As a community of faith, hope, and love, WVPC has a long standing commitment to local and global missions. We believe this is how we tangibly make the love of Christ known to a hungry and hurting world. That is why we annually commit more than 10% of our entire church budget to support local and global missions, why we regularly seek to bless our local community with a wide range of local mission projects, and why we support mission projects and missionaries throughout the world. God has an extraordinary purpose for our lives - to see the poor lifted up, the hungry fed, the broken healed, and the lost to find life in the kingdom of God. This is how we find the greatest fulfillment in our relationship with God through Jesus and how God uses us to bless the entire world. At WVPC we encourage everyone to begin serving missionally and discover God's deep and beautiful purpose for their lives.
