International Outreach

"To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map."

A Great Commission

Each week we conclude our worship gathering with, “you are sent”. That is our reminder to one another that the gospel is never intended to stay just with us. Jesus told his disciples to take the great hope of the gospel all the way to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:18-20), and each generation of believers has sought to advance that mission for the past 2,000 years. This is our time. With the joy and power the gospel gives us, Mercy Church is committed to taking the gospel to people groups who have never heard it.

Go Short-Term

Mercy Church believes that God’s plan for taking the gospel to the ends of the earth will be carried out through healthy local churches. That’s why our short-term trips are sent to serve alongside strategic church planters and long-term missionary partners both here in the US and around the world. The gospel propels us to go to the nations, and we believe that these short-term trips are one of the best ways for you to experience how God is working all over the world and grow as a disciple of Jesus. You, your friends, or even your community group can pick a trip and apply today!
