World OutreachOur Vision
God empowers each of us to obey His command to make Him known to all the world. As advocates in support of cross-cultural missions, we are committed to:
1. Educating the believer on the worldwide task of spreading the Gospel of Christ.
2. Supporting those who have made the commitment to "Go".
Our desire is for everyone to experience missions first-hand. Here are past and current opportunities for Short-Term Missions through SCC:
- Annual Spring Break construction team to Mexico
- 2010 work team to Baja Bible School, Tijuana, Mexico.
- 2010 Africa Mission Team sent to Burkina Faso to work at the Gampela Conference Center.
- 2009 Africa Mission Team sent to Burkina Faso to build a playground at the Gampela Conference Center.
- 2008 Exploratory Team sent to Burkina Faso, Africa.
- 2003 medical team sent to Tzalbal, Guatemala
Our goal is to help educate the congregation about missions, including missionary visits and a Missions Emphasis Day each year for children’s Sunday School.

DOOR Africa - DOOR’s goal is to provide Christian leadership training and sign language Bible and study materials to every country on the African continent in 30 years or less. How are they going to do this? Through the newly dedicated (February 2011) Deaf Bible Training and Translation Center in Nairobi, Kenya. This center is the hub for Deaf teams from around Africa (and the world) to gather to translate Bible stories into the sign languages of their home countries—in other words to produce “visual translations” (a visual Bible on DVD). DOOR has partnered with Wycliffe Bible Translators and The Seed Company to make this exciting breakthrough happen! Click here to see photos of the new center
