We believe that most of our local outreach will happen by the church body at MVCC as we embrace the “full spectrum” of discipleship that Jesus commanded us to do. This will happen as we are intentional with the gospel with neighbors, co-workers, family members, classmates, or elsewhere. However, there are a few strategic areas that we have strategic teams with the intention of reaching out to and/or partnering with other organizations who share similar heart convictions.
Love Your Neighbor – There are certain segments of our culture that we want to be intentional to love, serve and reach. The orphan, the unborn, the poor, the oppressed, the suffering, the prisoner, etc. Click here to learn more about this philosophy and how we go about serving these categories.
Middle and High School Students – We feel a huge burden to hold out the hope of Christ to the next generation who live in our community. The secondary school years can be some of the most challenging years for any person life and we feel is a great opportunity to love, mentor, and share the hope of Christ with this critical demographic. Our vision is to raise up teams of people who will intentionally go to where the students are, build relationships, and point their hearts to Jesus. We call this “Red Zone Ministry”. If you want to be learn more about being part of one of these strategic teams to reach youth, click here to contact our Middle School Crew or click here to contact our High School Crew ministries.
CSU Campus – One of the main reasons MVCC was planted in Fort Collins is because it is a college town. We have a conviction that many leaders of tomorrow will come from college & university campuses across the world. We believe this time period in life sets a critical trajectory and will serve and lead the church in the future. We believe college students can change the world and we have therefore invested heavily in ministry to Colorado State University. In fact, many of our leaders in our church were first reached on the CSU campus through our college ministry. If you want to learn more about how we go about reaching the campus or want to learn about being part of this strategic team, click here to go to connect with the College Ministry leadership team.
Within the university campus, there are also pockets of people that we target or partner with organizations who are seeking to reach these segments of people.
- Athletes: By partnering with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Athletes in Action, we seek to reach the athletes on campus. Click here to contact us and learn more!
- International Students: The world is coming to Fort Collins. Students from all over come here to study and we pray they would be transformed by Jesus. We partner with Bridges International to reach the international students at CSU with the gospel. Click here to contact us and learn more!
- Vet Students: CSU has one of the world best Veterinarian schools in the country. We seek to reach these students by having a weekly gathering where students are encouraged and equipped to reach other vet students. Click here to contact us and learn more!
