Missions Ministry

Ministry Mission

The Missions Ministry seeks to support, encourage and represent the missionaries sent out from New Community as well as educate and equip the larger congregation to live globally, mission-minded lives.

Short-Term Missions Trip Opportunity

The NewCom Missions Team sent our first team on a short-term missions trip to Mexico this summer!  Through the partnership of Merge Ministries, Dan and Wendy Radakovich led a team to Morelos, Mexico to partner with a local Covenant church to assist people who were affected by the recent earthquakes. Our next trip opportunities will be in 2019.  If you want to learn about future missions trip opportunities – contact Sarah Ekstrand.

Who does New Community Support?

New Community supports 7 missionaries who serve both in Chicago and around the world. Learn more about who our missionaries are, where they are serving, what ways you can be praying for them, and find out how to get more frequent updates from them.

How Can I Get Involved?

We have many ideas for how to fulfill our mission but not nearly enough hands to make them all happen. A team member is anyone who has a passion for missions and a desire to practically walk beside those we have sent out as a church. If you fit this description, we have a place and a role for you!  If you are unable to commit to being a team member but would like to help out with our events, contact the Missions Team Leader, Sarah Ekstrand.
