In this time of uncertainty our missionaries and organizations are also going through a time of unknown.  Pray for peace for each of them as they navigate the COVID-19 crisis in a place that is not home.

Nate & Stacy Tatman

As associate regional coordinators for Europe and the Middle East, Nate and Stacy will be working alongside Regional Coordinators Patrick and Jamie Nachtigall as together they help connect, encourage, and resource the Church of God throughout the region. Nate and Stacy will have a particular emphasis on church planting and church health, walking alongside pastors and leaders in the region connected through the EuropeX church network.

Alejandro & Carmen De Franciscos

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. Along the way, they will be raising up and training leaders for these congregations. 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.

France @Home Ministry

Thousands of refugees came to France in the last few years to flee wars, poor and difficult living conditions, and economic hardships in their home countries. The church is the only solution for this crisis! However, in order to serve these refugees effectively, a dedicated missionary church is needed. The @home project is the birthing of a church on the ground to reach this population. It is a bridge between Arabic-speaking Christians and churches through teaching French, sharing the Gospel and making disciples.

Village of Hope

Village of Hope is located in San Lucas, Guatemala. The vision for Village of Hope was born out the knowledge that God has a heart for the least of these. Scripture reveals a God who is passionate about the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien, and the poor.

The purpose of Village of Hope is to provide family, faith and a future to special needs children and vulnerable mothers in a family style setting. Each family living unit consists of house parents and about 8 children or mothers living in a home together on the Village of Hope property. Our hope is to create a family unit as God intended- a family to provide life- long support as well as teach the children to have life values. Another part of our vision is to develop relationship in the Guatemalan Evangelical churches, to come along side of them, educating them on God’s heart for the orphan, as well as open their eyes to the gift of adoption.

Gobena Coffee

G obena (pronounced gō•bĭn•ŭh), a 70 year-old farmer, found Eva abandoned in the yard near his home. “Because
she is God’s soul,” Gobena and his wife, Mulunesh, took care of the newborn baby for about a month. During this time Gobena and Mulunesh realized that they would not be able to provide for Eva, so they carried her 5 miles to a police station to seek help. At the police station they learned about adoption and realized
that putting Eva in an orphanage to be adopted was the best option for the child. Eva is now a permanent member of Steve and Danae’s family. She is truly a blessing from God and a constant reminder that there is always hope, as long as there are people who care.

Gobena’s sense of community inspired Steve and Danae to start this coffeeministry where 100% of the net profits werereinvested in the lives of orphan children throughout the world. In 2012, Lifesong accepted the challenge of growing Gobena… where each bag of coffee sold blesses the lives of children.

So invite some friends over for coffee and Go Make a Difference by choosing Gobena Coffee. Learn more about Gobena and our Restoration cafe here

Patrick & Jamie Natchigall (3W Europe)

Prior to accepting this assignment as regional coordinators for Europe and the Middle East in 2010, Patrick and Jamie served as career missionaries in Hong Kong and China for nine years.

Patrick was adopted by missionaries Harry and Jene Nachtigall in San Jose, Costa Rica, and has lived in Costa Rica, Panama, the United States, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Germany. Both Jamie’s parents (Russ and Sharon Skaggs) and her grandparents served as missionaries for the Church of God in Egypt. Jamie grew up and went to school in Cairo and has also lived in the United States, Hong Kong, and Germany. Like Patrick, she is a TCK (third- culture kid) and has always felt comfortable traveling the world and interacting with different cultures.
Patrick and Jamie’s son Marco is also a fantastic traveler and loves exploring new places and cultures. He also loves all things Lego and Star Wars. Like his parents, he is an avid reader.
The Nachtigalls view their life together in Germany as a great adventure.

Three Worlds Ministry

Three Worlds is a team of committed Christians experienced in cross-cultural ministry. Together, we serve as teachers, mentors, consultants and strategists for Churches in 16 countries in Europe and the Middle East. We are a team with coordinators (Nachtigalls) and team unity is a must. We each enjoy being part of something bigger than ourselves. We like being in systems of accountability. We are committed to seeing people we mentor go beyond where we could go. We are committed to seeing the Younger generation succeed. We are coaches and mentors, not stars!”

Each Three Worlds team member is based in a particular country and a local ministry, but we work together towards three common objectives in the region known as the 3W prism

  1. Engage young people in cross-cultural ministry
  2. Support empowered and accountable leaders, especially under the age of 45
  3. Create inter-connectivity within the churches, countries and region in which we operate

Global Disciples

Global Disciples serves to equip, connect and facilitate cooperation in the global Body of Christ among clusters of churches focused on reaching those least-reached with the Gospel. We help develop locally-sustainable discipleship-mission, small business and leadership training, rooted in commonly held commitments to:

  • Glorify God, the Creator and eternal Lord of the universe.
  • Exalt the only Savior and risen Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Son.
  • Rely on the Holy Spirit to teach, convict, comfort, and empower.
  • Accept the Bible as the divinely inspired, authoritative Word of God.
  • Demonstrate love in our relationships with those in the church, the Body of Christ.
  • Show love for those without Christ through lives of compassionate service, wholesome relationships, and a clear evangelistic witness.
  • Honor the sanctity of human life from conception to death, understanding we are created male and female, in the image of God.
  • Live in sexual purity, whether single or in a marriage of a man and a woman.
  • Pray and work diligently to see the Gospel spread to all peoples in anticipation of the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
