Missions

“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19


Jesus Himself was the first missionary! He did not sit by passively and let those who happened to be interested in His teaching come to Him. He went out where the sick, the sorrowing, and the sad were, and expounded His message of joy, healing, and salvation. Even at a tender age, He went to the Temple and “taught” the doctors and lawyers who were entrenched in the old traditions. He found His way to the seaside and intruded upon the life of the commonest of laborers, saying, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Wherever He went He challenged, uprooted, and changed men. And at length they nailed Him to a cross because He had upset their selfish, secure, self-righteous way of life. Not only was Jesus a missionary, but He pledged His followers to be missionaries, too!

Candlelight supports a variety of Missions around the globe with the vision of being Ambassadors and “Fishers of Men” by showing His love and taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.

Brian & Rachel Rich

ETHNOS 360 – Brazil


Brian & Rachel Rich are part of a team of missionaries trying to reach the "Maki" tribal people. It will take years to learn the language, culture, and beliefs of the people, and then present the truth to them by teaching them the Bible in their own language. The Riches desire to see the church reach out to other villages in their language group, teaching God's Word, sharing the gospel and discipling those who believe. In order to have a mature church, the believers need the Bible in their own language, so Bible translation will be one of the long term tasks of the missionary team. They want the church to be run by indigenous leaders so that the work can continue long after the missionaries are gone.
