Mission Outreach: About the MOC and Volunteering at ACP

What is the MOC?

The mission of Mission Outreach is derived from that of the American Church in Paris which is "to bear witness by word and deed to the love of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. Our aim is to fulfill the 2nd great commandment to "love your neighbor as yourself." 

Our role in the church is the following:

  • To manage the budget allocated to missions the ACP supports
  • To increase awareness of these missions and provide opportunities for members of the congregation to get involved through: prayer, fundraising, and participation in missionary trips
  • To encourage members of the congregation to follow through a "call from God

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

There are many ways that you can give of your time, talent, or finances to support our various ministries! Here's how:
