The Upland Church of Christ takes seriously the idea of spreading the gospel and helping others throughout the world. Members are active in supporting and conducting medical missions to Nicaragua in conjunction with other Churches of Christ. The Upland congregation has met the challenge to aid in recent disasters to Haiti and Mexico. We are currently involved in providing water to a school and village in Ethiopia paid for by special contributions to be completed in 2011. We also 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.
Two brothers, Roberto and Patricio Bonifacio, supervise the establishment and nurture 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.
