LOCAL AND GLOBAL MISSIONS
We leave the building
We make disciples of all nations through being
generous with our time and resources
Jesus tells us to go out and make disciples of all nations and we at LifePoint do this by spreading the love of Christ through meeting the tangible and relational needs alongside various Christ-centered nonprofits both locally and globally. We believe every opportunity to share the love of Jesus is a crucial part of discipleship and we believe when we “leave the building”, we become missionaries through generosity, love and/or teaching those who are in need in our community and around the world.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20
We have a plethora of volunteering opportunities and ways to be generous with our resources here locally and around the world. You can explore our LifePoint partnerships below and you can be a part of our regular serving opportunity needs by subscribing to our regular email.
Awaken is a local faith-based non-profit organization whose mission is to increase awareness and education surrounding the issue of commercial sexual exploitation and to provide housing and restoration for its victims.

City of Refuge
City of Refuge exists to provide a safe place for women to live who have chosen life for their baby. The women learn life skills, parenting skills, and are provided with opportunities to learn how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. The organization provides young women with the model of a Christ-centered family life! We support City of Refuge financially, with volunteer work, and bi-annual work days on their ranch.
FISH (Friends in Service Helping) provides food, training, clothing, shelter, and medical aid to the under-employed, homeless, and hungry within our community, with the objective to train and refer families and individuals so they may become self-sufficient. LifePoint comes alongside FISH with volunteering opportunities and participates in their annual sock and gloves need every January.
Northern Nevada Dream Center
The Northern Nevada Dream Center was created out of a vision to bring relief and God’s love to residents and the homeless in our local communities. LifePoint supports the Northern Nevada Dream Center through churchwide financial and volunteer support!
Life Choices is a faith-based organization that provides services and counseling for young women who choose life for their unborn babies. LifePoint shares volunteer needs as they arise and participates in their annual baby bottle-boomerang fundraiser.
At LifePoint, we believe that we are directly obeying and loving Jesus Christ when we give to and care for the poor through local and global missional opportunities.
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers
and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
This is the vision of Josiah Venture, a vision for a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe and finds its home in the local church and transforms society.

LifePoint provides monthly financial support and opportunities for a yearly missions trip.
