International Missions

However it was after college, in the Spring of 2013, when God helped him gain a deeper understanding of his sin and find true rest and saving faith in Jesus Christ. Since he joined MVBC in 2015, his faith has deepened, and his view of the local congregation has grown. Soon Hyong is passionate about mission work overseas, and participated number of short-term trips with MVBC.


Rick Hutchins


Rick was raised in church and was baptized around age 12, believing that he had accepted Christ. But his life in college and early adulthood reflected a lack of true repentance and submission to Christ. In early 1983, in a business meeting, an old friend shared the Gospel with him, and God turned an ordinary meeting into a life-changing event. Rick says, “Our God is faithful and never gives up on us, never stops loving us, and my life is my proof of that.” Since coming to MVBC in 1985, Rick has served as an elder, preschool teacher, Sunday School Director, Deacon, Equipping Matters teacher, and on several committees.

Dennis and Paula were married in 1978 and they have three sons. They became members of Mount Vernon in 1996.
