Other Mission Opportunities
Missions are a big part of the Kingdom of God: "Go and make disciples of all nations..." What a joy and privilege to be in active pursuit of reaching out with love and service to God’s precious children, right here at home... in our community... and around the world. Here are some additional Mission Opportunities outside of Messiah.

Messiah has been blessed to partner with MOST in a variety of ways (church construction, English/VBS camps, and eyeglass clinics) on trips to Guatemala, Russia, Puerto Rico, China and Poland. MOST will be happy to connect you to a mission team.
