MissionFest ’21: MERF and Rev. Buikema

On Sunday, Oct 24th, we welcome Middle Easter Reformed Fellowship (MERF) and spokesman Rev. Derek Buikema to Zion!

What is MERF?!

“Middle East Reformed Fellowship (MERF) is an evangelical Christian missionary organization which serves in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia on behalf of Reformed and Presbyterian Family of Churches and believers worldwide. Our work is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of Christ among the twenty-two nations of the Arab League and other Muslim areas in Africa and Asia. MERF strengthens national churches with ministries of evangelism, church extension, biblical training, and diaconal aid.” You can see more about MERF and her ministries here.

Rev. Derek Buikema serves as pastor of Orland Park Reformed Church (CRC) in Illinois, and he will be sharing on behalf of MERF. At 9:15, Rev. Buikema will present in the Fellowship Hall on the ministry and methods of MERF. At 10:30, he will be preaching in the worship service on Ecclesiastes 2. Plan to join us for these special events!

Zion is pleased to support Zion as one of our Missions of the Month. If you would like to personally support MERF, you can find ways to pray, get involved, and financially support them here.
