Missions: GlobalLocalShort Term.

At Woodside we are committed to God’s global mission. God’s heart for the nations is central to our vision for both local and global missionaries and partnerships. We want to be in step with God and “declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples” (Ps. 96:3.) Woodside has a long tradition of supporting local and foreign missions – and seeing God impact lives through the hands of His faithful people.

 Missions at Woodside is accomplished in three main ways:

Short Term Mission Teams

Do you sense God leading you to a week or two of serving Christ in another country? We provide annual trips for people of all ages to take time out of their busy lives and participate in a short term mission. Our goals are to partner with local church based efforts, experience life changing moments and train teams to have a life long link to missions. Recent trips from Woodside included such places as Ecuador, Rwanda and Magnetawan First Nation.[More]

Global Missions

We want to partner with God in building his church among all people groups. To do this, we aim to raise up long term missionaries from our church to be sent out around the world. We encourage people who are called to share the love of Christ on a long term mission and work to support, prepare and care for them. As a church, Woodside provides regular support to many individuals in full time mission work in addition to several mission organizations. Please keep in touch and encourage those serving. [More]

Local Mission Partners

We believe in helping provide for needs within our local community. We partner with several local ministries to help create real and lasting change. [More]
