Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Harbor Churches are committed to helping people find their way back to God through our broken and hurting world! We do this through global outreach, local missions, and church multiplication.

Global Mission Partners
Harbor Churches partners and supports international organizations and missionaries around the world. We also send teams to meet the physical and spiritual needs of families and children who are at risk in other countries.

Through our relationship with Yakuv Gurung at the Nepali Speaking Community Church, Harbor Churches has helped to start Jibit Asha International – which means “living hope,” to plant churches across the plains area from east to west in the south of Nepal. We currently sponsor 10 church planters and provide leadership to Jibit Asha and training for church planters.
Releasing Children from Poverty in Jesus’ Name
In partnership with Compassion International, Harbor Churches sponsors almost 400 children. Many of these children are concentrated with partners in Ethiopia at 2 Child Development and Child Survival Programs and in Uganda in our partnership with the Anglican Church in the Mityanna District. We occassional participate as well in Complementary Interventions to provide educational space, bathrooms, and vocational development.
We have a number of partnerships in areas of the world that are unsafe for Christians and where evangelism is illegal. For this reason, it would be putting our missionaries in jeopardy to publish their names and work publicly. Please pray for Christians around the world who are being persecuted and who find it dangerous and life-threatening to share their faith publicly.
Matt and Anabella Parker, along with their 2 year old son Dustin, serve as Missionaries with the Reach Beyond, a global mission organization. They have been serving in Latin America since 2000. Matt is the Director of New Media for the Latin America region, responsible for maintaining all of Reach Beyond Latin American websites. Matt also directs Control-Z, an internet radio and current issues website reaching out to Spanish-speaking teens. Control-Z has become a pre-evangelistic tool, directing interested listeners to a local youth-focused organization for follow through. In addition, Matt also heads up a project called “Players of Hope”, where he and others prepare & distribute pre-programmed solar powered mp3 players to reach and disciple along the Amazon in Brazil. These players provide on-going Bible resources communities where there are few missionaries, pastors or Christian radio. The players contain audio Bible and Christian training materials.
In an extension of an ongoing partnership with Pastor Stephen Kazimba over many years, we were able to build the Lusaaba primary school and are participating in partnership with Compassion International in Mityana, supporting almost 100 children. We are currently partnering in church planting with the Anglican Church of Uganda in the Mityana Diocese.
Next Gen Missionaries
One of things we value is the development, support, resourcing, and equipping of future leaders in the church through short term global missions. For that reason, we support young people who are passionate for the gospel and are willing to give 6 months or more of their lives to missions in a global setting.
Haley Hulsing, as she puts it, “Once I graduated high school, I decided to take a short 6 months to do a Discipleship Training School with Youth With a Mission…and, well, 3 years later I graduated from YWAM with a degree in Christian Missions Leadership.” After returning home, and sensing an ongoing calling to missions, Haley responded to an invitation to return to YWAM in Australia in January of 2017 to serve as a leader to create and lead a Discipleship Training School for YWAM Toowoomba. A Discipleship Training School is an international, interdenominational 6-month mission training program primarily for young adults. It is 3 months of learning and growing personally and setting a firm foundation of discipleship in your life, and 3 months of taking that knowledge on an overseas outreach (mission trip). Haley will lead be leading the development of this training environment for YWAM in Toowoomba.
