A note about Missions
from Pastor Mark

Our mission at Cheney Faith Center is to help people know Jesus and live for Him daily. Jesus told us in Acts 1:8 that helping people know Jesus and live for Him starts in your own city and extends to the ends of the earth. We are thrilled to partner with missionaries that are helping others know Jesus here in Cheney and in remote parts of our world. It’s our heart that everyone would get an opportunity to believe in Jesus as their savior and live for Him everyday. In this booklet, you will find individuals and families that have made a great sacrifice to serve Jesus around the world. It is our privilege to support them with our prayers, finances, and love as they preach the gospel in their demographic. Joining missionaries as they serve Jesus is a great way for us to Know, Grow, and Go for Jesus too. Please consider how you could pray and give financially to our missionaries. God Bless!

Ministry focus: Gary and Paula founded thinkSMALL and now train up teams within each outreach country to minister to children ages four to 14. This safety-based program has been invited into public schools in closed countries because trafficking and abuse are so prevalent.

With the help of our church partners, including Cheney Faith Center,  thinkSMALL currently supports, 14 thinkSMALL Training Teams in Thailand, Burundi, Congo, Kenya, Peru and in 2 restricted countries (we cannot mention their names).  These Training Teams have trained over 1000 local Church Teams to reach, disciple and protect children.  


Since 2007, over 485,000 (including over 75,000 adults) have made decisions to follow Christ through thinkSMALL ministry and over 80 percent have entered discipleship.


Hundreds of thousands of children have been helped through thinkSMALL Gospel Child Empowerment outreaches that empower children to resist abuse, trafficking and drugs.

The Triplett Family


Ministry focus: Karen facilitates worship and helps teach during weekly large group gatherings.  A larger part of her role includes administrative duties that allow the ministry to run smoother and the staff team more time to disciple students! She also spends time on campus doing outreach and meeting with students. 

About Karen:

Karen grew up in Chehalis and had always loved math so she decided to become a math teacher. She attended college at WWU in Bellingham. Although she graduated as a certified math teacher, she chose to do an internship year with the campus ministry she was involved with as a student. During the internship, God led her to join Chi Alpha at Eastern
Washington University, so she moved to Cheney in 2011. She eventually met her husband, Craig, in Spokane. Cheney now feels like home, but she makes a lot of treks over the pass for work and family. She loves going to concerts, playing shows when she has time, and drinking coffee with friends. Karen and Craig lead worship regularly at Cheney Faith Center.  Their daughter Renee loves stickers & bubbles, and is quickly learning new songs that she loves to sing!

Please pray for: New students for our leadership team to disciple, physical health as well as a spiritual hunger & desire for EWU students and staff


The Griffin Family


Taylor & Cassidy’s vision is to create a Spirit-empowered, diverse community of believers on Eastern’s campus, declaring in word and lifestyle their faith in Jesus Christ, equipped to fulfill their purpose in God’s global plan. Day to day looks like: meeting with students 1:1 for an hour each, planning and leading a small group, creating community and leading the large group meetings on Tuesday nights.

Jayce Freeman

Campus Crusade for Christ - EWU

Hey! My name is Jayce Freeman and I will be interning as Cru Staff at Eastern Washington University starting this fall. During my time at Eastern as a student, I was involved with Cru and Athletes In Action (AIA). AIA is a branch of Cru that focuses on doing ministry with student athletes. I am super excited for this opportunity to give back to Cru at Eastern and reach students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My ministry will focus on new students who attend EWU and the community that I already have established. I will also be working with AIA.
