Serve to No End. Love Where You Live. Love Where You Go. This is the heart of the Mission Ministry of Woodlands Church. Their mission is to see a community of people radically devoted to eagerly and selflessly serving, giving of themselves to authentically love the one in front of them. To see the liberation and transformation of millions of lives and communities through the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To see the dehumanizing oppressive reality of poverty forever broken and communities transformed to wholeness of life through Christ Jesus. To see the awakening and release of the God-given potential of countless next generation followers of Jesus Christ as agents of transformation.
Woodlands Church creatively uses every means available to share and show the hope of Christ, leveraging relationships and strengths of local churches around the world. They may lead initially with clinics, building projects, education, or business enterprise, but each is a means to meet very real physical needs and opens the door to sharing Christ, resulting in lasting life-change.
Through global and local missions, disaster relief, Farmer Field Schools, and the WC Trading Co., Woodlands Church makes a significant impact in the hearts and lives of people around the world. At the Mobilizing Medical Missions (M3) Conference, Woodlands Church sets up their WC Trading Co. Fair Trade Store. WC Trading Co. exists as an expression of Woodlands Church because they believe every life has purpose. Every single person has God-given gifts and talents. WC wants to help empower others to break the chains of poverty and help lift them with dignity and hope to reach their God-given purpose. Buyers at any of the WC Trading Co. stores are a part of a gift that gives twice! By purchasing products at a fair wage, WC Trading Co. is able to break poverty cycles and create sustainable change and development. Each item represented in the store is handmade and uniquely characterizes a different person, culture and story. WC Trading Co. has the opportunity to give artisans from remote parts of the world a global voice simply by shopping with purpose!
