Missions

Part of the mission statement of Malvern Hill is "Change the world." Our church takes the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16-20 and the Acts 1:8 mission mandate seriously. We are actively seeking to find ways to impact our community, state, nation, and the world through mission efforts. On this page, you can find information on the current mission efforts of our church.


For more information on how to get involved in the mission activities of Malvern Hill, contact Adam Whiteside, our Pastor of Students and Missions.

Latvia missions

The Tolbert family has answered the call to "GO" and serve as missionaries to Latvia through the International Mission Board since 2017. They continue to serve faithfully there, and it is the desire of our church to support them with a mission team this summer. Of course, world events could complicate any plans, but we will make every effort to send a small team to Riga, Latvia this summer to help facilitate a Bible School, minister to the Tolberts, and perhaps even aid in ministry to refugees displaced by the invasion of Ukraine.


Please be in prayer for our missionaries in Latvia and for our efforts to make a mission trip to Latvia a reality. Here are specific ways you can pray for the Tolberts, for Latvia, and for our upcoming mission trip.


You can follow the journey of the Tolbert family by subscribing to their blog thetolbertfamily.com and you can communicate with them via email at prayer@thetolbertfamily.com.


Malvern Hill joyfully supports this family as their sending church. Please join us in supporting them with your prayers and check back here frequently for updates on other ways you can support them.


Our church is building an on-the-ground partnership with the Tolberts to send ministry assist teams to Latvia.

Edinburgh, Scotland

For more than a decade now, Malvern Hill has maintained a partnership with the Heralds Trust ministry in Edinburgh, Scotland. Through that partnership, more than twenty people from our church have traveled to Scotland to serve with the Heralds Trust.


The Heralds Trust began in the 1950s with a group of young Christians who formed a band to play Christian music. Since that time, the Heralds Trust has spend most of its ministry as a proclamation evangelism ministry focused on street evangelism, crusades, and evangelism training. In recent years, the Heralds Trust has also begun to focus attention on church planting and discipleship.


A mission trip to Scotland could include: evangelism training, street evangelism in Edinburgh, church strengthening at a church plant, ministry in a local school or youth center, tours of Edinburgh, neighborhood canvasing, and/or prayer walking.


Whether you participate in a Scotland mission trip or not, we encourage you to pray for Scotland and the Heralds Trust.

Refugee Ministries

ESL

The Ukrainian ESL ministry began as an IMB ministry where we, along with other people within the US, have the opportunity to teach Ukrainians English as a second language through an online platform. While we are committed to our role in teaching English, it is simply a tool we’ve been given to share the hope within us. We are steadfast in our commitment to speak the truth of the gospel in every opportunity given. We are building relationships to let them know they are not alone, they are cared for, and there is a hope within us they too can know. 

There is a need for more volunteers (teaching and non-teaching roles). 

  • Teachers
  • Substitutes
  • Administrative (behind the scenes) volunteers

  • assisting in providing furnishings and other staples to allow for ease of transition
  • helping them find employment
  • assisting in transportation to and from day-to-day activities such as doctor's appointments, grocery trips, or library visits

Family Mission Trips

Malvern Hill plans a Family Mission Trip each summer. These trips are designed for the entire family. We believe that it is important for families to learn to do ministry together and to serve together on the mission field.


Family Mission Trips are designed to be affordable with opportunities for each person in the family to have a place to serve. Service opportunities might be backyard bible clubs, construction and clean-up, nursing home ministry, and community mission engagement.


Our Family Mission Trips have gone to Clarkston, GA and Cleveland, TN.
