A Two-Part Vision:
Part 1: The Rise of a New Mission
I believe in the rise of missions within the continental U.S. As a Church, I commend the great work of our missionaries overseas and the commitment we’ve made as the Church at large to bring the gospel to unreached areas in the world. However, we are suffering much loss on the home front, as church participation and influence is at an all-time low among the younger generations.
I believe a new missions movement is needed to bring the gospel to the United States, to strengthen the local church, and to fulfill the Great Commission in our own back yard. Pastoral staffs working the 9-5 grind, community outreaches and youth groups are not enough to reach our communities. I commend your efforts and encourage you to keep fighting the good fight. The local church is the essential ministry for reaching our communities and my hope is that our efforts will strengthen and embolden your congregations to see the gospel saturate your cities!
I believe we need the hands and feet of the whole church, and our context for domestic missions is designed to equip the saints while partnering with the efforts of the local churches across our nation.
Part 2: “A House for Prayer, for Refuge, and for Missions…”
I am part of a small team of Christians whose focus is to establish a community centered around prayer, restoration, and missions. Currently, most of us live simple lifestyles in RV’s and other tiny home or community settings. The goal is to live on as little as possible so that we might offer the greatest possible amount of our time and energy to our families, to the Church, and to the Great Commission. As time goes on, we endeavor to have a property for people to come to for rest and refuge, that we will also use as a place for prayer and a hub for our missionaries.
Action: Help us Meet a Practical Need!
We are currently saving up to purchase a school bus conversion, or “skoolie”, to live in full-time. Skoolies are safer and easier to maintain than an RV, which makes it a great option for our family as a full-time travel option. Living in a skoolie has a lot of practical benefits, such as lowering costs of travel so that we are less of a financial burden on host churches and ministries. It allows us to live off-grid so that we’re not at the mercy of RV resorts, and gives us the benefit of designing it ourselves to best accommodate our family and save costs overall.
If you are able to give, one of the best ways you can support our ministry is to donate to the skoolie fund via PayPal. You can make a one-time donation or set up recurring donations if you would like to support our ministry on an ongoing basis.
