SERVING ACROSS THE WORLD.

OUR MISSIONARIES

All these missionaries in which Hillside currently support have a very close connection with our church.  Most grew up at Hillside and consider Hillside their church home.  Please keep all our missionaries in your prayers.  Connect with them; let them know you are praying for them and following the work God has called them to do.

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Laurie Davis

Missionary

Laurie Davis grew up attending Hillside UMC and came to know the Lord while involved in the youth ministry of TNT. Laurie went to Kennesaw State University in 2012 and got plugged into Campus Outreach. Through the ministry of Campus Outreach, Laurie was able to disciple women in her sorority and see people’s lives changed by the Gospel. In choosing a career choice post-graduation, it became clear to Laurie that the Lord was leading her to work for Campus Outreach and use her gifting to bring the hope of the Gospel to lost college women on the campus of Georgia Tech. Laurie will be evangelizing on the campus, leading discipleship groups, bible study discussions, and weekly large group meetings, as well as equipping students to take the Gospel to the ends of the Earth!

Unnamed Missionaries

There are areas in this world that are not safe for missionaries. Many religions do not tolerate Christianity and will punish severely those that teach the Gospel. God has sent several of His servants connected with Hillside into these areas. Please be sure to pray for these missionaries in which we cannot name or identify the country in which they reside.
