Sending Agency/Organization:

Global Outreach International


Carol & Jerry work in support of missions around the world. Since early 2016, they have consulted and worked with GO. As our Pastoral Member Care Director, Jerry teaches, pastors and mentors GO missionaries around the globe. Carol serves as our Clinical Member Care Director. She counsels, teaches, and helps GO missionaries access resources for mental and spiritual health in both routine and crisis situations. Together they offer training for sending churches to join GO in caring well for global workers through the Barnabas Initiative. Their daughter, (Ma)Ria grew up at CHBC and after serving in a church plant in Downtown Detroit she will be back for Fall 2019 as she prepares to leave for church planting in Toronto.

Prayer Requests:


  • Pray for our over 340 global workers that we serve through Global Outreach in 50 countries as well as those from dozens of other organizations to whom we also provide care.
  • Pray for God’s protection over GO: The Board, the Home Office Staff of whom we are a part.
  • Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as GO’s Home Office grows and restructures. We have doubled in size over the past 4 years.
  • Pray for God’s on-going provision through His people financially. We have ALWAYS had our travel expenses covered and we are so grateful. Every $25 per month gift goes to our work because of GO’s 100% pass through policy. No overhead supports our work.


  • Pray for wisdom and endurance as we travel across the world.  Carol & Jerry are frequently apart, sometimes for weeks at a time and we need your support.
  • Pray for our focus on Christ that we would rely on the Holy Spirit for strength rather than our own.
  • Pray for sweetness this fall as we have 3 adults and 3 cats learning to live together again.
  • Pray for our neighbors and friends who also support us as we travel by taking care of the mail, the cats, and sometimes intervene for household needs when we are on the road.
