Mission Partners

We believe that the Great Commission is a command for all Jesus followers to take part in making disciples among all nations. The way we can do that is either by going or sending. We have the privilege of taking part in sending our partners through our prayers.

Would you join us in consistently praying for the Lord to make His name known through our partners? 

Romans 10:14-15 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are SENT? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
