Our Global Outreach

The Board of Global Outreach (GO) mobilizes the churches of NWYM to find ways to bless the people and nations where they live. It’s one of our answers to Jesus’ call to love God and love our neighbors, at home and throughout the world.

The GO Board serves as a global ministry mobilizing force within NWYM to support the ministry of Evangelical Friends Mission (EFM) as the primary agency for administrating, supervising and governing our global ministries. NWYM missionaries currently serving with EFM include the Howell family, the Twaddell family, the Badgley family, and David Thomas.

We’re yearning for Spirit-led ministry that bears fruit, whether or not it results in a Friends faith community. We seek to express God’s love in thought, word, and deed. We pray that this love-as-service extends the Kingdom of God.

Please visit EFM for more information about the people currently serving, and how you can help send them—or how you can offer your own gifts and presence internationally. It’s work that’s sometimes frustrating and always blessed.

Please pray about how you could participate—

  • to serve internationally in short-term or long-term ways,
  • to donate financially,
  • to pray for the workers and the people they serve,
  • to volunteer or lend other key support through your church.

For more information, please contact global@nwfriends.org or efm@friendsmission.com.

Karen Swenson has been serving in Hungary since January 1998 (and in the Teaching Abroad program since 2002).  Her focus is to assist missionary families in meeting the educational needs of their children.  Through her tutoring and teaching, Karen provides opportunities and assistance to students who are being homeschooled and students whose needs are not being met in other settings.  Because of her efforts, missionary families are able to remain on the field and continue their ministry.
