At NPC, the purpose of missions is to promote, encourage and support outreach aimed at bringing others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Over the years, Noelridge Park Church has supported global and local missions. Our desire is to help missionaries to fulfill their calling to preach the Gospel to all nations (Mark 16:15).
The mission’s support program at NPC is diverse: two Associations, an Orphanage, a Bible Camp, eleven full-time missionary families and/or individuals working with eight mission organizations in 7 countries, and four local ministries.
The Mission’s Team meets every 4th. Tuesday of the month, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM with the purpose of:
- reading letters, newsletters, and e-mails from the mission field;
- sending out cards and updates;
- praying for missionaries, their families, and their work (III John 5-8)
Missionaries we support plant churches, care for children in orphanages , teach English on foreign schools campuses, provide school supplies, warm clothing and blankets to remote mountain’s villages, and work to restore Native American families affected by alcohol and drug addiction. We also support missionaries who have served overseas, have returned to the States and currently are teaching and training young man and woman to be sent out.
