The Big Canoe Chapel offers financial support and service to a number of ministries both regionally and around the world through the Missions Committee. These are all Christian-based ministries, through which the Big Canoe Chapel can witness to God’s love for us by showing our love to the people served by these ministries. We offer financial support only after a thorough review of the needs of the ministry and the numbers of people served by the ministry. Also, we serve these ministries through a number of short term mission trips, sponsored and endorsed by the Chapel with teams of Chapel members. In the past several years Mission Teams have worked in Nicaragua and Russia as well as in the inner city of Atlanta and in the storm ravaged Mississippi Gulf Coast. Purpose Statement: The purpose of the Missions Committee is to empower Christian ministries with Chapel funding and human resources to support their efforts (1) to share the gospel, (2) to teach and nurture believers, (3) and to show compassion to people in need resulting in an opportunity to demonstrate the grace and love of God through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
The purpose of the Mission Committee is to empower Christian Ministries with Chapel funding and human resources to support their efforts:
To grow people’s relationship with God, who draws us to himself in Jesus and with one another through worship, education, outreach, fellowship and involvement. We embrace core Christian beliefs and traditions and affirm the authority of Scripture and the importance of prayer, all in a multi-denominational setting. The Chapel will always provide a compassionate and caring central focus for the Big Canoe community and gladly share the monetary and human resources, entrusted to us by God, to reach out to people in need, both at home and around the world.
