In Local Missions we seek to give everyone present at Centerpoint first-hand experience on what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ locally. We do this by encourgaging our program ministries at Centerpoint to care for the wider community through service projects, by starting care ministries for local neighborhoods, and by partnering with key organizations that care for the needs of the greater community.
Below are our Partners who help us coordinate projects and service opportunities.
