As we finish up a three week focus on partaking in our life’s mission of the Great Commission, we dive into one of the strongest tools we have to share hope with others… our stories.

We do believe in Jesus Christ simply because we were told to but because we have experienced Him as well. Testimony after testimony of how hope, power and peace through Christ have made a difference in our lives. Testimonies that serve as proof of how hope is real and can change your life as well!

For some of us, we are in the middle of building a testimony right now. We have come to places in our lives where we know we need Jesus to move but fear letting go or have other blocks in our way. Come be encouraged on what to do in those moments today to bring a testimony of change tomorrow!

As we continue to look at living a life on mission (the Great Commission), we look at a key time that Jesus sent a group of people out into the world. As we look at His heart and instructions, there is a great deal to learn that apply to our life today.

Many of us have people in our lives who do not know the Lord that are on our hearts. If we don’t, we should. Join us as we explore what we can put into place starting now to be the light in the lives of those around us.

Did you ever wish that God would just send you a letter addressing your deepest concerns and fears? Did you ever think it would be nice if He just penned you thoughts of what to do next to be able to live a life with a mission that’s more than just getting through the day?

In this study, we will be exploring some letters written doing just that from the book of Revelation! What we often times look at as something scary or just about the future has a lot to say about our here and now. We pray you will be part of this time with us as we explore truths that are right in front of us that we can grasp, adopt, and live that take this life beyond the daily grind.

What does “missional” mean? To some, it’s a term that is slapped on something within church life to make it sound cutting edge. To others, it’s a term used to distinguish themselves from churches they perceive as being social clubs.

In this message, missional living is a challenge and calling as defined in the Word within God’s plan. It’s a way of intentional living in the Christian’s life to make a difference around us and the world abroad.

Pastor Wynand DeWet from One Plus God Ministries shares from his heart, calling, and experience to call us to missional living with a passion I have not experienced in a long time. His family moved to the United States from South Africa five years ago and has a unique view into this life calling.

Take some time and invest into this message. Let your eyes be opened to some new areas of the world we live in. Be challenged to see cultures and struggles outside of our daily life. Get excited that if you have accepted Jesus as Leader and Forgiver in your life, that you are part of a massive and powerful movement of the Holy Spirit in your community and in the global community as a whole.

Recently, I received some information about a couple who are doing missions in Costa Rica that got my attention for several reasons. First they are not only from the Marion, Ohio area but Luke’s family are old friend’s of my wife’s family. Also, I understand how financially and emotionally challenging being in missions can be. It is not a life you choose but a life that chooses you by God’s calling. Their ministry is currently under a huge strain of lack of financial support and I can’t imagine how that pressure must feel.

At the time I heard about them, I was doing a message on missions at our church on missions and contacted them to put together a video about what they have going on. As I watched the video and saw first hand the work they are doing, I was really taken by the multiple areas God is using them. One thing that really excited me was seeing them pull up in a SUV, open the back gate, and start feeding the people lining up from the streets for free food. While this is going on, Luke is standing and reading the Bible out loud as they minister to the spiritual and physical needs of those they serve.

OK, just a quick note. The Marion Star (our local paper) was kind enough to do a story about the mission team being in. Though I was a little “misquoted”, Kirk always does a great job with all the information he gets in the interviews.

If you’re interested, you can see it here.
