Go and make followers of all the nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do all the things I have told you. And I am with you always, even to the end of the world.
Switzerland Community Church has a long standing emphasis on missions. In Acts 1:8, Jesus commanded, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea, in Samaria and in every part of the world.” Our missions program strives to do just that.
Supported Missions and Missionaries:
SCC regularly supports 27 missionaries and ministries, five of which live and serve in foreign countries, and 21 who live domestically, either in Jacksonville and surrounding areas, or elsewhere in the United States. Most of the 21 serve domestically while a few travel and serve in foreign countries.
Those foreign countries where our supported missionaries serve include France, Russia, Israel, Spain, Peru and India. Those domestic areas in the United States where our supported missionaries serve include Jacksonville, other cities in Florida, Pennsylvania, Alaska and Wisconsin.
Almost 20% of SCC’s annual operating budget goes towards missionary-related support. Most of those dollars goes towards financially supporting our missionaries and their ministries, while a smaller amount goes towards one-time needs, as well as costs associated with the upkeep and maintenance of our missions house.
SCC’s Missions Committee currently has nine members: Debbie Johnson, Chair; Mike Abraham; Robin Chambers; Glenn Copp; Amy Koppe; Jim Rockenbach; Debi Lumley; Tom Lumley; and Pastor Joseph Smith.
