Jonathan & Nicola McCracken
Our desire is that people will come to a personal understanding of the Christian message and decide to live for God, putting their hopes in Jesus Christ and not on themselves and their own merits.
Church Planters in Ireland
In July 2013, Jonathan & Nicola moved as a family from Tramore (SE Ireland) to the town of Claremorris in the West of Ireland. They are partnering with the locally based “Calvary Mission” (CM) that has been serving towns in County Mayo for a number of years. CM consists of workers from USA, Australia, N.Ireland and Republic of Ireland who are affiliated to several sending missions, but working together on various church-planting opportunities, mainly in Co. Mayo. Jonathan is the Member Care Facilitator within ECM and is also part of the Field Council. Jonathan and Nicola’s focus of ministry locally is the ongoing church-plant in Claremorris.
Claremorris is a growing town of around 5,000 people in the heart of Mayo. Calvary Church Claremorris began in 2016 and currently meets in the local Town Hall. Outreach efforts are combined with discipleship in the small church which has drawn people from different countries as well as local people. Currently, Jonathan and Nicola work in a team together with another couple from N.Ireland. From Claremorris, there is the further potential to reach out into other towns with similar need for a gospel witness.
