Reaching our city

We glorify God by making disciples and multiplying churches in Greater Washington, D.C. Much of our disciple-making in the D.C. area occurs through our members’ personal witness in their offices, schools, and neighborhoods. But we also unite together in structured outreach to make disciples and multiply churches in our communities.

Assist Pregnancy Resource Center

Assist Pregnancy Center’s mission to promote life through Christ to those vulnerable to abortion. Assist Pregnancy Center clients and their partners are offered free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and counseling, they are taught the truth about abortion, and they are provided with real help and hope for their future.  The ultimate hope is that these women and men can come to know the love of Christ and the hope found in Him through the work of Assist. MBC Arlington supports APC by preparing quarterly newsletter mailings, participating in the annual Walk Run Ride for Life, attending the annual fundraising banquet, and adopting baby showers. Providing this support allows them to devote more time and resources to caring directly for clients.

Drew Elementary

We seek opportunities to partner with and serve at Drew Elementary, a Title I school in the Green Valley neighborhood of Arlington, VA.  We hold annual events and participate in an ongoing mentoring and reading buddy program.  We are building a ministry to serve the families of students at Drew Elementary school and share with them the love and salvation of Jesus Christ.

PureJOY

Pure J.O.Y. is a ministry that visits the residents of local nursing homes every second Saturday of the month to share God’s love. We seek to demonstrate that they are beautiful and treasured through simple manicures, playing games, and conversation. We work for the opportunity to share with them the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Men, women, whole families, and Church Groups serve together in this ministry.

Church Planting

In pursuit of church multiplication, we partner closely with New City Network (NCN) to train and mobilize church planters in the D.C. area and among all nations. We praise God for over 55 churches planted so far in D.C. and around the world through this partnership.

We understand that God’s purpose for D.C. and the nations is not just for MBC to grow larger and larger but for thousands of churches to make disciples and multiply. That’s why we partner with the North American Mission Board (NAMB) through NCN to plant like-minded and like-hearted churches all over D.C. and among all nations.

FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND MORE

If you are in need, you’re welcome to join us at any of the events below, where we will be giving out boxes of food on a first-come, first-served basis.
