Missions 2018

As a part of the Discipleship Pathway, MacArthur Blvd desires that every member live a Life on Mission. We provide various opportunities throughout the year to engage the lost through local initiatives and short-term mission trips.

Go | Give | Pray

Members are encouraged to either Go, Give or Pray for missions in the next year. Prayerfully seek the Lord in how you should Go, Give, or Pray and 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.
