The Global Outreach (GO) Team is fully committed to engaging the congregation to follow God’s passion for spreading His glory throughout the world, from next door to the ends of the earth. Our vision is to promote a missions-minded culture within the church body that is committed to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ through prayer, encouragement, and the training and sending of missionaries. These efforts include any endeavor beyond the local church body to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ by making disciples and relating to the totality of human need: spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual.
It is the heart of the GO Team to encourage every member of the congregation to be involved in missions through one or more of the following ways:
Pray: If you are willing to intercede for our missionaries as well as the lost they are trying to reach, then join us for an hour of prayer every first and third Tuesday at 7:14pm (see 2 Chronicles 7:14) in the Bride's Room (Room 211). We read over the current requests from Hillside missionaries and spend time bringing those praises and requests before the Lord. On the second Tuesday, we pray for the persecuted church.
Send: Each member can support missionaries spiritually, financially, and emotionally during their term of service. We are also seeking people who are willing to be involved personally, whether in local ministries such as Farm Drive or as missionaries. The Team is committed to mentoring, equipping, and sending our own members.
Care: People can be involved through practical assistance to missionaries and their families while they are on home assignments. This can include housing and car needs, inviting them into your home for a meal, assistance in finding medical and other services, and education for their children.
