• Connect with Purpose Church      

International Missions

A large part of what we do at Purpose Church involves reaching the “ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) with the good news of the Kingdom of God. Through our International missionaries and partners, thousands come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Each year many from Purpose go overseas to share the gospel through Short Term mission teams. The opportunity to get involved in this important task, of seeing the nations come to Christ, is readily available at Purpose Church. One of our key concerns internationally is to see workers go to areas where the need is greatest, such as in the Islamic world. If God is calling you to go, let us help you get there.
