Reaching the World for Christ
May you be encouraged to step out in service as the hands and feet of Christ, becoming engaged in our community and beyond so that others may come to know the love of Jesus.
Welcome to The Table Rock Missions Outreach Page
where you can learn about the outreach ministries that we support prayerfully, financially and/or practically. Our belief is that each and every follower of Christ is called to be “mission minded” in sharing the love of Jesus to those outside of the church. This may mean a neighbor across the street or an orphan on the other side of the world. As you explore the ministry opportunities below, may you be encouraged and challenged to step out in service as the hands and feet of Christ, becoming engaged in our community and beyond, so that others may come to know the love of Jesus and bring glory to our Lord.
OUTREACH – Local & International
Helping Hands International
Helping Hands International is a nondenominational Christian organization based in our hometown of Medford and is dedicated to sending teams throughout the world to bring help and hope to hurting people. Their primary goal is to share the love of Jesus through practical help both locally and around the world. In addition to serving in local community work projects, Helping Hands builds houses and supports a small orphanage in Mexico, has mission outreaches in San Francisco, Kenya, Malawi, Alaska, Nepal and reaches out to provide disaster relief in the US such as coming along side victims of the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA, last year. This is a new partnership with TRF, established in the spring of 2019 and we anticipate many opportunities both locally and internationally for the Table Rock family to get involved. In January 2020, TRF will begin financially supporting this dynamic ministry on a monthly basis.
Engineering Ministries International
Engineering Ministries International is an international development organization made up of architects, engineers, surveyors and construction managers who use their skills to serve the least reached worldwide. Their multidisciplinary design teams collaborate with client ministries to design culturally-appropriate facilities that are sustainable, affordable and transformational. They design hospitals, schools, water systems and other facilities that catalyze their partner ministries to fulfill their calling and transform their communities.
Together they are designing a world of hope. Brad and Alisha Crawford, our missionaries, were sent out from Table Rock in 2008. Our church family has continued to support the Crawfords on a monthly basis through the ensuing years. Brad and Alisha and, when possible, their three sons return to Table Rock each year to share their stories of how God continues to use them in the mission field and to express their thanks for continued prayer and financial support.
Youth 71Five VoTecH
Youth 71Five VoTech is a new ministry of Youth71Five (formerly YFC). VoTech exists to impart the basic life and vocational skills, vision and hope that young men and women need to transition into a healthy adult life. The love of Jesus and the Gospel are woven into all aspects of training and support. The ministry also offers transitional housing on a limited basis for participants in the VoTech program. Larry Licato, the ministry director, has been a part of the Table Rock family for many years and we support Larry monthly in his work with young adults in our community.
Get involved: pray for the ministry, be a vocational trainer/mentor, provide a meal, volunteer for special projects at the new VoTech facility, hire a VoTech graduate.

Rural Uganda Project
A letter from Rural Uganda:
Dear Team, Greetings from Uganda.
Yesterday it was a great day when a small team of us drove to Deborah and Elijah’s home to hand over the house. Because of the pandemic we couldn’t have a big gathering. We had some local pastors and other few people. My brother is part of the Rural Uganda project and he was also available and gave the gift of the Bible to the couple. My wife gave a speech on behalf of Rural Uganda. I was not feeling well with my body. I have some nerve problems so, as we reached home I developed a bad headache. Good thing Susan was there and I am feeling fair now.
Thanks for the support with this great work. The testimonies were so powerful. I know this is a platform for many generations to come. Everybody said this is God’s working. Some said God’s love is amazing and real. I can’t explain the joy that I saw here.
This ministry is humbling in many ways. let the supporters know that we are now able to start the next house.
God bless you all for the great work. We are sharing God’s love in practical ways. One life at a time.
Rural Uganda Project was birthed right here at Table Rock and offers financial and prayer support for the construction of brick homes for those in need in rural Uganda. Usually the recipient is a senior pastor who has spent years serving God, planting churches and bringing the gospel to many. TRF partners with Pastor Dan Kabugo in Uganda to bring the gift of a decent home to those who have faithfully served the Lord. Most importantly, there is a profound ripple effect that occurs amongst the local Ugandan villagers who hear of the gospel and witness God being glorified in it all. More than just a brick and mortar endeavor, lives are changed and the love of Jesus is experienced.
Open Arms International
Open Arms International has built a village in Eldoret, Kenya and offers holistic care for orphans and vulnerable children by providing a family environment, food, clothing, medical care, education social support and training in the Christian faith. The ministry also provides education, medical care, vocational training and Christian discipleship to indigenous people in the surrounding villages. Thanks to our former youth pastor, Josh Davis, the connection was made with this amazing ministry which is based in the Portland area. We have met several times with Matt Tallman, OAI’s Strategic Partnerships Director and TRF has had the pleasure to begin supporting Open Arms in the spring of 2019.
Get involved: pray for the work of the ministry and the kids and community that are served, consider joining a short term mission team, send a Bee Well Bag, sponsor a child with monthly support.
Women’s TRF Sewing Group
Women’s TRF Sewing Group, which was formed at the beginning of 2019, has been creating beautiful aprons which are sent to women at Reid Saunders ministry bases in South America. So far, 150 aprons, surrounded by love and prayers have been sent to Peru! One of our TRF seamstresses has also been creating aprons for kids attending the Christian day care and elementary school in Uganda which was established and is overseen by Pastor Dan Kabugo of the Rural Uganda Project. Additional projects are on the horizon!
