International Conference on Missions 2022
by Ryan Shoemaker on November 18th, 2022
Just back from the International Conference on Missions held in Columbus, Ohio, this year.  I find it totally awe inspiring as I walk among hundreds of missions gathered.  Everything from saving girls from human trafficking, feeding the hungry, teaching others how to make a living, taking care of orphans, spreading the gospel in remote places, etc.  It’s God’s work.  Its what we as Christians shou...  Read More
Help Orphans In Ukraine
by Ryan Shoemaker on October 21st, 2022
 Can you help?   Master Provisions (a SHCC sponsored mission) has made a request.  They have asked individuals to help orphans in Ukraine.  Once after looking around at my nice home and surroundings and wondering if I did enough to help others less fortunate, my Uncle Ron told me:“Don’t beat yourself up about what you have, just give when God gives you the opportunity.”  I try to live by that.  I ...  Read More
Missions--God In Motion
by Ryan Shoemaker on October 14th, 2022
Missions – As far as faith goes, it’s where the rubber meets the road, where faith takes flight, where you can get your hands dirty in service to others.  My husband and I are getting ready to go to the International Conference on Missions (  This year, it is in Columbus, OH, from Nov 3rd – Nov 5th.  There we will be able to visit with missionaries supported by Southern Heights Christ...  Read More
Here's Your Sign
by Ryan Shoemaker on July 22nd, 2022
Type your new text here. I went to volunteer at Crosslines a couple years ago but was not able to continue due to responsibilities that my husband, Rick, and I had to care for our mother’s.  The circumstances have changed and I began to think about volunteering again.  As mission’s liaison, I see all the newsletters for all the mission supported by Southern Heights.  I opened the latest one from C...  Read More

Mission Update June 2022
by Ryan Shoemaker on June 10th, 2022
It’s been a while since my “Missions Walk,” articles about missions supported by Southern Heights.  However, mission work has continued and as in the case of “My Home,” to say it has intensified, is an understatement.  “My Home” is an orphan care program that partners with Master Provisions, a SHCC supported mission. In this article, I take all my information from a recent email update forwarded b...  Read More

Missions Walk - Show Me Christian Youth Home
by Tonya Soum on August 28th, 2021
Walking through life can be all up-hill with no summit in site if you do not have a supportive family.  Families in crisis experience difficulties, problems that cannot be overcome.  This can leave children without a stable home or for some, a home of any kind.  The staff at Show Me is compelled by Christ to rescue and restore young lives.  This Christ centered mission places children with a famil...  Read More
Missions Walk July 2021
by SHCC Lebanon on June 29th, 2021
Many walk-through life without any missteps, but there are also those whose lives do not fall neatly into place.  Their path is not so smooth or easy.  An unplanned pregnancy can seem for that individual that they have stepped off a cliff.  And many may feel there will be no one around to help with the wounds of being deserted/not wanted, of going through a pregnancy alone, not to mention raising ...  Read More

Missions Walk April 2021
by SHCC Lebanon on March 31st, 2021
I love a walk/hike in the woods. It's freeing!  Free of traffic, noise, and free of distractions only the solitude of nature.  Gasconade Christian Service camp is nestled in the woods, with all this and an added plus of sharing this get-away experience with friends (old and new).  “Church camp” as some call it, is friends, campfires, swimming, games, growing in your faith and so much more.  For so...  Read More

Scott Springer Family Ministry We come in from a cold walk in the snow and my thoughts turn to warmer days like my first mission trip to Juarez, Mexico.  That was with Scott Springer in 2002.  Scott lead 2 mission trips with SHCC members going to Juarez, Mexico, just across the border from El Paso, TX.  The visual difference across the border from El Paso to Juarez was stark.  Scott was working to...  Read More
