Mission & Witness
Mission & Witness Department combines two functions that are usually considered separate in church functions, the missions (what the church does as a Christian entity to serve others) and witnessing Christ (telling the story of Christ's life and His message).

Encourages and coordinates hands-on ministries as well as makes recommendations to the Board for the allocation of mission funds. Serves as a coordinating committee for specific ministries such as the Homeless Overflow Shelter.
- Develops, coordinates, and implements a congregational plan for welcoming and integrating visitors. Encourages and equips persons to become active members of the community of faith at First Christian.
