To our world
The international missions program is an exciting and dynamic discipleship and outreach program that is open to everyone who has a deep desire to be used by the Lord and who wants to personally experience and grow in Christ in ways that they never could through the local church environment. Short-term missions is a life-changing experience that not only challenges individuals to discover and develop the gifts and abilities the Lord has given them, but allows them the opportunity to use them for His glory. Most individuals who participate on these mission trips come back with a deeper and more fervent desire to pray for the lost, to know the Lord more intimately, and with a burden for the work of the Lord throughout the world.
We are offering short-term opportunities for all ages, including trips where the whole family can participate together.
There are over 1.6 billion people in the world who have never heard the name of Jesus and 2.4 billion who have heard the Gospel but have never made a personal commitment to Christ. That means that almost two-thirds of the world's population is destined to an eternity without Christ. We have the responsibility as believers to take the light that dwells within us to a lost and dying world!
Change your life, and someone else's, by taking a step of faith and signing up to go. You can make a difference!
