“Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18a”
The vision of the Stuart Heights missions program is to win people to Jesus by meeting their spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical needs through multi-faceted programs. We are committed to representing Christ in the world on a local and global scale and we work to clearly and effectively communicate the gospel, make disciples of Jesus Christ, and demonstrate the love of God through the direct involvement of our members as well as pooling our resources with other organizations. We follow the commands of our Lord Jesus to provide for the poor, minister to the oppressed, and encourage the disheartened.
Our mission support is 13% of our undesignated receipts and special offerings. Five percent of our undesignated receipts and special offerings go to the SBC Cooperative Program, which includes things such as helping provide for individual missionaries to serve as they are called to the mission field and supporting missionaries and outreaches of the North American Mission Board and International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. We praise God for the opportunity to serve Jesus by taking part in His Great Commission.
Eight percent of our undesignated receipts and special offerings go to local and church-related missions, which includes things such as HaCoBACare, the Biblical Counseling Center, Interfaith Homeless Network, mission trips sponsored by SHBC to Honduras, Choices, Student Venture, disaster relief, our local food bank, and many others.
Through missions we share the love and grace of God in Christ Jesus in some of the most real and tangible ways, and in so doing, we ourselves also experience Christ in new and profound ways. If you are aware of any needs in our community or want to get involved in missions with us, please contact the church office at 877-2643, or email us to let us know.
