What does it mean to be a “Missional Church”? It refers to churches that purposely reach out and minister to those who are not a part of their assembly! Greenwood Park has a rich history of ministry in foreign missions, benevolence, campus ministry and more recently, working with Refugees in our community!
The international missions work began in the 1970’s with work in Indonesia and Canada and over the years has supported missionaries in India, Honduras, Nicaragua, China and Colombia. Members have taken mission trips to Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Belize and several sites in the United States. Currently, we are supporting the following missionaries: Jonas and Brenda Chavez in Managua, Nicaragua; Hugo and Valeska Rivera in Managua, Nicaragua; Gary Hall in Cartagena, Colombia; Manuel and Nancy Gonzalez, Ft. Worth, Texas. The Missions Committee organizes a medical mission trip every 2 years or so and we try to visit each of our supported missionaries every year.
How does Missions fit our Mission Statement?
We elevate God when we preach the gospel everywhere.

Embrace a Shared Life
Many of our members have been on mission trips with this congregation to Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica over the last 3 decades and this time together has built life-long connections with those who shared these experiences.
