Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

– Matthew 9:37-38

Missions at UBC

At UBC, our desire is to engage unreached people with the gospel both locally and globally. And because God has designed his church to be the vehicle for spreading the gospel, we specifically desire to support missions work that is aimed at planting healthy local churches. All of this work, in the end, is aimed at increasing the worship of God through the praise of His glory in the hearts of His people.
