Foreign Missions: We are fortunate at Southeastern to have members who have served as long-term missionaries as well as others who have made many short-term trips. They help provide much knowledge gained from their varied experiences. Foreign missions is overseen by a Committee of six. Our budget has remained unchanged for a number of years. Currently we provide significant support to four families. The countries involved are Honduras, Haiti, Zambia, and Rwanda. Mission Lazarus is overseen by Jarrod Brown in Honduras and Haiti. We have two families in Rwanda - the Schrecks and the Davenports. They both work with Kigali International Community School. Dr. Kent Brantly and family serve at Mukinje Mission Hospital in Zambia. (Kent 'grew up' at Southeastern and previously served in Liberia. He is the one very publicized when he returned from Liberia with Ebola five years ago. He was a tremendous witness for Christ on a national level.). Medical and/or construction teams made up of Southeastern members have served short-term in Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, and
Tanzania, through the years. Other members have served in various locations. This is encouraged and financial assistance is provided.
Domestic Missions: Domestic missions is overseen by another member and has a separate budget. Usually various ministers or ministers in training are supported. Teams from Southeastern have served in different locations in helping with disasters: for example the flooding involving the Houston, Texas area. A team has gone to provide vacation Bible school at a Hispanic church in Ft. Worth, Texas the last several years.
