Church Planting and Child Sponsorships

Creekside has the vision to help end extreme poverty and transform the country of Ecuador. To do this, Creekside is partnering with Compassion International and Stadia to plant churches, build child development centers, sponsor children and deepen relationships through sponsor trips.

How to Get Involved

Change the life of a child living in extreme poverty in Ecuador by sponsoring them.

For $43/month you can provide life-changing opportunities such as:
  • Education
  • Medical care and personal hygiene
  • Food
  • Vocational training, mentoring, and self-confidence
  • Most importantly, the opportunity to hear the gospel
If you want to sponsor a child in any of three church plants/compassion centers funded by Creekside, you can call Compassion International at 800-33-7676 Monday through Friday, 7a.m. to 5:30p.m. MT. Ask for a child from one of these 3 cities:
Santo Domingo EC0183
Santa Elena EC0660

Karen started attending our church in 1989! She joined staff just one year later and has the longest tenure of anyone on our staff. She accepted Christ when she was 22 and served as a missionary in China in ’87-’89. Karen was born in Olympia WA and also lived in UT, CO, NV, AZ and of course CA. She loves the outdoors, with her two favorite outdoor activities being hiking and kayaking. She believes there is something adventuresome about hiking and kayaking, but she also loves the reflective time both those activities afford a person. She also enjoys gardening and arts and crafts. Karen was given a life verse when she completed catechism and often leans into it: · 2 Corinthians 12:9 – “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” Her verse to live by: · Micah 6:8 – He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

About Creekside Missions

Our mission is to join God on His mission to reach and redeem this world from sin and brokenness.  We do this through strategic partnerships with missionaries and mission organizations locally and worldwide, by training and equipping people to live as disciple-makers, and by offering dozens of opportunities for people to actively engage in God’s global mission.

Missions | REACH exists to help people obey Jesus' final instructions “ you will be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8) within the context of the Great Commission “go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19-20) and within the confines of Jesus' return timetable “the gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).  Creekside desires to train and equip people to live missionally and be disciple makers and to resource kingdom building until all nations, tribes, peoples and languages (Revelation 7:9) have been reached.
