Living on Mission
Each of us are called to live our daily lives “on mission.” Every day, our God is on mission to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Our aim is to join God in this mission wherever He has placed us. We do this by sending and supporting missionaries (or “co-laborers”) and by shining light and sharing the gospel with family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. who don’t yet know Jesus.
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers” (Matt. 9:37-38). Before sending out His disciples to share the gospel, Jesus teaches them to start with prayer. God’s Mission is too hard for us. He must give us the love, boldness, and discernment we need. We plant and water, but God gives the growth. He must go before us. We must start with prayer.
As a church, we partner with 20+ co-laborers (or missionaries) spanning 4 continents. Many are represented in the map below. It is our privilege to engage in “partnership with [them] in giving and receiving” (Phil. 4:15). We partner by giving, praying, and connecting. Learn more about our co-laborers and how you can partner with them.
Many people at Redemption lead or serve in outreach-focused ministries. A number of them would be happy to meet with you to share about their ministries and to help you get connected if you’d like. Learn more about these Outreach Ministries.
One great way to grow in living missionally is to meet with one of our Missional Mentors. These men and women would be happy to meet with you to disciple you from their experience in the areas of sharing the gospel and reaching out to the lost.
