Summit Church helps support four ministries on the mission field. In helping support these ministries through finances and prayer, we are reaching out beyond our world to help hurting people in other countries by sharing the gospel and ministering to their physical needs. We support another missionary couple, but we are unable to display their info due to restrictions in the country they minister in. If you would like to support our missionaries, click here.

The Heart's Desire Fund is designated to bless women on the mission field. We recognize the vast difference between the luxuries of the United States and the lack of simple conveniences in other countries. We also realize how blessed we are and the sacrifices women on the mission field make. We ask women on the mission field to suggest something that would be the desire of their heart. Some of the Heart's Desire gifts we have given have been perfume, airplane tickets home to see relatives, furniture, cameras, and appliances. For our current Heart's Desire lady, CLICK HERE.
