MISSIONS MINISTRY

Make a Difference

Missions Ministry

Taking Jesus' message to all parts of the world

 

Our missions ministry is Make a Difference. We believe strongly God grows us to be more like Him when we join in His work in the world. We serve in missions to connect us with God’s work outside of our walls, our town and our nation. Some are called to go, others are called to pray, and others are called to support through giving. No matter the calling, it’s about taking Jesus’ message to all parts of the world.

Mission Partners

Reaching the World for Christ to Make a Difference

Each mission partner listed in this guide booklet, represents an expression of obedience to Jesus and the glory of our Lord. We desire through the gift of prayer, we can be united with them and willing to build a personal relationship, as we get to know them better. 

Local Compassion

Making a Difference in our community

The mission of the Make a Difference Action Team, is to connect you with opportunities and resources to meet needs and share the love of Christ with local ministry partners in our community.
