And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” – Matthew 28:18-20
At Heartland Church, our goal in missions is to form strategic partnerships with organizations who are able to reach people we cannot reach. By partnering with them, we provide assistance through resource and ministry. We know that if our work is to be sustained, it will happen through the viability of the local church in that region.
At the same time, our focus is to use every mission experience to equip participants for a lifetime of service to God and to personally live out the great commission. Rarely will you find an individual who has had an international, cross-cultural mission experience that will not say it radically changed their perspective of this world and of their purpose in it. Each mission experience is designed to equip participants with specific skills and provide them a larger, more complete world view.
