"Just watched VJF Livestream. We are both humbled and grateful that you folk care for us so. In a year where support raising is almost impossible, and with missionaries contacting us weekly, it's as if God is saying to us through you all, "I've got this."

"All we can say is what you quoted from Pastor Leonard, 'WOW!' We want to thank all of Jubilee for the sacrifice to make it possible for us to coach and train missionaries."

Lewis & Karen McClendon

"We, like Leonard, say "Wow"! In fact, it was more like "WOW! Thank you, Lord!" We are extremely thankful to everyone at VJF... their gift is a tremendous aid as several of our financial supports have had to reduce the amount they were giving us."

Ryan Lee Taylor - Missionary

Greater Europe Mission/GemStone Media

As a new missionary of my generation, I am honored to be partnered with VJF Missions to speak truth into the hearts of the lost as I live and work in Germany over the next several years. Having your support of my ministry, one that utilizes new media and yet is built on the biblical foundation of parable speaks volumes to your faith and discernment as a body of Christ. Please pray that God will help me achieve the 100% support funding I need by the end of this year.

The Lighthouse

For Women & Children

The Lighthouse for Women & Children serves homeless single women and mothers with children. The Lighthouse established its Life Recovery Program in 1998, offering a transitional living environment that included a drug and alcohol recovery program. In 2003, the Lighthouse established a year-round emergency shelter that also serves as an overflow shelter when the two domestic violence shelters in Ventura County are full. In 2007 we acquired two additional facilities to expand services for women and children.

“And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:15

The apostle Paul identified two important components of missions — those who “go” and those who “send.” Churches and missionaries―two halves of a team extending God’s kingdom worldwide. We encourage one another, pray for each other, while sharing progress and challenges. Through this spiritual partnership, God is glorified, and both parties are greatly strengthened in their vision and mission.

At Ventura Jubilee Fellowship, our mission is “Every Member Connected”, whereby every congregant and ministry within the church prays diligently and regularly for our local community, our missions partners, and their work. Additionally, we demonstrate our long-term commitment to our missions partners through regular financial support. We believe it not only blesses them—but it also blesses us (Philippians 4:15-19).

Our prayer is for our mission partners to be used to open doors and soften hearts for the cause of Christ. His Word says, “those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.”―Psalm 126: 5-6
