Each year Mt. Zion commits to partnering with a number of mission agencies and projects in our community, nation, and world. We have a mission budget that is dedicated to supporting these opportunities as we seek to make Christ known to all peoples. In addition to the community missions we pursue as a church, here is a list of those partnerships we seek to support through giving, volunteering, and prayer. We also give 7% of our annual budget to the Cooperative Program to support missionaries worldwide.

MISSIONS MOBILIZATION - Mt. Zion provides scholarships to church members who are committed to international mission trips but would be hindered from serving due to financial need. If you are interested in more information about a scholarship, please contact the church office and speak to one of our pastoral staff members. As a church we continue to organize trips to Nepal and Peru as we desire to share the gospel in these nations where many never have the chance to hear of Christ's love.
For more information and financial goals for missions in 2019, please refer to our Missions Brochure.
Getting involved in missions is one of the greatest outlets for obedience among the body of Christ. We hope you will consider serving with the monthly SALT mission opportunities; joining one of our mission teams to Peru, Nepal, or Haiti; or volunteering at one of our partner agencies. These are great ways to share the Gospel and love others in need of Christ.
