MISSIONS

Carrying the good news of Jesus Christ across our city and worldwide
In Acts 1:8, Jesus told his disciples, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” He urged them to be witnesses of the Gospel locally in Jerusalem, regionally in Samaria and globally, to the ends of the earth. As followers of Christ, we carry on this tradition today.

#ForCincy

We don’t have to look outside our community, our neighborhood or even our own household to find people we can serve. Local missions begin when Christ-followers take a meal to a sick friend, babysit for a single mom, tutor a fatherless child or stand by an addicted relative.
It’s because of our love for our community that we started our local outreach ministry, Joshua’s Place. Since 2008, Joshua’s Place has been helping our neighbors break the negative cycle of generational poverty. Today we impact more than 1,000 lives each month through the work of 250+ volunteers.
Beyond Joshua’s Place, we have developed partnerships will local schools and organizations to be a church that is for our community. For more information about #ForCincy, check out www.forcincy.com.

GLOBAL MISSIONS

We partner with multiple organizations to see the Gospel preached around the world. When we serve outside our borders, it has a way of taking us out of our comfort zone and a step closer to fulfilling our call to go and make disciples of all nations. Together with international organizations, we are making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.

UPCOMING MISSION TRIPS

Saying yes to missions won’t just change others — it’ll change you, too. Mission trips transform the people who go as much as they help the people we serve. Seeing God work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is, how much He loves you, and the power of the Gospel.
