Missions

We partner with local ministries and global missionaries, send short term mission trips, and participate in additional projects throughout the year. All of these engage God’s mission for His glory, and we hope everyone will join us to pray, give and go for the sake of the gospel.

We currently have volunteer teams that help lead our church in this area. These teams oversee our participation in projects, mission trips, and support our current partners, and identify qualified missionaries and ministries for future partnerships.

Short-Term Teams

As we have witnessed the global spread of COVID-19, as well as the response that various countries have had to this pandemic, it is evident that we have not reached a point whereby travel outside of the country would be considered safe.  Given these facts our leadership, in consultation with local physicians and some of our missionaries, has reached the decision to cancel all upcoming international mission trips for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year.  As important as these trips are to our missionary efforts, we believe that travel outside of the U.S. would assume an inherent risk to our team members and also to our missionaries.  We believe it is the most prudent action to exercise caution until we can ensure the safety of all involved.  We will continue to communicate with our missionaries to assess how matters evolve.  We are looking forward to resuming trips in 2021.  Should you have any questions regarding this measure, please do not hesitate to reach out to Walter Arroyo, Mission Pastor, at (205)901-3576 or by email at waltera@mbcc.us.
