We want our church family to be engaged in the process of making disciples of all nations through praying, giving and serving. Here are some of the ways we do that.
- We show monthly ENGAGE Partner Updates in our Sunday morning services that highlight our strategic ministry partners
- Once a year, we bring in all of our partners to Nashville for a time of sharing and encouragement during our ENGAGE Global Celebration
- During the ENGAGE Global Celebration, we have ENGAGE the City, a hands-on service activity where our church family can serve alongside our local ministry partners
- In two of our lobbies you'll find digital kiosks and large wall maps displaying the locations of our ENGAGE Partners
Short-Term Mission Trips
Throughout the year we offer many short-term mission trips, allowing church members to serve in a way that fulfills a strategic need and leads to long-term, gospel-centered transformation. Our teams have served in evangelism and church planting, children’s ministry, construction, medical care, pastoral care and leader training in the U.S. and abroad.

Leading our fourth VBS with Redemption Fellowship in Fall River, we have the opportunity to further relationships in the Corky Row community that has been growing and bearing fruit as the Lord continues to work. It has been a joy to see the Lord raise up amazing leaders at Redemption Fellowship and it is a joy to serve with them. We will be taking a team of twelve people this year to serve in VBS.

Pastor Jordan Branch has invited us to serve with Calvary Lakewood Church this summer as they continue to build spiritual roads into the lives of the people in the Lakewood Community of Denver. Their goal is to make Jesus non-ignorable in their community. We have the great opportunity to follow the lead of Calvary to lift up the name of Christ in Lakewood, CO.
July 7–17, 2016
Our missionary partners, Ted & Beverly Holmes, following the lead of Jonaz, their pastor, are reaching people through teaching English classes and local church community groups through out the week. Each year these groups culminate in what their church calls "Family Camp." Kids bring their parents and, as family units, they retreat together into the mountains. The Holmes continually see people come to Christ through this strategic outreach!
July 15–August 1, 2016
Serving under the direction of church planter/pastor Samson Kisia and his team, we will conduct evangelistic visits in a designated region of Tanzania asking the Lord to plant churches with new believers in this area. Samson’s team has assessed these areas, their needs and prospective leaders and our teams will follow his lead in serving these areas. The second week will include medical clinics in the identified areas and discipleship training for all of the new and existing pastors and local church leaders. We need people who feel called to serve in the areas of evangelism, leader training, patient care, nursing and pharmacy.
