MISSIONS

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."

 

- Matthew 28:19a

Missions Committee

Our Mission and Vision


To make disciples and grow Christ-like followers of Jesus, by effectively supporting and partnering with mission organizations and missionaries to share the Gospel and the love of Christ beyond our local community.

Our Areas of Support
CHURCH
Planting

Church planting is one of the primary goals of CPC and ECO (our Presbyterian denomination). Therefore, the CPC mission committee has placed an emphasis on supporting missionaries and mission agencies that are focused on building God's kingdom via indigenous/local preachers who are devoted to church planting.

SERVING
Others

Jesus called us to serve one another and CPC has always strived to do that.  We are blessed to support missionaries that are serving others with their work in healthcare, education, inner-city outreach, rescue and relief, orphanages, and through the translation of the Word of God.  

DISCIPLESHIP & TRAINING

In support of our goal of planting churches, we believe that we must be at the forefront of supporting leaders who are capable of discipling and training future leaders to serve in a similar capacity.

SHORT-TERM MISSIONS TRIPS

We encourage and seek opportunities to support congregation members to experience short-term mission trips that have a strong spiritual component, by providing one-time scholarships based on individual requests.
