Local Missions

VERITAS INITIATIVES

We believe the best thing we can do for our city is to put more passionate, mature, outward focused followers of Jesus in it. Our philosophy of local missions is first and foremost a disciple making one. We seek to train and equip people to live their lives in this community on mission as ambassadors for Christ spreading the gospel in both word and deed who happen to be employers and employees, parents and students, neighbors and friends. Our primary focus in local missions is the equipping of our people to live as everyday missionaries. We do this through two primary initiatives:

AMBASSADORS CLASS - COMING SOON

As Christians we are to be ambassadors for Christ, imploring others to be reconciled to God. The ambassadors class is 8 week study designed to equip people to live as ambassadors for Christ in our world. 

ADOPTION AND FOSTER CARE SUPPORT - COMING SOON

The best place for discipleship is the home, and the need for loving Christian homes for displaced children is great. We want to be a church that cultivates a growing community that meets this need.


STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

When it comes to local missions we also want to help rally and direct our people outside of their normal social circles to be a blessing to the under resourced in our community. We do this through our strategic partnerships. These are not Veritas ministries. Our strategic partnerships are other existing ministries in our community that we seek to advance through financial help and volunteer recruitment. As a church, we focus our partnerships within four categories: Inner-city youth, Refugees and Internationals (Coming Soon), The Unborn and Families (Coming Soon), and the Hungry.


MISSIONAL GRANTS - COMING SOON

As part of local missions, we also seek to encourage and bless the personal ministry endeavors of our people. We seek to do this through our Missional Grant Program. Through this program, we will provide funding and coaching to great ideas generated by our people to further the glory of God in our community.


NATIONAL MISSIONS

There are over 400 major universities across North America. Through the Salt Network, we pray we will see a thriving church and college ministry established in all of these major university centers. The Salt Network is working to see churches planted, communities strengthened, and Gospel witness extended to the ends of the earth. In particular, we strategically partner to plant churches in global university centers.
