Thornapple supports over 30 individual missionaries who serve around the globe. In addition we support various missions organizations and sponsor adult short term mission trips.
In recent years we have sent small groups of adults on short term missions trips to the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Mexico. And we are open to sending more as God leads our people to serve around the world.
The names of our missionaries are not put on our website because for many, being in the public domain could be dangerous. You may find information about the missionaries we support in the church lobby. The information includes copies of the latest missionary letters. Use it to familiarize yourself with our missionaries and help yourself to copies of their letters.
Missionary Prayer letters electronically: If you would like to receive prayer letters that are sent to Thornapple electronically from the missionaries, please send a request for this along with your email address to Pastor Karen Ingebretson.
