Gathered around mission and empowered by prayer – partnering with God and others overseas to usher in the kingdom of God.
We are in the early stages as a church family of building relationships with Church planters around the world in order to partner with them in mission. Our heart is to commission and send members of our church family both short and long term to serve alongside these local missionaries. Our aim is to:
- Serve and empower mission-focussed leaders
- Develop communities of mission-focussed disciples
- Support the poor and disadvantaged in those communities
How can you get involved?
- Serve alongside local missionaries long-term
- Join a short-term mission team
- Get involved locally by fundraising or prayer
If you would like to find out more about how to get involved we’d love to have a chat with you.
THE JOYS – ROUBAIX, FRANCE
Pete, Zanne, Carey, Elsie and Molly
God has called us to co-labour with Him in the establishment of a Church Planting Movement to impact the city of Roubaix and beyond. We have started by prayer groups and discovery Bible Studies in the homes of “men of peace” (Luke 10:6) and are forming disciples who will eventually form the church – church defined as “a group of believers, committed to Christ and to one another and who obey Jesus’ commands.” (Matt. 28:18-20)
We aim to plant churches in people’s homes and see them develop with the aim of saturating every neighbourhood in Roubaix (and parts of Lille Metropole). These churches will be characterized by every believer being discipled, and empowered to disciple others (2 Tim 2:2) and use their spiritual gifts. A vision for multiplication and the ability to multiply both locally and trans-locally, using locally trained leaders who empower others, will be our common heritage.
We are seeking to partner with and serve a church planting movement in the Balkan area. This is a predominantly Muslim region that is largely unreached with the Gospel.
THE BEGU’S – GJILAN, KOSOVO
Geni, Soni, David, Nikol and Simon
We are an Albanian family, who became believers in 1991 after the fall of Communism in our country. Our lives were quickly turned around by the power of the gospel and we were ignited with a fire to preach the gospel to our own people. In 2007 we felt the Lord call us to move to Gjilan, Kosovo, and to do mission training for Albanians. The conviction was that by planting a new church in Gjilan we could begin to realize our dream to mobilize, train and send Albanians to reach Muslims with the gospel. Five Albanians and three Americans joined our team in 2008, as well as many short term teams from Albania and other nations. Our passion is to see people come to know Jesus, be transformed and empowered to reach their own people with the gospel and beyond. We are passionate about praying to see signs and wonders as a way for the Lord to draw people to Himself. Please pray for us that we will continue in full faith and obedience, and that the Lord will confirm our ministry through His marvellous power and that many people will be saved.
