Made for a Mission

Getting started with Made for a Mission

When we hear the word “missions,” we often think of missionaries who’ve raised support and live in foreign countries or short-term missions trips our students take in the summer. And while “missions” includes these things, all followers of Jesus are called to live their lives on mission all the time. When we give our lives to Jesus, we join in God’s big, ongoing mission to redeem the world.
