Reaching Out to a Hurting World is What Ignite Christian Church is All About!
As a church family we are excited to be supporting Christian workers and ministries around the world. Here's a selection of some of the missions we support...
The Navalta Family, Philippines
This incredible family work tirelessly across the northern Philippine Island of Luzon to bring the good news to the poor in villages and towns in Pangasinan. They have many churches, a Bible College, plus a Christian school and medical facilities. They especially reach out to the poor and needy in their area, planting new churches in several villages around the region. pastor Welly Navalta has an excellent reputation locally as a Council member and church planter, and he is ably assisted by his sons Jonathan and Nehemiah.
Lily House is a local charity dedicated to turning around the lives of young women in crisis. It emphasises training for these young women, many of who are coming out of domestic violence, drug abuse or pregnancy.
At Lily House, the women live in the facility and undergo a series of training and counseling options, helping them to overcome their problems to become productive members of our society, and great mothers.
Coast Church gives every month to Lily House, and also makes our counseling services available to those who need it.
Mark and Carolyn Ossola, Bible Translation
Mark and Carolyn are an integral part of Coast Church, and they work extensively with the Seed Project and Wycliffe Bible translators to translate the Bible into previously unknown languages.
While much of their work is in Africa, they are constantly traveling around the world organising Bible translations for people groups who do not have the Bible available to them.
Being a part of reaching the world with the Word of God fits perfectly with our ethos here at Coast Church, and we are delighted to partner with Mark and Carolyn
106Five FM, Life Changing Radio
Pastor Darin appears frequently on a number of programs. We believe that this radio station is an effective way to reach out and touch the lives of those who would otherwise never attend our church, so we are proud to partner with 106Five to reach our local community.
Alpha Crusis Bible College
Australian Christian Churches have heir own Bible College to train and equip Pastors and leaders into the future.
Coast Church is thrilled to be able to support our own Bible College, knowing that as we invest in it we are investing in the future of the Gospel in our great nation, and around the world.
We also support the efforts of Alpha Crusis to become Australia's first, fully fledged Christian University.
Compassion Child Sponsorship
Coast Church, and in particular Coast Kids, sponsors Baby Kumari, who lives in Kasura in India.
Our sponsorship provides Bible teaching, health check ups and vaccination, as well as education, HIV awareness and a host of other community activities. It is our chance to touch and change the life of a child, and we appreciate the opportunity to help.
