LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR. MAKE DISCIPLES. BUILD THE KINGDOM.

Messiah’s Jubilee (Isaiah 61)

The Spirit of the Lord God is on me because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners to proclaim the year of JUBILEE, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn…

Who We Are

DANIEL + CARRLEIGH

Daniel has a biblical studies degree from DBU and I (Carrleigh) have a background in graphic design. We were both called to be in ministry at a young age. Until now, we have both worked in various fields as well as serving in various capacities at our local church. Daniel worked as a youth pastor for 4 years and Carrleigh for 1 year. As a family, we value discipleship and living out the gospel’s freedom in front of others. We have been waiting for the “good work” that we felt like God set us apart for.In late Sep. 2019 God started moving our hearts to the harvest field and after conversations that only God could orchestrate we knew we were being called to go to Amsterdam. We know now all the singular seasons/events of life we’ve walked through were arranged for a greater purpose. We are excited about what God is going to do in the lives of the people of Amsterdam and are looking forward to being a part of it. Amsterdam is a spiritually ripe harvest of people who have pursued happiness and the world and found it to be empty. In the last 3 years we have seen over 60 baptisms of people coming out of all walks of life. We have 2 children, Peter (8) and Molly (5). We are expecting child #3 in December of 2024. We ask that you keep all of us in your prayers. Also, pray for the hearts of those we are going to work with and that they will be open to the Gospel and goodness of Jesus.

Daniel likes the outdoors and coffee darker than the Marianas Trench. Carrleigh speaks fluent movie quotes and likes the cream more than the coffee. Peter likes all things cars and dinosaurs. Molly likes eating raspberries by the container and snuggling with her baby dolls.

Credo Church

“Credo is a multi-ethnic community on a mission. We are driven by the things we love the most and deeply care for. These are our love for Jesus and our passion for the city of Amsterdam. Our mission is to make sure that everyone will know that they are loved and that their lives have a purpose.”We are partnering with this local church to reach the people of Amsterdam.

Why We Are GoingIt is highly likely that >99% of people living in Amsterdam will die and go to hell because they don’t know of God’s goodness or the true freedom he offers.

A survey from the year 2000 reports that 60% of the adult population of Amsterdam professed no affiliation with any church or other religion

The largest religion in Amsterdam is still Christianity (17%, of which Roman Catholics form the majority, with 10%)

Islam (currently 14%) is rapidly growing in popularity and is predicted to be the largest religious group within a few years.

HOW WE ARE REACHING THE COMMUNITYIn the post-Christian society that Amsterdam is, we aim to make meaningful connections and deep relationships. Our goal is to better the community by bettering the individual; because you love your neighbor well when you love yourself well.

 

Teaching

We will be teaching English and practical life skills such as budgeting and parenting classes. We also periodically teach in the church for devotionals or preachings on a Sunday morning.

 

Mentoring + Coaching

We will be mentoring those who come to faith in the church to healthy biblical discipleship. We meet in weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly meetings with those in our church to spend time in the Bible, follow Jesus in their daily life, work and relationships, and to serve in the local church.

 

Discipleship

We believe that discipleship is best accomplished through community and intentional living. Whether it is reading the Bible together, watching sermons, participating in life group, or simply having people for meals in our home. We consider all of this discipleship.
