Missions

Reaching our Neighbors, America, and the World for Jesus

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1|8

2|42 Community Church has two distinct and equally focused approaches to Missions. 

Our Communities

First, we seek to train and resource leaders to be missionaries in their neighborhoods and local communities. About 75 percent of our neighbors have no church home or relationship with Jesus.  We believe that our communities are some of the most neglected mission fields in America.  How do we B.L.E.S.S our neighbors?

  • Begin with prayer
  • Listen to people
  • Eat together
  • Serve others
  • Share your story about meeting Jesus

Church Planting

Throughout history, there has been no better way to reach people far from God than planting a church. 2|42 has been a part of more than 35 church plants since we launched as a new church in 2005. More than 7,500 people have found a church home and have begun taking their next steps with God with the help of 2|42.

We are part of a global church network called The Newthing Network, which seeks to be a catalyst for reproducing churches.

Short-term Mission Trips

Because 2|42 is significantly focused on planting churches, each of our short-term missions trips involve contributing to the efforts of new churches. Specifically, we partner with Haiti Christian Outreach to help build trust and partnership between the churches HCO is planting and the local communities. 2|42 has assisted HCO with building projects, food assistance, and mobile medical clinics, to name just a few. Each year, trips are announced on our trip schedule. We are currently working with Compassion International to plan a trip to Nicaragua in 2021.
