Ministry Partners

Besides many one-time gifts or short-term commitments to various ministries, Bear Creek Church is blessed to regularly partner with these ministries and missionaries through financial support and contributions of time and resources.

Pastor Sam & Mildred Machaka – Brink Ministries
Harare, Zimbabwe
Bear Creek Church partners with hardworking servants Sam and Mildred Machaka to assist very needy people outside Harare, Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is recognized, by several measures, as one of the poorest nations on the planet. So the people who live in the area outside Kambezuma can be said to be among the poorest of the poor. Sam and Millie have catalogued the needs of many of these people, many of them HIV/AIDS orphans and widows, and work hard to help them in practical ways.  A primary focus of their work through Brink Ministries is to train Pastors and church leaders in southern Africa.  They have trained leaders in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Tanzania.  CLICK HERE for more information about Brink Ministries.
