We partner with local ministries and global missionaries, send short term mission trips, and participate in additional projects throughout the year. All of these engage God’s mission for His glory, and we hope everyone will join us to pray, give and go for the sake of the gospel.
We currently have volunteer teams that help lead our church in this area. These teams oversee our participation in projects, mission trips, and support our current partners, and identify qualified missionaries and ministries for future partnerships.

Through short term mission trips (STMTs) we have the opportunity to impact people we may otherwise never meet, in places we may otherwise never go, for the glory of God. We hope to do this by serving ongoing ministries and missionaries around the world who work daily to make disciples of Christ in their community. Ultimately, our goal in sending STMTs is to obey our calling to be witnesses for Christ to the ends of the earth, grow our people in their devotion to Christ, and encourage our missionaries in their ongoing gospel ministries.
