Every year, we sponsor a number of short-term missions in which many members of our congregation engage. In addition to GCC-sponsored trips, our members are involved in a variety of missions efforts, both near and far.
The Missions Committee offers a tiered system specifically for youth as they progress through missions opportunities at GCC:
Tier 1 - Local Church ministry with a training requirement.
Tier 2 - U.S.-based overnight trip, serving outside the St. Louis but not outside the continental U.S.
Tier 3 - Foreign Missions - anything outside of the U.S.
