Building relationships by engaging and connecting people with God’s Word!

Because they endured more than three generations of communist-imposed scientific atheism, there is no older generation to come alongside the Spiritual Orphans in Central and East Europe, Russia, the Baltics, the Balkans, Mongolia, and in Ethiopia.

YOU are the generation of believers called to share your Faith with these precious people who:

  • Don’t know that they have a Father in Heaven who loves them.
  • Don’t know that they have Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
  • Don’t know that there is a global family of Believers where they can be nurtured in the Light and Hope of Jesus Christ.

The spiritual darkness and challenges of the nations we serve are uniquely different from more common, third-world missions destinations, and so can often offer a more impactful spiritual transformation in the local peoples and in missionaries, alike. Relational ministry is what makes the mission of SON Network unique from other organizations. While social service missions of building homes and digging wells are a necessary and blessed way for God’s people to make a positive change in people’s physical lives, often it is not until the last day of work that the subject of the Gospel in Jesus Christ may be shared. The part of the world we serve already provides for basic human needs and infrastructure. What is lacking is a connection to God. YOU can be that connection! At SON, our missions allow for our team members to begin engaging people in the Gospel almost as soon as the plane lands in country!
