global outreach

At Church of the Saviour, we believe in not only serving our community but serving our world. Our focus is to mobilize the church to obey Jesus’ last command to make disciples of all nations. We desire for God to receive the worship that He deserves and want to see people from every nation worshiping Jesus. Learn more about our beliefs here.

COS members are committed to reciprocal friendships and holistic discipleship with the refugee population in our surrounding area. If you are interested in helping be a resource and serving as the hands and feet of Jesus in this way, please contact our Missions Leadership Team at goct@coswayne.org.

International Student Ministry

We serve the practical needs of international students in the university campuses in our local area and connect them to the various ministries of the church. Our yearly International Students day event mobilizes the whole church to bless students from around the globe with great fellowship and donated household items and furniture. Throughout the year members host and connect with students in various ways. For more information contact haigs@coswayne.org.

Short-term missions

We have a rich legacy of teams visiting and serving various fields around the world. We are working on developing two to three yearly strategic short term missions trips which provide members the experience and opportunity and also tangibly help advance God's worldwide mission. If you are interested in short-term missions contact haigs@coswayne.org.
