Our mission is to bring individuals into a deeper relationship with Christ while igniting a passion within them to impact both local and global churches and communities.
Our vision is to equip and help churches around the world to connect, disciple, and reach their surrounding communities.
The organization was born out of Hayley Magouyrk's desire to expose the high school students she was teaching to foreign missions and the language they were learning, (Spanish), as well as impact people for Christ. Her first year as a teacher, she and her husband took their first group of students to Costa Rica, and have taken students on mission trips every year since, expanding to Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Cuba. The name of the organization refers to Psalm 96:3 which reads, "Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples."

"963 Effect has been a huge factor in how God has created a passion in me to serve Him by sharing His love with people all around the world. Since my first trip in 2009 my desire to do missions work has grown drastically, and led to my decision to pursue ministry as a career."
