GLOBAL MISSIONS DEPT- Creating a heart of mission, ending poverty
ICC Global Missions Department creates a heart of missional service within the congregation at iCC. Our goal is to deliver education and empowerment to impoverished communities worldwide through a network of partner organisations that can evidence their impact on each region.
Our missionary ethos is that aid must lead to trade and that eradicating poverty is the miracle required by the developing world. We therefore seek to foster strategic partnerships with Christ centred organisations that are committed to the eradication of poverty and not just it’s alleviation. Our primary purpose is long term, sustainable relief with the view to empowering communities to become self-sustaining, independent and self-respecting.
What we do:
· Co-ordinate missions service spotlights in which the work of our global partners is highlighted together with our collective impact on regions.
· Organise annual overseas field trips for iCC to give members frontline missionary experience.
· Fundraise for the iCC Global Missions fund.
· Publish a regular iCC Global Missions magazine.
· Participate in organised co-ordinated rapid response to disaster relief.
