"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..."
To say missions is a vital part of the vision and heart of New Hope would be an understatement. Not only do we support 20 missionaries and organizations, we have also built three church buildings in Malawi, three in Tanzania, and one in Mozambique. Yes, we believe in the importance of being "feet on the ground" -- sending short-term teams to the areas our missionaries serve -- but we also consistently partner with our missionaries through prayer, with more than 60 people committed to lift up specific requests each week.
Pray. Give. Go. None of that is an option.
