Sending leaders around the world
Jesus calls each of us, “Follow me!” Chapel Hill helps support believers around the world each with a unique mission. To love the abused or abandoned, to listen, to teach, to offer grace, hope and purpose. As a global church family, we pray for each other and spur one another on.

ABHISHEK AND ANGIE GIER, call Delhi, India home. It’s a city with rampant abuse against women. But the Critical Care Center has become a model for restoring young girls out of sex slavery. They are creative catalysts, bringing work, wholeness and dignity to the most vulnerable.

MARY JEAN KOPP and her late husband Peter founded New Life Homes in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland in southern Africa) determined to care for children orphaned or abandoned due to HIV/AIDS. The 195-acre farm is home for many young people—a place to belong, to learn and to thrive.
