A Heart for Missions

The East White Oak Bible Church missions program exists to glorify God by fulfilling the great commission to make disciples of Jesus Christ in all the world. We pursue this mandate by evangelizing unreached peoples and establishing national churches where they do not exist, and strengthening national churches where they do exist.”

Young Life of McLean County


East White Oak has a history of developing strong relationships with missionaries and supporting their work. Historically, about 30% of all giving is devoted to missions. East White Oak has a fantastic family of mission­aries who are doing great works for the glory of God, here in the US and abroad.

As we re-evaluated our priorities in 2016, we realized that only two of our missionaries were directly involved in ministry to unreached people groups and only four of our missionaries were directly involved in theological education. In order to emphasize these areas, we have changed our focus and shifted our priorities in accepting NEW missionaries to the East White Oak family.

Read about our Missionary Focus


The MCMP is intended to serve as a time of contemplation, prayer, preparation and of discerning God’s will for one who is considering cross-cultural missions.  It is geared toward the individual or family that would desire East White Oak Bible Church to be their Sending Church. For more information contact the church office, [email protected].

November Missions Conferences

Each November we set aside time to focus on missions as a church. Our conferences include sessions with our supported missionaries, special events, and conference speakers. Explore past conferences to learn more about missions at East White Oak.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
