The mission of University Presbyterian Church is to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). The Missions Team is committed to supporting that mission, and moves forward within its own mission statement:
"A network of people, like you, connecting locally and globally through strategic partnerships to fulfill our common dream of making disciples of all nations."
The UPC missions team is focused on the following actions:
- Missions, both domestic and abroad.
- Missions, both short-term and long.
- Spreading God's Word.
- Being a Global Neighbor.
UPC missions supports both internal mission activities as well as external missionaries that are stationed around the world. Our support is focused on missionaries that are primarily involved in church planting in areas which have a strong need for hearing the Gospel. Currently UPC is supporting missionaries in Japan and Cherokee, North Carolina. We also send out our own members to do long-term and short-term ministry around the world.
We have two exciting mission trip opportunities this year! Click links for more information.
