Making a Difference in the Lives of His People
Mt. Pisgah's Mission Strategy is based upon the Acts 1:8 Model.
Jerusalem (Kershaw, Lancaster, & Chesterfield Counties)
We work jointly with several churches in our area to provide Sacks-of-Love every week to Mt. Pisgah Elementary School. Our Men's Ministry has built several handicap ramps in our area. We have also done some work with the Lancaster Children's Home, Tri-County Preganancy Center and distribute free Bibles at several local stores.
Judea (South Carolina)
Each year we send out Prisoner Packets and Migrant Worker Kits to be distributed by the South Carolina Baptist Convention. We also participate in Raceway Ministries distributing tracts during the Darlington race and work within our community to help with various needs, one is building handicap ramps.
Samaria (United States)
Our recent focus has been Cleveland, Ohio which is one of the North American Mission Boards Send Cities. This will be our third year working in this area with church planters. In the past years we have had Missions Teams work in Ranson, West Virginia (2006) and Rogersville, Tennessee (2007, 2008. 2009, & 2010) and Bryson City/Cherokee, NC (2012 & 2013) where we worked with the South West Area Resort Ministries (SWARM). Our teams conducted VBS and Backyard Bible Clubs, Home Repair, and ministered to Nursing Homes and conducted Worship Services in campgrounds and churches. We have been fortunate to see folks come to Christ in each location.
We also have several members involved in mission work in Juneau, Hoonah, & Auke Bay, Alaska working with Echo Ranch Bible Camp in Auke Bay and homeless ministries in Juneau and working with NAMB Missionaries in Hoonah. This is part of a larger effort being sponsored by Outreach Ministries out of Myrtle Beach, SC.
Ends of the Earth
Each year we support the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and collect Christmas Shoe Boxes for Samitan's Purse. Our Pastor has also worked with the Hungarian Baptist Churches in and around Oradea, Romania and has made several trips to the Amazon jungle in Peru to work with the Urarina People. We continue with a partnership with the KBA with REAP North in Peru and the Urarina People. The next trip to the Amazon is being planned for March of 2014.
Mt. Pisgah takes several special offerings each year to support missions. These include Annie Armstrong, Associational Missions Offering, Christmas in August, Janie Chapman State Missions Offering, Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Baby Bottle Offering for the Tri-County Pregnancy Center, and a Mother's Day Offering for the SC Ministry for the Aging. We also support the Connie Maxwell Children's Home and the Gideon's mnistry.
Our Men's Ministry and Women's Missionary Union (WMU) play a vital role in missions education, missions giving and leading the church in mission work.
