Before the Lord Jesus ascended to heaven, He left a very important task to His disciples to do - to go and make disciples of all nations so that worship for God from every people, tribe and tongue can exist.
Here at Sunset, we believe that it is the local church whom God has chosen to make His glory known among all peoples. It is our vision to see local churches from all people groups equipped and mobilized to make disciples among their own peoples and beyond.
Sunset Missions exists to mobilize every member of Sunset to faithfully take part in making God’s Name known to all peoples, whether in the city or in the world, so worship of Him from every nation, tribe and tongue can exist.
We believe that each person is called by God to take part in what He is doing in the world. Find out ways on how you can be involved.

2019 Short Term Mission Trips
Here at Sunset, we strive for people not to only meet and mature in Jesus, but also be missional and multiply for Him. Short Term Missions (STM) Ministry is one of the avenues we have for that and one of the ways we obey God’s command to make disciples of all nations. (Matt. 28:16-20)
Sunset’s STM Ministry is a trip of typically 7-14 days where Sunset sends a team overseas for either of these purposes:
To strengthen the local church to make disciples among their own people
To strengthen local believers to plant churches in areas where there is none
To provide meaningful support and care to our long-term cross-cultural partners
To grow our congregations heart towards missions and provide an avenue for members to assess God’s role for them in missions
STM’s are not and end in itself but a means to an end. It is a stepping stone for us to sow seeds, be cultivated, help water the seeds that other people have sown, plant new seeds so that God can make them grow. (1 Cor. 3:5-9)
