bringing The Gospel...

Ely Gospel Church was planted as an "evangelistic and missionary church" in 1952.  From our "end of the road" we continue to send and support missionaries both near and to the ends of the earth, especially those with a primary purpose of bringing the Gospel.  It varies somewhat year to year depending on special projects; that said, 20-30% of our annual gross budget is directed to missions beyond the local church.  Our current eighteen missionaries are as follows:
