Missions: LOCAL, GLOBal, and Church Planting/growth
We, as followers of Jesus Christ, have been commanded to "Go and make disciples of all the nations" (Matthew 28:19)
First Presbyterian Church is following that command by supporting over 50 local, national, and international missionaries and mission agencies. We also send out groups of students and adults to do various short term missions work. Approximately 17% of our annual budget is designated for missions and mission activities.
Our church mission work is divided into three target areas: Local Missions, Global Missions, and Church Planting/Growth. Click below to explore the organizations with whom we partner.
Every year, First Pres hosts a Missions Emphasis month which includes pastors and speakers from local and international missions and ministries. Their visits are a highlight of the year as they share their testimonies and provide a glimpse into all that God is doing in the areas in which they serve. Missions Emphasis Month is a wonderful time to get to know the heart we have for missions and enjoy fellowship with Christian missionaries from all over the world.
