Encourage a Missionary
Our church traces its heritage to the founding of the Head of Christiana Church in 1706. We have always had a strong conviction regarding the centrality of missions in God’s plan of redemption. Indeed, the congregation left the mainline presbyterian church in the 1930′s in a desire to remain faithful to its missional roots. We give 25-30% of our gross receipts to missions. Our missionaries need your prayers and encouragement. Below are links to information on our mission partners. We encourage you to pray for them and write to them. If contact information is provided you may write directly to the missionaries. Otherwise, you can communicate through the missions committee. Email David Rose.

ADoH is a gospel ministry with gospel content, wrapped up in physical love, counseling, care, and material provisions for local families & families to be.

- Irwin, Kirk
- Kirk has been on staff with Campus Crusade for 15 years. The last seven he has been in the New York City campus ministry. Once in NYC he was drawn to the art students in the top art schools there. He saw a opportunity to use the unique talents of these student artists to not only minister within Crusade but to prepare themselves to go back into the arts world and be a much needed influence for Christ .”We were neither giving them platforms to use their creativity in the context of the ministry , nor helping them integrate their art and faith in preparation for going into the 'real world.'" Since that time nearly 100 college students have participated in a Creative Student Ministry called transFORM.
Another aspect of Kirk’s ministry is with the International Arts Movement (IAM) . This ministry was started by
Makoto Fujimura, a successful painter and member of the National Council for the Arts, It is IAMs desire to bring cultural renewel to the hearts and minds of people via the arts that are fully united to the claims and life of Jesus Christ. Kirk has been honored to be on the board of this organization and served for a time as President. This is a fast growing ministry and many important contacts are being made through this organization. Kirk has also been asked by Crusade to serve on several international committees involving creativity.
In October ‘07 Kirk will be married to Miss Sarah Kennedy, a beautiful red headed Texan who is presently a graphic designer at Crusade Headquarters in Orlando , FL. They hope to integrate their talents and calling and minister in NYC.

- Stanton, Dal & Beth
Dal, raised in south Florida, was saved by the Lord when he was 18, and was called into ministry soon after that. His wife Beth, a covenant child, was raised in Mexico, the daughter of a PCA missionary and pastor. Dal and Beth graduated from Covenant College in 1978 and Reformed Theological Seminary in 1982.

Dal pastored two churches (one planted) before responding to the call to serve with Mission to the World in 1993.
After serving in Ukraine for several years with MTW, the Stantons served in Spain where God used their church-planting and leadership experience to establish the Madrid Church Planting Team. Arriving in Bulgaria in 2007, their initial focus was the development of EuroScope in Europe. After 1 1/2 years in Bulgaria, the Lord has led their ministry into another direction as Dal currently serves as the team leader for the Church Planting Team in Bulgaria.
MTW Bulgaria’s primary focus is church planting and renewal through community outreach and development. By identifying both the areas of brokenness and opportunity in the community, ministries are developed to address these areas. By tangibly demonstrating the love of Christ through various means the aim is to make known the hope of Christ and introduce unbelievers to community of faith. Community outreach ministries currently include ESL, university ministry, Daughters of Bulgaria (prostitution), disabled children and medical outreach primarily to elderly. In addition, theological training is being facilitated for the future leaders of the church with whom MTW partners, the Union of Evangelical Congregational Churches of Bulgaria, founded in the 1800s.
- Sunday Breakfast Mission
- "In 1893, the group called the Christian Endeavor Society of Wilmington decided that they would attempt to reach out to the homeless men and “tramps” of Delaware. They wanted to bring them to church on Sundays. Hearing about a similar effort in nearby Philadelphia, they went there to study it.
They soon established an effort to provide:
- A meeting each Sabbath morning for the homeless men and tramps
- A free meal for these men
- Effort to find work for these men.
Their ministry opened at 7th and Lombard in late 1893. But soon, in January 1894, they began to provide shelter.
Through the years and several locations, the Mission has gone way beyond “Sunday Breakfast” to reach out to children through Sunday schools and women through “Mother’s Clubs.” They also continued to expand their ministry to men. All of this effort carries the same Christian emphasis and content of that early Christian Endeavor Society: To provide rest for the body and peace for the soul.
- Shelter for more than 165 homeless men nightly.
- Long-term Discipleship Program for 45 men suffering from homelessness, addiction, and other major life problems.
- Community meals for over 200 men, women, boys and girls nightly as well as food boxes for over one hundred needy families monthly, breakfasts for homeless men, and lunch for program people.
- Free clothing and furniture with counseling for needy families through our Community Outreach.
- Christian worship and Bible studies daily.
- Great Thanksgiving Food Outreach providing over 500 annually with large food boxes, turkeys, pies, rolls, and access to other services.
- Back-to-School Rally providing encouragement, positive messages, and backpacks with school supplies annually.
- Career Education Center giving hundreds of individuals opportunity to learn to read, graduate from high school, and plan a new work life.
- Thrift Store Ministry giving underprivileged families and individuals the opportunity to acquire desired materials unavailable otherwise because of cost.
- Vehicle Donation and Resale providing low-cost vehicles to low-income families."

Until November of 2001 he was Mission to the World's Regional Director for urban South America. Currently he is the leader of a new resource team for Latin America. One of the tasks of this team is supporting our missionaries in the development of training programs for new national leadership.
Mission to the World has encouraged him to pursue further studies that would be helpful in the fulfillment of this new position. He is currently dedicating half his time to pursuing a doctorate in Organizational Development at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The other half of his time is dedicated to helping resource the missionaries and national leaders in Latin America.
The Waldeckers will be living in the States until Gary finishes his program of study. However, Gary will be making trips to Latin America during this time.

- Young, Steve & Sarah
- In 1991 the Youngs went to Melbourne, Australia to begin a Japanese language church in cooperation with the Presbyterian Church of Victoria. They also established bridges between the Presbyterian Church of Australia and the Presbyterian Church in Japan by inviting Japanese ministers to participate in the work and by encouraging Australians to minister in Japan. This was accomplished in December 1999. The Youngs' mission since 2001 has been to establish a similar Japanese ministry in Perth, Western Australia, by making contacts with residents to eventually establish a church.
