Our Heart for Missions
At Hope Community Church, we believe that our call to make disciples extends from our immediate community all the way to the ends of the earth. In fact, Christ has commanded His followers to make disciples of all nations. The necessity of believing in the message of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection for salvation transcends all languages, cultures, and ethnicities. In order to fulfill our call to reach the nations, we must be willing to carry the gospel message to where Christ is not known. Every person at our church can play a vital role in international missions through praying, giving, and going.
One way we work to accomplish taking the gospel to the whole world is through supporting long-term missionaries on the field. While we support a variety of mission efforts around the world, we desire to focus our funds on long-term missionaries who strive to make disciples through evangelism, discipleship, and church planting. Each year, we designate 10% of our total budget to further these causes. If you would like to pray for specific strategies or financially support one of our long-term missionaries, please stop by Starting Point to find out more information.
Another way we work to carry the gospel message to all nations is through short-term mission trips. Our short-term mission trips at HCC will always seek to serve two main purposes: to help further a long-term missionary’s strategy and to empower foreign nationals to reach their own people with the gospel message. We offer a number of short-term mission trips each year so that you can engage in effective international missions work. If you are interested in more information about these trips, please contact our Missions Pastor, Matt Carsner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
