Tim and Heidi Olson have been members of WPCC since 2016 and plan to move to Romania as full-time missionaries in January 2020. They have two kids, Luke and Emily, who are also excited to be moving to Romania! In October 2017, they visited some missionary friends in Romania to love on and encourage their friends in their ministry. In reflection on that trip, Tim and Heidi were prompted through sermons, personal devotions and prayer that God was calling them into full time missions in Romania.Read More
Missions: Local and Global
As Christians, we're called to share the good news of Jesus with others, "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," (Matthew 28:19b). We're to "make disciples of all nations," and that's what we long to do.
We desire to reach our local community, and one of the ways we do this is through our Storehouse Ministries. Click here to learn more about Storehouse and how we want to serve Teller County.
"All nations" includes the United States, so we support many missionaries right here in the U.S. We have missionaries who work with students on campus, people who are planting churches, men and women working with the Navigators to train and support missionaries, and several involved in counseling and refreshing missionaries who have come back from the field or are on furlough. There is a great need for the Gospel right here in our country.
Foreign missions is a priority for us. We have missionaries to Kazakhstan, Namibia, Nepal, and Costa Rica. We support missionaries living in some countries, and organize annual short-term missions trips to assist their work. We want to take part in the spreading of the Gospel to all parts of the earth.
The missions team did an awesome job in Limón despite very challenging weather. Sometimes it would rain “buckets” and the rest of the time it was very hot and humid. But they persevered and the gospel went forward. Our team consisted of 24 Americans (8 from WPCC) and 20 Costa Ricans. In all, 800 people were served in the clinics, nearly 600 heard the gospel and more than 320 received Christ as their Lord and Savior. Also, three house churches were started and two smaller churches were strengthened.
Our prayers now are with the pastors and their teams who must do the follow up in the next 30-45 days. We also pray that we will not forget God’s faithfulness and the stories of miracles that came from this trip. It is a privilege to watch Him work and see Him change the lives of all who are touched by Him!
We also host and mentor young believers from Namibia coming state side for training opportunities. We track with some of our summer mission team alumni who are following the Lord in mission careers. Mentoring seems to be the operative word as we facilitate people “growing and going”, as they follow the Lord and serve in his kingdom.Read More

Our story starts with a rescue. I (Chad) grew up in a religious home but it wasn’t until a sophomore in college that I heard the full Gospel. At that point I understood my utter need for a Savior in the person of Jesus outside of my own efforts. Kristin grew up knowing Jesus from an earlier age and that strengthened rapidly mid-way through college and into our marriage. We were married in 1999 on a beautiful day in a field behind a cabin overlooking a ranch in Minnesota.Read More
Nepal Mission Story:
Nepal Mission is passionate about the people of Nepal experiencing the Father’s love through our good works. Nepal Mission was founded by Ruth Parajuli, a woman who grew up on a farm outside the small village of Lamosangu, 50 miles east of Kathmandu, Nepal. Ruth and her family heard the message of hope 30 years ago, and they embraced Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Having experienced the love of the Father, their passion is for others to experience that love and know the one who sacrificed Himself for us.Read More

We help train campaigners and go with them door-to-door to evangelize and to create new believers and help plant new churches in new areas. Then, the pastors that we have trained make disciples of the new believers. Our hope and prayer that the Lord uses our efforts to transform lives, to spread the gospel and to grow the kingdom of God.Read More
Darrell and his wife, Annette, minister among International Students as a part of The Navigators in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Annette (Scott) grew up attending WPCC with her family and worked as a youth intern while a student. Together, Darrell & Annette direct a summer training program in Skjolden, Norway, where college students from the U.S., Norway and many other countries come to explore difficult questions of faith, gain missions experience, and grow in their walk with Jesus (see: www.elvheim.no). Darrell also occasionally teaches as an adjunct professor of Philosophy and enjoys the chance to help students think about the ultimate questions of life. Their greatest joy (and most exciting challenge) are their three young children, Dylan (13), Jared (9), and Eva Alice (7).Read More
