The CCCU has a great team of committed missionaries, serving in various places around the world. We'd love for you to meet them so you can pray better for them!

Mike Donna Brown 2019 PreferredFrom the beginning of our service to the Lord as missionaries, we discovered it to be full of many opportunities to share God's love! We are so thankful for the privilege of sharing Christ's love in a needy part of our world called Bolivia. 

At Berea Bible Seminary, Mike trains future leaders for the church, teaching young people who have a God-given desire to serve others in the name of Christ. Periodic ministry trips to remote regions of the country have provided incredible opportunities to share the Gospel, at times in places where any Christian witness at all is still very new. We continue to look forward to what God has in store for us next in the land of our calling—Bolivia, South America. As a nurse, Donna has used her knowledge and skills to help those with physical needs, taking part in medical campaigns around Bolivia. Now officially retired, Donna continues to support Mike in ministry.

My calling to serve the Lord in Hungary began when I was very young.

Christina McBride 2023Christina McBride serves as a missionary to the Texas-Mexico Border.

Christina gave her heart to Jesus when she was five years old. When she was 14, she surrendered her life to God and told Him that she would do anything and go anywhere He wanted. At that time, she did not know that He was calling her to missions. It wasn’t until she was a freshman in college that God spoke to her about being a missionary. She accepted His call and got her first taste of missions as an intern in Bolivia during her junior year in college.

In 2002, Christina was appointed as a missionary with World Gospel Mission. In February 2005, she went to Stockton, California, to work with inner-city children and youth. God then began to show she that He had a new ministry for her, and He gave her a peace about going to McAllen, Texas, to serve with the Texas-Mexico Border Ministries team at Taylor Community Center.
