Jesus gives us the power and command to “go” make disciples and care for those in need. Therefore, Lake Forest Church joins the Missio Dei (mission of God) by engaging in the lives of vulnerable people; the homeless and home-bound, orphans and widows and the unreached and overlooked. Our goal is to share God’s love with our actions and words.

At Lake Forest Church there are several opportunities to serve locally with our partner ministries, participate on short-term, cross-cultural mission trips as well as send others on trips with your prayers and financial support. Whether you hug a street child, volunteer in a local partner ministry, serve alongside a pastor in another country or form a long-term relationship with a local family who is economically or culturally different, you are becoming the hands and feet of Jesus.

Global Missions

The missio Dei is God’s mission to call all peoples to Himself through the global church. Jesus calls His church to be on the missio Dei every day wherever we are, and He also commands us to GO and join God’s mission in other cultures and places.

Short-term mission trips are spiritual-growth accelerators and will be most transformational to those who understand their trip as a part of a much larger story of God’s mission as it is written in the Scriptures and in their every-day lives. Our goal is that everyone within the Lake Forest tribe will be engaged in cross- cultural mission work as a way to discover and live out their role in God’s story.

Local Missions

Caterpillar Ministries exists for the hope that children and their families living in Huntersville’s Huntington Green community will have a relationship with Jesus that enables them to become all that God has created them to be.

We work primarily with children from birth to high school and their mothers. Genuine relationships are at the heart of everything we do, and those relationships are what set Caterpillar Ministries apart.

Get Involved
