outreach teams

Christ Church is outreach oriented and community minded. We are a leader in the city-reaching movement called Pray Elk River that is becoming a model for evangelism in North America. Our witness begins wherever God has called us to live and serve -- in our neighborhoods, businesses and schools. Our outreach extends as far as Karaba, Rwanda, Africa, through a community-wide mission partnership called Mission Rwanda. God has given us a heart for reaching people with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Come and join us, and volunteer your time, money and talents to support our outreach missions.
