Vision begins with you
Involve your church in changing the world

 
God has given you and your church a unique role in taking his good news to the ends of the earth. But sometimes that can seem a very long way away and it would be nice to have some company during the trip.
 
We would love to help make your church as effective as possible in your mission efforts. In the near future we plan to provide a selection of suggestions on how we can share ideas and experiences together. While we're developing those ideas, here are some to consider now:

 

BE EQUIPPED

Mission posters:

Get the Word Out!:
