Global Impact

 
 
 
At Mountain Life Church we envision a world of hope where people and communities thrive through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We believe in focusing our global outreach efforts for a lasting impact in God’s Kingdom by building relationships where people and communities experience the reconciliation of broken relationships, restoration of hope and health, and the dignity of following Jesus.
 
At any given time we support 10-12 individual missionaries globally and maintain several strategic partnerships in Haiti, Indonesia, South Africa and Nepal. We actively encourage our congregation to be the hands and feet of Jesus so that, “…they may have life and have it to the full.” Take a look below to learn more about how you can get involved globally, how you can be part of our Global Impact Team or to learn about and pray for our global partners.
 
Another way that we are reaching out with the love of Christ is through our partnership with ReachGlobal Crisis Response. Learn more about our Crisis Response Team at the bottom of this page.

Global Impact Team

The Global Impact Team is a group of lay leaders tasked with managing, growing and nurturing Mountain Life’s Global Impact Ministry. The purpose of Mountain Life Church’s Global Impact is to effectively share the Gospel of Christ with the people of our world through compassionate and wholistic ministry changing the lives of those served and those serving. We accomplish our purpose through strategic partnerships with missionary organizations, individual missionaries and church organizations around the globe. The Global Impact Team meets monthly and our meetings are open to all who call Mountain Life Church their home.
 
We offer members of the Mountain Life Church community the opportunity to enter service to develop a passion for God and a compassion for people. We strive to provide accessibility to the mission field for a wide spectrum of the Mountain Life Church family – adults, students, kids and families through short-term mission trips. We want to leverage our spiritual and physical gifts and talents to have a true Kingdom impact.

Crisis Response Team

The Crisis Response Team at Mountain Life Church develops, empowers and releases the body of Christ to share His love in times of crisis. When disaster strikes in North America, this team responds and ministers immediately to the needs of those affected by the disaster and to bring the Gospel to those looking for answers. Based on each community’s specific needs following a disaster, the Crisis Response Team may be involved in debris removal, gutting and rebuilding homes, delivering relief supplies, support and care for churches and people impacted by the disaster, prayer, and investing in the lives of homeowners and their neighbors. The Crisis Response Team is a vital ministry, bringing the hope of the Gospel to those who have lost so much.
 
Mountain Life Church has partnered with EFCA ReachGlobal (the International Mission of the Evangelical Free Church of America) to be one of the 25/25 churches with 25 people trained and willing to respond following a crisis in North America. The team meets monthly for training and team-building.
