QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT OUR MISSION – MISSION EXPLAINED
Can you describe what you will be doing in missions?
At the heart of our mission is a desire to ignite a fire in others to fulfill the mission Christ gave to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Here is how we see it happening.
We will identify, train, equip, resource, and walk with others who are willing to live as a missionary church planter. Through an apprenticeship type of program we are able to multiply ourselves as we share our 30+ years of ministry experience with others. Instead of doing one church plant, our hope is to do multiple plants at a time as we work with and through other missionary church planters.
Our desire is to establish multiple churches in difficult situations where people often feel marginalized by the church. These are people who most likely would never walk into an established church because of various understandings they hold. They are interested in talking about God, but for different reasons are not interested in attending worship in a local church. We want to send missionaries to them so that they can discover the love of Christ.
You could say that we will be like a coach or mentor as we help others learn how to live as missionaries in our world. Then we will send them out to befriend others and experience life with them as they share the gospel message of Christ’s love.
Until we are fully appointed we will be focused for the next year or two primarily on raising funds to do the job we believe God has given to us to do. If you are interested in helping us feel free to contact us so we can share more with you about the vision.
