AT THE CORE OF OUR IDENTITY AS THE CHURCH is our call to proclaim and demonstrate God’s glory to the world: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9) This call saturates the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Though our church is undeniably called to engage in God’s global mission, Scripture does not specify how. Should we host a food pantry or support an orphanage? Should we send missionaries to Sudan or Siberia? Decisions like these must be made prayerfully within a well-defined set of biblical and strategic parameters. The more we learn about missions, both individually and corporately, the wiser and better our missions investments will be.
“Unreached Within Reach”
Tuesdays, January 17 - March 7, 7:30-9 PM, Spurgeon Room
This eight-week practicum led by trainers from Global Gates is designed to encourage and equip believers to share the gospel with unreached peoples living in our county. Through classroom sessions and trips into the community, you will learn how to recognize the cultural and spiritual values of international neighbors and form meaningful cross-cultural friendships. Assignments focus more on application than reading.
