The Upland Church of Christ has a long history of spreading the gospel and helping others throughout the world. Members have been active in the past supporting and conducting medical missions to Nicaragua in conjunction with other Churches of Christ. The Upland congregation provided aid in the past to disasters in Haiti and Mexico as well as throughout the United States! We are currently involved and support the following missions
City of Children is a Church of Christ sponsored mission for needy and orphaned children in Mexico. This mission provides a good home, care, and education to children in need. In doing so, the church has the opportunity to teach the children the Gospel of Jesus Christ and bring love and happiness into their lives.
World Bible School is a proven and cost-effective way of spreading the Gospel to a lost world. World Bible School links together a worldwide network of Christians, missionaries, and churches to teach and reach truth-seekers, bringing them into God's family. This is accomplished through printed, mail-based courses, as well as internet-based formats in which students are taught and guided by Christians of all ages using the World Bible School correspondence courses.
At the present time the congregation supports two missions in Africa. Tamuka Arunashe oversees the work in Hinzeman, Zimbabwe and Sunday Onah oversees the work in Makurdi, Nigeria.
Patricio Bonifacio, an evangelist that facilitates the establishment and nurturing of churches near Manila in the Philippines along with the support of their families.
Dr. Malcom Parsley works with the congregations in South Korea to facilitate their growth and development.
This organization brings communities together in providing the daily necessitates of life to those communities impacted by a disaster. They are able to take financial donations and stretch every dollar to purchase supplies and resources, maintain these supplies in a large warehouse and immediately deliver to an impacted area often coordinating with a local church congregation.
We support two young men in Africa to ensure they are provided the educational resources , medical care, food , shelter and Christian teachings to grow physically and spiritually.
