Our Faith Promise Missionaries
"Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20
Eddy and Carrie RamosGlobal Outreach Mission
email: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
Eddy and Carrie Ramos are serving as missionaries in the Dominican Republic. Eddy is originally from the Dominican Republic. He gave his life to God when he was a teenager and has been serving the Lord in the church and the different areas of ministry he was called to ever since. In 2009, God sent Carrie on her first mission trip to the DR where, without her knowing, God had a great plan for her. In January 2010, she moved to the Dominican Republic to serve as a short-term missionary. After getting married, they chose to continue serving God together. They have been serving as a married couple under Global Outreach Mission in the Dominican Republic since August 2011.
After serving five years at a ministry school and three years with a ministry focused on discipleship, Eddy and Carrie are now following God’s call down a new path. At the beginning of 2018, they founded a children’s ministry “Ministerio Esperanza y Gozo” or “Hope and Joy Ministry” in a barrio in Santiago. The ministry is dedicated to bringing the hope and joy of Jesus to a community that is known for its poverty, crime, and violence. God has called Eddy and Carrie to work specifically with the children of this community; to show them that God truly loves them and to help them have a personal encounter with Jesus.
Eddy is also continuing his theological studies and is working towards his future goal of being a pastor. Their prayer is that God will bless their ministry to the children and that one day He may open the door to planting a church in that neighborhood.

Pathway to Jesus School
|c/o Reconciliation Church|
|833 E. 168th St.|
|South Holland, IL 60473|
In September 2003, the Pathway to Jesus School was founded by Guillermo and Shelley Hernandez. It was established to serve as a preschool/kindergarten for children ages 2-5 years old. The first year the school ministered to 18 students. However, the school grew so quickly it was decided to add a grade level each year and allow the school to minister to more children. Year by year, little by little, the school added more grade levels and received more students. There is such a great need for good, Christian education in the Dominican Republic; therefore, making this ministry very important.
These children come from lower class homes and a lot of them come from dysfunctional families. The majority of them are not from Christian homes so the school has a GREAT opportunity to share God´s love and God´s word with these students and their families and at the same time provide an excellent education.
Pathway to Jesus School (Colegio Caminito de Jesús) presently has a staff of 30 and approximately 260 students, preschool through 6th grade.
Guillermo and Shelley have 2 awesome children, Sarah and Mark, who are true blessings from God. Mark and Sarah are currently attending Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL. Mark plans to go into law enforcement and Sarah plans to go into elementary education.

Daniel AlbrechtYoung Life, Northwest Indiana
Time speaks volumes in the lives of teens. In our fast pace, instant world, kids are left with questions.
Does anyone care about me? Will anyone listen to me? Am I worth anything? Is God real?
Young Life is a missionary group whose sole purpose is to show teens that the God of the universe, Jesus Christ, loves them deeply.
Teens in Northwest Indiana are our ministry.
You will find Young Life leaders at area school events and sports functions. You see them volunteering at local schools. They are sitting over a cup of coffee or a bag of fries. They are listening. They are earning the right to be heard.
Young Life is a local missionary group whose goal is to continue meeting the “next kid”, creating healthy friendships, and then journeying with them towards a relationship with the God of the Universe. We bring kids together by hosting Open Gym Club, Half Price Coffee / Smoothy days, Campaigners (a weekly bible discussion), Serve events and trips, and a week at one of our resort style Young Life Camps.
Young Life can never have too many leaders. If you love teens and Jesus, you should join us. We are right outside your door.
Daniel and his wife Debby live in Munster. They are both passionate about ministry. Debby works as a Children’s Ministry Director at a local church, while Daniel does outreach work with teens. They have four adult children. Danielle, Caitlyn, Gabrielle and Aidan.
Jake & Madison Ehrlich
Campus Outreach Indianapolis
email: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
Jake and Madison Ehrlich have been serving with Campus Outreach at IUPUI (Indiana University Purdue University - Indianapolis) since 2018. Their primary focus is evangelism and discipleship with college students. Their vision is to “Glorify God by Building Laborers on the College Campus for the Lost World.” Students are met through the lunch room, hosting campus events, and intramural sports. Further, through relational evangelism, students have come to know our Lord, are established in their faith through bible studies and teaching, and learn how to share their faith with other students, family, coworkers, etc. The hope being that these students graduate with a firm foundation in Christ and go out into the world equipped to walk with God for a lifetime and make His Name known.
Jake and Madison both became Christians and were discipled through this ministry when they were college students. It was extremely impactful on their relationships with our Lord and gave them a passion to share Christ with college age men and women.
Jake is currently serving as the ministry team director for IUPUI and is also furthering his studies through seminary coursework. They have a son named Quill and are currently living in downtown Indianapolis.
