global mission strategy

The Global Mission Strategy is our plan to reach a lost world for Christ. As laid out by Christ in Acts 1:8 we are to go to Jerusalem, Samaria, Judea and the Uttermost parts of the earth. For us today that means we are to be focused in GOING on mission locally, state wide, nationally and around the globe. 

At Cedar Crest we are always moving in those directions and encourage you to join us. 

Use the links above or the images on the right to discover where and when we are joining God in His activity.


Opportunities to serve in Ouachita Parish are numerous. Some of these are ongoing while others are single events.

Below you will find a list of some of the missions and outreaches of Cedar Crest in our community.

Cedar Crest has been involved with numerous state mission opportunities thoughout the years.

West Bank Baptist Church - New Orleans

We are partnering with Ryan Melson, pastor of West Bank Baptist Church, a church plant in New Orleans. Our youth go at least once a year to do Backyard Bible Clubs and prayer canvassing for West Bank. We also have teams that go one weekend a month to help with their children's ministry teams.


The Heights Church - Denver, CO

Our current United States mission emphasis is located in Denver, CO. The Heights Church is a new church plant which began having weekly services on February 12, 2017. For more about The Heights Church visit their website:

GraceWorks Alaska

Once a year, we partner with GraceWorks Alaska and our team travels to Alaska to work directly with non-churched children, youth, and adults in local parks-feeding meals to the hungry, backyard Bible school, sports, games and crafts. The goal is nothing less than a multiplying, church planting Jesus Movement in Alaska. To learn more about GraceWorks Ministry, visit their website:

Resonate Church - Missoula, MT



In 2009 God gave Cedar Crest the vision to reach a people group called the Roma. You may be more familiar with the term 'Gypsies'. The Roma people are spread all throughout the planet with nowhere to call home. Since starting in Bulgaria, God has expanded our mission to include all the pastors in the Bulgarian Baptist Union and several major cities in Bulgaria. We have had the opportunity to preach and train pastors/lay leaders in Bulgaria. God is at work in Bulgaria. Will you join Him?

Honduras HOI - (Honduras Outreach, Inc.)

Each year, our teams travel to Honduras and partner with the Honduras Outreach. HOI is a Christ-centered missions organization working alongside people of developing countries who desire to implement sustainable development partnerships to create life-changing relationships between the people of developing countries and North Americans, while promoting community directed and integrated spiritual, physical, educational and economic development of men, women and children in the developing world through the promotion of dignity, mutual cooperation and self-sufficiency. 

410 Bridge - Kenya, Africa

Chembulet is a farming community situated on lush, rolling hills in the Central Rift Valley near the border of Uganda. Locals grow corn, wheat, and passion fruit. There are also a number of local start up businesses. 410 Vision: We seek to radically improve the pace and depth of growth in the spiritual and physical health of communities in the developing world by transforming the way that the body of Christ engages in healthy global missions. 410 Mission: The 410 Bridge enables the self-developing capabilities of the people we serve by mobilizing and unifying the body of Christ through holistic, redemptive, community-centered partnerships.
