Jesus’ final commandment to us was to “Go!”  We call it the Great Commission.  We call it Evangelism.  It’s the centerpiece of our work because it is the essential piece that allows us to continue to disciple and multiply.  We want to walk with you and equip you to be and develop successful evangelists in your context.

Our reason

The reason we do what we do…

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

–Matthew 28:18-20
