"The Great Commission" Matthew 28:19-20
Here at NLCC we take Jesus' command to go into all the world with the Gospel seriously. Therefore, we support a number of missions through our missions outreach budget. Currently we are supporting several missions located in the U.S. as well as missions in: China, Haiti, Brazil and Germany.
We also encourage our congregation to get involved with short-term missions. Members of our congregation have served in: Mexico, South America, Haiti, Africa, Asia and various locations in the U.S. and Europe. Short-term mission trips are sometimes initiated by NLCC and, at other times, by individuals or families who decide to go on their own.
One of our goals for the future is to expand our missions outreach both here and abroad by hiring a missions/outreach staff member. In the meantime, if you have questions or are interested in learning more, you can contact the Missions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
