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

Mission Trips 2021
We started the year hopeful that we would be able to send mission trips in 2021/  However, after keeping informed of the latest developments related to domestic and international travel, and after having multiple conversations with our partners, we have decided to cancel all international trips for 2021 at this point.  This decision was made after accounting for all pertinent factors and keeping the safety of everyone involved a top priority. 
 
The only mission trip that remains on our calendar for 2021 is the one through Lighthouse Family Retreat which takes place in Florida in July. We will continue to keep abreast of international travel restrictions and will also remain in communication with our partners to determine when we can again safely send teams to support the efforts of our global missionaries. Thank you for your understanding and support.
 
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Walter Arroyo, mission pastor, at waltera@mbcc.us.
