From hosting mission trips to supporting those in full-time missionary work, Elmhurst CRC has many ways to get involved in the missions field.

October, 2017
Do you know a missions group or Christian service organization with a compelling project for 2018? The Missions Team has decided to award $20,000 of its budget to fund grants of up to $4000 to support local and global ministry projects. Christian ministries with ties to Elmhurst CRC can submit an APPLICATION ONLINE by November 1. The team will want to understand how the project supports the organizational mission, and advancing the Gospel (through word or deed). Questions? Contact Mike Boot or Dan Barak at missions@elmhurstcrc.org.

The Elmhurst CRC Missions Team

The Mission Team exists to develop missions as a core value of our church and to act as the liaison between our church and the missionaries we support financially and through prayer.  We do these things for the purpose of helping anyone touched by this ministry take the next steps toward becoming more like Jesus Christ.
