mill city missions

Be part of a history-making mission opportunity! We have the privilege of joining Mill City Baptist Church to help rebuild and reestablish their gospel witness in Oregon after the devastation of fires in 2020. Weeks 1-3 are full, and we still need volunteers for weeks 4-9. Even if you can’t physically be part of a team, click below to find out how you can still be involved.
