Inspire International (Website)
There are over 500,000 un-reached villages in India . Inspire International’s goal is to reach 10% of these un-reached villages in next 5 years. That is approximately a population of 50 million people. SCPC will help Inspire International reach 10,000 villages each year with the Word of God. To reach the nation of India, Inspire International will accomplish this through careful planning and partnership with major national organizations, mission agencies, as well as denominations and local churches such as Swift Creek Presbyterian Church.

Campus Crusade helps fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others; and helps the Body of Christ do evangelism and discipleship.
World Horizons USA (Website)
WH USA works to envision, train, support and plant churches by:

Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship (Website)
We are excited to work together to see every ethnic group have its own church, reflecting its own cultural characteristics. We want every Presbyterian church to have a mission vision, in particular a vision to reach out to peoples who have no church. And we want newly planted churches to share that same vision for others.
Mission of Mercy (Website)
Mission of Mercy exists to equip children in developing nations to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for spiritual, physical, social, mental and emotional development. Outreaches include, but are not limited to, elementary, secondary and vocational education, orphanages, medical projects, health care, feeding programs, homes for babies with AIDS and other Christian ministries of compassion.
One of the projects SCPC took part in for the Bod Petur Foundation was the continuing modernization of a medical center in Sard, Romania. The old building, with 3 family doctors, is in bad shape. Next to the building the construction of the new pharmacy building was started that will serve over 1000 persons, mostly poor Romanian people and Gipsys.

Today about 200 million people do not have the Bible in their own language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best. To make this vision a reality, Wycliffe also focuses on literacy development, community development and church partnerships.

After their reappointment in June 2004, Jodi began working part-time at the Ekwendeni Hospital’s nursing school as a clinical instructor.
