Serve Outside The Church / Missions

Be Part of the Mission

We want to equip you and provide opportunities for you to serve outside the church walls and help others. Helping others is at the core of who we are. In fact, it’s so important that it’s part of our church mission – helping people experience Life Change, Life Growth, and Life Purpose! Life Purpose is all about doing what God created us to do, which is to serve others!

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

We want to be an exceedingly generous church giving BIG to help people in need locally, regionally, and globally. Check out Reclaim3d, which exists to reclaim bad circumstances into something beautiful locally, regionally, and globally.

Here Are Ways We’re Helping Others

Local and Regional Missions

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and truth.

    Slavery is at a global high. We’re talking about child exploitation and trafficking. 

    We are the church, and we are going to do something about it.  The goal for 2024 is to raise $45,000 and rescue 30 children from human trafficking in the month of February. We are partnering with Destiny Rescue and Reclaimed to find these children, rescue them, and set them free. This is what the Destiny Rescue Journey to Freedom looks like.

    Stay tuned for the total raised in the month of February.

    3/17/24 Update – So far $41,000 has been raised. We are so close to reaching our goal!


    The Village Christian Church loves to celebrate our community! Dance The Night Away, a free prom for guests with special-needs will be hosted at the church, 8965 South Bell Road in Minooka on Friday, April 19 from 4:30-9 pm.

    Guest spots have been filled. You can contact Patrick Erzinger to be put on a guest waitlist. Please provide your name and phone number along with the name of the guest.
