Vision statement: The Outreach Team looks for ways that the congregation can engage with the local community and the community of believers globally.
Guiding Scripture: Acts 1:8- 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.
- To look for opportunities to love and serve our neighbors
- To, in consultation with the leadership team, discern which ministry partnerships the congregation pours its energy and resources into.
- To build sustainable relationships with local and global ministries
- To provide opportunities for the congregation to engage in both intentional and relational evangelism
