Missions

The proclamation of the gospel is clearly at the heart of the Scriptures.  The final words that Christ gave His disciples before ascending to the Father were, "you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."  It is clear - our job is to be His witnesses in our local community as well as abroad!


Below is a brief bio on the missionaries that the Black Diamond Gospel Chapel supports:

Alex & Jo-ann macris: greece

Alex & Jo-Ann Macris were married in 1996.  They have been blessed with four beautiful children; Elizabeth, Alison, Johnathan, and David.

Alex Macris is the Director for Broad Reach Maritime. BRM is the maritime branch of Hellenic Ministries. Its goal is to reach the many unevangelized islands of Greece and beyond. Discipleship is the on-going focus of Broad Reach. Alex is also the skipper of the 52ft Schooner, "Morning Star."  With a tool such as M/Star transportation of ministry teams, evangelistic outreach, weekend excursions and discipleship training can all take place.
Alex has also directed and assisted HM's camp ministry, for the past 8 years at their seafront facility Porto Astro.
As HM is a multifaceted organization, leadership in key areas is needed. Opportunities to lead and be part of the leadership team are an integral part of the Alex & Jo-Ann Macris family.

Vova & Taniana Burnashev: Yakutia

Vladimir has the privilege of serving God among his own people.

I was born in Yakutia in the coldest inhabited region on earth where the temperature drops to -70°C/ -95 F. As a child I remember my family believing in many gods and spirits, which is typical of the Yakut people”.  Sakha or Yakut people - the largest indigenous group in Siberia.

To this day, my people do not have a fully translated Bible in the Yakut language.

My wife and I work in Yakutia translating the Bible, creating audio and video materials, visiting remote villages with no believers, helping them to know God.
