Supported Missions Organizations
Mission to the World (MTW)
MTW is the global missions sending agency of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
Vision: The Gospel of the Kingdom Advancing throughout the World. We want the gospel to spread throughout the world, the Church to grow, Satan's kingdom to be destroyed, and Christ's reign to be extended to the ends of the earth.
Mission: Making Disciples among all Nations. We are called to be obedient to the Great Commission by teaching people to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior, to be baptized, and to obey all that Jesus commands.
Reformed University Fellowship (RUF)
RUF is the official campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America. More than just a ministry on the university campus, RUF seeks to be a ministry for the university. We strive to serve in this unique stage of a student’s life in the world they live in, exploring together how the Lordship of Christ informs every area of life.
Mission: RUF exists to announce and demonstrate to the world the words and work of Jesus. In addition, we strive to provide the basis for the transformation of the world and the “healing of the nations.”
Tun Tavern Fellowship (TTF)
TTF is a network of Christians in and around the Marine Corps. We are a biblically based non-denominational ministry. Believing that church oversight is crucial, we are an integrated auxiliary ministry of Crossroads PCA of Woodbridge, VA, which provides financial accountability and oversight.
Mission: To build and maintain relationships that support and encourage followers of Jesus Christ in and around the Marine Corps to seek and glorify God in all aspects of their lives and in the furtherance of His kingdom.
Onslow Pregnancy Resource Center (OPRC)
Onslow Pregnancy Resource Center is a Christ-centered ministry offering life-affirming alternatives to abortion by supporting women facing the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy, promoting sexual integrity, and offering post-abortion support.
Vision: Onslow Pregnancy Resource Center envisions a community where the sanctity and dignity of human life are respected, children are nurtured in strong families, and sexual integrity is valued.
Jonathan and Beka Hastings serve the Lord in Atlanta, GA, proclaiming the Good News of Christ to the refugees living in Clarkston, GA. Working with MTW, they have opened a fund for mercy ministries and evangelistic materials. Additionally, as their team has been expanding, they are also planning on opening a new Ministry Center separate from their current Learning Center. Their work is intentionally focused on the large number of Muslim political refugees that have been sent to Atlanta - one of a few refugee cities in the United States - due to their past experience as missionaries in the Middle East.

Phillip and Kay Luther MTW Greece
The Luthers arrived in Greece January 2012 in direct partnership with Panagoitis Kantartzis, pastor of the First Greek Evangelical Church and visionary for the church plant movement in Athens. Phillip and Kay serve in the first church plant, which began with a small core of people from the mother church who started meeting for worship in the southern, affluent suburbs of Glyfada in the Fall of 2010. There are now two other church plants meeting for worship services, one in Exarchia and the other in Agia Paraskevi. Two Bible studies and various community outreaches are laying the foundation for a fourth church in Kypseli, the most densely populated area of Europe with at least 17 nationalities. Phillip and George Tolias (pastor of the growing church in Glyfada) are committed to strong biblical teaching and developing outreaches to bring the truth of the gospel.
Matt and Sarah were high school sweethearts and married in 1995. After completing undergraduate degrees at Columbia International University, they served for two years in Botswana, where Matt worked as a mission pilot. As they met believers throughout southern Africa, God impressed upon the Haynes the need for training and discipleship in the African church. After returning to the U.S., Matt worked in the airline industry and ministered as an elder in the local church for six years. Sarah served the church using her gifts in administration and teaching. It was through their work in the local church that God once again led them to pursue vocational ministry. Covenant Theological Seminary was their next step in preparation, and Matt graduated with an M.Div. in 2010. Matt teaches at the Bible Institute of South Africa in Cape Town and in the surrounding townships. Sarah is active in discipleship and hospitality. Their goal is to work alongside national Christian leaders to help meet the great need for well-trained leadership in the African church.

Jeremiah and Leslee met and started dating in high school, before Jeremiah enlisted in the Marine Corps, and later married in 1996. After serving 4 years in the infantry, Jeremiah desired to transition to full-time missions work; however, they sensed God leading them to continue serving in the Marine Corps. After 8.5 years as an enlisted Marine, Jeremiah was commissioned as an officer. Now after 23 years of military service, God is granting Jeremiah the desires of his heart by leading him (and his family) to serve as a Network Missionary with TTF. In God’s sovereignty, the last 23 years of enlisted and officer experience within the infantry, aviation, administration, and special operations communities have been used as training and preparation for the Davis family to minister to Marines, Sailors, and their families at Camp Johnson (Administration), Camp Geiger (Infantry), New River Air Station (Aviation), and Stone Bay (MARSOC), in a full-time ministry occupation. Their home-based ministry will focus on evangelism, discipleship, and helping military families thrive (marriage, parenting, parent-child and sibling relationships).
