DYLAN & RACHEL
Both Dylan and Rachel are passionate about college ministry and seeing young people grow in their walk with the Lord. Dylan was born in California and raised in Idaho. Rachel was born in Japan and raised all over! Part of a military family. Dylan has been serving in Thailand over the last 13 years. Rachel is finishing her seventh year in Thailand.
Dylan went to Thailand directly out of high school and faced many challenges. No education, no work experience, and little to no money made entering the mission field challenging. In 2016, God moved Dylan to provide opportunities for young people to pursue their call to overseas missions.
Paracletes provides a means for young people to follow their calling while studying their degree or interning abroad. Paracletes is a United States based non-profit working globally. We welcome young people interested in serving abroad.
May God always be the center and source for this vision. To Him be the glory!
To witness God change and transform lives by equipping the next generation to engage in holistic mission.
"I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh."
-Ezekiel 11:19 -
Our mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and witness hearts changed.
Jesus is the center of it all. From the dream, to the direction, to the applicants and ministries, Paracletes functions for the glory of Jesus.
We partner with local ministries and churches to serve and reach the lost.
All of our Paracletes meet regularly with a mentor. We desire for our Paracletes to be filled as they are pouring out.
Paracletes are immersed in a culture completely different than their own. It is truly an experience to live among people that uphold different values and way of life.
Our Paracletes are family. Community is established through shared housing, shared meals, events, getaways, camps, and more.
The university campus is a mission field. Paracletes do life with university peers and walk away with an accredited Bachelors.
Individual and church sponsors make it possible for our Paracletes to come with minimal fees.
