This page highlights some of them.  Some are not included for security reasons.

Szabolcs Kerekes

Szabolcs serves with CRM (Church Resource Ministries) and Barnabas Csoport in Budapest Hungary. CRM empowers leaders to go to the unreached and unchurched, to bring transformation among the poor, and to mobilize the Church for mission…so that disciples are made among the nations.

Szabolcs mentors and trains church planters in evangelism, visits young people in juvenile detention centers to talk with them about God, and leads courses for pastors and youth workers.

Enrique & Becky Fernandez

Quique and Becky have been supported by Northbrook for more than 20 years! They train leaders in Latin America through an online Bible training course they created called ProMETA. 

ProMETA provides education at the post-graduate level in the areas of theology and leadership. It uses a decentralized model that allows leaders to continue their education without having to leave their ministries or countries. This opens up opportunities that they otherwise would not have, because many cannot afford to leave their ministry to pursue more education.

Walter & Marian Pimpong serve with International Needs in Ghana.  Their work  includes evangelism and discipleship, education and community development, protecting women and children from exploitation, and helping to train women in vocational skills.

"We are born with potential, yet we see a lot of human potential go to waste in many communities in Ghana and abroad as a result of barriers of extreme poverty, deprivation, exclusion, disease, hunger, discouragement and limited opportunities.  For many years International Needs Ghana has made great strides in reaching many communities in Ghana with various developmental projects, bringing hope to many individuals and families by providing skills and empowering the most vulnerable to make the most of the little they have."
