We believe strongly that missions should be a priority for every Bible-believing and gospel-centered church. Scripture teaches that those who reject Jesus Christ during this life will spend eternity in hell during the next life. Therefore we financially support a number of individual missionaries all around the world. Click here for more information about our missionaries. About twice a month we share about one of these missionaries in our services so that our congregation can stay informed about how God is working through them.
Sometimes missionaries whom we do not support financially ask for the opportunity to present their work in our services. When our church calendar allows for it, we invite them to come and share with us. This time gives our people the opportunity to find out what God is doing around the world. If you would like to support them financially, we encourage you to do so. Of course, the most important means of support is through prayer, not through dollars. We urge you to pray for any missionary who is on your heart.
Occasionally we consider the possibility of supporting an additional missionary. This process begins with the prospective missionary meeting with our missions pastor. After a period of interaction in which doctrinal agreement and a shared ministry philosophy can be verified, a recommendation is made to our elder board for the final decision regarding financial support. Our goal is to stay in regular contact with our supported missionaries and have them visit us whenever possible.
If you would like to learn more about this ministry or find out how you can become involved, please contact Curtis Lewis, our missions pastor. We have opportunities for our people to host visiting missionaries overnight in their home or even for just a meal. These wonderful times allow people to get to know our missionaries more personally and to hear great stories of how God is working on the fields where they serve. We also send at least one team each year on a short-term missions trip. Click here for more information about our missions trips.
