Westwood’s Mission Partners

Westwood Church seeks to make disciples of all nations through both local and overseas mission partners. We will do this in several ways:

  • We equip and mobilize our church body to engage in evangelism by offering training classes throughout the year.
  • We oversee and provide opportunities for church attenders to serve locally and overseas with our mission partners.
  • We encourage, connect and support our current mission partners and bring their needs before the church body periodically.

Bruce & Jan Johnson, Ethnos 360, Bolivia

Tribal groups in Bolivia are often scattered in many isolated villages that are often wary and suspicious of outsiders. But videos are non-threatening. People let their guard down and listen. For that reason, we believe that well-done videos in the heart language of the people are a great tool.

Our goal is to prepare the Genesis Project video series for six Bolivian languages to help overcome some of the challenges among isolated villages. The Genesis Project videos teach foundational truths about God, creation, sin and the promised Savior. They provide an excellent accompaniment to the Jesus Film project that was completed in 2017.

Ettien & Kim Koffi, Anyi Literacy Program, Ivory Coast

Dr. Ettien Koffi, a member of Westwood Church in St. Cloud, Minnesota and a professor at St. Cloud State University, began this ministry in 1991 when he started to translate the New Testament Bible into Anyi (Morofou Dialect), his native language. This language had remained an oral language until Dr. Koffi began to do the translation work.

In about 1997,  a literacy program was established so that, as the Bible was completed, the Anyi people could begin to read the Word of God. The draft of the New Testament was completed in the spring of 2011 and printed in 2017. There are currently more than 55 adult literacy classrooms in Eastern Ivory Coast.
