Mission Trips

God has enabled NCC to be involved with various organizations and have sent many mission teams to share the love of Christ.

  • Appalachia

    NCC serves alongside Beth Luffy and her family, who serve the people of their community in Appalachia, West Virginia through their ministry center, More Grace Outreach. Beth is continuing to minister and meet the needs of vulnerable families. Their most pressing need in continuing that ministry is financial support. If you are interested in helping them, please visit their website. Contact Joel Friend at jfriend@nccinwexford.org with any questions.

  • 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.  

    The last trip was the spring of 2018, and since then trips have been put on hold due to COVID-19.  A potential 2022 trip is being explored and more information will be communicated soon.

  • Ghana

    In 2016, NCC celebrated 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. People are 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.

    In April 2019, a small team traveled to Ghana to deliver book bags filled with commentaries and to teach 40 pastor/missionary leaders. Watch the video to hear from some of the Ghana leaders share their appreciation.

  • Haiti

    Student Ministries have lead mission trips of about 25 students and adults to EBAC orphanage in Cap Haitian, Haiti. NCC used to travel to Haiti every two years.  At this time, it isn't safe to travel there.

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.

Appalachia 2023

From June 11-16, 2023 NCC is going to Appalachia in West Virginia for a Missions Trip to serve families in that area. 

To understand the kind of impact that you and your mission team can have, take a look at what the team accomplished in 2022 when we served a foster mom in Fairmont, West Virginia. We were able to be a blessing to her and the kids under her care by renovating her kitchen and cleaning up her home, but she was not the only one who was blessed from this mission. 


In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

Matthew 5:16

When NCC was born twenty years ago, a core value was then. and still is missions. God calls us to be the salt and light of the world and to fulfill the Great Commission, commands which NCC takes very seriously. Since the beginning, we have made an intentional and strategic effort to spread the Gospel to the most unreached populations in the world, bringing Christ’s love and hope to the lost and the least. Jesus also told us to let our light shine so that God may be glorified.

We are excited to share what is happening with our mission partners, other mission-focused activities at the church, and how you can become involved. 

To God be the Glory!

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.
