Missions

Psalm 67:1-3 - May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations.  Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!

 

MBC Missions exists to worship God by making Him known, building disciples, and cultivating community throughout the world!


MBC's "Church to Church" partner is in Bolivia (Monte de Sion)

The “Church to Church” program partners U.S. congregations with churches in the world's poorest communities. Launched at the Willow Creek Association's 2009 Leadership Summit, the goal of this partnership is to bridge the divide between wealthier churches in the U.S. that are passionate about serving the poor and churches in the poorest communities around the world.

Today, those living in extreme poverty account for almost one fifth of the world's population, or 1.1 billion people. This staggering number of people includes nearly 600 million children whose families earn less than $1 per day.


Compassion International

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Recognizing that poverty is more than a lack of money, Compassion works holistically through local churches to address the individual physical, economic, educational and spiritual needs of children - enabling them to thrive, not just survive.


Gurage Bible College

Gurage Bible College in Emdibir, Ethiopia an interdenominational training opportunity in the heartland of the Gurage tribe of SW Ethiopia. They train Ethiopian pastors to serve in churches as pastors, evangelists and youth workers among the Gurage Tribe.

Out of 67 graduates, 66 are working as evangelists and youth workers among the Gurage tribe, this includes 7 women. School costs $900.00 per year. MBC has been involved with reaching the Gurage tribe with the gospel for 47 years now. They were a former unreached people group in Ethiopia. If interested in contributing to the school or to scholarships for the students contact Jo-Ann Brant at: joann.brant@gmail.com
