Missions

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Matthew 24:14

Uptown’s Missions Committee is responsible for coordinating and overseeing all of the church’s missions endeavors in order to further Uptown’s vision of sharing Christ across the US and around the world. The committee is made up of a variety of individuals from Uptown who are united by a common thread: a passion for global missions. The committee joyfully serves the church body by stewarding its financial resources, identifying and recommending support candidates, caring for full-time missionaries both in the field and during furlough, and fostering missions awareness within the congregation through prayer, coordination with life groups and church members who are interested in missions, and short-term trips. The committee is an integral part of Uptown’s broader role in advancing the kingdom and propagating Christ-centered churches in the US and around the world.
