God has been using the disciples in Oregon in some powerful ways these past few years. With the official launch of the University Church of Eugene in 2015, God has grown their fellowship from 14 disciples to over 75. He also has thrown opened the doors for them to plant churches in Corvallis (Willamette Valley Christian Church) and in Bend (Bend House Church) Oregon. However, not only are the Eugene disciples winning souls for Christ in Oregon, God is also using them as “Good Samaritans” (Luke 10:25-37) to impact the lives of those living on the thousands of remote islands of the South Pacific through a non-profit charity called Sea Mercy.

Fiji, Vanuatu, Tahiti, Palau, Tonga, Samoa…Just hearing the names of those islands conjures up travel brochure images of a warm tropical sun setting in the distance over blue turquoise waters, palm trees, secluded white sandy beaches, and air-conditioned hotels, calling to your inner most desires. As real and appealing as those images may be, there is another calling in the South Pacific that few hear or know about. It's an urgent call for help.
Who has heard of fifteen disciples from eight states starting a church together without ever meeting one another before? Until this year, we hadn't either! You may know Eugene, OR as home of Nike, Track Town, Duck football, or "old hippies don't die, they move to Eugene." But now, due to the hand of God through the amazing vehicle of Disciples Today and the One Year Challenge, he started the University Church of Eugene in just that way!
Hello from Nicaragua!
If you have been following the story of us, Steve and Sandy Jacoby, then you know we are both in our mid-fifties and empty nesters. Three years ago we moved to Nicaragua wanting to help the poor and needy in some way, but with nothing definitive in mind. We spent our first 16 months in Managua getting to know the disciples, learning the language and feeling our way around.
