We are intentional to partner with Gospel centered Bible teaching ministries. We support these ministries in a variety of ways. We send volunteers and provide financial assistance.
Brazil's Unreached Indigenous Peoples
Coral Hill has been involved with Brazil's UPGs since 2007. Almost all of them are 'micro-peoples'. There are 4 groups in particular that Coral Hill has invested in through the sending of resident missionaries, Bible school sponsorships, Bible translation and the sending of short-term volunteer teams. Read more about these groups on the Missions Wall at CHBC.

Coral Hill supports an IMB team in North Africa engaging in evangelism and church planting among a Muslim people group in North Africa. We are currently sending multiple teams per year to support their business as mission tourism platform
M.G. came to faith at 16 years old and was discipled as a high school student in the youth ministry here at CHBC. As a student at WKU, she got involved with a campus ministry, and spent a summer sharing the Gospel in Central Asia. There, God captured her heart and increased her world vision. God led her back to Central Asia in 2012, 10 years later, to begin serving long-term among a different people group. In her time overseas, M.G. has worked with students, trained staff and interns and has served as her organization's Financial Manager in her country. She is now serving in finance for the 10-country region where she lives, helping provide services for over 500 staff.
The Tripura/Uchoi people are dispersed among areas of Bangladesh, India and Myanmar. Workers there recently completed a written version of the Tripura alphabet, and have since translated the entire New Testament into the mother tongue of the local people. Workers are now striving to get more copies of this Bible printed and audio recorded in order to reach deeper into and across villages in the region. Pray that more workers would be sent to help educate the people, so that they may come to a greater understanding of God’s love. Coral Hill helped Mark T establish Restoration International to better facilitate this ministry work.
Jacob Ketchens Family

Missions of Love
Through much prayer and guidance of the Holy Spirit, Missions of Love exists to serve the people in the mountains of northern Haiti, in a town called Jolivert since 1998. Their intent is to share God’s love through medical service, education, and preaching of the Gospel. They minister through meeting physical, educational, and spiritual needs. By first meeting the physical necessities of those they serve with food, clothing, shelter, and medical relief, they demonstrate the immediate impact of God’s love in people’s lives and teach it to them through the Gospel.
Jimmy & Elaine Shaw
God brought Jimmy and Elaine Shaw together from different continents while Jimmy was a career missionary and Elaine was a senior manager at a bank. He led them to the US in 2016, where they began ministering to international students and refugees in Bowling Green, KY. In 2018, Coral Hill sent the Shaws out to serve as Resident Life Managers at the Global Friendship House in Norfolk, Virginia. The house serves Old Dominion University and the surrounding campuses, through reaching the international students there, turning them into family and potentially leading them to become followers of Christ.
