Our passion to “proclaiming the excellencies of Christ in all things, to the glory of God in the joy of all peoples” propels us into world missions. Few things in life energize us more than seeing God’s people become excited, committed, and effective at reaching the nations with the Christ-exalting, soul-transforming message of the cross. Each year we seek to fan the flames of this passion not only through preaching/teaching on mission-related issues, but by sending teams of people to various parts of the world to taste it for themselves. So far, our teams have ministered in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine (Chernobyl Zone), Uganda, South Korea, the Yucatan, Mexico City and various villages in Mexico. The result has been that many in our church have discovered within themselves a new passion for evangelism here at home, and a few have left all to serve the Lord in foreign lands.
