"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:16-20


Great Commission

We the Church have been sent by Jesus to the task of the Great Commission. This mission is for everyone in the church, not just the missionaries. Making disciples – that’s our task. No one is excluded. There are no spectators.

So, everyone has a mission and our missions program is aimed at outreaching with our mission to those outside this local church. Our missions program puts emphasis on reaching the least reached peoples of this world especially through church planting.

We as a church seek to learn about and pray for missions. We seek to go and send people to the mission field. We seek to welcome people from other people’s around the world and mobilize our own to be going.  


Over the course of our seven and a half years in Thailand we watched 98 co-workers leave.

Some for legitimate reasons, but most not. So depleted in their souls that spiritual suicide seemed like their only option.

Hello. We are Dave and Irene Lewis, shepherds of global workers. We’re telling you our story so you’ll know that we understand the challenges of life in a cross-cultural environment. We have come to care deeply for those who serve in difficult places, and we want to use our empathy and our experience to bring encouragement and hope into their lives.

But we are deeply aware that the needs of the harvest force far outweigh our skills and capacity.

That’s why we are recruiting people like you to join us in creating a culture of care. Our friends and relatives who represent the Lord are simply too precious to neglect.

Far beyond helping them survive in their ministries, we want to see them thrive. And we are convinced that, with your help, we can make that happen.


The name North Country Christian Formation reflects our geographical location – in the mountains of New Hampshire – and our ministry goal – to help people work through difficult situations while being formed more in the likeness of Jesus. 

We seek to come alongside the work already being done by local churches so that the care given in our office is consistent with the message being put forth from the pulpit of your church. NCCF provides biblically rooted care for individuals, couples, and families, meeting with them while working with their home church to ensure the best support possible. 

We work with pastors and church leadership, providing ideas and support for implementing solid care plans for church congregations. NCCF also provides seminars with biblically based teaching to help congregations understand how the Bible speaks to situations involving the care of you, your church, and your community.
