At West Hills, Global Mission is an extension of the work that Jesus gave us as a local community of believers to do. We are a people who are about seeing the gospel go forth to those who are lost and showing the mercy of God to people everywhere, be they down the street, in our city or across the globe. The people we have sent out are not just hired hands, they are important parts of our church community who happen to live in other places to carry out the work God has given our church to do.
Interested in finding out more about how to get involved in Global Mission at West Hills? Curious about what God might have you do? Contact Pastor Brad for more information.

Bob and Deb Boogaard
Bob & Deb Boogaard, became part of the West Hills Missions Program in 1980, the year they departed to their first assignment in Colombia, South America. The West Hills Church family faithfully and generously supported and encouraged them for 35 years and they are grateful that the Lord (as He is building His church) allowed them to represent West Hills in the work of Bible translation. For decades as a missionary pilot, they were part of the transportation link bringing the Word of God to people in isolated and difficult to reach locations. They came home from their last overseas assignment in 2013, and retired from full time missions work with Wycliffe Bible Translators at the end of 2018. Bob continues to serve as a volunteer part-time in the Wycliffe HR Department working with the family units he started with before retirement. When these families return from their first term overseas, he hands them off to another administrator, and he expects to finish completely in about three years. Thank you for your continued prayer support.
