Missions provide all of us the opportunity to share the message of Jesus’ love in what we say and what we do.
At NewHaven we are committed to promoting authentic mission opportunities that will bring hope to those in need, both our local community and our world community.
NewHaven Missions – Because God Cares About Everyone!
NewHaven Church takes seriously the God’s call to make a difference not only of the community we live in, but in the world as well. To accomplish this we partner with great organizations locally and abroad from many different backgrounds to share God’s love. Check them out below and find the place where God is calling you to make a difference!
Every year NewHaven Church selects an outstanding local ministry to support financially for our budget year.
This support allows us to create new relationships and partner alongside those already engaged in effective and life-changing ministry.
