“Go therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Mapleview Church also discretely supports a few missionaries in countries in the Middle East and Asia where it is dangerous and life-threatening to publicly identify oneself as a Christian missionary.
Pacific Church Network is a partnership of many ethnically and culturally diverse churches who work together to strengthen and establish churches to influence their world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. PCN, with churches in Southern California, Hawaii, Guam and Seattle, is part of a national organization of approximately 1,000 churches called CBAmerica, and is actively planting churches.
