We Value Mission -

Recognizing our common call to ministry, we strive to live our faith sacrificially in our community and the world in a manner that bears witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Since 1732 Moravians have reached behond their communities to share the love of Jesus in genuine and practical ways.  The following are the mission ministries of the congregation which serve the Sturgeon Bay community, our nation and the world.

Youth Missions

Since 1995 the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church has sent hundreds of high school students into mission experiences and have built their faith in Christ while serving others.  We have been pleased to offer these opportunities not only to our "Moravian" students, but to many other students from our community.  Over the years these mission experiences have transformed the lives of the participants while we have sought to bring the faith, hope and love of the Gospel to others.

Jamaica Mission


When:       Usually in early June

Whom:      High School Juniors through College Age Youth

The Jamaica Mission partnership began in 1995 when four students went to work at the Moravian Church Camp near Black River.  Over the years this partnership with "Camp Hope" has expanded to include multiple Moravian congregations in the region surrounding Black River.  The projects range from construction work at Camp Hope, repair work on Church buildings, repair work for the elderly in the community and working with the various schools in that region.  Teams are sent every other year or for specific projects at the request of our Jamaican partners.

Participate in this ministry requires team members to participate in team training as well as fund raising events.
