Mission Arlington

People are coloring outside the lines of traditional church work to take the gospel one person at a time to the city of Arlington. Followers of Jesus from across denominational boundaries are hard at work gathering people for Bible studies in apartment club houses, mobile homes, and neighborhoods — wherever anyone is interested. Without professional seminary degrees and armed only with the truth of John 3:16, these ordinary men and women become pastors and club houses become sanctuaries. Make an impact in your community by volunteering your time. For more information contact Mission Arlington at 817-277-6620 or www.missionarlington.org/joinin/volunteer/.

Backpack Ministry

Our Backpack ministry helps over 100 kids in the Arlington School System by providing them with food each week. Children are supplied a bag of food each Friday afternoon.  These food items provide nutrition to children that might not get food over the weekend. Will you help us by picking up large-count individual sizes of the following items: Mac and cheese, fruit cups, Granola Bars, oatmeal, small boxes of cereal, cereal bars, tuna w/crackers, pudding cups, or salty snacks.  You can make a difference in children’s lives.

 

Southeast Asia

LABC has been a partner with a local university over the last decade.  Each year, we send teams of students and adults to spend time with their students in a cross-cultural exchange.  These students take Chinese while building relationships with other college students and faculty.  We have also had the privilege of placing two full time employees in the same region.  There are short-term and long-term expressions of ministry in this area. For more information, please contact Pam Mason at pam.mason@labc.com.

 

Cuba

We are working with the Nacional Evangelico Seminario to minister to the underground church in Cuba.  Our church is actively involved in developing this seminary’s brand new building in Havana, Cuba.  We take several trips each year to encourage Cuban believers, teach local Cuban pastors, and work with various other groups (i.e. sports, music). For more information, please contact Pam Mason at pam.mason@labc.com.
