Why Missions:
We believe missions fulfill the Great Commission commanded by Jesus. The call to make disciples locally and globally. Acts 1:8 calls us “to the ends of the earth”. Practically speaking we know we are not all called to go live in Africa, but some are. The call to missions is fulfilled through the mantra Pray, Give, and Go. We are to pray for the nations, we are to support and give generously to building God’s kingdom worldwide, and we are called go to the ends of the earth. Missions help connect us to what is going on in the world and to see the bigger picture of God’s kingdom. Seeing what is happening in another context and in our local community creates the opportunity to gain new perspective and inspiration to serve and love Him more.
 
How We Partner: 
How do we decide to who to support? With so many wonderful ministries and missionaries, it is impossible to support them all! Some years ago, our staff and elder board identified three guiding principles for missions support. We want to partner with
gospel-centered people and organizations that focus on the following:

Why We Give To Missions: 
Generosity is the fruit of proper Biblical understanding of ownership. I’m convinced by the psalmist words, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it”. God is the source, provider, creator, and owner. Understanding this truth is the first principle in handling our money well. Our role isn’t to “give back” to God but manage the resources He asked us to invest for His Kingdom’s sake. We give at Koinonia Church because we know God is expecting a return according to the story of the talents in Matthew 25. We give to invest in the Kingdom-building ministries He set before us. I believe when you give; ‘you are saying to God, you’re in charge, God, and everything I have is available to You for Your Kingdom.’

Missions Events

Join us Saturday, December 11 at 9am on Koinonia Campus, for coffee and pastries!
 
The Tamayo’s have come home from the mission field in Asia to rest, get refreshed and visit with those who have prayed and supported them over the years. God has given the Tamayo’s the next step to their vision for Skate Ministry Asia and they would love to share the challenges, victories and their future plans with us over coffee and pastries. This is a great time to encourage them, for them to inform us, and answer any questions we may have.
