Our goal is to do everything we can to bring the good news of Jesus Christ, the love of God, and our own personal involvement to as many people in the world as we can.
To maximize our impact, we have chosen to support key missions and develop long-term relationships and strong support in specific areas of the world. We balance evangelistic and church-planting missions with missions that help with social issues. Many of our missions do both. We also balance local missions with overseas missions. We give preference to missions that have people who have gone out from our church to serve.
We offer many opportunities for short term mission trips, internships, and long-term serving experiences.
We regularly bring missionaries to our church and have exciting programs featuring mission. Our Bariki (Swahili word for "Blessing") Cafe raises extra money for missions.
