MISSIONS & OUTREACH
We want to go deep with a few missions. We desire to give money and also time, labor, encouragement, prayer, etc. to each of our missions (missionaries).
Manheim Central & Warwick School districts.
Pennsylvania, the United States, & the World
We support 7 missions in these 4 areas - 2 local; 3 regional; an 2 national/global. We believe we can do more kingdom work when we are focused on a few missions.
Research, identify, and choose missions that align with our church's Vision, Mission, and Core Values.
Ensure that the church is aware of the purpose of missions and the missions we engage.
Train the church to have a Biblical view of missions and how to be involved in missions.
Help the church get involved and provide help and support to people deployed on mission.
There are thousands of good missions and missionaries out there. We cannot support and serve them all. Therefore, we must do the hard work of choosing a few to invest in. We want to ensure that our missions align with our church's Vision, Mission, and Core Values. When choosing and evaluating missions we use five criteria that are important to us:
Proclaims the Gospel
Provides Opportunities for Non-Financial Support/Involvement
Practices Financial Transparency & Good Stewardship
Purposeful in Helping the Local Church Further Its Mission
Preferably Reformed in Doctrine
