MISSION TRIPS


At New Community Church it is our desire to extend God’s new creation within our community and throughout the world so that God is glorified and the Great Commission is fulfilled. This is accomplished by reshaping the world, working within areas of influence, as well as building local, regional, and global partnerships.


Global initiatives support partnerships with organizations that plant churches throughout the international 10-40 window with a focus of spreading the Gospel within the top four unreached populations in the world.  For example, Pioneers in Africa and mission trips.

Cross cultural initiatives are partnerships with organizations that have cultural differences from typical NCC members. Through partnering together, learning and growth can occur through relationships as serving is done together. NCC partners with local ministries: Imani Christian Academy, Pine Valley Bible Camp, and Urban Impact.

Local initiatives through servant evangelism puts faith into action in our community through serving others with no strings attached as seen in Compassion Day, Baby Bottle Campaign for Women's Choice Network, and Orphan Care.


Local Mission Partners

New Community Church partners with local organizations to support them with our time, talents, and financial resources throughout each year. Our church holds periodic work days where our people help complete projects or simply spruce up the grounds, facilitate food drives, and other opportunities.

  • Pine Valley Camp

    Pine Valley Camp is a place where urban and at-risk children can experience real life change in a safe and family-like atmosphere of camp. Away from the chaos of the city, surrounded by the beauty of God's creation and the unconditional love of the staff, campers are introduced to a Heavenly Father who desires to heal their broken hearts.

  • Urban Impact

    Urban Impact builds positive relationships with the community on the Northside by holistically helping to transform the lives of at-risk children, youth, and their families one person, one family, one block at a time who, in turn, make a powerful impact locally and globally for Jesus Christ.

Compassion Ministries

Compassion Ministries provides opportunities to reach outside our church walls and serve our local community in order to show the love of Christ in practical, meaningful ways to those in need.

  • Compassion Day

    When we organize Compassion Days, we unite as a church body to show the love of Christ in practical ways with no strings attached. During these days of service, we go out in teams of 8 - 15 people into our community and perform service projects for organizations, our mission partners, and the under privileged. Some of the projects in the past have included repairs, landscaping, visiting with elderly, collecting furniture, handing out water bottles in North Park, preparing meals, and even washing fire trucks.

  • Orphan Care

    The mission of Living 1:27-New Community's Orphan Care Ministry, is to guide and serve individuals who have been touched by the biblical call to care for orphans in their distress. In carrying out our mission, our desire is to educate, connect, and encourage individuals and families who have an interest in “caring” for orphans in need. While often associated primarily with adoption, orphan care extends beyond this traditional scope and includes foster care, mentorship, financial sponsorship, prayer, advocacy, and much more.

Ghana

August 20 - September 3, 2016

NCC is celebrating 10 years of supporting Pioneers Africa in Ghana. Did you know...in 2004 there was an unmanned health clinic with no doctor anywhere for 50-100 miles? NCC funded the first doctor; that clinic now runs on its own with government funding. Thousands of villagers have had access to healthcare to heal their bodies, which then opened doors for the Pioneers' missionaries to bring the gospel to heal their spirits. The Pioneers' missionaries are now working on building a water packaging facility with NCC's help so they can earn funds to become more self-sufficient and reach even more villagers.

Haiti

July 16 - 22, 2017

Student Ministries has lead a mission trip of about 25 students and adults to EBAC orphanage in Cap Haitian, Haiti each of the past several years. If you are interested in learning more, contact Adam at AJackley@NCCinWexford.org.

Nicaragua

NCC partners together with Agros International to develop a long-term relationship with a community in Nicaragua called Tierra Nueva. This relationship began by sending a leader team down to Nicaragua in 2012. Since then, NCC has sent mission teams each year into this community to continue to develop this relationship. This annual trip is safe for families because the focus is in building relationships and fostering community between our church and this community. It is a blessing to see the people of Tierra Nueva working their families out of poverty by becoming land owners in Nicaragua.

NCC is partnering with Agros International for two projected trips to Nicaragua in 2017.

The first trip was March 26 - 31. Please pray for the second trip as they travel soon.

God uses missions to...

transform people while laboring together to expand God’s new creation as far away as Thailand, and as close to home as our offices, neighborhoods and families.
