Missional Opportunities

JCPC maintains an active, positive presence in our local community while continuing to support a broad range of mission and service opportunities throughout our region and across the world.  To ensure we continue to act as a “mission centered” church, the JCPC Mission Team continues to:

  • Identify and promote appropriate JCPC mission and service opportunities for the congregation
  • Identify and match time, talents, treasures and spiritual gifts to mission and service commitments
  • Evaluate and report on the success of mission and service engagements

LifeSouth Blood Drives

Donating blood is a selfless act by one person to save the lives of others.  Only approximately 37 %of the US population is eligible to donate with less than 10% of that group actually donating.  Blood Drives occur at JCPC every 8-10 weeks.   You can save three lives with your one donation. Last year JCPC saved 180 lives.

Promise 686

Is guided by Psalm 686 “God sets the lonely in families”.  The agency works to mobilize church communities  to care for vulnerable children by raising awareness, helping to prevent children from going into foster care, by supporting biological families in need, recruiting and equipping foster and adoptive families and by creating care communities for those caring for at risk children.  JCPC has established a Family Advocacy Ministry to support foster care families and biological families by providing meals and numerous other support services. In addition JCPC participates the Care Portal which identifies  immediate needs of children that can be accomplished by donated or purchased items and connecting those in need with resources.

Maranatha Mission, Dominican Republic

Good Samaritan Hospital in La Romana is the centerpiece of the Maranatha vision. Founded in 1997 by the Missionary Baptist Church of Haiti through the visionary leadership of Rev. Jean Luc Phanord, the hospital operates as a not-for-profit corporation serving all those who enter, without regard to their ability to pay. In addition to this extensive medical ministry, Maranatha also works with mission teams from across the U.S. to upgrade conditions in Bateys located throughout the southeast region of the Dominican Republic. This includes the installation of clean water systems, the construction of houses and schools, and support for ministers who serve more than 100 of these small communities. 

JCPC has provided Maranatha with financial support and manual labor to aid in the construction of the Rodney Dexter Henrikson School. This school, located in the La Lachosa barrio on the outskirts of La Romana, serves children who would not otherwise have access to any educational opportunities in the DR, where there is no system of public education. The Henrikson School currently serves more than 500 children in grades one through six with a vision to eventually double the number of students served through the implementation of a full K-12 curriculum.
