We have many missionaries around the globe, including some in undisclosed locations. You will see our current mission efforts below.
After spending several years in Cameroon, Greg and Meg Trihus continue their work with Wycliffe Bible Translators. They are now working on various projects here to support the translation of the Bible into various languages around the world.
Nagaland is a unique state in India, predominately Christian yet surrounded by some of the most unreached people groups in the world. As such, it sits strategically as a catalyst to reach Asia with the Gospel. Khetoshi and Lovily Chishi were members of Matthew Road Baptist Church until they returned to their homeland to assist with the theological training institute in Kohima. Since their return, MRBC has gone to Nagaland to assist with leadership training conferences, medical clinics and training for pastor's wives.
Constitucion: In many ways Matthew Road's involvement in international missions began in Constitucion, Mexico as we joined Christian Hands in Action (CHIA) on a medical/dental mission trip. It is there we met Eldon Tudor, a 20 year missionary in that town. Since then, MRBC has made multiple trips to minister to the local church and orphanage in Constitucion.
Flores Migon: In 2009, a pastor was identified to plant a church in Flores Migon. Since the initial Tuesday night Bible studies started in his home, the church has continued to grow. Dozens of individuals have been baptized since the start of this mission.
Juarez: MRBC has partnered with Raymundo in Juarez, a very dangerous place in desperate need of churches. We continue to pray for him as he reaches out to those in need.
Pastor's conferences: Years ago God began to place in our church a desire to disciple the pastors in Mexico. Many of the pastors have limited resources in terms of theological training. In 2008, MRBC hosted our first pastor's conference in Constitucion with 20 persons in attendance. Since then, MRBC has hosted a conference in Hausteca and Rio Bravo, as well as other locations in Mexico. God has been so gracious to allow us to participate in this ministry done in His name.

The devastation of war, human trafficking, ethnic cleansing, and poverty combined to create one of the worst human disasters of the 21st century. During the last two decades over 2,000,000 people have been killed in a war instigated by Muslim radicals against Christians and others in southern Sudan. There are over 1 million orphans residing in southern Sudan, with virtually no orphanages. Matthew Road has committed to helping with the medical care of many of these orphans by partnering with Make Way Partners.
