To Know Him and to Make Him Known to All Peoples
In his letter to the Romans, Paul identifies that the foundation for people calling upon the name of the Lord to be saved is that proclaimers will be sent! Missions at CFC begins with sending, just as the father sent His Son on our behalf, then the Son send out the apostles. As the Apostle Paul reflected on those who sent him from Philippi, he provides for us a blueprint for becoming a highly effective sender in Philippians 4:10-19.
The church in Philippi was so blessed by what Paul had done for them that they not only supported him while he was ministering in their city, they also supported him while in Thessalonica. As you recall how you came to faith in Christ or grew in Christ, you may want to invest in those who continue to do that ministry currently.
Many of our commended missionaries once sat in CFC services. You may have had a relationwhip with them prior to their entering ministry or while in ministry and, therefore, you are excited to invest in them, not only as missionaries, but as friends. It is a real privilege to send out other people who are a blessing to you. Certainly there are other ways in which God may "connect" you with a missionary. The point is to listen to the Lord as you get to know our commended missionaries through their profiles.
Thank you for your willingness to share in the work of God among the nations. What a privilege it is to be used by Him in His global purpose. If you would like to learn how to become involved in our Sender Teams at CFC, please contact our Director of Missions, Wendy Graves.
