Mount Vernon is a missional faith community reaching out to Jerusalem (Raleigh), Judea (North Carolina) and Samaria (United States), and to all the world (Benin, Honduras) following our Lord’s command (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). We invite you to join us on mission for the Lord in 2020 as we serve alongside our fellow laborers on the mission field and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ!
2021 Missions Schedule
Due to uncertainties surrounding travel during 2021, currently, there is only one trip that has been scheduled. Hopefully, we will be sending a team to Casper, Wyoming, July 17 to cook for a youth camp scheduled by the Rocky Mountain Baptist Association. That team of 10 will begin forming in February. Watch the church bulletin for announcement regarding this and other possible mission trips.
