“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
– John 15:12
We are all called to be participants in the work God is doing in our own community, and in communities around the world. Whatever your passion may be, there is a place for everyone to get involved in our Love Local or Love Global partners. You can help transform the lives of people around the globe, people who are each uniquely created in the image of God, while sharing your personal Christian witness with the larger Kingdom of God. Below are just a few of the ways you can get involved in the life of our church, both on our campus and our community.
Every year, we take multiple mission trips across the United States and around the world. If you would like to participate in a mission trip, feel free to contact the designated team leader for the trip. We will update this list of trips frequently as new partnerships begin to form. Check out our upcoming trips, or read about our past trips, here! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
