WBC supports several missionaries across the world. There are a variety of ways to become involved including prayer, financial support, or even visiting them. It's easier than ever to keep in touch and encourage missionaries by sending a note via email. 


If you are interested in helping support any of our missionaries, you can contact them individually by email. 


You can also contact our Missions Committee via email for more information on how you can be a part of our global outreach.

Dr. Álvaro & Soledad Ávila - Mexican Medical Ministries Serving in Cabo San Lucas


Álvaro and Soledad have been serving the Lord as missionaries in Cabo San Lucas since 1996, ministering with Mexican Medical Ministries through medicine, health education, and evangelism. They are dedicated to providing medical and optical care, both in the clinic and in evangelistic health fairs. The Ávilas also provide care at senior centers, children's feeding programs, the "Path of Life" rehab center, and in local schools.

"But I will heal this city and its people and restore them to health. I will show them abundant peace and security." -Jeremiah 33:6

Columbia Pregnancy Center

Serving in St. Helens and surrounding Columbia County



Columbia Pregnancy Center in St. Helens provides encouragement, counseling, free pregnancy tests and pregnancy education for those who are faced with an unplanned pregnancy. They also provide baby clothing and other necessities upon request.  

The Keim family has been a part of our WBC family for many years. God recently led Julie Keim to the position of CPC Director, and she is excited to see how He leads in this ministry in our community.

Evan & Elizabeth Larson

Serving in Papua New Guinea



Evan Larson has been involved in ministry in Papua New Guinea since 2004. After Evan & Liz were married in 2007, they joined Wycliffe Bible Translators providing technical support for the translation process in the form of mechanical maintenance, welding and instruction, department management and high school library administration. 


Business As Mission (BAM) is one way God has given a sacred calling to individuals to introduce His redemptive values to the community in which they live. For some like the Larsons, running a business is the most effective way to use their talents for God's glory. 


Evan has extensive structural welding experience and certifications to be a welding inspector who is able to train and certify Papua New Guinean welders to fill the locally available jobs. Helping Papua New Guineans develop skills to fulfill their everyday needs will allow them to be more eager to learn how to satisfy their spiritual needs. Evan and Elizabeth "want to see communities restored to God and each other as an expression of God's redemptive work in the world."

Brian & Kathy (secured)

Serving CRU (Campus Crusade For Christ, International)

The Jesus Film Project





Brian grew up as part of our WBC family. After graduating from college and working for Intel, God directed him to Campus Crusade in Florida for a short-term mission. God had bigger plans for Brian though, including meeting his wife Kathy there. His short-term mission became THEIR full-time mission! Brian and Kathy are heavily involved with The Jesus Film Project, travelling all around the world themselves and training others to do the same. They welcomed son Cody in the spring of 2012 and love their new role as parents.

Lynette Young

Serving Youth in Montevideo, Uruguay



Lynette is serving the youth in Montevideo, Uruguay, the least-churched country in the Americas, with only 3% of the population being Christians. It is a country of great influence in Latin America, and in the upper middle class neighborhood called the "Rambla" (the neighborhoods along the boardwalk), only one tenth of one percent of about 380,000 people are believers.

In this mostly secular and atheistic society, they have planted Rey de Paz (King of Peace), which has been an effective and growing church in this unreached people group. Lynette specifically works with youth (12 to 30 year olds) in a society that does not typically allow young people to get involved in leadership. She has helped teenagers grow in confidence and involvement in the church and reach out to their non-believing friends.
