Our Spotlight Partners - Ben and Sarah Carey

Serving in Waren, Germany

Ben and Sarah met while studying at Nyack College in New York and married in July 2003. They served at Westgate Chapel for two years before being appointed and sent by the Alliance to Berlin, Germany in August 2007. In 2012, they moved to Waren to pioneer Alliance work in the spiritually apathetic northeastern corner of former East Germany. 

Currently, the Waren team consists of three families. They have seen great fruit from the international church they planted in their home. It has grown so much this past year that they now meet in the community center. They are also involved in their community by teaching classes, offering English Camps for kids and teens, and meeting the felt needs and spiritual needs of their German friends.

Ben and Sarah have four children: Travis (16), Hannah (14), Emma (11), and Leah (9).

Missions Giving - The Great Commission Fund

Being a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, Westgate Chapel is privileged to give to the Great Commission Fund (GCF), which funds and sends over 700 international workers around the globe to take the best news ever to the least-reached places. When you designate a gift to missions at Westgate Chapel, you are giving to the GCF as well.
