MISSIONS

VISION

 

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.

MISSIONARY SPOTLIGHT

2023

 

Peter Qu

China

Hello Hessel family!

 

My name is Peter Qu and I have been ministering in China starting from 2013. My wife Jessie and our two daughters, Lydia and Deborah, had moved to Beijing with me in 2014. In Beijing, I served as a pastor at Beijing International Christian Fellowship (BICF). Because of COVID-19, we had to move back to the US but we have continued our missionary work remotely since then.

 

I first became associated with Hessel Church when they were graciously supporting the Rohnert Park Chinese Christian Church services. I very much appreciate the years of strong support and friendship from the Hessel pastors as well as the Hessel community. Today, we are extremely blessed that despite the challenging COVID-19 period, our mission work in China has continued in Beijing and has also expanded to other parts of Asia and Canada. Both our daughters have grown up, with Lydia now working with children with autism and Deborah pursuing higher education.

 

We are very excited about our current missionary work. My work has continued online with disciple training, bible/theological study, and marriage counseling, now with a stronger focus on training faith-driven Christian leaders living across six different cities. I meet with each of them weekly, providing support and guidance for their work to lead people in their local communities to Christ.

 

Another very exciting thing is that some of our cities have started in-person fellowship. From these fellowships, many new people have come to know the Lord, have grown in their faith and been baptized, and are repairing their marriages and family relationships. We are very blessed to witness these fellowships grow and see God working in people’s lives.

 

Please pray that these local fellowships continue to prosper. I am also counseling people dealing with sickness and cancer, so please keep them in your hearts and pray for their health and their families. Please pray for our safety and finances, for our housing here and for future travels to visit these fellowships in person.

 

Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

God Bless!

Peter & Jessie Qu
