Global Engagement

We believe that as a Christian community being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can transform our worlds in Jesus’ name through engaging the people of nations around the world. Our call in global ministries is to come alongside our partnerships and family missionaries by the giving of our time, talents and treasures to God’s mission in the world.


Christ Memorial is excited to offer trips over the coming months where you can get involved in mission, both stateside and abroad. For more information on any of these trips, please contact Tonya Tolsma at

Diaconal Board

The Purpose of the Diaconal Boards is to encourage, resource, and support the congregation as it brings Jesus Christ in word and deed to the people in this community and around the world.

The Diaconal Ministries Board is to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism, discipling, church planting, church development, and training/equipping of Christian leadership.  We recognize the importance of meeting physical needs while carrying on any of these ministries, in accordance with Christ’s Great Commandment (Matthew 22:35-40).
