When you believe in something so great as God's love, you can't help but share it with everyone you meet!
And even more than that, you are convinced that God's love that reached to man in His Son, Jesus Christ, is the answer for all people in the world to a purposed, peaceful, and fulfilled life...both now and for eternity, connected with their Creator.
As Jesus' followers, we are called by Jesus to take His message everywhere and to everyone!
Everything we SAY, and everything we DO becomes infused by the Holy Spirit to share the "good news" of our Savior.
That's what the "Outreach" Ministries at HCC is all about!
Take a look and see what great ministries we are supporting with energy, prayer, people, and finances...
HERE at HOME and AROUND THE WORLD!

EUGENE & MIRA POGORELOV
FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATHLETES
Eugene and Mira had been ministering in the Eastern European country of Ukraine previous to the war breaking out there with Russia. Their desire is to continue to bring the life-giving, life-changing truth of Jesus Christ to the youth of Eurasia using the platform of sports to spread the gospel. Theirs is a holistic ministry that helps young people grow in faith, community, health, education, and physical sport integrated with Biblical concepts and foundation. The war with Russia compromised their ministry in Ukraine and put the lives of many there in great danger. They continue to remain in contact with the youth and leaders in Ukraine by internet, doing Bible Studies and prayer with them. We prayerfully support their efforts to see where God may use them in the healing of that nation. Eugene grew up in the neighboring country of Moldova, speaks Russian, Romanian, and English, is university educated in physics/sciences plus sport ministry, and has extensive Bible course training. Mira is Ukrainian, the daughter of a Pastor, and an accomplished musician. They have preschool sons, Martin and Elijah. They moved back to Moldova in late March 2023 to begin work there with Fellowship of Christian Athletes reaching young people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the platform of Basketball and sports.

HCC YOUTH MISSION TRIPS AMOR MINISTRIES
Since 2001, HCC has taken high school and college young adults on mission trips to Baja California, Mexico to build homes and hope for families in the Tijuana/Tecate/Rosarito communities. We partner with AMOR Ministries while in Mexico. In these areas where adequate housing is scarce, these 12 day trips make a world of difference for families in need. It also provides an incredible learning, serving, and growing experience for our youth. Every other year students meet, plan, raise funds, and prepare for the mission. The most recent trip was June 2023 right after school was out. They usually go every other year this same time frame.
(More information available on YOUTH page of this website)

HCC MEN'S MISSION TRIPS AMOR MINISTRIES
The men of HCC have also made this road trip to Mexico to build homes and hope. It's a great time with guys over the age of 18 who pay their own way and not only enjoy their time on the road together, constructing the home, but are challenged in their own faith and what it means to serve the Lord by serving others. NEXT TRIP is planned for OCTOBER 2023. If you are interesting in participating, contact: BOB STRUTZ, Trip Director
HCC couples/all adults/family MISSION TRIPS AMOR MINISTRIES
