Valley Road Global is the cross-cultural ministry of our church. This includes support of partner ministries active at home and overseas. Our involvement includes prayer, active sending, and financial support.
This is a “Church-Centred Mission” approach which puts high value on direct ministry involvement with like-minded churches and church-centred ministries. We desire for our whole church to take ownership of the mission God calls us to through extended family relationship with those we partner with.
“Church-Centred Mission” deliberately seeks to bring together the church, and the mission of the church as one. This recognises the missional nature of the church as the people of God (1 Peter 2:9-10). From the church, individuals, families, and teams are set aside as ministries to be sent as ambassadors of Christ and as representatives of our whole church family. This mission involvement includes church planting, ministry equipping, and works of mercy.
