Missions

Sierra Leone Village

One of the purposes of the church is to be "the hands and feet of Christ." In other words, we believe we are called to reach out to people with the love of Christ. This means meeting people's physical needs as well as sharing the Gospel of Jesus. Jesus sought to do both, so we follow His example. Whether in our community, country, or all around the world, we seek to share the love of Jesus through: international missions, national missions, local missions, and supporting missionaries.

On the international level, the Iowa/Minnessota District is participating in a 3-year project in Sierra Leone, called the Sierra Leone Village Partnership Project. This project will impact Sierra Leone in as little as three years, by:

Year 1: Planting a pineapple farm

Year 2: Digging a fresh water well

Year 3: Building a church!

For more information on how to be a part of this endeavor, contact the IA/MN District Missions Director, Pastor Kirk Statler at kirk@crhillside.com.
