From its early beginnings, Leighton Church has been very mission-minded. One of the first missionaries the church supported was Dr. McBride who served in Sierra Leone. Since those days, we have supported many missionaries and mission organizations. We have also seen several from our congregation actually become missionaries to various parts of the world.
Today we support 15 missionary families around the world and 10 mission organizations through Faith Promise, which is a pledge between an individual and God to support missions through the coming year over and above their tithe.
People in the following countries are touched by missionaries supported through Faith Promise.

November 2018 – Make a difference this Christmas season in the life of a child who has a mom or dad in prison. The Angel Tree, located in the Leighton Church Lobby starting November 18th, will be filled with “angels” or names of children spending Christmas without their parent. Select the name of a child/children and purchase the suggested gift listed on the tag. Return the wrapped gift to the tree by December 16th. Gifts will be delivered to the children the week before Christmas.
Throughout the month of January 2019, missionaries and mission projects supported by the people of Leighton Church will be featured. Each Sunday in January will have a different missionary and/or organization featured with guest speakers, video presentations, and mission focused sermons.
The month concludes with everyone having an opportunity to pledge support for the Faith Promise missions ministry of Leighton Church. The mission team is providing a “thank you” dinner on Sunday, January 27th for everyone to enjoy.
