G.O. Team Quarterly Prayer Meeting

A few weeks ago, we had our quarterly prayer meeting in the Fireside room.  If you were unable to join us, please consider praying on your own time or inviting others to join you in lifting up these requests before the Lord.

Purpose of our Global Outreach Efforts

It is our prayer that God would accomplish his purposes in and through us.  That he would strengthen our hearts in the desire to carry out this objective and equip us to carry it out, according to his good will.  And that he would knit our hearts together with those involved in these ministries and show us how to better love and serve them.


We are committed to the preparing and sending of people that are seeking the Lord to enable them to live and proclaim the gospel with authenticity and passion.  The local church is called by God to go, make disciples, teach, and baptize, all to the glory and praise of God.  We desire to play an active role in the preparation and sending of global outreach workers. It is our firm belief that there should be a strong tie between the local church and the outreach field.
