Global Ministries

We believe Jesus commands His church to not only reach out where we are locally, but also to show His love and spread the Gospel message of hope around the world.

We love cross-cultural ministry!  Our church family is integrally involved in supporting a myriad of missionaries, ministries, and projects the span the entire globe. We regularly take mission trips internationally to give people an opportunity to see the needs with their own eyes and be involved in helping with their own hands. It is a life-changing experience!  Some who have taken this adventure become so impacted and moved by their encounter that they dedicate their lives to missionary work overseas.
