Mission Partners

Supporting mission efforts everywhere!

DPC supports mission efforts locally, regionally, nationally, and worldwide that focus on basic human needs including food, water, shelter, education, and safety. This support has many facets, including the distribution of funds to numerous worthwhile organizations. As responsible stewards, the mission committee carefully investigates each organization that requests funding from DPC to assess that each organization is fiscally responsible and truly serves Christ and those in need. In addition, our congregation is committed to participating in a variety of mission activities that impact those in need, both locally and around the world.

A list of the organizations with which DPC currently partners can be found below.

These packets contain ingredients developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition.  Volunteers hand-pack the meals.  The meals are then donated to FMSC food partners around the world.  The regions that benefit from FMSC include the Caribbean, North and Central America, the Middle East, Asia, South America, Europe and Africa.  Funding sources come from individuals, churches, foundations and corporations.
