“Yes, we are a Missions Church.”
Following Jesus’ commandment from Matthew 28:19, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” the Conejo Valley Church of Christ is reaching out to both local and foreign mission fields.
We are currently involved and supporting mission works in Panama (Raul and Betty Alvarado); in Baja California (Medical outreach); in Cambodia (the BEST learning center and Julie Broyles); in Mexico (the ministry of the City of Children in Ensenada); in Ghana (a medical mission clinic); in Greece (Daniel and Karly Napier); in Kenya (the Made in the Streets ministry to street kids in Nairobi); and in the UK (Megan Randolph with TeachBeyond). Our youth group spends a week each summer in Mexico, where they build a house for a local family with the Amor ministry.
The missionaries and mission efforts we are blessed to support in 2023:
Raul and Betty Alvarado work with the Metro Church in Panama City, Panama. Members from Conejo Valley Church of Christ visited and participated with the Alvarados on two occasions prior to the pandemic.

The Conejo Church of Christ has been blessed by a long history of partnership and ministry with the City of Children. In 2023, both City of Children and Conejo Valley Church of Christ celebrated their 50th anniversaries. Many of Conejo’s members have, through the years, made weekend trips to “City of Children” to spend a time playing games with the kids and serving families in the surrounding neighborhood. Mark and Michele D. have been the ministry champions for this mission outreach for this congregation.

In 2023, our congregation became ministry partners and supporters of the medical clinic in Ghana, West Africa. Mark D. and Michael W. delivered medical supplies in the spring and spent several days getting to know more about the people, the needs, and the plans for the work in Ghana. We are excited about future opportunities to work with the team at the medical clinic in Ghana.
Daniel and Karly Napier work in Thessaloniki, Greece. They recently visited with the Conejo Valley congregation to share about their current work in Greece and their plans for the future.
