Recent Mission Trips
Romania, November 2017
Over the course of a week, in addition to teaching in a few classes at Emanuel University, arrangements were made by the School of Management to host two leadership seminars for local business leaders. A breakfast at the Doubletree Hotel in Oradea kicked off the first seminar in one of their conference rooms on Tuesday morning of that week. The morning seminar allowed us to introduce biblical leadership principles to about ten business men and women from the Oradea business community. A group of a dozen or more attended an all-day seminar on Friday of that week on the Emanuel University campus. The hope is that the School of Management can continue to build bridges into the local business community so that the gospel can cross over and impact the lives of the leaders and through them their families, businesses and the entire surrounding community!
Cuba, January 2018
Cathy and I joined a team of eighteen on a trip to Havana, Cuba to teach a pastors' conference for church planters, a women's conference, and then participate in ministry through the local churches on Sunday morning. Over the past few years, hundreds of churches and thousands of new believers have experienced the saving grace of Christ. We were overwhelmed by the strength of their commitment, the power of their testimony and the intensity of their heart for being equipped for life and ministry!

The Diversity of the Body: Our Time in South Africa - October 2016
For ten days in October 2016, David and Cathy Horner traveled to South Africa carrying out the vision of EFL to equip Christian leaders. We especially enjoyed working alongside George Tissiere and Larry Warren with a work team from Providence. They did an amazing job of painting, tiling, building a celling and in many other ways helping a church prepare its new building as a place of worship and child-care.
Cathy taught a conference for women's leaders working in the Khayelitsha township. Along with a couple of other pastors and leaders from the United States, David got to teach as part of a church-planting pastors' conference. The pastors are Ethiopian and have planted over 75 churches among Ethiopian refugees all over South Africa. A hard-working team of leaders from South Korea give oversight to that great work and provide support for their labors.
