The Missions We Support

Why We Support Missions

Missions are vital for Safeharbor’s purpose to be and make disciples of Jesus – nothing more, nothing less. Safeharbor Christian Church makes its home in a tiny little corner of the world called Sanford, FL. Yet, Jesus tells us to make disciples of people all over the world. So, how does a church like ours reach out beyond our own backyard, in to the world, and around the globe? The Answer is Missions.
We used to designate 17% of Safeharbor’s monthly income to our 6 missions partners, but as of 2015 we reduced it to 10% and added fundraising opportunities for several of them throughout the year. In 2015, with the added fundraisers, we actually ended up giving 19%-20% of our income to missions. The missions listed here are partners. As we support them through prayer, encouragement, physical service, and financial support, they are able to faithfully carry out the task of being and making disciples of Jesus locally, regionally, and globally.
Thank you for helping us Unleash the Gospel through the following partners.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-20)
