Here at Snowy Range Evangelical Free Church, we have a long history of supporting missions, both domestic and foreign. We take literally the Great Commission–“Go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:19). Our mission statement (“Making disciples who make a difference for Jesus in Laramie, in Wyoming, and around the world.”) is reflected in the balance of who we support and where they are located.
We invite you to check out the missionaries we support. The list starts with local missionaries and moves out from there. The list is almost complete, but there are some names we do not list for reasons of the security and safety of where they are, and who they minister to.
We would also like to add that we are able to support these missionaries because of the faithfulness of our members. We are so grateful for your generosity, and are excited to say your giving makes a difference in the lives of so many people, as evidenced below.
