Missions

Our Missions Blueprint

Missions begins at the center of the heart of God, flowing from His unrelenting purpose to receive worship. We desire to have a church full of worshippers who truly understand that our actions are an outpouring of our desire to glorify God.

Part of our blueprint as Village Bible Church is Missions. As our multi-site church grows, our investment in missions – both in terms of financial resources and of people grows. Through the overarching ACTS 1:8 Ministry it is our goal to provide opportunities for partnerships to develop with missionaries as well as discipleship and mentoring for our congregation members in the area of missions.

Short Term Teams

Missions is not just something we pray for in distant lands. It is something we actively engage in on a regular basis.

Whether it’s our Global Action Teams engaging with partner ministries on the other side of the planet, or the Local Action Teams engaging in reaching our neighbors, and nearby cities, Short Term Action Teams are a critical part of our Acts 1:8 strategy. As Jesus was ascending into heaven, He commanded his disciples to be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. We want to follow that pattern ourselves. Starting close to home, and letting the ripple-effect of our faith spread.

Note: In order to go on a short term mission trip you must be a member of Village Bible Church. If you are under 18 years of age, you will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Long-Term Partners

As a church, we partner with missionaries and organizations who desire to make their life's work serving the Lord and proclaiming His work on the cross. We deeply value each person and organization we work with, and continue to be amazed with how God works locally and internationally. By forming genuine relationships with our long term missionaries, we desire to bring about mutual learning and a more meaningful partnership.
