Missions

The Great Commission is at the core of Cool Spring’s Mission Ministry Statement, “To reach and develop all people into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ.” We believe that to follow Jesus as his disciple is to be sent out to make disciples. We want to be actively engaged in our community, our state, our nation, and our world to show others what the Kingdom of God looks like!

Partnerships

In order to move out into our community to show the love of Jesus, we are happy to partner with other ministries and organizations to serve others.

Habitat for Humanity

Hanover Habitat for Humanity is an interfaith nonprofit Christian organization, committed in partnerships with qualifies families and community volunteers to create and sell homes with no-profit mortgages.

MCEF

Churches in the Mechanicsville area of Hanover Country, VA work together to provide for the needs of our community. Services include financial assistance, food, clothing, and the Senior Rides Program.

CARITAS

CARITAS helps to break the cycle of homelessness and addiction in the Metro Richmond area so that people can lead stable lives. They are the largest provider of homeless services in the area, and innovative because of their four programs that fill the gaps in the system. CARITAS helps the most vulnerable among us, which makes for a stronger community.

Their purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith, and sending them to win and build others and helping the body of Christ to do evangelism and discipleship through a variety of creative ways.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse that collects gift-filled show boxes and delivers them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations around the world. Collection happens each October and November, with over 500 boxes filled by Cool Spring sent around the world.

Young Life Capernaum

International Partnerships

These are organizations that Cool Spring has joined with to share in ministry, fellowship, and in spreading God’s Word:

Botswana, Africa

Cool Spring has joined in a partnership with the IMB in Botswana, Africa, to reach the Tswana people with the Gospel. This partnership will include sending 3-5 teams a year, made up of 3-5 people, for the next 3-5 years. We are believing God will plant a church in the village of Ditshegwane.

International Mission Board

IMB's mission is to make disciples of all people in fulfillment of the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20. More than 6,000 people groups - 1.7 billion people - still live with little or no access to the Gospel. Their mission is evangelism and discipleship through a variety of creative ways.

Lifesong / Zambia

The Mission of LifeSong is to bring joy and purpose to orphans. They seek to mobilize the church, where each member can provide a unique and special service: some to adopt, some to care, some to give.

Promotion

Each year, Cool Spring joins in financially supporting the spread of the Gospel around the world. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering supports international missions; the Annie Armstrong Offering supports North American missions; the Alma Hunt Offering supports state missions; the Leslie and Hazel Watson Offering supports the mission of our Baptist Association.
