World Missions

We Are Called to Go and Make Disciples

Mission to the Unreached in Asia

The first Episcopal Missionary Bishop to Shanghai was sent from the Parish Church of St Helena in 1844. Rev. William Jones Boone served as Bishop of Shanghai until his death in 1864.

In 2017, St. Helena’s is sending long term missionaries to serve in Asia.  455 Unreached People Groups exist in this part of the world, and St. Helena’s is once again sending two of its own to spread the news of Jesus Christ.

Since 2010,  St. Helena’s has commissioned 20 people to take the Word to Asia. Recently, parishioners have ministered to the Bell people in Asia, partnering with the Church of Our Savior, Palm Bay, Florida, and Anglican Frontier Missions (AFM). The parish also has a Skype ministry Bible Study with friends in Asia.

St. Helena’s supports long-term cross-cultural workers through AFM; to give to "John and Sarah," click HERE and select "Long-Term Mission."

Mission to Unreached and Persecuted in Ethiopia

In 2015 and 2016, parishioners have been a part of a Diocesan mission to Gambella, Ethiopia, on the South Sudan border. Bishop Grant and Dr. Wendy LeMarquand are full-time missionaries (SAMS), planting churches and a seminary amongst  many tribes and people groups. St. Helena’s supports the mission through FADE (Friends of the Anglican Diocese of Egypt).

Other Missions

Two parishioners traveled to Turkey through AFM (summer 2016), and continue to travel to Uganda through Solar Light for Africa.
