Ministry Coordinator: Kristen Raine
Missions is the “Heart Beat” of Sharptown Church. From supporting foreign missionaries from Africa to Guatemala with financial support as well as prayer, to impacting the lives of local people assisting with Real Hope and Family Promise. We have sent short term teams to China to teach, and to Argentina, Guatemala and Haiti to build. Our youth have spent weeks in the summer working in Mexico, Kentucky, and Ireland helping to build the lives of other by sharing the Gospel of Christ.
Every few weeks, a member of the church will speak in Sunday Worship about a dramatic experience they had while participating in short-term missions. Sometimes the speaker has a humorous story or two to share about their experience, but without exception, every person who has been on a trip will tell you that it changed their life forever.
When hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast area, within in weeks we started the process of mobilizing teams to help clean out and gut homes. Many lives have been impacted in the helping process. You can see lives changed and impacted for Christ with the families and people of New Orleans and to our own team members. You could watch the hand of God as he led us to those that needed the help. We watched as team members reached out and gave both physically and spiritually to those in need.
A stated objective of our community is to reach out through the love of Christ to our town, county, nation, and world. If your heart beats for the world, please contact us about participating in this ministry.
It is our prayer that God will use us to be His witnesses in …
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)
