Introducing people in Woodbridge, VA to Jesus

Community

When you say “Missions” most people will think “going overseas for the cause of Christ”.  Unfortunately when we think of missions as, “over there,” we can overlook the needs on our own doorstep.

Jesus told us to “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere.” (Mark 16:15 NLT). It is our role to foster intentional relationships and opportunities to impact our world, locally and globally. We must realize everyday that we are on a mission to our unchurched friends and a world in need of Jesus.

As you look through our mission opportunities, open your heart to where God might be calling you to be used for His purposes. Expand your reach, move out of your comfort zone, broaden your vision and extend the love of Christ. By meeting peoples’ practical, everyday needs where they are at, we build relationships that are the foundation for sharing the love and salvation of Jesus.
