Living Out Our Vision

At Faith Oakville, our goal is to live out our mission and vision in our everyday lives – making disciples where we live, work, and play. Jesus says, “Therefore go and make disciples…” Matthew 28:19, and this concept is at the forefront of everything we do at Faith. We believe there are mission fields everywhere - from our own neighborhoods to places much farther away. For those who like to venture farther away to serve the Lord, we offer a few mission trips every year.

Serve Afghan refugees

 

Due to the evacuation crisis in Afghanistan, there are hundreds of Afghan families being resettled in a short timeframe in Saint Louis. These families are in need of financial support and also local groups willing to walk alongside them as they resettle.

 

HOW TO SERVE

Support Groups of 5-10 individuals will work in partnership with Christian Friends of New Americans and the International Institute, to create support groups that will walk alongside Afghan refugee families who are resettling in Saint Louis. All Support Group Members must be at least 18 years old and commit to supporting families for three or six months. You will also complete an application and submit to a background check. Each Support Group will have a designated Support Group Representative who will be the point person for the International Institute and Christian Friends of New Americans (CFNA)

Pine Ridge Mission Trip 2021

On October 2, 2021, a Mission Team of men from Faith traveled to Pine Ridge, South Dakota. The team served the Lakota men and their community on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The team completed any construction projects including removing and installing a new roof on the church, building a mission House to house mission teams, and Lakota families visiting men in the rehab program. The team also connected with Lakota families through devotion, bible study, and sharing meals. $40,000 was raised to support the team and the building projects. Thank you Pine Ridge Team for your faithfulness in connecting people to the extraordinary life found in Jesus.
