Reaching the Nations for Christ
Here at Mountain View Community Church we are committed to following God's lead in reaching the Nations with the good news about Jesus Christ. With that goal in mind, we actively support many ministries both locally and internationally with an emphasis on church planting and compassion ministry.
This not only involves supporting individual missionaries, but also mission organizations, mission fields, and other organizations dedicated to spreading God's Word through the establishment of local churches no matter where they may be.
Our Missions Purpose Statement
The MVCC Missions Ministry exists to:
- Equip believers to do missionary work
- Send believers into the mission field, and
- Support missionaries going to the mission field
so that: (1
) new churches are planted, specifically among the un-reached,
) the beauty and truth of the Gospel is proclaimed in word and deed, among all peoples, to the glory of God.
Every year we seek to send short term teams to do missions. Prior to each trip, members do prep work to get themselves spiritually ready and equipped to do the ministry in the field. Approximately 10% of our Missions budget is set aside for EQUIP.
We encourage and challenge God's people at MVCC to go on short term trips as well as to prayerfully consider missions. Our trips range from service-oriented mission trips to evangelistic trips where each day we share the Gospel in individual group settings, with the purpose of helping assist the growth and planting of churches. These trips are for youth, college age and adults. Approximately 30% of our Missions budget is set aside for SEND.
Finally, Mountain View supports church-planting missionaries worldwide in countries such as Brazil, the Czech Republic, Mozambique and the Philippines, as well as local mission organizations such as Youth for Christ and Young Life. In addition we support a Christian orphanage in Sudan. Approximately 60% of our Missions budget is set aside for SUPPORT.
Praying for Persecuted Believers
At Mountain View we would like to bring awareness to the plight of persecuted believers in the world today so that we can pray for them. www.persecution.com
