Mission and Outreach

 

LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY

One of our core values at Glenkirk is Create. Specifically, creating God’s kingdom on earth as we reach out to our local community through acts of service and Christian mission that are rooted in love for God and for others. God has uniquely gifted you and created you to serve others and to be a light of hope in our community. We would love to help you find the perfect opportunity to serve.

GLOBAL MISSIONS

Each year, we support our partners by joining them in their ministries, such as a VBS and Women’s Bible Study in Chinle, Arizona for the Navajo every July, then visiting them again at Christmas. We’ve been in partnership with Chinle for over 20 years and the stories of personal relationships that have been built are amazing. Glad Tidings India sponsors a mission trip every other year to India where India Bible Literature is doing amazing work through their literacy programs, VBS, and church planting. Tumutumu Hospital and School for the Deaf  hosts Glenkirk in the Guest House we built in 2003 and remain in partnership with the Mount Kenya Women’s Guild.
