About Our Missions

Santa Rosa Christian Church has a long-standing commitment to give 10% of its tithe income to a variety of local and foreign ministries and missionaries. All have relational ties to Santa Rosa Christian Church and align with our vision. Below is a description of the various Missions we support

Foreign Ministries

Emmanuel Ministries–Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

Emmanuel Ministries provides a refuge for families needing a safe shelter, meals, medical and dental care, and education for each child. Our church has supported Emmanuel Children’s Home (formerly known as Hogar de Ninos) 40 of the 50 years it has been in operation.

The home provides hope, love, safety, food, and care for over 100 children annually in one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Every Christmas our church family provides Christmas gifts for each child in the home. In addition, families provide monthly sponsorship for children. JR Young serves on the Board of Directors for this ministry. Learn more about Emmanuel Ministries.

Voz Que Clama Mission–Costa Rica

While the name of the mission may not be familiar to people, the missionaries Hector Rojas and Daniel Salas are known and loved by many. This mission’s purpose is to be a bridge of help in their local community. The bridge will connect those who have to those who have little by visiting, hosting visitors who work alongside them, holding special events, and doing works of service.

In the summer of 2008, a number of SRCC teenagers and leaders visited the mission to assist with painting and construction projects. During the 2009-10 school year, Karlita Madrigal came to Santa Rosa from Costa Rica for her senior year of high school at Santa Rosa Christian School. She lived with the Steve Marshall family during the school year.

JR Young and Steve Marshall serve on the Board of Directors for this ministry. We join other churches in Sonoma County in supporting this ministry. Visit their website, click here…

Church Family Abroad

Jeana Wiemeyer / YWAM – Australia & Papua New Guinea

Jeana Wiemeyer has been serving with YWAM Medical Ships since 2010. She splits her time between the organisation’s headquarters in Townsville, Australia and the MV YWAM PNG, a medical ship operation in remote areas of Papua New Guinea (PNG).

Watch this video to learn more about what she’s a part of: YWAM Medical Ships 2016

While PNG is only about 100 miles from Australia’s shore, the two nations face very different struggles. In PNG, 1 in 13 children die before they reach the age of five, and in some rural areas, 1 in 7 women are dying in childbirth. Malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malnutrition are all too common. The aim of the ship is to bring hope and life through medical care, training, and education.

When Jeana is on board the ship, she serves as Ship Manager. Jeana’s website (including donation options and newsletter sign up) is www.jeanaw.yolasite.com.
