Missions

There is an African proverb that says, "If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together." When it comes to engaging the world with the gospel, planting churches and serving the needy in Jesus' name, it is clear the destination is far. We have a long way to go. So we must go together. To go the distance, we partner with a host of other churches, community ministries and organizations, and mission agengies to equip Concord to go proclaim the gospel and make disciples where Jesus sends us. What a gift that we get to journey side by side in this eternal work. Equipping Concord to go proclaim the gospel and make disciples where Jesus sends us! If you are ready to find your place, please contact us through one of the ways listed below!
