Jesus calls each of us to follow Him, to be changed by Him, and to be about His mission – reconciling a lost world to God through Christ Jesus. This is our mission. We do this, not of our own power, but through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. We do this wherever we go – with our neighbors in our community, as we travel throughout this country, and as we leave our borders to take the message of the Gospel to distant lands. One Mission – yours, mine, ours – every day, every where.
One Mission Gatherings are monthly celebrations of how God is using our church to impact lives locally, nationally, and globally. During these events, we will bring you up-to-date on all our Mission Partners as well as hear from fellow church members who have recently returned from short and long-term mission trips. Join us as we encourage each other to live out the Great Commission – whether that’s in your home, at work, in your community, or across the globe.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
CAMP was established by Dr. Ahdee Wayezi, a Myanmar national who has extensive biblical training in the United States. Myanmar is a predominantly Buddhist country, formerly known as Burma. CAMP spreads the gospel of Jesus Christ through not only translating biblical doctrine from English to the Burmese and Lisu languages, but it also provides discipleship training and lends support to area churches. In addition, CAMP also distributes Christ-based materials to churches in China, Thailand, and Myanmar.
Ahdee teaches at the Myitkyina Christian Seminary to train men and women in biblical doctrine, equipping them to become church pastors, evangelists, scholars, and leaders.
Care India provides food, education, clean water, and medical resources to rural villagers in southern India. It is not only passionate about training and making disciples, but their goal is to send equipped pastors out to regions of India that have never heard the Gospel!
Save The Girl is just one of the many programs under Care India’s ministry. This ministry provides the funding to educate young girls who are in danger of being sold into human trafficking.
PV John founded Care India in 1990 as a way to reach people living in rural southern India. Today, Care India is comprised of a boy’s and girl’s home, Save The Girl, Feed A Widow, building wells for communities, hospital care, educational centers, and a tailoring school.
Fishers of Men is a Christ-centered ministry that provides safe, clean, Christ-centered transitional housing for men dealing with homelessness, alcoholism, imprisonment, and drug addiction. The ministry’s purpose is to provide spiritual, practical, financial, emotional, and social guidance for the men who live in the homes.
The Fishers of Men ministries began in 2011 when an individual was released from prison with no place to go. A house was purchased for him to live in. Today, Fishers of Men provides housing for more than 30 men in the city of Quincy,IL. Their dream is to expand into all the cities where a Crossing campus exists!
“Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”
FNC Uganda is a Christ-centered ministry based in one of Kampala, Uganda’s largest slums, called Kamwokya. This ministry shares the good news of Jesus Christ through four key areas:
- The Fire Place: Since March of 2012, FNC Uganda gathers together on Friday evenings to create an environment of acceptance through Christ-centered acts of worship. This gathering allows people of all ages and all backgrounds to come together as a community.
- Joy Club International: The FNC Uganda base camp is surrounded with impoverished children of all ages who are yearning for the love of Jesus. This ministry meets every Wednesday and is focused to create an environment where the children of Kamwokya are loved and accepted. Joy Club International accomplishes this through songs of praise, Bible lessons, crafts, snacks, and small group time.
- World Changers: World Changers is FNC’s teen ministry. This group is led by three amazing young men, Derick, Charles and Quinto. All three have been with us from the beginning, saw the need for “their” age and went for it. The World Changers meet every Saturday evening.
- FNC Academy: The FNC Academy began with a simple letter written by an underprivileged little girl named Christine. Through her boldness and written words, God made it clear we needed to begin not only to teach the love of Jesus, but to show the love by educating, clothing and feeding His children.
Ivory Coast Christian Mission exists simply to train leaders in the area of discipleship, so that they can go out and train more leaders. This is accomplished by partnering with the Christian Leadership Training Institute, which conducts about 45 training classes every year. Over 350 students are trained each year in multiple countries and multiple languages across Africa.
Ivory Coast Christian Mission helps in facilitating the training courses as well as helps to provide the materials needed for a leader to disciple his people. Churches and communities grow deeper in God’s word through this training. Ultimately, eternal lives are being saved.
Ivory Coast Christian Mission began in 1976 in western Africa (Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Nigeria), but has also trained leaders in Ethiopia, The Philippines, Mexico, and India.
The needs of our city are deeply overwhelming. We are hyper-segregated racially, economically, physically, and even spiritually. We have denigrated into patterns of anger, green, and poverty. The need is great and that is why LOVEtheLOU exists. We are a movement of restoration for Saint Louis. As an organization, we know the need and believe that God has given us a vision for seeing the city restored to Him. We feel called to connect the needs of the city with an abundance of resources and the people who have the desire to serve.
The Well House is a Christ-centered ministry that guides women who have been recently released from prison to freedom in Christ. The one-on-one discipleship, bible study, and small groups help the women build a God-based foundation and life skills.
The Well House began in 1996 as a prison ministry for the Adams County Jail with a team of 12-14 women going in pairs each Saturday morning to conduct bible studies, distribute bibles, and to pray over the women still incarcerated.
Today, the jail ministry continues, along with a home to care for and disciple the women as they leave the prison. The hope is to give them the necessary tools to make it possible for them to lead productive lives in our community with Jesus in their hearts.
