At HHBC we aim to empower the local body to engage with and participate in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with people who have yet to be reached by encouraging prayer for those who serve faithfully in overseas posts, preparation to sacrifice time, money and comfort to be an encouragement to the long term workers, and participation in the work of showing and telling the Gospel in unreached places.
Benin - West Africa Mission
The goal of this mission is to train and equip local church planters throughout the country of Benin. We partner with Marc Idjigberou, a native of Benin who grew up in the home of International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries and now serves as a liaison for churches. He has specifically identified scripture engagement, training, and support for the local church planters as some of the greatest needs among the 63 different people groups in Benin. Our goal is to help these fledgling pastors and congregations gain the tools they need to bring the gospel and effectively disciple in a country where 20 percent of the population remain completely unreached.

Cooperative Program Giving
HHBC is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention and we are proud to support the Cooperative Program to give towards a common goal: reaching every person on the planet with the good news of Jesus Christ. The Cooperative Program Giving funds are used to reach the nations and support our Southern Baptist missionaries around the world.
HHBC contributions to the Cooperative Program Giving are made throughout the year during Sunday services. Details of the combined Southern Baptist Convention giving may be found in the Fast Facts 2019 overview.
Eastern Africa Mission
In 2008 the Placke family of six moved to East Africa. Wanting to serve neglected and impoverished peoples and go where no one else would go, they settled in a faraway village in southeastern Tanzania. With Christ as their compassion source, they committed to walking side by side with the Ngindo tribe.
Help One Now - Haiti
As the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with 77% of its 10 million people living below the poverty line, Haiti is able to do very little to care for its vulnerable population. HHBC has chosen to serve our neighbors in Haiti by supporting the excellent work of the Help One Now organization in orphanages there. These orphanages each include a vibrant church and school, and have become a beacon of hope for their communities.
One of the orphanages, Ferrier Village, is a refuge specifically for orphaned children who are at high risk of trafficking, or have been rescued from traffickers. It’s a safe, loving place where these precious children are cared for by house moms, and are being restored to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Our August church wide garage sale provides a large part of the funds we send. Join us!
This ministry works with local pastors and leaders in the Himalayas to spread the gospel in Darjeeling India, Nepal and Bhutan. The few churches in the countryside of Bhutan are underground and open evangelism is illegal; therefore very little mission work is being done in this area.
Our primary focus is in the villages of the Himalayas where people mostly live off the land without any transportation or electricity. They have no church buildings and the education for the children is not good. The mission is to reach those that haven't been reached with the gospel and go where no missionaries have gone.
We work to fully support local pastors, church planting in remote villages and sponsor bible schools where young leaders can be trained prior to being sent out to the mission field.

HHBC missionaries, Wade and Denise Strickland, are sharing the gospel and developing disciples with ethnically Chinese Indonesians in a Classical Christian school where they have administrative responsibilities. They are resource people for their teammates who have a small homeschool style boarding school with Sudanese children. The Strickland’s also encourage some Christian Sundanese university students who desire to reach their largely Muslim people group.

Middle East Mission
The goal of this mission is to encourage and support long term missionaries in the region with regular contact, prayer support, and engagement by traveling to the area to participate in ministry opportunities. The gospel workers in the region employ many different methods and channels to make the name of Jesus known to an almost exclusively Muslim population and culture. They also work to disciple and train those who have already come to know Christ, and to build up the Church as it grows. Our goal is to encourage these workers through our Missions Advocacy Team, which meets regularly to pray, contacts them via skype and sends visitors to encourage them.

Village of Hope Uganda
Compelled by a God-centered heart for orphans, Village of Hope (VOH) rescues the lives of former child soldiers, sex slaves and their younger siblings orphaned by war. VOH provides a safe haven for healing and hope for a future. This is accomplished by our feeding ministry in Gulu’s IDP camps providing food, education & counseling. Residential Villages of Hope provide physical needs, safety, medical services, a stable and loving home, life skills training, education in our schools, counseling, vocational training, Biblical discipleship and systemic solutions to epidemic poverty and hopelessness among Africa’s most vulnerable children. Our approach is designed to prepare and inspire VOH young men and women to become productive citizens, ethical leaders, and beacons for Christ within their communities and country.
