Zach & Stephanie Oyler with Campus Outreach

couple1Campus Outreach is a college ministry that exists to “Glorify God by building laborers on the campus to advance the church in the lost world.” Therefore, Zach works full-time on the college campus to reach the students there, the vision being to see lost students come to know Jesus Christ, grow through discipleship, and learn how to reach their peers…all through a life-on-life relational process. Campus Outreach exists to evangelize, establish, equip and export the future leaders of the world by using the college campus as a strategic context to do so. Over the last several years, by the grace of God, Zach has had the joy leading several young men through this process and is now an Area Director for CO Raleigh, investing in the spiritual development of students and fellow CO staff members at Campbell University, Duke University and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

 

Matias & Rebekah Mancilla with Child Evangelism Fellowship in Puerto Rico

Matias is from Argentina and Rebekah is from Pennsylvania. They met in Brazil after having both worked for several years reaching children with the Gospel through Child Evangelism Fellowship in their respective countries. They got married in 2011, and are now working as the directors of CEF in Mifflin, Juniata, and Perry (MJP) counties in central PA. Our overarching call to missions is based on Mark 16:15, but we have specific callings as well to work with kids. Matias saw how one child (his older brother) being reached with the Gospel was the key for his whole family to come to faith. Rebekah finds joy in seeing children hear the good news, receive it, and grow in it. Our goal in CEF MJP is to reach children by equipping local believers to clearly share the Good News of Jesus personally in their neighborhoods, churches, Good News Clubs, and Camp programs. We also desire to encourage believing children to have an active part in a local Bible-believing church. Ultimately, we desire to build up a local leadership team for the tri-county area and commit the work to them. Please also pray for an effective outreach into the Spanish-speaking community in the tri-county area and in Pennsylvania in general.

couple3Teaching and Living With Hope – Creating Capacity and Reaching the Unreached

We are teaching English and living with hope in order to create access to the gospel among a group that is essentially unreached. We have an opportunity to begin reaching the university demographic through teaching English.  Teaching gives us a presence in the lives of students whom we hope to disciple for Jesus Christ.

We first arrived in Georgia in 2006. We have strived to learn the language and culture, and have served in different roles and ministries since then such as discipling young singles and couples, international church leadership, teaching English, youth ministry and serving through the local church in the town where we live.

We have been blessed with two beautiful daughters – Ayanna is 9 and Ellah is 6. They both spent a year in Georgian schools and can speak Georgian very well with their friends.
