Missions Ministry


Central Holston is passionate about missions ministry. Mission Team members make every effort to understand the challenges facing missionary workers and how Central Holston can best support them, not just by administering funds but also by offering support support and encouragement to those serving in mission work. The Central Holston Missions Team also places a high priority on educating the congregation concerning the various groups and organizations with which the church partners.


Historically, missions ministry has played a very important role in Central Holston’s vision of ministry.  Currently, over 15% of the church budget is designated for missions. Moreover, in 2005, church leaders unanimously agreed to contribute 10% of all contributions made toward Central Holston’s building fund to missions ministry, a practice which continues today with the new building fund, the Crossing the River of Faith Fund.


Central Holston partners with a diverse group of missions ministries, twenty in all, including ministries in:  Foreign Missions, Christian Education, Camp Ministries, Campus Ministries, Benevolent Ministries, and support for church members participating in mission trips.  Central Holston remains committed to supporting missionaries in their work and is grateful for many opportunities to participate in ministry with those serving in mission work.
