Our Philosophy on Missions:

The Summit Church in Green believes that it is not only important to get the life-changing message of Jesus Christ out to our own community (local missions), but also to places around the world (global missions). We certainly realize that it is not possible to support every single individual/church who is preaching the gospel, but our desire is to invest in a few ministries who are being faithful to God’s leading in their life.

How do we support our local and global missionaries? Our church must get involved in three ways – prayer support, financial support, and on-the-ground support. Prayer support involves asking God to accomplish much through the work of the missionary. Financial support is handled differently in every church, but here is how we will handle it. Ten percent of our monthly budget will be invested in local and global mission work. On-the-ground support means that as opportunities become available, we will send people from our church to invest time in each of the ministries we support.

We must do our part in getting the gospel out to every man, woman, and child!

Missionaries to the Republic of Ireland

We have been called to surrender our lives to serve the Lord full time. About four years ago we committed to saying "yes" to God and to be radically obedient to Him. We traded in what WE wanted for what He would have us to do. We were not placed on this earth to serve ourselves and to be "comfortable." We have committed to a life of faith and complete trust in God and His plans. We began to pray earnestly for direction. He led us to become missionaries. We will obey. He called us to the Republic of Ireland. We will obey.
