Missions

Jesus commissioned his disciples with an exciting task in the world: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NRSV).

We witness in a variety of ways through missions. Some of these missions are:
