The Center Street Church of Christ has a long-standing commitment to mission work. Currently, we are involved with spreading the Gospel in the African nations of Ghana, The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and the South American country of Bolivia.
We directly support the work of Isaac Daye in The Gambia and the work of Erik Reyes in Bolivia.
Craig Laird is an associate minister for the Center Street church, and a big part of his duties have to do with coordinating our mission work. He reports on those activities in his mission blog.
In addition, we are involved with Gospel Tracts International, a work of the Baldwin Church of Christ, also in Fayetteville. This ministry prints and ships 2-million pieces of literature annually to mission points around the world. In addition to financial support, several members of the Center Street church are involved in the weekly Thursday Morning Tract Workings held at the Baldwin church building. Our associate minister, Robb Hadley, also is on loan to GTI one day a week to assist this ministry’s director, Bobby Dockery, in the work.
We also send financial support to In Search of the Lord's Way, a television ministry out of Edmond Oklahoma which produces a program broadcast all over the U.S.A. and on the internet.
Each Summer we have a mission trip to either an overseas or stateside mission point. Recent overseas destinations have included visited The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Bolivia.
