Ministries

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. – Mark 10:45

Local Ministries

We encourage Christians to meet the needs of other Christians and unbelievers with love and humility out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others.  Our ministries are as diverse as people’s needs. We strive to serve one another through prayer, fellowship, counseling, discipleship, acts of mercy, and loving admonishment and accountability.  We teach our members to pursue the lost through opportunities in Amarillo for faithful Gospel witness to our neighbors and through organizations such as CareNet, Presbyterian Children’s Home, Faith City Mission, Christian Women’s Job Corps, and TDCJ Prison unit.

Home Missions

We participate in the work of church planting in the United States through the OPC Home Missions Committee.  In addition, we help to support our Presbytery’s regional church planting efforts.  Over a period of  five years we labored to plant a church in nearby Plainview, Texas.   However, in God’s providence, the Covenant of Grace chapel in Plainview was closed in March, 2006.  We continue to seek opportunities to plant churches in the Texas Panhandle.

Foreign Missions

We actively participate in the ministry of World Wide Outreach of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  This includes the work of the Committee on Foreign Missions. Through this participation, we help to support over a dozen missionary families laboring in Uganda, Eritrea, Haiti, Suriname, Canada, Asia, and Japan. Our presbytery has a special partnership in supporting the labors of David Okken in Uganda.

In addition to our regular support to our foreign missionaries, we participate whenever specific ministries arise, which includes helping to provide relief to needy families, deaconal needs and natural disaster victims among others.
