BOLDLY BRINGING HOPE

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

University Christian Church is on a mission to love God, love people, and bring the two together. We want to see movements of people becoming disciples of Jesus who will go and tell others about him both here in our community and all around the world. We designate over 20% of our budget to missions and partner strategically with people who do full-time work all over the world to accomplish this task. Every time you give at UCC it's an investment for other’s to hear and respond to the Gospel ALL around the world. Below, we've highlighted a few of the ministries we support and the impact they are making. To the right is a map of where we are located. **Some of our missionaries are in restricted/closed countries and are not on the list. 

LOOKING FOR YOUR NEXT STEP WITH MISSIONS?

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. Romans 12:3-8

Our hope is that each person in the church understand and use their unique gifts. By providing short-term trips, giving opportunities, teams to serve with, and local outreach ideas, we hope you find a way to engage in service or learning to grow these gifts.

JOIN OUR MISSIONS TEAM
There are multiple teams of people who work to coordinate missions and care for our missionaries. Email Greg at missions@university.church to join the Mission’s Team!

GIVE
Did you know that less than 1% of all dollars given in the American church go to global missions? That means that less than 1% of dollars are going to those who have never heard the gospel. By stewarding 20% of our general giving to missions, we are changing this statistic and helping bring the Good News here in Manhattan and all around the world!

SERVE
Does going overseas seem like a lot to you? That’s okay! You can help right here at home in Manhattan. There are hundreds of opportunities to serve those around you. Need ideas? Send us an email for current opportunities and we would be happy to connect you with a local organization we support! Send Greg an email at missions@university.church.

GO
Are you interested in going overseas or already have a short-term trip planned? Send us an email for more details on how we can partner together!
