Life on Mission

As a part of the Discipleship Pathway, MacArthur Blvd desires that every member live a Life on Mission.

Commit to join together with God and His people as we seek to accomplish His mission around the world.

We provide various opportunities throughout the year to engage the lost through local initiatives and short-term mission trips.

Go | Give | Pray

Prayerfully seek the Lord to determine whether you should Go on a mission trip, Give to the mission offering, or Pray for missions efforts. Respond with a high level of commitment and faithfulness.

Mission Trip Scholarships

MacArthur Blvd is committed to helping members participate in the mission of God through short mission trips. Scholarship funds are available for members who need financial aid up to 50% of the total trip cost. We ask that each member requesting scholarship funds commit to some form of fund raising in addition to receiving a scholarship.
