Missions

 

The last thing Jesus said to his disciples was, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)

And we take those words seriously as we seek to love God through a life of worship, grow together as disciples of Christ, and inspire others to follow Jesus.

We invite you to check out upcoming Mission Trips, browse the missionaries with whom we partner, and then send an email to our Outreach Minister, John Veech, to let him know how God is stirring in your heart.

Missionaries With Whom We Partner

Elder Orphan Care

Elder Orphan Care exists to provide help and hope for older adults in need, a call based on the plea found in Psalm 71:9: “Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.” EOC serves hundreds of elderly and frail in Romania by partnering with nationals caring for older adults who have been abandoned or have no place to live. As a “come alongside” ministry, they provide encouragement, teams, funds, and resources. The EOC staff and one or more board members travel to Romania with teams at least twice a year to identify opportunities and provide practical helps that is found only in Him. In 2017 EOC began helping older adults in need in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, where Elder Orphan Care’s office is based. By collaborating with local senior-serving organizations they are able to meet a variety of practical needs while providing support and building friendships with individuals who are isolated and often extremely discouraged.
