join our mission

Instead of joining our congregation, we ask you to consider joining our mission. we are called by the grace of God, to reach out to all people with the love of Jesus Christ. If this is a goal that you feel that you can offer yourself to seeing fulfilled, we ask you to consider the following practices:

  • Regular worship
  • Individual study and prayer
  • Work in the community on behalf of those in need
  • Generous giving of resources

We do not want to quantify what each of these practices should look like in your life. Everyone needs to start where they are and set goals in faith. We simply ask our mission partners to set themselves on a path of discipleship.

We will offer classes in both the mission of our church and the discipleship practices twice a year. We encourage anyone interested in joining our mission to participate in the class. We will also have a celebration welcoming new mission partners to our family of faith several times a year.

If you have any questions about this process, contact Pastor Chris at 541-388-0765.
