Becoming a Missionary
We don’t try to accomplish the Great Commission by human efforts. God calls us be his witnesses by the power of the Holy Spirit. We go to our Jerusalem (our city), our Judea ( our state), our Samaria (our nation or near neighbors) and to the ends of the earth (in all the world). What are you doing as a Christian to be a witness for Christ? What is your church doing? If you want to be a missionary and share the gospel of Christ you must start where you are now.
Your church’s mission sending agency, Global Strategy, is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission so world evangelism and discipleship are our primary focus. We do this by sending missionaries. We do this by resourcing global ministry through funds, personnel, and other resources. We also do this by networking with other interdependent partners- other mission groups, churches, para church organization in ministry with the church around the world. Global Missions is eager to partner with you and your church to help you be faithful to the Great Commission that God has given to all believers.
