The mission of reaching the nations and those across the street with the Gospel is urgent. We can participate in the daily activities of church planters, missionaries, and our own personal sharing with our ones through fervent prayer. 

Matthew 9 shows us the importance of praying...

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” -Matthew 9:37-38

  • Pray that those who share will do so in clear and understandable ways.
  • Pray for opportunities for children to hear about Jesus. Ask the Father to protect them from harm and unhealthy environments.
  • Pray for house churches around the world to be established and for unity, vision and willingness to “be” church for one another.
  • Pray for the families of church planters across North America. 
  • Pray for your One

When you give to the General Operating Budget at Jersey, 13.5 CENTS of every dollar given goes to support Missions both locally and around the world

75% International | 15% North American | 5% Volunteer Missions | 5% Jersey Missions

Simply select MISSIONS when giving online or write MISSIONS on your check. 

Total budget designated to Missions last year: $432,790

Total COMBINED Missions Giving last year: $864,002

In the past decade, we have given $7,001,544 to mission efforts locally and around the world 



Jesus’ last words on earth set the standard for every believer: to glorify Him by making His name known. This is why Christ calls every believer to play their part in taking the Gospel locally and around the world.

The call to mission begins at home. We are called first to our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Additionally, we support local missions through Stowe Mission of Central Ohio, Look Up Center, L.E.A.D.S. Center, Storehouse for Jesus, Johnstown Food Pantry, a local Truck Stop Ministry, the Licking County Jail Ministry, and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief on an ongoing basis.


When you give and serve, you help places like the Stowe Mission Center, a ministry in inner-city Columbus. They provide assistance to those in need through a community kitchen, food pantry, dental, eye, and pregnancy resource clinics, after-school tutoring, and Stowe Church South City. Through your giving and the ministries of Stowe, we hope to see our inner-city neighbors grow into leaders who can then help others grow. Thank you for making a difference.

A new church plant seeking to show the grace and kingdom of Jesus to Canal Winchester, Ohio.
