“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” ~ Matthew 28:19-20
Below are just a few highlights of the mission efforts we are either currently partnered with or have supported in the past:
Sunset International Bible Institute
Over the last two years, Canyon supported the creation and distribution of solar-powered audio bible players in Zimbabwe, Ghana, Liberia, and Nigeria. We’ve sent members from Canyon to Nigeria on two separate mission trips to distribute the solar players and share the gospel.
AIM Missions in Mexico City, Mexico
Canyon supports Princeton and Dani Palmer, full time AIM Coordinators for Mexico City. They are involved in evangelism, teaching and preaching, and working along side other AIM volunteers to grow the church in Mexico City. Their primary role is to recruit and mentor AIM teams to be evangelistic disciple makers of Christ Jesus. Our Youth Group will be going on a mission trip in the summer to help with the work there in Mexico City.
Central Phoenix Urban Ministry
Providing for practical needs, showing love, and sharing the gospel with disadvantaged children and the homeless in the downtown Phoenix area. We have collected and distributed back-to-school supplies and backpacks for children, volunteered at summer outreaches at the park, and more. Contact our senior minister for more details about our monthly work with this worthy organization.
Crossroads Youth Intervention
CRYi helps children, youth, families and individuals overcome the challenges of life in the inner city. Each year we put together “blessing bags” full of toiletries and essential care items for the homeless and serve a holiday meal for the recipients. We’ve also collected toys and helped distribute them and volunteer at a Christmas block party downtown. Our members have also volunteered as after school tutors.
Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Efforts
Immediate emergency response to any major disaster in the continental United States, sending truckloads of food, water, cleaning, and other supplies to disaster victims.
Harvest Missionaries, Sam & Nancy Shewmaker
Serving as Missionaries in Zambia, Kenya, and Rwanda.
New Mexico Christian Children’s Home
A 900-acre working ranch that provides a home and ministers to over 50 orphans, foster children, and families who live and work there.
