If there were one word to describe the ministry heartbeat of CVBC it would be MISSIONS. In the past decade, hundreds of people have been involved in mission projects and activities locally and around the world from CVBC. In any given year, CVBC sends anywhere from two to five teams on USA and International projects, plus many more local ministry projects that will involve all age groups in our church family. The command that Jesus gave us in Acts 1:8 to go into the entire world and proclaim His Gospel is what drives our missions effort. The focus of our missions is to see changed spiritual lives and grow the Kingdom of God.
Every year at CVBC we do several local missions projects in the city of Tahlequah and Fort Gibson. A couple of our biggest local projects are our “Trunk or Treat" event and our "Crescent Valley Feeds Tahlequah" project. Each year during around Halloween CVBC reserves Norris Park right here in Tahlequah and hosts a Free “Trunk or Treat” event. Families are encouraged to sign up and participate in decorating their vehicles or “Trunks” this give us an opportunity to show our community the love of Christ and share the Gospel with them. Then, each year around Thanksgiving our whole church takes a Sunday morning and afternoon to provide the city of Tahlequah with a free Thanksgiving meal, and we call it, "Crescent Valley Feeds Tahlequah." Once again, it's another opportunity to show our community that we care about them and to share the Gospel.
Not only are we committed to missions and outreach in our local community, but we are also committed to taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world. Over the past decade we have sent multiple teams all across the USA and into foreign countries to share the Gospel. In many of the places we have sent mission teams we have established partnerships for extended periods of time. In recent years, we have sent teams, families, and individuals to St. Louis, MO, Cincinnati, OH, the Czech Republic, and to West Africa. It's our prayer that every member of CVBC is actively involved in our mission work, whether it be here locally or abroad. There are so many different opportunities and ways to serve and share your faith. Keep checking our website for upcoming missions opportunities!
