To glorify God through obedience to the Great Commission (Acts 1:8).
- The Global Missions Team is dedicated to glorifying God through obedience to the Great Commission using Acts 1:8 as our direction: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8
Many of our efforts are included in the 2017 church budget, but we were not able to include everything we feel called to do. Please prayerfully consider supporting our initiatives through the Global Missions Offering in 2017.
