Philokalia Ministries

Philokalia (fi-lo-ka-lee-a): "love of that which is beautiful or excellent," from The Philokalia, a collection of ancient Greek devotional texts written to enable one to find that which is truly beautiful and excellent in a relationship with God.

Missionaries Jerry & Pam Headen serve with a team in the Sansai district of Chiang Mai, Thailand.  Along with a desire to share the gospel with the Thai people, they lead a ministry which serves people with HIV/AIDS, those affected by HIV/AIDS and other disadvantaged people in Thai society.  Their work with people with AIDS and their families grew out of a conviction that the church is in the world as a sign and foretaste of the Kingdom of God;  therefore the meaning of the gospel must be illustrated through lives of service which accompany its verbal proclamation.

Their ministry is implemented by spiritual formation and evangelism through a growing Christian community.

Orchard Group

Starting new churches is the best way to reach new residents, new people groups and new generations with the gospel.
Orchard Group has been planting churches in the New York City metropolitan area for over sixty years and in the rest of the northeastern United States for twenty years.  New churches started by Orchard Group since 2000 are reaching over a thousand people in the metro areas of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and Pittsburgh. In the past few years we have expanded to other challenging, strategic, urban settings: Salt Lake City, Central Phoenix, Ventura, CA and Limerick, Ireland.  While we anticipate starting more churches in other U.S. and international cities, our highest priorities continue to be New York and the northeast.
