In Revelation 7:9, the Bible paints a picture of heaven as one giant group of people from every tribe and nation and speaking in every language all in the singular event of worshiping Christ. With this, we believe that the church is one body across all languages and cultures, we want to latch on to what God is doing to bring back all people unto himself.
Matthew 28:19-20, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
At LifeWell, we want to be a church that champions missions. We do not just want to support missionaries, we want our people to be actively involved in going and supporting missions.
One of the very first missions we wanted to support as a brand new church family is Puente International–a ministry that exists "to connect people to a living gospel by helping break the cycle of poverty in Costa Rica". They help spread the practical love of Jesus by assisting in education (providing supplies, uniforms, and tutoring so that the next generation can escape the poverty cycle), emigraiton (helping those escaping worse conditions in Nicaraugua obtain their legal documents), and employment.
Founded by Andrew Butz and working alongside local Costa Rican pastor, Efraim Campos, this ministry is constantly seeking new ways to help people realize a better life through encountering the gospel of Jesus Christ–and that is why we are proud to support them in their efforts however we can!
CONNECT Christian Camp & Retreat Center
Located right next door to our church facility, CONNECT Christian Camp & Retreat Center is seeking to make connections that will last for an eternity and change lives by connecting kids to Christ.
As a Kingdom-focused non-for-profit organization that believes in building lasting relationships with churches and their followers, their "family first" motto has shaped all that they say and do. They offer a variety of experiences tailored to meeting this goal, including day camp, summer camp, and retreats.
We are honored to have some of our very own church family be involved in both the leadership and volunteer staff of this amazing Christian ministry, so it is our joy to support them financially as one of our missions.
