​​Scriptural Basis

All that we undertake should fulfill the following: 1) The Great Commission (Mt. 28:19-20) Make disciples 2) Matthew 25:35-36, "I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you cared for me, I was in prison and you visited me."

Objectives and Values

- To approach mission through the lens of our United Methodist mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

- To foster and encourage within the Peakland congregation a spirit and desire to support mission work with financial resources and engage directly in such work through personal involvement.

- To provide the opportunity for each church member to engage personally in actual mission activity.

- We pray for God's guidance continually in our decisions

- We target missions where we can make a significant difference

- Our aim is to develop a relationship with our mission partners
