If you are looking for the local mission churches in your area, it is important to understand what a mission church is. If you look into it, you will probably find that there are several different local mission churches in your area. The first type of mission church that we will look at is the brand new church. Local mission churches of this type are usually sponsored by another church that is larger. The reason that they may be putting a church there is because they may see a need for another church to help serve the people. Local mission churches of this type usually perform the same duties as the larger church, only on a smaller scale. You can often find people that work in these local mission churches doing most of their work through visiting in the homes of the people that attend the church. The second type of local mission churches that you may find in your area, are literally mission specific churches. Local mission churches of this type are designed to minister to a targeted audience. One of the local mission churches that you may find in your area may be designed to minister to Spanish speaking individuals and families. Everything this type of mission church does is designed to reach their target audience. Another type of mission church that may be in your area may be centered on those that have drug or alcohol dependency problems. Again, these types of local mission churches are mission specific and they try to reach mainly that target audience.
