High Pointe Church of Christ of McKinney, TX     
Evangelistic Training Schools

One aspect of the Foreign Evangelism efforts at High Pointe is focused on helping institutions all over the world that are dedicated to the education and preparation of evangelists in their native countries.


There are wonderful individuals and teams of missionaries which are sent out from our fellowship from the U.S.A.  But the numbers of those individuals dedicating their lives to this service is dwindling and the funds needed to send Americans to a foreign country grows every year.


By supporting these educational institutions, we are helping to develop and grow evangelists from the countries where these schools are located.  The training schools supported by High Pointe through the Harvest Sunday contributions are listed below:


South Pacific Bible College - David Nelson and Steve Raine

Tauranga, New Zealand

At the South Pacific Bible College, (SPBC), students receive training in the Biblical text and ministry.

Barnabas Mission - Sandy Detherage

The Barnabas Mission has been established to: Seek those who want to know God and to Build up the body of Christ. To accomplish this task, there are several aspects to this ministry.

(1) Leadership training is being provided to the indigenous people of Papua New Guinea and Cambodia.

(2)  Mentoring is taking place through partnership with Abilene Christian University and the Worldwide Witness program.

(3)  Collaborative leadership is provided to the South Pacific Bible College, in Tauranga, New Zealand, through participation on the school board of trustees. This school then trains and sends it’s graduates around the world to share the Gospel message.

(4)  Opportunities for serving the people of Cambodia are opening up for teaching, leadership training, and caring for the physical needs of children. We look forward to new opportunities to work with Dennis and Sharon Welch in this great work!

Just as Jesus came into the world to seek and to save the lost, the Barnabas Mission is not bound by geography. We will continue to, “Go where God calls, when He calls,” that everyone might have the opportunity to hear about God’s love!
