missions

It is the great privilege of the Church to testify to the grace of God in Jesus Christ as we seek to promote the Gospel to all nations in word and deed. The spread of the Gospel is the unique and central calling of the Church, therefore Christ Community seeks to preach, teach and allocate resources to this end.  The Missions Team oversees our partnerships with missionaries around the globe as well as seeks to offer intentional ways for the congregation to be informed of missions efforts around the world. Some of missions initiatives currently going on at Christ Community include: 

  • Scholarships for individuals who wish to take the Perspectives in World Missions course. 

  • A commitment to allocate a 12% of the total operating budget to the Missions Team to use to support missionaries. 

  • A commitment to give money that is received in surplus of the Christ Community’s annual budget to ministries both local and global. Past recipients of surplus giving include: Lifesong for Orphans, Churches Helping Churches, Heart to Heart Counseling, and Midwest Food Bank.

  • Short-term mission trips which help foster a culture of missions and promote our core value of Beautiful Feet. A major purpose to providing short-term trips is to educate our congregation and mobilize it to accomplish the mission of carrying the gospel to all nations. It is our prayer that these mission trips will be used by God to raise up several people from Christ Community to become missionary workers.

  • Intentional education of our children about global missions through V.B.S., Sunday School, Children’s Church, and Little Lambs Preschool.

Mission Policy

Romans 10:14-15 states, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed?  And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?  And how are they to hear without someone preaching?  And how are they to preach unless they are sent?  As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”   We aim to be a church who deliberately seeks to spread the Good News among all peoples of the earth and consequently, “Beautiful Feet” is one of the five Core Values at Christ Community.  It is our continual prayer that the Lord will raise up missionaries from Christ Community to participate in the global enterprise of the making disciples of all nations

We believe that it's important for our missionaries to have a history of involvement with Christ Community. We want to have a personal relationship with those who go—being involved in their spiritual growth and their call to frontier missions. We believe this early active involvement

is as important as the financial support that will come later.  First consideration for support is given to those who have been involved with Christ Community family and ministries.
