We are a people with a passion for Jesus and His purposes in the earth!
We believe that all members of the body of Christ are on mission, called to proclaim and demonstrate the Gospel to the world in their own unique sphere of influence. With that, it is our commitment as a church to see the nations of the earth impacted with the Gospel and love of Jesus. We take mission trips multiple times a year, both in the United States and around the world, where we partner with local churches and focus on evangelism, discipleship and serving the community.
STORIES FROM OUR RECENT TRIPS!
The college trip to southeast Asia was incredible! Our students, some who have not been out of the country before, shared the gospel boldly, prayed fervently, and stepped out in faith continually. Here is a short story from the trip:
The country we were in is predominantly Muslim, and we would walk by dozens of mosques every day. Our team had been praying for Jesus's name to be exalted in this city and for the gospel to reach every aspect of the city. One day, a few of our team members were invited into the office of a mosque leader. The leaders asked our students why they were visiting their country, and the students got to share a little bit about why they were there. Long story short, as they were leaving the mosque, they were given permission by the leaders to sing a song for all of the children there. The students sang How He Loves in the middle of the mosque to a bunch of children! This is one of many stories of our students loving on people in the city.
The Youth Crew spent a week in Knoxville TN spreading the love of Jesus and it left a deep impact on the city and our kids!
One day we went to bless an apartment complex by going door to door offering to take people's trash out; it was a simple outreach but it lead to us spending our next two evenings at their community park getting to love on the kids and we closed it out with a sweet worship night!
Our students were so bold walking around the city praying for people at the mall, in parks and downtown. One student got a prophetic word for a specific woman, and she was able to meet her the very end of the trip. This woman and many others were truly touched by God's love because we were willing to step out and risk with God!
A quote from one of the team members about the trip:
"The Boone trip this weekend was a major success in showing the new team up in Boone what our God really values in His family. It was a great time for pouring into them as they received pastoral care, vision for outreach, and vision for community. They were impacted and motivated to help see our wonderful King establish Himself up in the high country of North Carolina."
