St. James’s has so many valuable friends all over the world. Our emphasis is on long-term relationships maintained by annual short-term missions to build, heal and grow. St. James’s has a rich history of domestic and international mission trips. Each year, we send 8-10 mission teams out to share God’s love through service. Most mission trips do not require special skills – just willing hands and a compassionate heart!
The cost of each mission depends on the number registered and the location. For more information, contact the leader of each trip or contact Missions Committee Chair Andy Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. Register early, as team sizes are limited. For general information on the St. James’s Missions program, contact Missions Committee Chair Andy Smith at email@example.com. Andy can also explain the new Passport to Missions program that supports new missioners.
A limited number of scholarships for missions are available. The Passport to Missions program will make a grant for a new missioner up to half of the mission cost. Other scholarships are considered on a case-by-case basis. To request a partial or full scholarship, call The Rev. John McCard (804)355-1779, ext. 318. All scholarship requests are confidential.
