Four years ago, God told Josh and Beth Glymph to simultaneously do the two hardest things they’d ever done: “Foster care and church planting,” says Beth.

And yet, everything began to make sense after the Glymphs adopted three children, two out of foster care, while starting Refuge Church in the Jacksonville community of Ortega.

“People here who were fostering and adopting said, ‘Hey, there’s a family that’s doing what we’re doing,’” Josh says. “That’s how the Lord began to build this church.” Now, the Glymphs share the gospel with families from all kinds of backgrounds.

The Cooperative Program takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering helps missionaries and church plants be intentional in a Gospel reach to their communities.

Pray for new witnessing relationships to form out of Refuge’s foster and adoptive care ministry.
