Great Commission Month -- May 2017

Great commission month: Every Member Making Disciples in Obedience

Matthew 28:19-20

“The application of the Great Commission is not solely to go, but to pray to the Lord of the harvest for more laborers (Luke 10:2), to send them out as the church of Antioch did with Barnabas and Saul (Acts 13:2-3), and to support missionaries as 'fellow workers in the truth' (3 John 8). It is a corporate endeavor that involves every member of Christ’s body. Thus, our goal is not to persuade everyone to become a missionary, but to help everyone in our congregations think and act with a global evangelisation mindset.” The Great Commission: Fulfilled by Churches and for Churches, by 9Marks.

The theme for this year's Great Commission Month is "Every Member Making Disciples in Obedience" and all during the month of May, we will be focusing on God’s invitation to join Him in His Harvest Field. Let’s prepare our hearts to hear what He is doing in His world and to respond to His exhortation to make disciples of all nations!
