A “missionary” is one who is sent. This means all Christians are, by identity, missionaries because Jesus sent us out into the world just as the Father sent Him into it (Jn20:21).
Yet a reality is that the church in America has been blessed financially. Therefore, we believe it is both appropriate and imperative to support various agencies that are typically viewed as “missions”.
Our desire and prayer is that God will raise up missionaries within the body of New Life. Our goal will then be to support them as they serve God wherever He may lead them (e.g., a foreign country, inner cities, etc.).

Prairie View Christian Camp
To provide the setting and programs whereby youth and adults are influenced by the message of Jesus Christ toward a life-changing decision.
Statement of Faith
- We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man. They are the infallible Word of God and His revelation of Himself to all of creation and the authoratative rule of faith and conduct for mankind.
- We believe in the diety of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, and His victorious and atoning death through His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return to power and glory.
- We believe in baptism by immersion as taught in the New Testament. Therefore, all who repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior should seek to be baptized.
- We believe that the local church is the only “organization” that has the God-ordained authority to ordain men into the Gospel ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ and that every Christian and every Christian worker should be submissive to its authority and active in its work.

Ozark Christian College
VISION AND MISSION
The vision of Ozark Christian College is to glorify God by evangelizing the lost and edifying Christians worldwide. The mission of Ozark Christian College is to train men and women for Christian service as a degree-granting institution of biblical higher education. Emphasis is given to vocational preparation for preaching ministers, missionaries, worship ministers, youth ministers and children’s ministers. Biblical and practical training is also provided for those who will serve in the church in non-vocational roles such as elders, deacons, Bible school teachers and youth sponsors.
Ozark Christian College seeks to glorify God by doing his will. God’s truth we must “entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2). We are involved in declaring the wisdom of God (Ephesians 3:7-12). We share in the work of equipping “the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ…speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into him, who is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:12,13,15).
We accomplish this purpose of God stated by Paul: “God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. And we proclaim him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ. And for this purpose also I labor, striving according to his power, which mightily works within me” (Colossians 1:27-29). “The goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith” (I Timothy 1:5).

The International Conference on Missions began in 1948 as the National Missionary Convention of the Christian Churches/Church of Christ (NMC). In 1950 the NMC met on its own for the first time. What started as a conference for missionaries has grown to include thousands of people of all ages who are interested and involved in world missions. In 2012 the name was changed to the International Conference on Missions (ICOM) to better describe the conference.
ICOM has its roots in what is known in church history as The Restoration Movement that began in the early 19th century. This movement seeks the unity of all Christians based on the authority of the Bible for the evangelization of the world. ICOM recognizes that creeds and confessions of faith have at times been more divisive than unifying, but in light of its commitment to Scripture, ICOM believes that agreement on basic matters of faith is essential to carry out its mission.
The International Conference on Missions (ICOM) exists to Encourage, Equip and Enlist workers for the Harvest.
Established in 2010, Blackbox International is a faith-based, Christ-centered, not-for-profit organization that exists to holistically rehabilitate formerly sex-trafficked boys and young men.

We believe they will be restored from the hurt and confusion that has been inflicted upon them and one day become men who will change the world
In 2003, Rapha International began an aftercare program for underage female survivors who had been rescued from slavery and sexual exploitation in Battambang, Cambodia. Nineteen years later, Rapha is an international organization that has won the favor of the governments in the countries in which it works. The Rapha International model is to recruit and equip local staff who are qualified and passionate about combatting child slavery, sexual exploitation, and abuse in their own countries. Each of Rapha’s aftercare programs implement a holistic approach to healing.

Trash Mountain Project
Trash Mountain Project exists to develop Christ-centered environments for children and families living in trash dump communities worldwide.
WHO WE ARE
Established in 2009, Trash Mountain Project (TMP) is a U.S.-based non-profit organization that works internationally in developing countries and partners with local churches, individuals and organizations to bring sustainable change in communities that surround and/or depend on a landfill to live.
WHAT IS A TRASH DUMP COMMUNITY?
This is a community where many of the people make their livelihoods working each day at the landfill searching for recyclables and even food. Many times it is not only the parents that work but their children as well. These areas are severely poor, crime is high and they lack the most basic necessities including clean water and sanitation. We do not find communities like this in the United States due to regulations and human rights standards.
WHAT WE DO
We work stateside developing strategies and obtaining funding to assist our on-the-ground partners. We obtain donations through churches, individuals, organizations, grants and fundraisers. Each of our U.S-based staff live and work primarily here at home but travel internationally at times to work directly with our local partners. When the funding is available, our local partners carry out our combined plans in these communities in areas including, nutrition, discipleship, education and more.
