Serve the World
We believe the truest measure of our faith is how we put it into action through service. We work hard to make our communities and our world better, all to bring fame to Jesus. Below are some of the ways we serve the world.

“Jesus said, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'”
We are committed to Serving the World. We are compassionate about the under-resourced and actively work to go and love others throughout the world. Each year, we partner with missionaries and global Christian organizations to foster opportunities for volunteers to participate in a variety of missions projects at home and abroad.
CASA SHALOM ORPHANAGE
We have partnered with an amazing, Christ-centered organization making an amazing impact in San Lucas, Guatemala! Casa Shalom exists to provide a place where children can grow in a nurturing, safe and peaceful environment. Shalom provides meals, educational opportunities, Christian counseling, and guidance for each child entrusted in their care. For more information on how you can participate, visit CasaShalom.net.
Compassion International is an advocate for children, releasing them from spiritual, economic, and social poverty in Jesus’ name! Their goal, and ours, is to enable each child sponsored to become wholly responsible citizens and fulfilled Christian adults. As a church, we have aimed to rescue children from Kenya.

THE SALMON FAMILY – East Asia
Ben and Jess Salmon joined the Emerge Missions team as the leaders of their children’s ministry projects in Thailand, Myanmar and the Philippines. Emerge has been a faithful missions focused non-profit operating in Asia for the past 30 years. They love kids and really feel a strong pull to serve unreached and underprivileged kids in Asia.

JENNIFER “SMITH” – Hanoi, Vietnam
We partner with Jennifer and her amazing work in Hanoi, Vietnam. Jennifer grew up in Augusta and called Stevens Creek Church home for many years. She helps students take their next step in life as an English as a Second Language teacher. As relationships develop, she is able to share about Jesus Christ in an environment that is hostile to open expressions of faith.
