Missions

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”

Walnut Hill Bible Church has a heart for missions … since the 1940’s missionaries have been supported both in prayer and financially by the members of this church.  It is the desire of WHBC to continue upholding these faithful servants of the Lord as they seek to spread the Gospel to a needy world.

Missionaries supported by WHBC

We have several missionaries located in areas of the world where the Christian faith is not allowed to be shared or practiced.  For their protection we do not publish the identity of the missionaries or the location where they are working.  However, you can help support these valiant servants with your prayers.  If you would like further information about these missionaries, contact the church office.
