Spreading the hope of the Gospel here, near and far

It is our resolve to invest a greater percentage of our time, our lives, our knowledge and our resources to obey the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. We are determined to use our influence as a local church to ensure that the gospel is communicated across people groups, to ensure that disciples are made and to ensure that His worldwide Kingdom is advanced to the global glory of God.

Global Fingerprints

The Compass Church is partnering with Global Fingerprints this summer. GlobalFingerprints is the child sponsorship ministry of ReachGlobal, partnering with national churches around the world to send children to school and help care for their physical, spiritual and emotional needs.

There are two opportunities to support kids through Global Fingerprints.

  • By giving a one-time gift, you can help Students in Haiti attend a summer camp. The summer camp launches the discipleship program for the year, and is a fun opportunity for these students!
  • Sponsor a child from the Global Fingerprints program in West Bengal, India. Children in the program are able to go to school, receive the food and healthcare they need, and learn about God's love for them. (Sponsorship is $35/month).
