FAQ

Where does the name 'Come Over and Help' come from?

One of the apostle Paul's stops on his second missionary journey was Troas. At night, Paul received a vision of a Macedonian man appealing to him with these words: "Come over into Macedonia, and help us" (Acts 16:9). Paul knew this guidance was of the Lord, and so obeyed, and his time in what today is known as Greece was greatly blessed. COAH has adopted these words, believing that the Lord has opened doors and given opportunities to go over and help the needy churches in Eastern Europe that suffered so greatly under communism.
