“…teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you…”
These were among the last words of Jesus to his 11 friends before ascending into Heaven – just before leaving this earth. And now – some 2000 years later – this mission and commandment, which Jesus gives his friends to fulfill, is up to US.
Not “making converts,” but training up trainers who, in turn, will train other trainers – this is our calling and mission as disciples of Jesus.
This is the only solution in order to truly love and reach the 7.5 billion people on this earth. If each disciple of Jesus gets trained and equipped to train and equip one more Trainer per year, we will certainly see the vision accomplished that John describes in Revelation 7:9-10:
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’”
In order that all might become capable of living out the lifestyle that Jesus modeled – healing the sick, setting captives free, loving people with the power of God, announcing the character of God and speaking about His Kingdom – Jesus paid the price with his physical body that we might be baptized! We are immersed into His Spirit! In this way He has equipped us with the fire and the power of God to destroy the works of the wicked one, the devil, wherever we go.
We want to respond to this call by offering a short-term experiences by GO Missions or the Summer O’. We are happy to be able to offer you what God has freely given to us. We want to help, equip and strengthen you… and walk WITH you in the mission of God.
