Missions Done Well: Part 2

April 2016

National Office

12:57

John Stumbo reminds us that missions isn’t about us getting to do something meaningful. The goal of missions is lasting fruit. “Missions done well” embraces a solid system of financial and strategic accountability; it establishes strong networks of reproducing local churches; and it is sustainable. The Alliance is committed to doing missions well until our King returns and our mission is complete.

“You, Lord, keep my lamp burning. My God turns my darkness into light.” The light of the Father shines upon us. And we, as Christ followers, enjoy the light of His presence. The world is a place of pain and despair. But Jesus illuminates the dark areas of our lives, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. Through Him, we go and make disciples of all nations, pointing lost people to the One who gives eternal life. Your gift to the Great Commission Sunday offering will help enlighten the lives of lost, suffering and displaced people with the light of Jesus Christ—the only One who can turn their darkness into light. www.cmalliance.org/gcsunday
