Missions at COA is focused on extending the Kingdom of God through the proclamation of the Gospel and training in the way of Jesus. Missions is pastored by Haig Shishmanian, who focuses on coaching, mentoring, and equipping people to pursue God's call and mission in their lives. Missions is accomplished through the gifts and strengths of COA Members.
COA invests in financially giving toward ministries around the world involved in work that our family wishes we could be involved in but are limited in by geography!
Projects that contribute toward the mission of extending the Kingdom in our area are planned by the Missions Committee (including Local Charity and Evangelism) which meets on a monthly basis to prayerfully plan service, charity, and fundraising projects, and is overseen by Pastor Daniel and Haig.
