Cuyahoga Valley Church is active in mission efforts in Vietnam, Indonesia, Ghana, El Salvador, Mexico, Ukraine, China, and more internationally.
But we are also a church that is very active missionally in our own region. We want to invite people to new life locally and regionally as well as globally.
One ministry that we have a growing partnership with is Building Hope in the City (BHITC), a missional ministry that has offices on West 30th Street in Cleveland. The mission of Building Hope in the City is “Restoring the city to God by developing and linking people, communities and churches.” Ministries include Church Planting and Leadership Development, The Hope Center for Refugees and Immigrants, Urban Family Learning Centers, The Open Table, and Urban Ministry Training and Engagement.
Each year, Building Hope in the City holds a Volunteer Appreciation Event where they celebrate and recognize our volunteers and acknowledge those who have gone above and beyond God’s call to serve. They also recognize ministry partners who have made a significant impact on the ministries of Building Hope.
Recently, we received an email from BHITC’s Amy Mitchell, “After speaking with the staff and receiving input from each of them, we have chosen to acknowledge CVC as this year’s Ministry Partner of the Year for your involvement with our Refugee Ministries, The Open Table, and the October Leadership Summit. We are so grateful to each of your for you commitment to His work and your service to Building Hope in the City.”
For more information on how you can be involved in these two important ministries, please reach out to our missions assistant, Dahlia Orth.
Thanks, CVC, for being sensitive to God’s call to reach out and help BHITC restore Cleveland to God by developing and linking people, communities and churches.
