Our Local & Global Mission Partners

We partner with a small number of high-impact organizations to meet practical, financial, and spiritual needs in Aurora and surrounding communities, in the greater Midwest, and around the world. 

Hesed House, Aurora, IL

Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again.

Hesed House is a national model for ending homelessness - one person, one family at a time. It is the culmination of nearly three decades of strategic evolution from a formerly acceptable model of "eats and sheets" to a Comprehensive Homeless Resource Center - a campus of centralized highly skilled professionals collaborating to provide the tools necessary to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness.

How Can We Partner To Answer A Calling?

You may believe in coincidences, flukes, or random occurences, but many know that God has His hands in everything we are.  Westminster is always seeking new opportunities to serve our community.  We know that we are not always aware of needs or issues that need someone to stand up for.  We want to encourage you to reach out to our Witness Team and share your story, tell us about your organization, and let's do God's work together if that is His will.

Serge-Jason & Heather Fadar

Serving in Burundi, in Central Africa, as the clinical teaching faculty for medical students who attend the medical school at Hope Africa University. Jason, the assistant medical director for Kibuye Hope Hospital, is one of about 10 general surgeons in the country of Burundi. This calling is an opportunity of tremendous potential to train and disciple African medical students who will be leaders of this underserved, impoverished, post-war nation.

Wayside Cross Urban Youth - Aurora Neighborhood Baseball League

We will continue sponsoring a summer baseball team as an incredible opportunity to reach families in our neighborhoods.  Our expectation is that, the whole congregation, will embrace this as an opportunity to show support to the many kids who take the field this summer and every summer.  We will encourage attendance as a way to fellowship not only with the baseball players and their families, but amongst ourselves.  Sharing our joy and laughter, and especially, our love of Jesus Christ with our Aurora community.
