Singular and focused partnership equals greater impact for Christ


global outreach strategy

The Gospel has always been carried on the shoulders of relationships. That truth forms our global outreach strategy. Rather than taking multiple trips to a number of different places, we wanted to focus on one. We wanted to focus on unifying our church family behind a single, focused partnership with a church overseas. By concentrating all our global efforts in one place, we believe we can have a greater impact for the Kingdom of God. We want to see the CFCC family develop deep rooted relationships with our partner church so that both of our communities can grow deeper in our love for God and more effective in sharing His Gospel.

As God showed us His vision for the global outreach at CFCC, we began to research and pray that God would lead us to the church that He wants us to partner with. Through this, we connected with Praying Pelican Missions. PPM’s goal is to facilitate a partnership like the one we desire. They provide us with the opportunity to build lasting relationships on short-term mission trips with local churches. While we may only be in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks each year, our friends at PPM are there all year long, facilitating the partnership when we can’t be there physically.

We as a church, financially support Nathan Norman and his family. Nathan and his family are missionaries that we met on our first discovery trip to Costa Rica. He now serves as the International Missions Director with Praying Pelicans in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Costa Rica PPM staff consists of Costa Rica nationals who have been called into ministry and make our partnerships and short-term trips possible.


IGLESIA MEJORES DÍAS

Pastor Dimas Alfaro

Through our partnership with Praying Pelican, we met Pastor Dimas Alfaro and connected with his church Iglesia Mejores Días in Nambi, Costa Rica. God has given Pastor Dimas a beautiful vision for His church in Nambi. It’s our desire to come along side Pastor Dimas and his church leadership to show their community just how much God loves them. Our goal is to support them through prayer, partnership, and by sending several teams to Nambi each year to connect, serve, and build a bond that will grow both communities.


HOW CAN I JOIN IN THE EFFORTS?

There are so many ways to be part of our global outreach efforts in Costa Rica. Starting with going and experiencing it first hand. Approximately 9 months prior to a trip, we will have discovery meetings. The goal of this meeting is to answer any questions you may have so that you can begin praying about going with us on our next trip. You can also email Charles Fox at cfox@carolinaforest.org with any other specific questions you may have regarding our short-term mission trips.

It’s our hope that the entire church body is able to be part of our global outreach partnership. And we know that it is not always possible to physically go on a trip. So we have put together several ways for you to support these efforts right here from home. Click here to learn more!
