Getting Involved in Missions
The great commission
reveals that mission is the heartbeat of Christ and His desire is
that His love will be spread among all tribes and Nations. To
accomplish this, there is need for all believers in Christ to get
involved in this great task and thereby become an obedient (child)
to their Master (Jesus Christ). . As a denominational mission
agency, our goal and aspiration is to see that the Gospel of Christ
reaches all tribes and Nations with our beliefs and practices which
are founded on New Testament teachings and practices. These, we must
come together to achieve and by His grace, we are able to possess
all lands for Him. We are trusting God for men and women of (this)
like passion to join God at work whether through praying, going,
or giving to this mission work.
Types of Involvement:
a. General Involvement: This is a way by which
individual or group partnering get involved through regular giving,
praying or going to support the mission works on the field. The
praying can be done directly through joining our Mission Prayer
Networks that come up every Thursday and Saturday of the Month or
indirectly by getting our Mission prayer concerns on our quarterly
News letter. The going for mission is space way by which our
partners get involved by going to the field on a short term basis to
use their God given talents (to profit with Mission Volunteer).
b. Specific Involvement: In this, our partners whether
individual or group embark on a specific project such as adopting
one or more Missionaries for prayer and financial support, adopting
a newly planted indigenous Church (by either buying of land,
building a Church structure, payment of the Pastor salary or
equipping the Church with instruments, training an indigene that has
leadership calling in our school of mission or college of Theology,
sinking of bore holes or wells in areas that suffer such needs,
building of clinics in medically disadvantaged areas and many other
projects that will enhance reaching the unreached for Christ. Such
projects are supervised by the Board and regular information is
given to the partner or the partner paying a visit to such project
c. Mission Partnering: This involves partnering with a
mission minded local Church, Association, Conference or organization
based on round table agreement on what and how the mission
activities will be done on the mission field. The supervision of
such projects are done together with the partners.
