As we as a church move forward in our vision of Missions our goal has got to be centered on the mandate of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40) and Acts 1:8. That we would be willing, trained, equipped and expectant to GO, wherever and whenever Christ would open the door.
In order for us as a church to be trained and equipped to minister to those in other lands we must begin here close to home. We want to put together “Stage 1” mission opportunities that would allow a very wide door for any Emmanuel Missionary to participate. These trips will be partnering with existing para ministry in and around our state and community.
Out first “Stage 1” mission opportunity will be this Summer in Tulsa and we are looking for every member of Emmanuel to go, supply, and/or pray. Our Tulsa Mission Trip is August 3rd-6th and will cost $100 for “Going” Missionaries. We will also be looking for “Supply” Missionaries to help with equipment, supplies and financially as well as “Praying” Missionaries that will begin praying even now for our team. What part can you play this summer as we GO, together?
