Global Mission

Our Genesis

Global Mission for The Neighborhood church began in Sumpango, Guatemala. For the past 3 years, our presence in Guatemala has helped us better understand how to truly change church and build relationships. It has impacted the lives of children living with HIV and families living below the poverty line. It has allowed families within our congregation to reunite and grow together more closely in ways never anticipated by serving alongside one another. It has been an incredible experience for our youth to explore the world around them sharing God’s message. And it has been an opportunity for those within our church who are unable to travel to support an amazing cause. To put it simply, Sumpango, Guatemala has changed ALL of us.


In 2018, we are excited to announce that we are exploring NEW global mission opportunities to add to our efforts in Guatemala in future years. This year, we will send explorers North, South, East and West to share the love of Christ with more of our neighbors from around the world. While experiencing and embracing those cultures, they will bring back the message of how God is moving in those communities, and we will consider larger scale mission in those areas in future years. Come explore God’s Kingdom with us!
