At One Heart, we believe that every Christian is called to be a missionary. In fact, as Christ’s followers, we are missionaries by design simply because we are indwelt by His Spirit, and His heart compels us to complete the work He started. As His HEART (Hands Extended and Revealing Truth), Christ is relying on us to reach the world around us – locally and globally – with the truth of His saving grace. As a Missions Ministry, we are committed to pursuing Christ’s passion for reaching the lost and ministering to those in need. Currently, our church partners with several local ministries and our members support them through service projects, volunteer time and material donations. In addition, we have strong relationships with churches in several countries including Romania, Ukraine, Argentina, Guatemala, Tanzania, Honduras and Italy. One Heart members make yearly short-term trips to these locations and God continues to move in mighty ways! For more information about missions opportunities, contact Chester Whisonant, Missions Pastor.
