Matthew 28:16-20

The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Unleashed Outreach

The Mission

The Mission Team at First Church of Christ with permission from the Board of Elders and Deacons at the March 10, 2024, board meeting has decided to replace the rotating mission slot, normally dedicated to one new mission each year, with a new initiative which will be called Unleashed Outreach.

Unleashed Outreach is answering the call for members of First Church of Christ, as outlined in the book of Acts, to reach out to people in our communities with their own outreach projects in which they will actively participate.

When a member of the congregation has a project or mission that will have a positive impact on those in our communities while still demonstrating the compassion and love Christ; The Mission Team will be able to assist with their project with a financial donation of $200.00 along with promotions, collection of other donations, and prayer. There is room in the annual budget for 12 separate ministries or projects each year. Each project or mission would be eligible once every twelve months with a completed registration form


  • The project or mission must be an ongoing ministry outside First Church of Christ walls, within our area communities or within your sphere of reach.
  • You must be directly and actively and physically involved in your ministry project.
  • Your ministry or project does not have to be faith based but it must have a direct positive impact on the individuals or community served by your ministry or project.
  • You must complete the Unleashed Outreach registration form so that the members of the Mission Team and First Church of Christ have a better understanding of your project or mission’s purpose and goals. This will help us better support you and what God has put on your heart.
  • Be BOLD in FAITH and unleash your outreach.
