Jesus commissions his people to go into every nation on earth and “make disciples”. Around the world, there are people who are hungry and thirsty for God, desiring forgiveness and yearning for a personal love relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Cannon Beach Community Church is a global minded “Great Commission” congregation, obedient to our Lord’s challenge to make disciples of all nations. We are a mission outpost in God’s kingdom work in this world.
We love commissioning short-term and long-term/career missionaries to serve around the world. We encourage people to enter into full-time Christian service. We give away 22 cents of every dollar donated to support mission work, local, national and international. We weekly pray for the Lord’s blessing to send out workers into his abundant harvest fields (Matthew 9:37-38. “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”)
Short-Term or Long-Term Mission

Consider stepping out into a career calling of full-time, long-term mission service.
