our Focus

Chapel Rock's primary purpose in missions is to evangelize the lost starting with the immediate community and extending to the ends of the earth. Through numerous missionaries and mission organizations, Chapel Rock ministers to people around the world. And, through many community outreach ministries Chapel Rock ministers to the whole person and to anyone willing to hear the gospel taught. Missions ministry serves the congregation by offering resources and experiences to enhance missions in the church. 


  • To share Christ's heart for the world (Matthew 9:36-38)
  • To see men, women, and children saved and brought to knowledge of God (John 3:16, Romans 10:13-15) 
  • To minister to the whole person within the scope of world evangelism
  • To educate and inspire the congregation in the field of world missions
  • To support, encourage, and evaluate all missionaries, and to communicate with them as to their physical and spiritual needs, both on a monthly and long-term basis

MISSION TRIP UPDaTES

January

February

March

The Man-up team had 7 men go to Dominican Republic to work and minister with Crosswinds.  Below is a testimony from participant, Bill Roberts.   


What a powerful week. Words can't really describe it, but I'll try. I spent the last 7 days with some great guys that have a servant’s heart, we worked hard and pushed and supported each other. A great display of team work to reach the goal put before us, we did it. I am very proud to be part of the team. We spent the week with an entire group of folks that have a servant’s heart, the staff at CMA are beyond amazing to work with. Their commitment to Christ, students, community and each other is inspiring to say the least. The best part of the week was the time I was able to spend with the Lord. I put a lot of stuff at His feet and off my heart. He spoke to me, spoke to my heart. Some of it was tough to hear/feel, some tough decisions need to be made and changes. My focus on Him is renewed. The timing of this trip was perfect, God knew that all along. I'd love to share pics and stories with anyone interested. Just Jesus!!! 


April
