Our commitment is to help spread the gospel of Jesus in our own communities, throughout our region, and around the world.
We believe that living out the gospel makes sharing the gospel more credible. Zion meets needs locally by partnering with organizations and individuals to make our communities a better place to live.
Currently, we collaborate with a variety of organizations committed to making our communities better in the areas of poverty reduction, education, mental health care, drug and alcohol recovery, family issues, and foster care. These include Zion's Jesus Pantry, Women at the Well Ministries, Next Step Pregnancy Solutions and Services, Clarion County Children and Youth Services, the Petroleum Valley Youth Center, and Child Evangelism Fellowship.
We believe that reproducing is at the heart of discipleship. Zion will continue to be a reproducing church, strategically leveraging our resources, people, and finances, to see the gospel spread throughout Western Pa and beyond. Whether reproducing more multi-site locations or planting brand new churches, we believe church planting/multiplication is the best strategy for reaching new people in new places with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Currently, we financially support the work of the Baptist Resource Network in Pennsylvania/South Jersey who are committed to church planting throughout our state.
We believe that the world is our mission field. We partner with individuals and organizations to spread the gospel to the ends of the Earth. Specifically, we focus on global church planting, training nationals, and orphan care. Our desire is to focus our resources, people, and finances, on 2-3 locations for an extended period of time. We believe increased focus allows us to make a greater kingdom impact.
We are committed to mobilizing and releasing people to go on short-term missions trips to partner with our missionaries on short term and long-term projects.
Currently, we financially support the Gormley family in the Philippines and their work with church planting and orphan care, the Harris family in South Africa and their work with training leaders, and the Woodard family in Pa Pau New Guinea and their work with tribal church planting, training of nationals, and the recruitment of new missionaries.
