2022 Mission Trip

And I have other sheep that are not of this fold.  I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice.  So there will be one flock, one shepherd.  John 10:16 ESV

Overview

 

Purpose and Approach

The purpose of this mission trip is to introduce new team members to ministry among Muslim people through assisting in existing ministry efforts committed to building gospel-focused relationships.

During the mission trip our approach will be to:

  1. Invest our time in classroom training during morning sessions
  2. Invest our time in practical training by meeting Muslim people face to face during afternoons and evenings
  3. Teach English to Afghan people in an ESL camp setting
  4. Pray for Muslim people and people groups
  5. Visit a mosque as a way to meet Muslims and learn about their faith and practices
  6. Gain exposure to Muslim cultures
  7. Experience hospitality with Muslim peoples, both through giving and receiving
Our Prayer

Our prayer for this trip is that through interaction with Muslim people and with those ministering to them, team members will experience some of the many ways in which God can use them and their churches among Muslims, growing in their vision and ability to identify and overcome some of the challenges and barriers that can prevent individuals and churches from reaching out to Muslims.

Pre-trip Team Member Preparation
