Serve – Local

We want to encourage you to share your time with others—reaching out either at a one-time event or on an ongoing basis. Mission Hills is proactive about reaching out with Christ’s love to people in our own community. There are many opportunities to serve.

In order to be as effective as possible, we have four key focus areas.

Key Focus Area

Many world communities are caught in cycles which prevent them from hearing the Gospel. The most immediate need they face is often for clean water, food, and the ability to provide for their family. Jesus had a heart for people; He met the physical need before addressing the eternal. In meeting the most basic needs of those we serve, we earn the right to also share God’s love. By educating locals, teaching hygiene, providing access to clean water, establishing sustainable businesses, and creating jobs, we are part of community transformation.

Life Center

The Life Center vision is Transforming Communities Period. We live this out by investing in one life at a time by sharing the hope and love of Christ while meeting immediate needs and providing long-term solutions to empower people to live the life that God has for them. We offer services including a language center, counseling, food bank, severe winter shelter, and more. (John 10:10)
