Missionary Stories: From the Field

We are blessed with 47 missionary families who are serving all over the world! From Christian education to church planting, from missional business to refugee ministry, they’re doing it all to the glory of God.


As you can see on the map below, our missionaries are located in dozens of countries around the world and are making a gospel impact in over 50 countries every day.  In addition to prayer support and encouragement, The Moody Church provides nearly $50,000 per month in ongoing financial support. Your generosity enables this!

We sent Claire VanderHart and Kaitlyn Wisniewski in August 2023 to visit our missionaries in Costa Rica and see first-hand how the Spirit is working. Jeff and Michelle McQueary have been serving in the San Jose area for 20 years and currently operate Casa Esperanza, a ministry to women in the red-light district. Claire and Kaitlyn were able to shadow the McQuearys, encourage them in their work, and meet the women they serve each day. Enjoy this video from their trip!
