CHRIST CHURCH MISSIONS
Your Missions Committee is at the heart of outreach to the world for Christ Church Santa Fe. Our church goal is to give 10% of our offerings to benevolence activities. 70% of that is prayerfully managed by your Missions Committee. Through the more than 5 global mission partners selected by the committee for 2017 — CCSF truly does impact the world. Christ Church Santa Fe supports several national and international missions, providing assistance through prayer, finances and physical presence. Some of our partners in sharing Jesus Christ around the world are listed below.
As part of the 2013 CCSF building campaign (God’s Work is Alive!), we built four churches in Africa: three in Nyasirori, Guta, and Iguata, Tanzania, and one in Nyagatare, Rwanda.
