In obedience to the great commission, some are called to go. Some are called to send. We believe that the most effective way of advancing the kingdom of Christ is through planting local churches in strategic locations and communities. Tim Keller, of Redeemer Presbyterian, has written, “The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for 1) the numerical growth of the Body of Christ in any city, and 2) the continual corporate renewal and revival of the existing churches in a city. Nothing else…will have the consistent impact of dynamic, extensive church planting.”
Currently, we prayerfully and financially support four new American church plants and three church planters in foreign countries. Below you will find links to the four US church plants we support. At this time, we cannot link our foreign church planters due to safety concerns.

Irmo Presbyterian Mission — Irmo, SC

In addition to prayerful and financial support of these church plants, we continue to find new opportunities for short-term mission trips and service in our community and abroad. At present, our main short-term trips are located in the Appalachia Mission in Jonesville, VA and Orange Walk City, Belize.
