Why missions?

Bring the Love and mercy of Jesus to your area of influence
Local and regional missional initiatives work with partners where we live, work, and play to provide you with your next step in reaching others with the love and hope of Jesus and restoring what’s broken in the world around us.

We work with many partners to reach people through church planting, pastoral training, child sponsorships and missions trips. We work to restore what’s broken through foster care and adoption, mentoring, recovery programs and life-skills training.

There’s plenty of opportunity for every follower of Jesus to engage missionally.

Here’s a great opportunity for you to live missionally, check out the Bridge BBQ trailer to throw a great party or event.
