Our Missionaries


    Amazima Ministries

    Claire Amico attended SGC for several years while she was attending IUP. Back in 2017, God called Claire to Uganda to serve with the Amazima School in Jinja. The mission of the school is to provide a classical Christian education for Ugandan youth. Claire serves with Amazima as a teacher for the staff members’ children. Please pray for Claire as she serves the Lord through teaching. 


    Children's Home Chain

    Mike Hartle is the founder and director of the Children’s Home Chain. The long-term vision of Mike's ministry is to care for orphans in East Africa with a series of children’s homes stretching throughout Uganda up to South Sudan. Raising Up Hope for Uganda (RUHU) is the first link of this chain and there is now another link, God’s Tender Mercy, a new children’s home for orphan refugees near the South Sudan border which already has 37 kids.



    Cru IUP

    Cru's desire is to see that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus. They seek this goal by sharing the Gospel, building up believers in their faith, and sending them out to be missionaries wherever they go.

    Mike coaches spiritual multipliers on several campuses in the Charlotte metro area--students who are actively sharing the gospel with those in their sphere of influence and discipling other Christians to help them grow in their faith, preparing them to do the same with others. He also oversees the training and development of new staff reporting to their campus assignments in the gulf states.
