Missions - Our Global Partners
Are you one with us in our Missions Philosophy?
Do you consider yourself "in the market" for solid partner churches? Would we agree? Let's see! Read this while listening here and let's discover whether God may have put us together for such a time as this.
Ministry to Muslims in Northern Africa and to Muslim Refugees in Europe
We are pleased to say that God has allowed us to minister to the Muslim people of North Africa and to Muslim refugees in Europe. We think it is prudent to abstain from posting the information of those missionary families on the world-wide web.
Phil and Lori Bassham - Thailand
Philip and Lori Bassham are missionaries to Thailand where it is 99.5% non-Christian. They are working to preach the Gospel, plant churches, and train leaders for the ministry. Learn more of this fine ministry: http://projectthailand.net/

Joey and Candice Kellett - Thailand
After five years as an assistant pastor and teacher here at Berean Baptist Church, God has directed the Kelletts to plant gospel-centered churches in Bangkok, Thailand. On a visit to a missionary our church supports, Phil Bassham, they became overwhelmingly burdened for the Thai people in Bangkok and the utter lack of churches preaching Christ. Follow them at: thegospelinthai.org.

The Kelletts are sponored by the Carolina Christians SS Class.
