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.

God has equipped each believer with talents and gifts to be His witness in the world. In Local Outreach, we provide a variety of opportunities for church members to serve in different communities, from children’s programming to box packing, as we build on the foundation and connections MBC created during the pandemic.  We recognize that we can’t meaningfully make disciples in a community if we are there only a few times a year, so we encourage you to join us as we establish and maintain an ongoing presence throughout our area.

To get connected to Local Outreach and find out about all of the different ways to serve, please sign up for our main eNews here. We are so glad you are here!
