Our Church's Mission

Mission Around the World ~ Thailand ~
Annie and Jeff Dieselberg are based in Bangkok, Thailand, a bustling metropolis of more than 10 million people. Annie facilitates outreach in the red-light area and leads in the pray end deliverance ministry at NightLight. As an advocate for NightLight and the issue of women exploited in human trafficking, Annie also does a lot of networking and speaking. Jeff is the chaplain at NightLight and is also senior pastor of NightLight’s church plant, Song Sawang (“Shine the Light”) Church. Song Sawang Church began in May 2008, mostly with new converts from NightLight. Now, however, the original members of the church are reaching out to family, friends and strangers, bringing more growth and diversity to the congregation. In addition, Jeff works with a team of four trained adjunct faculty members to teach urban transformation at local seminaries, encouraging aspiring pastors and Christian workers to understand and engage in what God is doing in Bangkok and other cities of the world. Language used in ministry: Thai.
