Our Heart is Global

What’s My Role?


Today, 42% of the world has no access to the Gospel. That means the chance of them meeting a Christian, getting access to scripture or finding a church is almost minuscule. Jesus has commissioned us–you and me–to take the Good News of His rescue plan to them.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:19-20

The unreached nations need our prayers. Our missionaries need our prayers and our financial support. Our international neighbors and co-workers need our friendship and witness. We ALL have a role in fulfilling the Great Commission.

Send

Sending is a financial sacrifice and a choice to live on less to give more. To send means to provide financial support to our missionaries, to help pay for the projects they want to do to reach the unreached, to pay for the Bible to be translated into the 5,500+ languages which don’t have the Scriptures yet, and to help start churches in unreached areas. As senders, we ask God to help us steward the resources He has given us with the greatest measure of His Wisdom.

Welcome

We are called to love our neighbors and welcome immigrants from countries where the Gospel is not freely preached. This means being kind to those who look, speak and dress differently than we do, developing friendships with people of different ethnic backgrounds and sharing Jesus with them. We must humble ourselves, risk embarrassment and invest time into making meaningful connections.

Mobilize

To mobilize means to help others discover their role in the Great Commission. Humbly share with others the need to reach those who have not heard about Jesus’ love and come alongside and encourage those who are obeying God in their journey overseas. Being a mobilizer requires a sacrifice of time, comfort and convenience.
