Mission activity at CV First is an essential part of who we are – the world-wide church of God, working collectively to make disciples as we are called to do:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Mt. 28:19-20
We do this through our long-term missionaries working around the world (see Our Missionaries) and through partnership with missions agencies:
E-3 is an ongoing project that was begun by two Malawians to Educate, Empower and Employ the people of Malawi, in partnership with churches and individuals. CV First is one of E-3’s partners that helps to fund projects and sends short-term teams every two years to minister to the people through mobile medical clinics, evangelism, home stays, sports programs, and special projects (such as solar power and water wells).
The Chisomo Idea
The Chisomo Idea is a sports ministry that works in Africa to spread the Gospel through the shared interest of sports. CV First is partnered with the Chisomo Idea in relationship with their work in Malawi. Teams from CV First have been going to Malawi to serve alongside Chisomo since 2009.
She Is Safe
She Is Safe works to prevent, rescue and restore women and girls from abuse and exploitation in high risk places around the world, equipping them to build a life of freedom, faith and a strong future. We partner with them to assist in their efforts to partner with local women, churches and nonprofits to transform the lives of women and children.
We are blessed to support these partnerships and ten missionaries. These missionaries and their families have given their lives in service to the Lord to make disciples around the world and are very much a cherished part of our church family.
