Advance God's Kingdom - Global Missions

Risk-taking mission and service certainly includes going to the ends of the earth!

We send individuals, teams, and support local missionaries all over the world.


To Advance God's Kingdom globally, join one of our upcoming mission trips or ask about other opportunities to support God's work overseas.


Email Drew Anderson with questions or concerns.
