Mission and Values


For nearly 50 years, Blackhawk Ministries has existed to be a light for Jesus in Fort Wayne and around the world. Our mission is to reach and equip all people for Jesus, one relationship at a time. Being intentional about making an impact both locally and globally is crucial to us. We believe that impact starts in our own local community where God has planted us for a purpose and branches out to our state, nation, and world.Our ONE FIVE Vision is an intentional effort to reach the world.
OUR MISSION: Make Disciples. The mission of the church remains unchanged in an ever-changing world. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gave His Church the Great Commission to GO and make disciples of all nations. In Acts 1:8, Jesus specifies that our mission starts across our own streets and extends around the world. 
OUR VISION: Our One Five Vision is an intentional effort to make disciples, reaching the world for Jesus, starting with our own zip code. This vision has four foundational elements:
  1. John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
  2. 46815 Taking the Light of Jesus to dark places, starting with our own zip code
  3. 15 Taking the Light of Jesus into our 15 surrounding zipcodes
  4. 15 Taking the Light of Jesus into 15 strategic world regions

You may wonder what that looks like for you in a practical sense, so we put our mission into action in what we call “My Discipleship Journey.” My Discipleship Journey is a pathway for spiritual growth we use at Blackhawk to help people grow in their walk with Jesus.
