At Ashland Community Church, taking the gospel to the ends of the earth is part of our DNA. We believe are commissioned as a church to take the gospel to our families, communities, country, and to all the world (Matthew 28:19-20). We take this mission very seriously.
Local International Ministry
Ashland seeks to minister to immigrants and refugees in our local community. We are committed to helping resettle families, show radical gospel hospitality, and evangelize internationals from all over the world who have settled in the greater Louisville area.
Resettling Refugee Families
Louisville has accepted and become the home of thousands of refugees. The nations have come to us! Ashland welcomes and shows hospitality to these internationals.
Every year, Ashland invites international families for a Thanksgiving feast where we have the opportunity to share our thankfulness to Christ in the gospel through food, games, fellowship, and testimony.
Ashland holds events and visits with refugee families in the hopes of establishing true friendships so that the gospel may be evident through hospitality.
Ashland sends teams from our church on short term trips to aid in church planting and gospel efforts around the world.
Ashland’s primary goal in missions is to plant churches in places where people are unengaged and unreached with the gospel. We always seek to send missionaries from our congregation to the ends of the earth for lifelong mission in another culture with the hope of seeing churches planted and thriving from every tribe, tongue, and nation.
Ashland is committed to prayer for the gospel to reach every tribe, tongue, and nation. Prayer and the Word is the means by which God energizes His people to pursue missions. We pray during our worship services each week and we also set aside three special nights a year we call “Ends of the Earth Night”. These nights are specially designated for hearing updates of how God is taking the gospel, through the church, to the ends of the earth. We then join together in prayer for the nations to be reached with the gospel.
