Missions

Welcome to LC3 Missions. 


God is always working to extend the message of His salvation to the ends of the earth. Graciously, He has allowed LC3 to participate with Him in this mission. This church has been a solid presence in local and overseas missions for years, and now is expanding its reach into new areas around the world, providing new ways for the LC3 family to be involved.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER

The Neighborhood Center’s mission is to connect LC3 with the Lakewood community to share the love of Christ, support community, and build connections. Within Lakewood, we seek to build community, empower people, and meet needs. We equip our congregation to get to know our neighbors and find opportunities to share the love of Christ in our community interactions.

Our Strategic Focuses

  • Adoption of Unreached peoples

    The traditional church missions approach is to support several missionaries around the globe, without much involvement from the congregation. This is a “shotgun” approach. A more recent and highly effective missions strategy is to adopt an unreached people group or other strategic focus, and pour constant congregational prayer, education for all ages, partnerships, support, short-term trips, and long-term missionaries into that focus people group or community. This “rifle approach,” in turn, inspires the entire congregation to get more active in missions, including that of their own neighborhoods and workplaces.


    The Tam@jaq (2008)  & Ful@ni (2021) People of Niger – Through prayer and research LC3 identified a movement of God among the unreached Tam@jaq  and Ful@ni people of Niger. We formed a primary partnership with SIM, a church planting mission working with Tam@jaq. Over a decade of this strategic mission focus we have sent, supported, funded, networked, prayed, and praised God in countless forms. We eagerly anticipate what God has in store for the next 10 years.



    People Groups of D@gestan, 2018 – In 2018 we launched our second strategic focus, which aims in the opposite end of the 10/40 Window, in the D@gestan region. Our adopted three proximate unreached people groups in this area are the K-umyk, @kkin, and Nog@i. Pray for breakthrough among these extremely difficult groups to reach.


  • Local
