Meals from the Heartland

Jicarilla Apache Reformed Church in Dulce, New Mexico

Brad & Robin Kautz




Location: Dulce, New Mexico

Partner: RCA

What need is God showing us? Towering mountains, imposing mesas, and deep lakes make up the land of the Jicarilla Apache Nation reservation. This land in Dulce, New Mexico, is home to nearly 2,800 members of the Jicarilla Apache Nation, many of whom are plagued by alcohol and substance abuse, broken families and trauma, domestic violence, and a poor school system.

In a place where the RCA has had mission presence for more than 100 years, Brad Kautz serves as pastor for Jicarilla Apache Reformed Church (JARC). His focus is primarily pastoral ministry, which includes weekly worship, Sunday school, a community prayer meeting, youth ministry, and visits to residents of nursing homes, jails, and detox centers. Through these means, he brings hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

World Missions

We also support several missionaries who serve Christ sharing the gospel around the world. Here is a list of world ministries we support:


Bible League International

Abraham and Sayuri Kist-Okazaki

Location: Tokyo, Japan

Partner: United Church of Christ in Japan

What need is God showing us? They are teaching and training congregations in the United Church of Christ in Japan on how to incorporate contemporary music and "seeker-friendly" elements into their worship so churches can more effectively reach non-Christians, who make up 99 percent of Japan's population.

Jeremy and Susan Beebout




Ministry: Medicine, Agriculture, Volunteer Coordination

Location: Niamey, Niger

Partner: Evangelical Church of the Republic of Niger

What need is God showing us? Medical and agricultural development needs are extreme in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. Niger has only a rudimentary health system, so disease is widespread, and the country is always teetering on the edge of famine.
