Global Ministries

We believe in a global commission. This means investing in Kingdom efforts around the world by praying, giving, and going.

 

Our Purpose

We actively participate in making disciples of Jesus as he instructed in Matthew 28:18-20, often referred to as “the great commission.”

Our Treasure

Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  (Matthew 6:21)  One fifth of MCC’s annual budget is allocated to missions, engaging our hearts in 15 ministry partnerships locally and internationally.

Our Theme

Around the corner and around the world is the theme of MCC’s missions efforts.  We take our cue from Jesus’ instruction to his first disciples to be his witnesses to people of same culture nearby (Jerusalem), same culture distant (all Judea), different culture nearby (Samaria), and different culture distant (the end of the earth).  (Acts 1:8)

Around the corner

Our city, including areas within a few blocks of the church, has the problems of many urban areas. As a result, we support four Greater Cincinnati ministries focused on families, health services, employment and city transformation.

Around the world

We believe Jesus has privileged us with a part of His plan to reach the world with his redeeming, reconciling love. We support ministries operating in seven countries focused on children, church planting & strengthening, discipleship, and unreached people groups.

Our Aim

Our aim is to engage people of all ages and spiritual maturities in missions—praying for missionaries and ministries, connecting with missionaries at home and abroad, serving missionaries on the basis of spiritual gift, and participating in missions activities of short or long-term duration.
