 Global Mission Resources

 

Be a Global Mission Church
The Be a Global Mission Church initiative can be used to propel a congregation into new activities or to affirm numerous projects already in place. Whether your next step is to pray regularly for a missionary, study globalization or plan a People-to-People group mission trip, we encourage you to make the decision to put a foot forward and take a step into world mission. Being a Global Mission Church will challenge your members to stretch toward a new level of interest in, and commitment to, God's world. Wherever your congregation fits, the Be a Global Mission Church workbook can be a new direction or milepost on a path already being traveled. Call 1-800-537-3394 and order copies of the workbook for your congregation today. Order online
