Outreach + Missions

Outreach Ministry

Our Outreach ministries exist to Know God and Make Him Known by activating the local church body into our calling to meet the Great 8 needs in our community.


In alignment with the vision of Arbor Road Church, “to know God and make Him known,” the ARC Global Impact Ministry exists to “Multiply Transformational Churches through Strategic Collaboration.”

Our Missionary Partnerships

We enjoy hearing about the missions work that happens every day through our Missionary Partners across the globe. Below are 8 of the missionaries we partner with. Take some time to read about where God has placed them and pray for their specific needs.

Interested in partnering with us for a long-term or short-term mission trip?

Meet the Outreach Team



Ashraf is from a Muslim majority country in the Middle East.  Ashraf came to know Christ as a young man.  He is now part of the Converge movement to reach Muslims throughout the Middle East.  Ashraf also coaches USA churches in local outreach to Muslims.



Kris is reaching Muslims with the Gospel in an undisclosed location.  She has had a life-long history with Arbor Road Church, where she was dedicated to Christ a few weeks after birth.  Then at just 7 months old she left California with her international family starting fellowships in South America.   Kris attended LCS during 2 home assignments.  Today she is part of a team seeking to reach Muslims through a wide variety of humanitarian outreach efforts.   She has built friendships with dozens of families from many North African countries and shares the gospel privately.  The goal is a church of Muslim background believers that will reproduce planting daughter churches

Rachel Closs

Papua New Guniea

Lord willing I will be heading to Papua New Guinea this year, to join a team and move into a tribe where we will learn their language and culture, teach them God’s Word and disciple them to be followers of Christ who continue to grow and mature as they reach out to those around them and beyond. This will not happen overnight and it will not happen on my own. With the help of God’s Spirit in us and the support from His Body – the Church – He will make His name known.

Stephanie Sudman

Democratic Republic of Congo

Stephanie Sudman is working with Africa Inland Mission in Bunia, Democratic Republic of Congo. She and her team are working with churches to encourage and train children and youth ministry leaders within the church.  Sunday Schools, Bible Study groups and Kid’s and Youth activities are all part of the vision to build a mature, Christ-Centered Church. She is currently working with three small churches to start Sunday school programs and develop curriculum for both teacher training and kids Sunday school.

Brian + Christine Virtue


Brian is leading the Executive Team at IGSL (Philippines) in Strategic matters (2025 post-pandemic strategic planning, 2021-2022 Strategic planning, Digital transformation, online education initiative, and program innovation. These are all teams I’ve been leading over the past year. Christine has led the Partners in Ministry Team through their navigation through many of the same issues.

Kellee Popp

National School Project, California

For 18 years, we’ve equipped Christian students as “teen evangelists” to reach their peers and classmates for Christ. To date, we’ve seen over 9,000 students from nearly 400 schools give their lives to Christ through on-campus, student-led outreach events. The best part? These students now have the confidence to be evangelists for years to come. Kellee’s main job throughout the year continued to be building relationships with our donors and inviting them to give financially to NSP. And as a result I was able to invite donors to make EOY gifts, and pledges for 2021.
