"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations"

Matthew 28:19

What is the mission of the church? What is the purpose and mission of every follower of Jesus? To do the same thing He asked His followers to do in the 1st century. To “Go and make disciples of all nations  ...  Go  into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” This is called the Great Commission. It is the Great Mission. Jesus is calling us to join a long line of followers and express His love and proclaim His Gospel to the world. The mission of the church is to take the Gospel across the street and around the world, and every Christian plays a role in that mission.

Our Missionaries

Golfing Fore Children

Golfing Fore Children is an annual golf tournament sponsored by Lake Arrowhead Church to benefit various organizations and ministries that help needy children in Cherokee County. This year will be the 33rd year of the tournament. Proceeds from the tournament fund our partnerships with Goshen Valley Foundation, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, MUST Ministries, and our partnership with Cherokee County Schools.

Goshen Valley Foundation

The Goshen Valley Boys Ranch, located on 160 acres in northern Cherokee County, is home to around 40 young men in foster care age 8-18. All boys participate in therapeutic counseling, public school education, and our comprehensive recreation program, all while living in a unique, family-based home. The  goal is for every young man to know the safety of a home, the love of a family, and the hope of a future.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes

MUST Ministries

FCA is a Christian sports ministry working to impact the world for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.  We support FCA in Cherokee County and at Reinhardt University. Each summer, our church also sponsors a sports camp for grades 1-8 in Lake Arrowhead.
MUST Ministries has helped needy families in Cherokee County for over 30 years, providing food, clothing, employment assistance, and emergency housing.

Operation Christmas Child

Shepherd's Hook

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse., which provides spiritual and physical need to hurting people around the world. Each year, our church prepares several hundred Christmas shoeboxes to needy and hurting children.
Shepherd's Hook is part of our women's ministry which meets to knit and crochet for various causes in our community. This past year, the efforts of Shepherd's Hook helped 16 different ministries in our area.

Missions India


Out of India's 2, 153 people groups, 90% of them are unreached with the Gospel. So our church is honored to partner with Mission India in their church planting strategy. Our financial support goes to train two church planting pastors each year, and also host several literacy programs for adults and Bible clubs for children.
LUO is the Greek word for "set free." LUO  established a community clinic and school called Ithmeba in South Africa in 2007, providing meals, nutrition, medical and dental care, education, and spiritual formation to some 350 children.
