From the beginning of our church, world missions has been the heartbeat. From the very first day, 10% of all general donations has gone straight to missions. This is above and beyond any specifically designated missions donations.
It is our common practice that well over 15% of our entire church budget is ‘given away’ in support of partnering ministries here in our area and around the globe.
This generosity towards God’s work globally will continue to mark us as a church. Below are some of the missional organizations we partner with stretch out our open hands to know God, become like Jesus, and change our world.
BIC Global: Church planting in Cuba
In late 2017 we entered a long term partnership with BIC Cuba to plant a church in Sancti Spiritus. We are committed to resourcing and praying for this specific work.
Tytoo Gardens Children’s Foundation is located in the village of Simonette on the west coast of Haiti. Our support is a major contributing factor to the ongoing nature of this ministry and the care of these children.
