The McKinnons serve in a suburban area of south Jersey just outside of Philadelphia. It’s primarily a residential area of 700+ homes. The area is home to many young families of various economic and religious backgrounds, working in Philadelphia.
The community is in need of strong Biblical teaching and training. New Covenant Presbyterian Church was planted specifically with this vision of community growth in mind. Matthew and Simone’s hope is to bring people into the church to hear and learn about Christ.
After seeing the need in their community, the McKinnons began to work with New Covenant Presbyterian Church for community outreach to youth and families, by teaching the Bible and sharing the gospel through fun activities. They are currently establishing a youth group and other community events to form relationships with local families.
Matthew and Simone want to meet the needs of the community by providing families a place to be involved with the local church.
The McKinnons became approved candidates with InFaith in 2018.
Matthew and Simone have been overseas in Brazil sharing their love for Christ through different children and youth ministries. They were both raised in Christian families and know the importance of the church for discipleship.
