MISSIONS AND OUTREACH

Missions and Outreach Ministry

The Great Commission, Matthew 28, 17-20
“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

There’s a calling for believers to step out into the mission field in some form whether it is internationally with our global partners or in our own backyard with our local ministries. Here at LifePoint our role is to support you in that calling. As such we offer opportunities to serve and lead in the areas known as our Four Pillars:

  • Global/Local Missions & Outreach
  • Community
  • Teaching
  • Discipleship

If you would like more information about serving or leading a local or global mission, contact us at Missions@LifePointAZ.com

Haiti- Haiti Christian Ministries

Haitian Christian Ministries (HCM) exists to bring transformation to Northern Haiti through the message of Jesus Christ.  The belief is that the hope found in Christ alone has the power to transform lives, families, and communities…. even a nation. Despite all the chaos, corruption, fear, and lack of resources, HCM is still building church plants in a voodoo infested nation, sharing the gospel, and being the light of Jesus wherever they go. The HCM board of directors upholds Pastor Bobanoit Lucceus (Pastor Bob) and his wife Rose so that they can continue to minister to the people in all of their communities.

Belize- Kenneth Welch

Pastor Kenneth Welch and his family oversee and Pastors two churches in Belize. One is in Belize City, Port Loyola Calvary Chapel, and the second is located in the remote Village of Gales Point Manatee, Galilee Gospel Chapel. Pastor Kenny was introduced to LifePoint Church through the lead Pastor of Living Streams Church, David Stockton. David spent a year in Belize to disciple and build up spiritual leaders to help with bringing the two churches back from being closed. Pastor Kenny is now the lead Pastor for both churches and work in partnership with LifePoint Church in continuing to grow disciples and build spiritual leaders in these communities. There is opportunity to serve in short-term mission trips and to support Pastor Kenny’s outreach efforts through the annual Christmas in Belize – Big Give Fundraiser.

My 360 Project- Mexico

My360Project provides needed shoes to children around the globe while offering sustainable jobs for artisans who craft the unique shoes. Washing the children’s feet opens a connection to the their heart. Jesus left us a beautiful example by washing His disciples’ feet. Yet even before He washed their feet, there was a woman who came to wash His. Servanthood is the key for a person to be released from poverty. LifePoint currently partners with My360 on missions to Mexico.

Local Partners

Compassion Connect Youth Mentoring

Our youth mentoring work began in 2011 as a result of the unfortunate discovery that many of the sex trafficking and exploration survivors we served had mothers and even grandmothers who had been exploited, and they feared the same fate for their children. As an organization focused on uniting Jesus followers to address significant community issues, we knew this was a huge opportunity for the Church to come alongside youth in vulnerable situations to prevent trafficking and offer not just physical freedom but the ultimate liberty found in Christ.

Arizona Reservation Ministry

We provide God’s ARMs around the San Carlos Apache Reservation. Those ARMs provide the shoulder for someone to cry on. The hands to pray, provide food, clothing, build a new home or remodel a broken one, help a child learn to rollerblade, baptize them, sort school items, stuff backpacks and Christmas stockings, serve food and pray over Apache pastors and their wives. We provide our ARMs, as well as our hearts as God leads, to come alongside the San Carlos Apache Nation so that they will know of God’s great love for them, and add their ARMs to this process as well.

Black Sheep Exodus Chapter

Our motorcycle ministry chapter serves the San Tan Valley/Florence area and its surrounding towns. We chose the name Exodus based on the book of the same name in the Bible where Moses leads God’s people out of bondage and into freedom. We find ourselves in a unique situation in the Exodus Chapter because there is no Harley Davidson dealership in our area. Therefore, our primary focus is serving and ministering to the American Legion Riders.

Youth Haven

Our mission is to provide life-changing, Christ-centered experiences for disadvantaged children. We do this through both on-site and off-site programs all year long. We love having the kids with us for our camps and retreats! And when they aren’t on site, we’re meeting their needs and sharing God’s love through care packages, letters and cards, mailed activities, a full online ministry, and more. All of this is provided to disadvantaged children free of charge.

As the the only soup kitchen in Pinal County, the Genesis Project is a 501(c)3 faith-based non-profit organisation. Genesis Project is a community-focused, volunteer-run, non-profit serving the hungry and homeless. We are supported and funded by community members, civic groups, and the faith community.
