In Genesis 12 and Matthew 28, scripture records the importance of what we now call "missions" to the heart of God. In fact, at Woodlands Community Church, we believe missions is very much the heart of God for each and every one one of us.
In various ways, shapes and forms, missions is more than outreach, relief work and evangelism. We see missions as loving people who are lost into the Kingdom or even loving those on the fringes deeper into their relationship with Jesus. To put it the way Jesus put it, we are learning to become "fishers of men."
Currently we are blessed to have our main international missions focus in the Republic of Ireland where we have some wonderful missionaries involved in church planting and other forms of community-based ministry. Our most recent trip was the winter of 2015-16, on which we had the privilege of working with a local community center as well as a local church to help support what is already happening there.
