NVLC World Missions

The Napa Valley Life Church Missions Team guides the church in supporting missionaries who spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people throughout the world. The Missions Team encourages prayer and financial support for our missionaries and provides faithful stewardship of international Missions.


Featured Missionary

Jerry and Kristin Donovan have been missionaries in East Asia since July 2002. They are affiliated with BBFI (Baptist Bible Fellowship International).

Because they are serving in a country that actively persecutes and imprisons Christians, they must be extremely cautious about what they say, write, and do in public.

Blessed! Oh so blessed! By you! For your faithfulness during this crazy season so marked by Covid and all its fallout. Thank you for your faithfulness in love, yarps and in giving. We thank Dad for you!

Blessed by our Father! His mercies are new every morning! We are the recipients of more blessings than we can count over this past year of 2020 - even in the midst of trials. Only our Father can do that!

Blessed by our national partners in East Asia! Would you believe that there have been more won to Him this past year than since the coffeehouse and training has begun!? Peter, one of our trainees who had been struggling with love of the world, has grown, stepped up and is leading meetings and people are coming to faith among his people! Joe and Leanna send us videos of their sons singing praise and quoting Book verses. Phil and Debbie are introducing folks from their family and village to the One Who saves! Lydia continues to manage the coffeehouse and has reunited with her husband in obedience to Father. And in December twelve “went swimming!” The work continues! We are blessed!

Napa Valley Baptist Church began supporting the Dovonans in August 2007.

For I passed on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures...
