Here at Agape Church, missions are a very important part of our church and its ministries. We support efforts to share the Love of Christ around the world. Listed below are the efforts we currently support.
Community Care Prayer Outreach
This ministry helps meet the needs of our local community. Their mission is to alleviate the pain and suffering of the elderly, disabled and low income mothers with children by providing basic needs. They do this through clothing and food distributions, utility assistance, rent assistance, medical assistance, prayer support, Thanksgiving food baskets and a Christmas toy program.
Brian and Mary Chamberlin, Tennessee
This couple is dedicated to taking the gospel of Jesus to the streets through personal ministry and outreach events. They demonstrate God's love through acts of kindness such as offering prayer, distributing bibles, feeding the hungry and even acts of service like washing motorcycles at motorcycle rallies. These acts of kindness open peoples heart to receive salvation through Jesus Christ.
