Will you join us on our mission to be the church to the community?

Missions is one of our four priorities, and our strategy is inspired by the concentric effect described in Acts 1:8.

We will be on mission in our community, our region, our nation, and our world.

Mission Efforts

We pursue our mission to be and make other disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) as ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:19-20) in our church, homes, work, and play, through meeting needs and sharing the Gospel. We are on mission together by engaging in local events, initiatives, and projects, equipping church members in their positions of influence to carry the gospel, partnering with organizations, churches, and individuals here and abroad, going across the street to around the world, and sharing our resources as freely as God allows.

Mission Partnerships

Mission partnership at The Orchard Church is strategic. By recognizing organizations exist that are experts in specific fields in our community, region, nation, and world, we have an annual application and selection process in which we intentionally choose with whom we partner. Our levels of partnership are:

Strategic Partners

Strategic Partners are organizations and individuals with shared mission and vision in which we support with resources including prayer, people, training, mission trips, and finances.

Collaborative Partners

Collaborative Partners are for organizations or individuals that wish to partner for a specific or series of projects, initiatives and receive resources including prayer, people, and finances.

Sponsorship Partners

Sponsorship Partners are those organizations and individuals who receive support on as-needed and as-able basis for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission. Mission partnership applications the next year are due by August 15. For more information about applying for a mission partnership, please contact our office.

Mission Partners

While we have many Collaborative Partners and Sponsorships, we are honored to highlight these Strategic Partners and encourage you to check out their websites and join us as we join them on mission!
