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.

FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND MORE

Even as we transition away from the emergency food distribution work we emphasized during the pandemic, our community events still often involve food distribution alongside other activities.

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. Many of our sites also feel like community festivals, with games and other activities. So whether you need food or not, feel free to come visit us!

Upcoming Gatherings:

  • August 7

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.
