MISSION & OUTREACH

Featured Missionary

Fred and Janet Butterfield
Fred and Janet Butterfield
Military Ministry - Cru
Chesapeake, VA - U.S.

Fred and Janet serve military personnel and their families in Chesapeake, VA, working with military chapels and chaplains, local church pastors and their congregations, and parachurch ministries in South Hampton Roads. Ongoing activities include activities at Dam Neck Chapel, Camp Allen, a neighborhood ladies' Bible study, a small group from their church that meets weekly in their home, and individual mentoring and discipleship.

Fred has been working to connect Cru Campus ministries and Cru Valor (Cru's ministry to ROTC students) at Old Dominion University and Regent University, and hopes to initiate Cru Valor ministries at Hampton University and Norfolk State University.

Last year Janet launched a Military MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group at Little Creek Chapel in Virginia Beach. Average attendance was 13 moms and 17 children (babies to 5-year olds) per session. Military MOPS fills a relational void that exists in the lives of many of these young mothers, and within that context, Janet and guest speakers have opportunities to share the Gospel.

Prayer Requests:
1. For the Lord to raise up freshmen and sophomores within Army and Navy ROTC units in Hampton Roads.
2. For Military MOPS to build meaningful connections with military moms so they develop genuine, caring love for one another.
3. For Fred as he develops relationships with Navy chaplains; Fred and Janet deeply appreciate the ministry Navy chaplains provide.
