together we care!

In this season of COVID-19 and all of its implications on our lives, we are seeking to cultivate authentic and organic mission. This season may not be marked by your participation in a short term mission trip, but it is no less missional! TOGETHER through our personal Gospel sharing, life group outreach, and generous giving, MISSION IS EXPANDING!

GLOBAL MISSIONS

ICC is passionately interested, invested and involved in global missions. We believe God desires to be known and worshipped in all the earth. We were created and commanded to participate in this purpose. Because of this, we desire to sacrificially pray, give, and go into the world so that everyone may have opportunity to experience the joy we know in Jesus.  Even though our ability has been limited to jump on a plane and fly around the world to be physically present in God's global work, His mission has not slowed.  We still have the opportunity in this season to serve our partners and the work of global missions around the world.

Below, discover how you can be involved in ICC global missions this year.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Operation Christmas Child partners with pastors and churches around the world to take these gifts and the Gospel to children who have never heard of Jesus.  Not only that, but they have year long training and discipleship, leading to new believers who grow into mature disciples of Jesus, leading to the transformation of friends, families, and whole communities!  


By packing a shoebox, you are participating in God’s global mission, fulfilling the Great Commission as children and families around the world transformed by the Gospel, and taking part in equipping churches around the world in outreach and church planting.  This is something that the whole family can help with!  Parents, packing an Operation Christmas Child box is a wonderful way to teach your children about giving, the Gospel, and the work of global missions.

GIVE

Every year, we commit 25% of our church's general budget to missionaries, missions resources, and ministries outside of our church. In 2020, ICC will give over $218,000 towards missions and mission-related causes.  


We encourage you to ask God how He would have you participate in global missions through giving toward ICC.  Every time you give, you invest in gospel advancement and meeting needs around the world. 


You can give online simply and securely by clicking here.

GO

We ask every member of our church to consider going on one of our short-term global mission trips for ministry this year. Because we desire all short-term trips to align with established gospel visions, movements, and strategies, all trips represent long-term partnerships supporting specific requests of national workers or local missionaries.  Also, because we believe in God's purposes through the local church, all trips are aimed at beginning or supporting gospel-saturated church planting movements. 


Financial scholarships are available.  In addition, a special foundation has been established to ensure students can participate.  For more information on scholarships, contact us.
