Serving Those in Need
The Missions Committee continues to have a goal of supporting you in your personal mission in the service of our Lord. Please continue to bring your ideas and ask for our help and support as you live out your own calling before the Lord. The Mission Committee’s emphasis is to provide support for local, national and international missions. The 2016 Committee expenditures are set forth in the annual financial documents.
We have a long history of reaching out through Missions. Through Mission To The World, we have sent teams and individuals as far away as Peru, Honduras, Belize, Africa, China and as close as Pitcairn PA, Fairmont WV, and Portsmouth OH.
We have supported local missions currently and in the past through The Pittsburgh Project, Crossroads Pregnancy Center, The Harbor, and missionaries on foreign soil in Haiti, Morocco, East Asia and India. We also partner with Young Life, Coalition for Christian Outreach, Reformed University Ministries, Covenant Theological Seminary and Covenant College. If you have any questions about our Vision for Missions at New Covenant, please contact one of the Elders.
