Every time you back out of your driveway, you’re going on a mission trip. God has placed you somewhere strategically to do what you do to glorify Him and to be on mission for Him.

 

Serving leads to life change, and we believe that every follower of Jesus should be living a on mission in their community, state, nation, and the world.

Local Missions

Cobb County, Paulding County, and the greater Atlanta metro area is a beautiful place to live and do life with others. Many people in our own community have needs that are going unmet because they do not have anyone who can help meet their need. You or your LifeGroup may be just the ones to help these people, all while showing them the love of Jesus Christ. We have planted our lives in this community, so let’s be the ones that make a difference in our community and with our neighbors.

See below for a list of our Local Mission partners and find out where you can help meet the needs of those in your community.
