We believe every Christian is to be Jesus' presence in this generation. All are encouraged to intentionally love, serve, and GO like Jesus.

"Go" is not a program, it's a lifestyle!


GO is focused on these 3 areas:

  • GO Personal- Share what God has done to others in your life.

  • GO Local- Find opportunities to make a difference in our community.

  • GO Global- Support missionaries by giving financially, joining their email list as a prayer partner or join a missions trip.

Email the Church Office for upcoming GO opportunities.





Brendan Doonan

South Korea

Hello Hessel family my name is Brendan Doonan and I am serving as a missionary in South Korea. I have been serving here in South Korea for a year and a half. I arrived for the first time at the Hessel church youth group around 7 years ago as an unbeliever. I was 18 years old and identified as agnostic at the time. Through some people involved with the Hessel youth group I came to fully believe and trust in Christ. Hessel will always be my church, the place where I came to know Christ, I will always be thankful for that. In my ministry here in South Korea we have had a shift in our focus from doing an English immersion bible teaching program to more of a focus on local church ministry. We have brought on a set of Korean interns and are beginning to give them bible training in order to help them grow in their faith and help them become gospel advancing leaders in their local church and community. I have also been the replacement speaker for my local church's youth group until they find a new youth pastor. This has been a huge blessing as I have been able to preach directly to the Korean youth and help them grow in their faith. 


For our new group of interns who will be helping with ministry and being discipled by our team. That they can grow in their faith and adjust to their knew internship. For our local church ministry, that we can train youth to not only know the gospel but be able to share it with their friends.
