Christ’s mission is our mission.
In Community of Christ, we believe that our mission is about sharing the peace of Jesus Christ in all its dimensions. Below you’ll find some of the ways we seek to live into that mission. We hope you’ll join us in creating authentic communities rooted in peace and justice!
Youth Ministry in the Pacific Southwest International Mission Center focuses on four primary areas: worship, fellowship, study, and outreach. In all of our activities, at both a Mission Center and congregational level, we strive to include these elements.
The role of youth ministry is to form and develop disciples to serve, engaging youth and children in a way that encourages leadership, spiritual practice, and sacred community, especially in congregations. Check out the calendar page to get more information about upcoming events.
If you have questions about youth ministry, or know of a youth interested in attending our events and becoming active in our community, contact Bryan Tidwell.
Shamrock Ministries is the Senior Health & Advocacy Ministries built on the rock and compassionate ministries of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to provide vital resources to the local congregational leaders, members, friends and family along with scheduling events on a regular basis.
Each event is planned in various locations throughout the Mission Center and is intended to provide socialization, education and food fellowship for all that attend. We also provide a quarterly newsletter that provides education, humor, reflections and remembrances. Check back here often for resources and newsletters. Please contact Denise Leichter to learn more about Shamrock Ministries.
