Trinity has always had a strong commitment to missions. In our effort to obey Christ’s command to go into the world and make disciples of all nations, we have undertaken financial support for missionary families and retired missionaries. Some serve in Africa, Asia, and Europe. Others, in the U.S., are involved in college campus ministries, urban ministries, church planting, supportive and administrative work, radio, camp, and education. Additionally, the ABC Scholarship Fund provides grants to missionary children of college age.
Missionary letters are published in our church bulletin and website, which acquaints the congregation with the ongoing work and prayer needs of our missionaries. Periodically missionary families visit Trinity, giving live reports, and stirring interest and desire for future contact in the exchange of e-mail and prayer concerns.
Members of Trinity have been encouraged to undertake short-term mission trips. As a result, Trinity members have gone in the name of Christ to India, Ethiopia, Congo, Thailand, Jamaica, Poland, Guatemala and Mongolia. Adults and youth, men and women, have come back spiritually enriched and more enthusiastic about sharing Christ’s love and salvation. Others have found opportunities to be involved in inner-city outreach through various social services.
Our goal is to make missions alive and vital to our church family, trusting that many more will become involved in local and short-term opportunities.
