We believe living a life of generosity is the key to seeing the Good News of Christ reach the ends of the earth. Jesus generously gave His life for us which motivates us to give sacrificially so others can know the same grace we have experienced!
Our prayer is that through your sacrificial giving, we would see people both here and around the world come to know the salvation of Jesus and bring glory to Him through their lives.

Besides praying and giving, another way to support missions is to go. Our church has a number of short term mission trips each year. We send teams four times a year to West Africa where we partner with local believers to spread the gospel and disciple new believers. We have worked with church plants and ministries in North America, including Gladstone, Missouri; Canada, Mexico, Wyoming, St. Louis, Boston and Illinois.
