"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." –Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus Christ calls and empowers His church to follow His example and bring God’s Kingdom to Earth. Because we want to live like Him and follow His Holy Spirit we are dedicated to equipping saints to preach the Gospel and make disciples. We also believe in the imperative to do this in the context of the mission He gave us. Therefore Calvary Boise is dedicated to both send missionaries and being sent to people who haven’t heard the Gospel—in our community, nation, and throughout the world.
PRAY FOR OUR MISSION
When I answered the call to pastor this church I wasn’t entirely sure where God was leading us. Through timely counsel and the wisdom of God’s Word I decided to not step out into anything new until I had led through thick and thin for at least three years. It is by no small coincidence that on the exact day that I completed my third year as your pastor, I boarded a plane to take part in a global prayer conference for unreached peoples. There is a new move of the Spirit for the mission of our church, and like all new things it must begin with prayer. It is time for me to ask you to join me in the first step in any fruitful mission by asking you to pray.
With Joy and Excitement,
Here are some ways that you can pray for the missions ministry of Calvary Boise:
1. PURPOSE: Pray that our church would have a fresh desire to reach the unreached (Philippians 3:12).
2. PERSEVERANCE: Pray that God will give us the grace to press on toward the prize of a new generation of believers (Philippians 3:13-14).
3. PARTNERSHIP: Pray that God will open up a new door to the mission field through unified relationships (Philippians 3:15-17).
In order to effectively and healthily send our global missionaries, we are building sending teams around each missionary to provide the financial, prayer, and logistical support they need. These teams commit to a period of service and meet up regularly to fellowship and pray for their missionary. To join a team and support a missionary, please read the Advocacy Teams DNA booklet and then contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Already support a missionary financially or with prayer? Wonderful! You're already doing the work of their Advocacy Team! We'd love to get you updated on the new ways we're staying connected. Please contact email@example.com and we'd love to plug you in.
