Missions

Jesus commanded his followers to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28.19) so that people “from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5.9) will one day worship joyfully before His throne. College Hill Presbyterian Church supports about twenty cross-cultural Christian workers in about a dozen different countries and the US. Though their cultural contexts and ways of serving differ widely, they all share one goal: to bring the love of God through Jesus Christ in both word and deed to people who don’t yet know of God’s redeeming love for them.

Most of our global workers have been sent out directly from CHPC, and all keep in touch with us regularly. We support them with finances, friendship, and prayer. When they visit Cincinnati, look for them in services and in the Fireside Room between services. After second service the World Mission Team hosts a potluck lunch where there is time for more relaxed fellowship, more detailed information on their work, and prayer. All are welcome! Watch the Sunday morning bulletin for details.

There are (at least) four ways God may call you to help bring the good news of Jesus to people of other cultures:

  • PRAY
    • that God will bless our cross-cultural workers with spiritual, emotional, mental, relational, and physical health.
    • that God will connect them with the people He is preparing to hear the good news of Jesus.GOc

  •  GIVE
    • hospitality, encouragement, active listening, and practical assistance during visits, and (security-sensitive) communication by letter or email between visits.
    • financially through donations to their sending agencies, and through our CHPC Global Worker Christmas Gift collection (look for red envelopes near the Fireside Room during Advent).
  • SEND
    • by encouraging other Christians to develop their spiritual gifts as you practice yours, modeling openness to God’s guidance for your own life.
    • by learning about needs and opportunities to serve in other cultures and sharing these with people who may be prepared to meet them. Watch for mission-related Formation Hour classes Sundays at 10 a.m.

Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund at College Hill Presbyterian Church was established in 1975. The principal money in this trust account is invested, and income generated by the fund is given away in the form of grants.
The Endowment Fund is managed by an independent investment company that provides annual reporting to the CHPC Trustee Administrators who are responsible for ensuring that the Fund is properly invested.

Grant Guidelines

Grants are to be used for missions or outreach with the following guidelines:

  • Aid evangelism and compassion for groups or people “beyond the walls” of CHPC
  • One time expenditures, not annual budgeted expenditures

Grant Process

The CHPC Endowment Team prayerfully reviews each application and makes recommendations to Session for approval.

Applications for grants are accepted during the month of October each year.

  • Distributions are made in February
