Welcome to the Missions and Outreach web page. It is our desire to obey Christ’s Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all nations.” We do this locally by working in partnership with many local organizations, through financial support and volunteer efforts. We also support several national ministries. NEPC supports its International Staff around the world, as well as its Domestic Staff in the U.S.
I want to thank you for your many nice clothes and shoes you gave us last year so that we could fill two 40 ft containers of humanitarian aid, one to Romania and the other to Liberia. You have blessed so many people with these timely gifts. This also helped us to move quickly out of our warehouse. Pictures of the loading and some distribution are in our newsletter, Christian Ministries International 2017.

Our Mission Statement has two “value” components:
- To spread the Gospel message and make Christ known – by supporting missionaries and ministries that spread the Gospel and help integrate new converts into the local body of Christ.
- To advance the spiritual growth of NEPC members – by providing ways to equip, encourage, and engage our members in missions and outreach opportunities.
We believe NEPC has the potential to be a “sending” church and take a more active part in reaching many peoples and nations for Christ. It is our desire to glorify God through increased participation by NEPC members for the growth and wellbeing of our Lord’s Kingdom.
We believe the Bible teaches that every believer has a calling to be part of the mission of the body of Christ, and that this calling is carried out through works of service according to the gifts and enablement of the Holy Spirit given to every believer. Listed below are some of the opportunities for you to get involved.
Mission Trips are taken annually to different parts of the globe. Many mission trip team members choose to go year after year once they have experienced the blessings such a trip brings. Check out our mission trips section. Is God tugging on your heart to join us this year?
Volunteer Opportunities are available with several local ministries. Find out more on our Ministry Partnerships page.
Christmas Outreach is a mercy ministry that provides a Christmas meal and gifts to selected needy families in the Northeast area of Columbia. NEPC members can participate by purchasing gifts for family members, making a financial contribution and/or assisting in the actual outreach which is held at NEPC on a Saturday close to Christmas.
Missions and Outreach events are held throughout the year to help our congregation connect more personally with our missionaries and ministries, to encourage awareness and support of missions in general, and to highlight future mission trips and ministry opportunities.
