Missions & community Care

At Mountain View, our heart is to share God's amazing love in our city and around the world.  

We do regular mission trips abroad as well as care for people in our own community.

Mexico: Rancho Santa Marta

Rancho Santa Marta is a home for children and a special education school for the rural area of San Vicente, Baja California, Mexico.  The home is located 60 miles south of Ensenada and 130 miles south of San Diego.  Mountain View has had the privilege of developing relationships with the staff and children at this orphanage.  Every year our adult work parties have the life-changing experience of the Mexican culture while they serve the children and their home.  Click here for more information about our partnership with Rancho Santa Marta.

Mexico: Home Construction

Every other year our high school youth group travels to the outskirts of Tijuana, Mexico where they build houses for families in need. To date they have built 18 homes.  Click here for more information about our next trip, or contact Pastor Aaron Anderson.

The dates for the next trip are March 19 - 26, 2022.

Let us know if you would like to come along and serve as a cook, medic, translator, builder, or encourager to the students!

Oikos (Household of faith)

Oikos was created to impact AIDS/HIV orphans in Kenya.  Rather than place orphaned children in an orphanage, the idea of Oikos is for the local family members to rally around the orphans.  As families choose to take the children into their homes, Oikos (and the partner organizations) supply the family with goods that will allow them to take care of their new larger family.  In this way the orphans grow up in a loving family atmosphere and they have a better chance at a bright future. 

Mountain View has had the chance to visit a village where Oikos is currently involved providing school clothes, food, and essentials to a home with four boys.  Funds have also been raised toward the drilling of a well for the Hope Station -- a place that provides food, clothing, education, and social activities.

Backback Buddies

Through our Backpack Buddies program, MVCC serves families at Tumwata Middle School (previously known as Ogden Middle School) by providing food to those who might not have enough to eat on the weekends. If you are interested in being a part of this ministry in our community you can LEARN MORE HERE.

Because People Matter

We are privileged to partner with BPM in their efforts to meet the needs of people in the Portland inner city.  Their humanitarian services include Night Strike, Transformation Trips, BTown Kids, and First Door.  We support BPM in a variety of ways including volunteering, donating blankets & hygiene products, as well as giving funds to help 30+ kids go to camp every summer.
