Domestic & International Missions Trips

It has become increasingly clear to CBC leadership that mission efforts, whether domestic or international are a primary thread in God’s weaving of the Clifford Baptist Church garment. All missions are equally important, whether long term, short term, overseas, in another state or locally. The only question that’s important is “are you serving where the Lord has called you?” If you are; then you are just as faithful to the Lord if you serve locally as if you serve internationally. Surrender to missions is a question of obedience; not location or distance.

People from Clifford have ministered in the following places:
 

Internationally

Angola, Argentina, Brazil,Chad,Chile,Dominican Republic,Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala,Haiti, India, Ireland,Kenya, Malawi, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Rumania, Russia, Slovakia,South Africa,Switzerland,Tanzania,Thailand,Turkey,Yemen,Zambia
 

Domestically

Gulf Coast, Kairos Prison Ministry Impact Virginia, Mountain Mission School, Cherokee, North Carolina, Charlotte, South Carolina, Standing Rock, N.Dakota, Backpack Ministry, Good News Club,Samaritans Purse, Meals on Wheels

 

The Lord is touching the world from Clifford and we want to keep doing it as long and in as many places as the Lord will take us.
