Mission is about the building up of relationships for the Kingdom of God.  The World Missions Committee invites you to consider how you will be involved in building these mutually transformative and long-lasting relationships focused on friendship, faith sharing, knowledge, experiences, resources and prayer.  All of these offerings reflect a deep commitment in long-term ministry that will afford our communities many years to together “proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.”

All mission teams are selected through an application process.  Click Here for applications or you can contact Eric Moen directly.
