The process of missions can be a long and beautiful one. For Chris and Joi Copeland, they have been waiting to go to Ireland for four years. They are currently raising support and are almost fully funded. Their ministry focuses on leadership development, church planting, and serving the community. It all centers on bringing hope to the hopeless.

Chris and Joi share about how God called them to Ireland. They have many stories of God’s faithfulness and provision over the last few years. Their desire is to see the people of Ireland come to know God and find hope in Him.

We’re really trying to embrace where God has us now, and still working toward the future. – Chris & Joi Copeland Click To Tweet
