We use a made up word “glocal” to describe the focus of theChurch.at. It is the merging of global and local. We believe that God’s mission is both global and local, so ours must be, too. Fortunately, we live in an age where even a local church can have a global impact. We are asking you to help us bring local resources to global solutions for the sake of the Gospel.
Our mission’s goal is to plug you into a place where you can make the most difference with the skills, abilities, passions, experience, and resources that God has blessed you with. Serving God changes lives.
There are 1.7 billion people on planet earth who live outside of the influence of Christianity (no missionaries, no churches, and no Christian radio/TV), and that fact is the driving force behind asking you to consider being involved internationally.
God invites us to actively engage in his mission to bring salvation to every tribe, language, people, and nation. Jesus tells his church to “be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” –Acts 1:8. Today, our Jerusalem is Our City. Our Judea and Samaria is Our Nation. Our ends of the earth is Our World. This is why we want to help you discover your mission in Our City, Our Nation, Our World.
We have several upcoming trips, but missions is more than just a trip, it’s a mentality. There are 6,000 people groups worldwide who are living and dying without the gospel. God is on a mission to bring his message of redemption to all peoples whether they are in our backyard or across the world. He calls all of us to be on mission with him. We must have the mentality that we will obediently respond to his calling to take the gospel wherever he asks. We are God’s witness to all peoples, of all ages, all the time.
Would you take some beginning steps of faith this year, so that God can use you to change the world?

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15
