Creekside is actively involved in strategic church planting endeavors through both local and overseas missions.
We believe that the good news of Jesus brings people into right relationship with God and it calls them into a community where that message can be demonstrated. This community, the church, is both the agent and the aim of true missional activity.
Care for McMinnville
As those that belong to Jesus, we don’t exist for ourselves, but for others. Jesus put it this way,
“Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 5:16
Here are some ways that the people of Creekside are serving here in McMinnville.
- Safe Families for Children – Jake Johnson
- Vine Medical – Jean Erion
- Beyond Backpacks – Meredith Olds
- Young Lives – Zephyr Kamph
Establishing Churches Around the World
We believe that the establishment of healthy churches is central to the work of Jesus Christ and consider it a privilege to join him in that work. To reflect that value, 15% of our general fund giving is set aside to establish churches here in our region and throughout the world. Below are strategic partnerships we have entered in to as we join Jesus’ work in establishing churches.
Crossway Network plants and supports healthy, reproducing churches and regional networks of churches throughout the world for the glory of God.
Lamachaur Church, Pokhara, Nepal
Creekside has partnered with Lamachaur Church since 2004 in a variety of ways to see churches established in the area surrounding Pokhara, Nepal.
We are joyfully investing in the work of the gospel through one of our families who is serving in a closed country in Asia.
We partner with the Buehler family, who are doing gospel work in the Dominican Republic.
Turkey was once one of the central regions of Christianity, but now there is only a small percentage of Christians there. We partner with a local church there to see the message of Jesus Christ re-established in the hearts of the Turkish people.
