MISSIONS MINISTRY

“For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles,

that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’”

Acts 13:47

The Missions Ministry of Ashburn Presbyterian Church is involved in community outreach as well as national and international missions. Members of APC have participated in domestic and overseas mission trips, we provide funding to various missions-related organizations, and encourage volunteer support. We educate by inviting speakers to share testimonials about how serving through missions has impacted their lives, as well as the lives of others.

LOCAL MISSION

Backpack Coalition

We currently provide weekend meals for food-insecure students at seven schools in Loudoun County through the Backpack Coalition program. This is one of our largest community outreach mission programs. 

We are always accepting donations of food to help keep our pantry well stocked throughout the school year. Look for the bright green recycleable grocery bags near the Backpack Coalition pantry with a grocery list printed right on the bag. Simply fill it up and return it when you come on Sunday morning!

CRU MISSIONARIES

Philadelphia, PA

We provide financial and prayerful support to the Mitchell Family, Greg and Steph, (and Lily, too!), Cru missionaries currently serving in Philadelphia, PA.

2019 was a busy year for the Mitchell Family, as they relocated from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia. Greg is pursuing his M.Div. at Westminster Theological Seminary. He and Steph continue to serve Cru, reaching out to their neighbors, and sharing the love of Christ.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES

Additionally, APC supports several other local missions, including Loudoun Hunger Relief (formerly Loudoun Interfaith Relief), The Good Shepherd Alliance and Loudoun Habitat for Humanity. During Advent season we participate Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection. Do you have a mission-related idea or a question? We are always looking suggestions for new mission opportunities. Contact Lenore Waggoner, Elder of Missions at the link below.
