Gathering. Preparing. Sending.
Our mission follows the pattern of Jesus’ ministry while here on earth. Jesus called and gathered people to himself, from those who would become His closest followers—the disciples—to the crowds of thousands who surrounded Him wherever He went.
As the crowds gathered around Him, He then taught them about God’s kingdom and how to live in it as well as preparing them for the ministry He would pass on to them after His resurrection.
Finally, Jesus sent His followers, those whom He had gathered and prepared, out into the world to share the message and hope of the His gospel—the good news of reconciliation to God through Jesus Christ.
