Amy Blair - Chiang Mai, Thailand

Sending Organization – Wycliffe Bible Translators




Amy Blair grew up in Tremont, IL. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to be a jungle missionary, living in a grass hut and eating bugs. She dreamed of teaching national children how to read and write, but said she would never teach missionary kids in a big city. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute with her elementary education degree, God used many people and circumstances to convince her that she could indeed be a real missionary by doing what she grew to love, teaching missionary kids.


Amy has been teaching 3rd and now 5th graders at Grace International School ( in Chiang Mai, Thailand, since 2003. Grace serves over 600 students, primarily children of missionaries who are ministering in over 24 countries.


Besides her students, Amy also deeply loves the Thai people who live in and around Chiang Mai. She has been able to learn the Thai language so she can build many relationships with them by shopping at the local markets, hanging out with them, planting and harvesting rice in villages, and living with Thais from time to time. Her heart’s desire is that all Thais will soon have their eyes opened to the truth and turn their hearts to Jesus.

Bryan & Jennifer Hepp - Tremont, IL

Sending Organization – Cru




It gives Bryan and Jennifer joy to serve as an interdenominational ministry focused on turning lost students into Christ-centered laborers. While they were both in college, the Hepps experienced significant and lasting life-change because of Jesus through the college ministry on campus. Both grew in their faith, learned to introduce others to Him and were called by God to continue to invest in college students, the next leaders of this nation and world. They have the opportunity to reach students from the inner-city, international students from all over the world, art students, future politicians, CEO's, doctors, lawyers, teachers and so on. The Hepps coach and equip students to lead Bible studies, disciple and share Christ with other students and engage in spiritual multiplication.


Jennifer grew up attending NCF with her parents, Gary & Ann Williams, and her grandparents, George & Shirley Renner. Bryan grew up in Omaha & Kansas City.

Contact the Hepps and Stay up-to-date with all that God is doing with college students by signing up for prayer emails and newsletters.

Stephen & Liz Hillrich - Morton, Illinois

Sending Organization – Camp of Champions USA (


Hillrich 2 


Stephen serves as the Program Director of Camp of Champions USA, a Christian Summer Day Camp for kids in the Central IL area. Each summer, COCUSA hosts multiple summer camp locations, and serves over 500 kids. We know that parents are often distracted by the chaos of real life and feel like they aren't able to give their kids their best. We help by offering a summer day camp for kids that is safe, fun, and Jesus-centered, and gives parents confidence to make their summer count. In order to do this, we also hire 125+ high school and college-age students each summer who want to make disciples of Jesus. By reaching the kids and their parents, encouraging growth in teens, and partnering with local churches, COCUSA is focused on following Jesus' example of discipleship in everything we do. In the Program Director role, Stephen designs, prepares, and implements the day-to-day program at each of the Camp locations. Stephen has been full-time at COCUSA since the Spring of 2017.  In January of 2019, Stephen and Elizabeth were married. They met in college at Greenville University, and now live in Morton, IL. Liz works at Samaritan Ministries in Peoria.
