Missions is a way of life. Every believer is called to participate in the mission of making Jesus' name fully known. Being a "missionary" is first and foremost something you are more than something you do. At the same time, living missionally means letting who you are flow out in how you live!
At Pinelake, there are many opportunities to grow as followers of Jesus and to live out your missionary passion.
Up to two weeks
Here at Pinelake, we want to give you every opportunity to get involved in actively going on mission. Whether it’s in your own backyard or around the world, we offer several different ways for you to be involved for one day or up to two weeks.
Two weeks to two years

SEND>Pinelake Sending process for missionaries
Our SEND>Pinelake process provides training, experiences and coaching to prepare those who are pursuing a call to long-term, cross-cultural missions.
We love our community and want to bless our neighbors by being the hands and feet of Jesus. A number of Pinelake partners share the hope of Jesus with the people living in our cities. You can be a part of serving with these partners regularly.
The vision of our church is to see Mississippi changed one Life Change Story at a time. We engage our state by working with partnerships in our capital city, Jackson, and in the Mississippi Delta. We also serve alongside our church planters across the state.
In March of 2017 during the Making Room Launch, our pastor, Chip Henderson, led us toward expanding our ministry vision to include those who live in the Mississippi Delta, a region known for hardship. The missions team here is guiding this effort as we partner with local organizations like But God Ministries to bring hope to the Delta.
We engage our country through church planting. Pinelake seeks to be a disciple-making church by being a multiplying church. One of the most effective methods for multiplying is through the planting of new churches.
From partnering with one of our church planters to being a part of our church planting residency, there are opportunities for you to engage our country.
Pinelake works with missionaries and churches around the world to engage in mission work of all kinds.
The objective of global missions at Pinelake is two-fold. We want to be part of establishing the church and raising up disciples who become disciple-makers themselves. That means we send missionaries and teams to places in the world where people have little-to-no knowledge of Jesus Christ.
We also encourage and strengthen churches where they already exist. Pinelake is committed to disciple-making and life-change alongside the existing church in those places.
Pinelake is serving in dozens of countries on five continents. These missionaries were once sitting in our worship gatherings, and the Lord called them to go. Some are called to go for a long time, others are called only for a season. We believe that all are called to go, and some must go far.
