Learning through short-term missions
One way we try to knit the hearts of our congregation to missions (international and domestic) is through short-term trips. Most years there is a week-long “Work and Learn” project and/or a week-long evangelism experience. “Work and Learn” trips include:
BIC Navajo Mission work project- December 1995
Build housing in Venezuela – January 1997
Puerto Rico hurricane disaster relief – early 1999

Meeting needs in our community
Whether through meals for homeless (“Sidewalk Cafe”), helping roof a home, serving at a nursing home, visiting a women’s shelter, giving a hand to disaster relief, or just helping someone rake their leaves, we seek to make a positive difference in our community in Jesus’ name.
Needs and opportunities are always shifting, call for more information on how you can help.
Supporting our international missionaries
New Vision Church is very active in supporting the world-wide missionary work of the Brethren in Christ. More than 75% of our churches are outside of America!
We also have connections with many other missionaries, including friends and family who have gone out into countries in Asia, Africa Europe and South America.
