Mission of the Month

The Sending Place

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few, pray therefore the Lord of the harvest  to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.                          Luke 10:2,3

The Sending Place exists to help the individual believer and entire congregations be personally involved in declaring God’s glory to the nations. The Sending Place recruits willing servants from all over the country to be obedient “goers,” and then trains them for five months, two Saturdays per month, before they are sent overseas in teams to serve the needs of the host ministries in such places as Brazil, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, the Ukraine, Ghana, China, Indonesia, etc. The actual short-term mission trips last around 2-3 weeks at a time. So almost everyone, from age 18 on up, can do this kind of mission work.

The Bible makes it clear that the mission of preaching the gospel to every creature is to be the main focus of ALL people who are followers of Jesus Christ. For those people who are not “going” right now, you can be “senders” by providing finances, prayers, encouragement, and support to those who are going.
