The task of making disciples of all nations is not reserved for an elite few but is the task of the entire church. Every believer has a role to play in the mission of God. As we see in Acts 13, it is the role of the church to call out and send faithful messengers of the gospel:
1 Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. Acts 13:1–3 (ESV)
This is why Mercy Hill aims to be a sending church—willing to send our best and measure success by sending capacity rather than seating capacity.
On Sunday, February 12th we will highlight the areas where we have committed to send our people. Then on Monday, February 13th don’t miss our Missions Expo. The Missions Expo showcases the opportunities you have to go with us on mission in 2017 and is your next step if you desire to go for a week, a month, or longer.
