The Orchard Community Service Team

The Orchard Community Service Team is a group of men volunteering to help those in the community (e.g. single moms, seniors, those who have lost jobs) that can’t take care of their homes. Teams meet the second Saturday of every other month.
To volunteer, contact Bill Triplett, 847.705.6229. 

It is our aim to pray, give and serve in evangelism, church planting and leadership development in our partnership areas. These areas include the Balkan region of Europe and eastward into Central, South, and Southeast Asia. We pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out equipped Gospel-minded laborers into his harvest. As God has entrusted to The Orchard spiritual, physical and financial resources, we engage with our partners to meet their greatest needs and opportunities. We then respond to their invitation as fellow workers in the harvest to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In addition to our partnership areas, we support more than 70 individual missionaries serving around the world! If you’d like to know more, contact Brad Mullet, Director of Global Ministries.  


Sign up to receive weekly email updates about our 70 full-time missionaries. Pray for all those who labor in the Gospel for boldness, perseverance, faithfulness.


A significant portion of the General Fund directly supports Global Ministries. Give online.
