  • Challenge believers to take new steps of faith in their walk with Christ in being a part of this mission opportunity (new opportunities for people to use their gifts-music, children and youth ministry, worship, elder training, etc.)
  • Challenge believers to live on mission in their families, jobs, friendships, and other relationships.
  • Be a part of building into the lives of a family and developing a life long friendship with them.

  • Extra support for your church ministries from the residents serving in your church for a year.
