GLOBAL OUTREACH

At County Line, we look to six themes found throughout Scripture to guide our global outreach ministry. As we partner with new and existing ministries and organizations, we ensure that they are passionate about these biblical themes.

  • Priority on the Local Church - For us as County Line, we need to help those who are sent do their work through the local church on the ground.  For the missionaries, it is vital for them to see that their work cannot be done in a healthy manner without the support of the local church.
  • Freedom for the Oppressed - We will do everything in our power to fight for the oppressed and vulnerable around the world.  
  • Church Planting - We want to be involved in planting churches and helping others plant churches, not only locally, but globally as well.
  • Evangelism - In order to grow the Church, evangelism is vital.  This may look different based on the region, culture, or context but it should be done regardless.
  • Training, Equipping and Sending - At County Line, we will offer opportunities for congregation members to be trained in missions through classes, groups, and missionary visits.  We will equip through workshops and impact trips.  Lastly, when possible we will send those who feel called.
  • Prayer - Without prayer none of this is possible.  We commit to being a prayer focused congregation.  We will pray for people all over the globe.

Alejandro & Carmen DeFrancisco

Alejandro and Carmen are passionate about planting churches and building the kingdom of God. They will be leading the Church of God back into Spain. Together with the Three Worlds team, they have a vision to plant a network of healthy, self-sustaining, self-replicating congregations across Spain, beginning with the launch of a church plant on the south side of Madrid. This network of churches will be fully integrated into the fellowship of the Church of God across the region. De Franciscos will also serve in the Europe and Middle East region as the Three Worlds team’s consultants for healthy church plants.  County line sent part of our year end Joy to the World offering to the DeFrancisco’s in 2018 and we began supporting them in 2019.

Patrick & Jamie Nachtigall

They continue to walk alongside pastors and local leaders, encouraging and mentoring them. At County Line, we have been supporting the work of Patrick and Jamie since 2013.
