MISSIONS WE SUPPORT

Our church motto is "...equipping the saints for the work of the ministry..." .   All those who practice ministry in the name of Christ have undertaken a Mission.  At COS this does not simply mean employing a few selected professionals to do God's work.  No, it means "The Saints" actually doing Ministry, according to the gifting and calling of the Spirit of God.  "The Saints" is a term that embraces the whole Christian Church.  Some of those we support are globally positioned professionals.  While others are ministering members of the local community who attend here at COS.   Still, all of these people are missionaries, and all are part of our family.   Below, you can Explore their ministries and the fruit God brings.
