Plant More Churches ~ Reach the nations

We are thankful to partner with several different missionaries, church planters and ministry organization to see more people reached with the good news of Jesus Christ.

  • Short term missions opportunities

    Each year The Orchard Church sends out short-term missions teams to serve others in locations around the United States and oversees.

    Previous teams have served domestically in the Appalachia region of West Virginia, A Native American Reservation in South Dakota, Tornado Relief in Washington, IL.  

    We also maintain a close ministry partnership in Minotre, Haiti and regularly send teams to minister there.  

    If you are interested in learning more about serving on one of our mission teams, we'd love to talk to you!
