Local & Global Missions


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.

Every Wednesday evening we gather together as a community and share a meal and worship. We LOVE when people drop by to eat. Join us anytime and see how you can get involved even more. View us on Facebook

KAIROS is a course that helps transform worldviews so that the believer understands God’s purpose for every cultural group in the world, including those that still have few or no churches. The course clearly demonstrates God’s love for the peoples of the world and our call to be a blessing to them. Click here to view next sessions.

This program offers a unique way for people of faith to become directly involved with individuals who are homeless. The basic goal is to keep homeless people from freezing on cold winter nights. A greater goal is to provide a more personal relationship to homeless people, at least for a night, and to foster a deeper understanding of the depth and complexity of the issue.
CRM, Dove’s Nest and Rebound recovery programs are near to our heart.  As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ to those working to overcome addiction and demonstrating that we are a community that cares.

God is on a mission to rescue one more person from loneliness, hopelessness, and spiritual emptiness. We GET TO join him on this Missio Dei every day where we work, play, and live and sometimes we get to do so around the world across seas and languages and cultures.  

We go on Short Term Mission Trips to make a difference and join God’s Mission. But even more, we go on Short Term Mission Trips to jumpstart and supercharge our ability to recognize and live out this Missio Dei every day in our own culture, church, and family. Outside our daily routines and our comfort zones, we get a better view of who God is and what God is doing through his church around the world. These inspire us to re-imagine our role in God’s story of redemption, because the spiritual immersion inspires us to become more of who God called us to be.
