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.
THE MINISTRIES WE SUPPORT:
Impacting the world around us is one of the greatest things we can do as a church. As part of the community of the Tri-Cities, Christ Fellowship wants to be more than just another building. We want to move out from our walls and into the streets to serve the needs of our world.
With your tithes and offerings, these are the organizations that we have committed to support by providing consistent monthly financial support:

Overcoming pain, problems and addictions can seem like an uphill battle when you’re facing them alone. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step biblically based recovery program for individuals and their families who are dealing with emotional distress and need healing power in their lives. Celebrate Recovery meets weekly at Christ Fellowship on Mondays at 6pm.
|Kingsport Young Life is a ministry to high school kids in the greater Kingsport area. Because kids don’t care how much you know till they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are and believing in who they can be. Kingsport Young Life’s Mission Statement is to give every teenager between the grades of six and twelve in the greater Kingsport area the chance to hear the gospel in a clear, attractive way in order that they might then decide to begin a relationship with God by following Jesus Christ.|
