Mission Opportunities

On Mission at Heritage is to do all in our power to mobilize every one of us into the joy and delight of lifting the name of Jesus up in every possible way. And we do this with honesty, simplicity, prayer and love so that the world around us – from our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and city, to those around the world who have never yet heard of the love of God for them in Jesus – may be drawn into his wonderful redeeming love.

We do this everywhere we can, in every way we can – serving in ways that open hearts for the gospel, speaking of Jesus in ways that are beautifully compelling, and incarnating the gospel in real and practical ways that help the world see that our deep soul-thirst can only be quenched in Jesus.

Missionary Care


Heritage Missionaries

At Heritage we support several long-term missionaries. One critical piece to their overall care is sending teams. Each missionary needs a team of people who assist them on the field or while back in the states.
For more details about sending teams, contact Suzi Ware.

Indigenous Missionaries

Heritage is actively involved with supporting the work of over 65 indigenous missionaries in 20 different countries. These are people who became believers in their own country and are now serving full time to reach their own or a neighboring country. Most of them are in an unreached area where there is virtually no access to the Gospel.
For more details about these missionaries or how you can be involved, contact Edie Hardin.

Mission Prayer

Join us Thursdays at 6:30am in the Heritage cafe. We pray for our missionaries, global spiritual concerns and other ministry outreaches. We know it’s early, but coffee is available. Enter through the far west, side door.
For more details contact Global Ministries.
