We send out prepared teams that we call GO Teams to work with our ministry partners in areas that we can be of help. This gives participants an understanding of what our partners are doing and the challenges they face in bringing Christ to people. In 2018, over 150 adults and youth participated in GO Teams around the globe and our nation. We are always looking for those who want to be part of this ministry.
We want to walk with other broken people to experience deeper life in Christ. One of the strategies in the pursuit of this aim is our Outward Mission partnerships.
We also send teams to help our ministry partners where we can. We pray for our partners. We give to fund our partners who are impacting our region, people both nearby and far away for Jesus Christ through our Great Commission Fund and our Salt & Light Fund.
In 2019, we had a faith goal to support our Outward Mission partners $140,000 for the Great Commission Fund and $35,000 for the Salt & Light Fund. These funds enable us to effectively partner with many ministries that impact the lives of numerous people within our community and around the globe.
We encourage prayer support for our ministry partners because it does make a difference. Some of the ways that we do this includes the Great Commission Women, the Wednesday Morning Prayer group, the Strategic Prayer Team, and individuals who use a photo prayer card from our outreach display, to pray for one or more of our partners.
We celebrate each year, early October and late January, by having our ministry partners share about what God is doing in our world through our investment in the lives of people.
We attempt to provide a service to our community with our annual Pet Wellness Clinic which at the same time provides funds for some of our GO Teams to serve other people.
