Missions

Participating in the Great Commission and loving one another are the responsibilities of all believers.

Cypress Creek Church supports local, regional, and international ministry partners as part of its pledge to fulfill these responsibilities.

About

Local ministries include: Crisis Bread Basket, Adopt a School, and Barnabas Connection. Regional ministries include Central Texas Life Care and the Hays/Caldwell Women’s Shelter. In addition to these important obligations, CCC also partners with ministries in 15 countries around the world.

In order to invest our resources in the most effective manner possible, most of our ministry partners are nationals – meaning they are from the countries in which they serve. This practice reflects our commitment to empowering those who have been spreading the gospel in a culturally relevant way for many years. We are honored to work with men and women who dedicate themselves to the work of the gospel day in and day out. Click Here to learn more about our partners.

As we pray for the workers in the harvest, we also look for ways to help our partners achieve their objectives and reach a place of financial independence, in order to ensure long-term sustainability for their ministries. Each of these tasks has unique challenges, yet these are the tasks at hand, as we seek to love others as Christ has loved us and participate in the Great Commission, globally
