His Place Church has three
primary foreign missions projects: Two in Mexico and
one in the Philippines:
The northern Mexico project is at Terrazas de Valle,
near Tijuana. Each year for 8 to 10 days in February,
Pastor Nick takes a work team (15 to 20 volunteers)
to Terrazas by driving several vans. During the last
few years, the teams have completed a youth facility
adjacent to the church.
The southern Mexico project is at Cofradia and Arrayanes.
This is home base for His Place’s own missionaries,
Jay and Faith TenBrink. Each year for 6 to10 days in
November, Pastor Nick takes a work team of up to 30
volunteers to this project. It requires flying into
Mazatlan and taking buses into the interior. During
the last several years, the teams have built a church
in Arrayanes and remodeled a house for the TenBrinks.
The Philippines project is centered around Calew on
the Island of Luzon where a church, Bible College and
daycare facility are situated in a somewhat remote jungle
area. There are numerous outreaches that have developed
from this project, which are visited if possible. Pastor
Nick takes a very limited group (5 absolute maximum)
to the Philippines for 10 to 14 days in January. Opportunities
to take this trip may be limited by political activities
in the country. This trip consists of visiting and encouraging
our direct and indirect support projects in the Philippines.
