Christ encouraged His disciples to spread the Gospel from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and even to the ends of the earth. As His disciples today, we believe our vision of One More should start at home but reach the globe. Living missionally in our neighborhoods is supplemented by a commitment to give at least 20% of our donations to support local, regional, national, and international ministry opportunities. Here is the current list:

Our efforts are mostly concentrated on these unreached communities.

Many residents of this area are blue-collar workers who moved into the community to get away from the stresses, pressures, and brokenness of life. After seeing the need in their community, the Hoyts felt a call to reach the forgotten and un-churched in their area. Their outreach takes them to small towns, urban multi-housing communities, schools, and care centers. Some of their ministries include after-school Bible outreaches, mentoring and discipleship opportunities, a care center ministry, and neighborhood chaplaincy.

TCM INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE - Tony Twist
We are dedicated to taking Christ To Millions. We have found that the most effective way to do this is by training Christians for ministry. TCM comes alongside Christians who are leading in their own countries and have a passion for reaching their people for Christ. Through our institute we can develop a Christian leader for ministry for only 1% of the cost it would take to send a U.S. missionary to that same country. Since these individuals already know the cultures and languages, they are able to have successful ministries and are equipped for a lifetime of service. Our work covers an area four times the size of the US, mainly in Europe and the Middle East. The campus is located in Austria.
VERVE CHURCH - Vince Antonucci
A church for people who don’t like church. Located one mile from the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ask someone what comes to mind when you say “Christian” and you’ll hear words like, “boring,” and “judgmental.” Yet when Jesus explained why he came he said, “I have come that you may have life to the full” (John 10:10). Verve means liveliness, energy, passion, and vitality. We’re trying to restore what Jesus was after. We believe that following Jesus is the greatest adventure life has to offer and leads to lively, energetic, passionate, vital life. It leads to verve. Ask someone what comes to mind when you say “Church” and you’ll hear words like, “religion,” “meaningless rituals,” “holier-than-thou attitudes.” That’s why we say we’re stripping church. We’re removing all that unnecessary garbage and letting it be what it’s supposed to be: loving God and loving people.
