City on a Hill
For several years Pathways Church has partnered with City on a Hill, a faith-based nonprofit organization in the heart of Milwaukee, designed to work as a catalyst to bring transformation to individuals, families and neighborhoods in the central city.
St Louis missions trip
In May 2015, Pathways Church sent a team of 35 people to the St Louis Dream Center which is set in the heart of North St. Louis, an inner-city areas known for high crime, drugs, and gang activity, to experience what God is doing in this ministry. God has called us to be His hands and feet not only to the world, but to those in our backyard and areas of our country that are in need. While at the Dream Center, we served their team leaders by helping in the food pantry, soup kitchen, clothes closet, outreach teams, adopt a block and so much more.
Moldova Missions Trip
Moldova is a small landlocked country in Eastern Europe which declared its independence in 1991 with the collapse of communism. After years of being a closed country, Moldova is now open to the gospel. Believers meet without fear, committed young pastors are ready to be trained, and the church is experiencing new growth.
Pathways Church partnered with missionaries Troy and Heidi Darrin and sent a team to Moldova in September, 2015. While there the team did construction on several village churches between Bali and Chisinau. God has also opened the door to student and campus ministries where students are evangelized and discipled through a variety of ways such as sports, English classes, and recreational events. Our team worked alongside the Darrins in several areas of ministries.
