Missions & Outreach
”the Father sent the Son and then the Spirit, we are sent into all the world with his gospel.”
“So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do everything I have commanded you. “And remember that I am always with you until the end of time.” ~Matthew 28:19-20 GW
“A generation restoring hope by serving others with the heart, hands, feet, and mind of Christ.”
“Helping Others Prepare for Eternity” (H.O.P.E.)
“Let my [our] heart be broken with the things that break God’s heart.”
Commissioned to Impact The World!
The Missions & Outreach Ministry exists as a way to fulfill the church’s calling to “go.” Through our calling we reach beyond the walls of the church to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Take time to explore our strategy, our partnerships, and opportunities. Prayerfully consider how you might be part of the amazing work that God is doing!

Faith Walkers serves in juvenile and adult facilities to support the incarcerated and their families. The team facilitates Bible study, worship service, and small group discussions. Answering the Biblical call to “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them” we go into facilities seeking to make an impact despite very challenging and difficult circumstances.
Deaf Ministry currently provides American Sign Language interpretation. God loves the Deaf & Hard of Hearing! The Deaf Ministry strives to ensure all have an opportunity to respond to God in a faith commitment. Interpreters are also available by request for other church activities.
