GLOBAL MISSION

Hilmar Covenant takes Christ’s “Great Commission” to “go and make disciples of all nations” very seriously! Since the very beginning of our existence, our congregation has sent both full time and short term missionaries to countries all around the world.  


In recent years, we have developed a full and rich ministry of global outreach. Currently, we take a group of students and adults to Mexico every summer through YUGO Ministries, serving with our “sister church” in the Tijuana colonia of Francisco Villa. We also lead one other cross cultural mission trips annually, including trips to Ecuador, Brazil, Kenya, China, and India.  


Sometimes global missions can actually happen at home. In 2012, 2013 and 2014 we partnered with “Feed My Starving Children” to hand pack meals for hungry kids around the world. Instead of spending money on travel and personnel, we raised funds to bring Mobile Pack food packing events to our community, providing 676,512 meals that will feed 1852 children a fully nutritious meal every day for an entire year!

  • Roy & Aleta Danforth (Central African Republic)
  • Paul & Sheryl Noren (Africa)
  • Don & Lillian Dwight (Taiwan)
  • Harvey Lundquist (Alaska)Todd & Carrie Minturn (Intervarsity – Fresno, CA)
  • Ken & Adrienne Satterberg (France)
  • Elin Wickstrom (Chad)

LOCAL MISSION

Hilmar Covenant has always invested much of its time and resources in this community. Hilmar Christian Children’s Center, Hilmar Helping Hands, serving food to the homeless through the Turlock Gospel Mission dinners, Senior Brown Bags, adopt-a-highway on Lander Avenue, “Fit ‘n Free” aerobics, English classes for Spanish speakers, summer Vacation Bible School for children, WIC, Hilmar High School chaplaincy, and participation in “Love Hilmar” events are just some of the ways our congregation seeks to be a blessing to our community. Join us as we reach out to share the love and compassion of Jesus in tangible ways to Hilmar!
