Working Together to Advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ Among All Peoples

We believe our church has been given the joyous responsibility to engage our world with the good news of Jesus Christ. One way we seek to reach our world is through short-term mission trips. Our goal is to plan strategic short-term mission trips that result in sustainable gospel impact in specific locations. It’s our hope to lock arms with missionaries and ministry partners around the globe that could use our teams in propelling the gospel forward.
