant churches throughout Spain. Like County Line, the de Francisco’s have a big heart and a big vision for church planting. They know that…

Last year I posted a blog about our new ministry partner in Paris. You can read that post here. Last month I went back for our bi-annual board meeting. (This trip also coincided with the launch of Europe X, which I will write about in my next post.) So many great things are happening with…

Last month, Regional Coordinator Patrick Nachtigall, wrote about the launch of a new initiative in the Europe/Middle East region called Europe X. I (Pastor Nate) will be traveling to Budapest, Hungry to co-lead these meetings April 8-11. The Budapest meetings will be attended by young leaders from five different countries throughout Europe. I will be…

On Sunday, January 14th Pastor Stu shared that we will be launching a new satellite campus in Garrett. (You can watch the sermon here.) That Sunday, and the following, many of you expressed interest in being a part of this new church. I wanted to take this opportunity to share what we’ve been doing and…

In January, Pastor Stu unveiled our vision to plant 37 churches throughout Indiana. You can listen to that sermon here, but I also encourage you to watch the entire series, in order, to understand the heart and intent behind our vision. In addition to the goal of planting 37 churches, we also announced in January…

The vision is to rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the…

With Joy to the World offering coming up on December 17th and December 24th, we wanted to give you a better idea of what Village of Hope does as an organization as well as what Catie Hoeppner will be doing in Guatemala.  You can watch our videos below if you would like to learn more…

Our Disaster Relief team left for Texas on Sunday and have been doing some great work! Here are some updates from the trip leaders, Mindy and Mike Georgi: The church is about the size of County line having two floors, and a gym. Our work was to insulate and drywall the entire thing about 4…

In December 2016, we chose Global Disciples as our Joy to the World Offering recipient. Your giving went to support a new way of teaching pastors and planters in small business practices throughout Ethiopia. Rather than sending teachers from North America, the Global Disciples leaders are investing in new leaders to not only teach the…

We want to periodically highlight some of the ministries that we support here at County Line. This week we want to talk about Safe Families, a worldwide organization started in 2002. This ministry was started because there was was a need for reliable support when families are going through hard times. Safe Families came to…

A few months ago, we were challenged as a church to “Engage: Garrett,” as a way to connect and serve the communities around County Line.  Several people have taken advantage of this through the restore grants.  As we continue to engage the community of Garrett we need to be aware of the needs and respond…

In 2009, we made a decision to transition our mission’s strategy as, what I call, a transaction to structuring missions as a relationship. What I didn’t know at the time, but now know, is that this paradigm shift meant that we would work side by side with missionaries and mission leaders. Over the last eight…

I (Chris Kaczmarek) recently went on a trip to Rwanda in East Africa to visit Land of a Thousand Hills coffee (the same coffee that we serve in our Restoration Cafe). There were only two of us from County Line, but we partnered with a church from South Carolina. If you don’t know much about…

Also, there are site-seeing and site visits from the host church and missionaries. 3W Missionary Updates There are currently six missionary families on…

Our annual Faith in Action Sunday went down as a great success! It was such a blessing for me (Pastor Chris) to see how County Line gets passionate about serving our community. I just keep going back to Matthew 9:38 which Pastor Stu challenged us with a few months ago. “So pray to the Lord…

Lenses There are two lenses we look through when it comes to the type of missions we connect with as a church. One lens is partnering with ministries that work with vulnerable children. The other lens is partnering with ministries that work alongside local churches and leaders on a global platform. In this context, we…

Our annual Faith in Action is just around the corner (May 27 & 28th), and I thought I’d take this time to talk about some of the projects we have and why we do this event. We have over 25 projects this year! I wanted to mention some of the new ones that we have…

County Line Ministry Partner, 3W, just finished hosting their second Leadership Network. County Line has played a role in both of these network meetings. I was not able to attend the 2017 meetings. However, I was able to participate in 2015. Below is a summary of my 2015 trip. This year, County Line was able…

Our annual Faith in Action weekend is coming up in about a month (May 27th & 28th).  This is the one Sunday a year where we don’t have services, but instead, we go out and serve the communities surrounding County Line.  Faith in Action is intentionally scheduled for Memorial Day weekend while you are with…

We want to thank all of you for the concern and prayers that you have expressed for us and for Christians in Egypt in the last 24 hours through emails and social media.

I’ve (Pastor Chris) recently had the privilege to meet with each of our local compassion partners. I plan to begin talking about each of them through the next few months.

In late February, a men’s team from County Line left for Village of Hope Guatemala. Most of us didn’t know each other, but within a weeks time we would know each other well and have helped a ministry through construction projects. The first night we got there we went through a sort of orientation where…

Last month, I (Pastor Nathan) had the opportunity to visit a new ministry in Paris with our ministry partner, Patrick Nachtigall of Three Worlds. Rather than re-write a trip summary, I thought it best to use Patrick’s report in his most recent newsletter. Stay tuned as we continue to identify ways in which County Line can work…
