Global Outreach International Neighborhoods

Every 30 seconds a new immigrant enters the United States.

In the last five years, Phoenix has become home to U.N.-sponsored refugees from more than 80 countries.

Today, over 40,000 Somalians reside in the Valley, and tens of thousands from Sudan, Liberia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and other African nations have become our neighbors.  This year, Arizona is welcoming several thousand more refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Burma and Bhutan.

Many have harrowing stories of surviving imprisonment, torture, near starvation, the death of many relatives and friends, and enormous personal loss.  Some have lived up to 18 years in a refugee camp.

They arrive in America with all their earthly belongings contained in two suitcases, prepared to begin a new life in “the land of unlimited opportunities”.

Most, however, quickly find out that the American dream will require them to start from the bottom – learning another language, returning to school to earn a recognized degree – all the while working in the lowest paid, manual labor jobs.

Their greatest felt need is for genuine friendship.  Their hearts are uniquely receptive to God’s love.

Global Outreach Ambassadors & Global Partners


L & M – SE Asia
Born again from a Buddhist background nearly 19 years ago, this couple has made almost 30 ministry trips into their homeland – which is not open to Christian witness. Each outreach is at great personal risk, due to the fierce persecution currently being experienced by the growing rural indigenous church.  The Word of God is constantly being confirmed with miracles – the latest of which is the supernatural healing of an 18 year old boy diagnosed with leukemia!

Matt & Emily Triggs – Philippines
Married in 2009, the Triggs are currently involved in the ministry of helps and evangelism in Mindanao, Philippines. They also have a weekly program on a Christian radio station, which broadcasts out of Makati (a district of Metro Manila).  Matt has traveled and ministered in 16 countries.  Emily is expecting their first child in late September or October.


Fishers of Men Ministries International – Haiti
Dr. Jay & Mrs. Linda Threadgill pastor Church On The Rock-Port Au Prince, which has grown from 6 to over 7000 in the last 24 years.  Fishers of Men Ministries has planted over 25 churches throughout the nation, as well as 14 academic schools, and 4 accredited Bible schools. This ministry also facilitates a hunger relief program, which last year fed nearly 3000 students throughout the city and in the rural areas of Haiti.

Global Outreach Transporation Ministry

CFTN’s 5 Vans & Bus Bring The Nations To Worship

“Before you came, I had no way to attend church,” explains Harriett Hemerling, a mother of four small children who comes from Rwanda.  Harriett now owns a van and brings her own family to church services.

On any given Sunday morning, 5 or 6 nationalities are represented among the 50+ passengers brought to church by CFTN’s transportation ministry. Most of the riders are New Americans, who do not yet have their own vehicle.

Deng Chor, a high school senior from Sudan, rode the van for several years, but now has a job and his own wheels.  He proudly brings a carload with him to service.

Two van drivers are urgently needed for Sunday mornings, and one van driver is needed to pick teens up for the Wednesday Youth Service.

Would you pray about being the answer to many people’s prayers as either a full-time or substitute driver?  Check this ministry out—ride-alongs are encouraged!!

Contact Transportation Director, Ralph Daniel, 602-292-2414 / , to learn more about this ministry.
