Here at Redeemer we believe in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world, starting in the High Desert, moving outward from Southern California  to the outermost parts of the world! (Matt 28:18-20 and Acts 1:8) As a church, we support many mission workers who are doing just that.
On this page you will find information on all the mission workers we support, where they serve, what their ministries, are and how you can be involved with them in praying, giving and going. Some do not display their full name or a picture because they are in a sensitive area of the world and need to be protected.  God knows who they are and they still need your prayers desperately! Take the time to read about each one and pray for the requests listed. Many still have financial needs so pray about joining their support team and help them fulfill the ministry God has given them.

interested in serving? fill out the form.

Dawn Hamrick and Cheryl Markowitz are our Missions  Ministry Coordinators and are available to help you engage with our mission workers and their ministries as well as get involved in missions here at Redeemer and around the world! Have a question or want to get involved? Send them an email at outreach@redeemerhd.com or catch one of them at church on Sunday.
