Mission To the World: England Church Planting

Rob and Jenny Ilderton both came to faith at an early age and have long had an interest in serving in missions. Rob grew up in a pastor’s home in South Carolina and was called to pastoral ministry while on a mission trip to Tanzania during high school. Jenny grew up on a farm in Illinois and felt God’s calling to missions through several trips to Europe during and after college.

God brought their lives together in 2006 while Rob was completing his M.Div. at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. Upon his graduation in 2007, they moved to Lancaster, PA where Rob served with Reformed University Fellowship as the campus minister at Millersville University and Jenny volunteered in women’s, children’s and music ministry at their local church. In that time, God has grown their family and their desire to serve overseas.

In 2012 they were called to serve with Mission to the World in England. Where they will be assisting British church planters in planting Gospel proclaiming churches. Their first two years will be in London where they will work with an established church and develop a long-term church planting partnership.

Rob and Jenny have three children: Miriam (6), Gus (4), and Lottie (18 months)

Word of Messiah Ministries: Charlotte, NC

Sam Nadler was born in Queens, New York, into a Jewish family, being Bar Mitzvahed as a young man in the usual custom. However, shortly after this event, he gave up on any religious activities and spent his teen years in rebellion. He served a stint in Vietnam, returning as a drug user and seller and eventually wound up in California. It was there he first met a group of Christian believers, including some Jews who followed Jesus. In 1972, Sam himself became a follower of the Messiah and eventually went to Bible college. Soon after he met and married his wife, Miriam. Together, for more than 40 years, they have brought the Good News to Jewish people around the world through their organization, Word of Messiah Ministries.

Both Robbie and Lydia have a heart for sharing the gospel with teenagers and love seeing growth in their knowledge and love for Jesus.

In 2013, the Lord called the Sweets to serve in St. Andrews, Scotland as part of MTW's Global Youth and Family Ministries (GYFM). GYFM exists to serve the global church in engaging the emerging generation with the gospel across. The Sweets will focus their efforts on serving with a local evangelical church plant, encouraging and equipping European leaders for next generation ministry, and will pursue ministry opportunities with the missionary kids serving throughout Europe. Please pray for the Sweets and their vision of reaching the next generation for Christ.

Brookstone Schools

Brookstone Schools offer an opportunity for parents who want a choice in how they educate their children, but are unable to afford a private Christian education. Our students learn not only facts, but how to use this knowledge in all aspects of their lives. They are learning to be polite, mature, disciplined scholars, and leaders who live in accordance with Judeo-Christian values.

We are a non-denominational Christian school with over 100 students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Eighty-five percent of our students are eligible for free or reduced lunch program. Our 2013-14 annual budget is $1,190,000. We collect approximately 6% of this budget in student tuition and fees. The remainder is received from donations by individual supporters, businesses, churches and foundations.

We invite you to visit the school, come meet the children, and join our community of friends who are helping to change Charlotte one child at a time.

If you are interested in volunteering or supporting this ministry, please contact Laura Townsend.
