At CF we believe “missions” isn’t limited to a scheduled event or a trip overseas, rather it is a lifestyle of love and service that flows out of our connection and devotion to Christ. In every moment we have a privileged opportunity to partner with what God is doing in the world – where He’s purposed to release His power to transform the world around us through OUR lives. – Missions begins the moment we let God know we’re available, and our “yes” is on the table.
As a Spirit-led community of Christ-followers, we desire to be engaged with Him wherever and among whomever He leads. Growing and influencing where we are planted here at home, yet embracing and engaging in whatever role He would have for us globally as well.
Where it’s so easy to reduce the role of missions as merely a channel for ‘meeting needs.’ It’s our aim to be a church that prioritizes people above projects and relationships over resources. It’s from this heart for relationship we want our resources to flow, enriching the lives of many people with tangible expressions of love.
Our vision for missions is to equip churches, leaders, and cultures to be all God designed them to be by embracing the gospel of Jesus Christ, discovering how to maximize gifts and talents and living out a Biblical Worldview. Over the last few years, our International Missions Teams have traveled to the country of Nicaragua with a focus of establishing and building relationships with several local organizations. While working with a local church and school, we have seen the beauty of the country and its people as we strive to impact His Kingdom.
One of the ways CF is making a tangible difference in the lives of children in our region is through our Mentor Program in partnership with John Adams Elementary School. Mentors from our church consistently meet with the child they’re mentoring to show love and influence them in a positive direction.
