As the summer draws to a close I can't help but reflect on what God has done this year through Vive Church missions. This year God empowered Vive Church to send out 15 people on mission trips to Palmares and San Jose, Costa Rica as well as Houston, Texas (over $12,000). We are so blessed to be God's Hands and Feet. While in Costa Rica we saw many lives changed by the presence of the Lord, apart from that we saw God move in the most dangerous neighborhood in Costa Rica as we partnered with an amazing church there to serve the community.

Since our start in 2010 Vive Church has been committed to reaching young adults, several years ago Patrick and Bethany Hundl came to South Carolina as missionaries to USC. We have been so blessed to be able to partner with their ministry. So far in 2018 Vive Church has been able to contribute over $6,000 to the Chi Alpha Campus Ministry from firework sales.
These are just a few of the ministries that Vive Church continues to support. While your giving supports missionaries all over the world, these ministries are some that we support almost exclusively through firework sales.
