Three Essential Reasons I’m Involved!

By Pastor Steve Rouse

Gospel Fellowship Community Church

Gladstone, Ore

Steve RousseJust over ten years ago, a good friend invited me to my first Mission ConneXion Northwest Steering Team meeting.  Before that, I had attended one Mission ConneXion event but knew little about the organization, its purpose, or the benefit it provides to the local church.  Since that day, I continue to attend the monthly steering meetings and continue to enjoy seeing what God is doing in missions locally and around the world.  From a pastor’s perspective, here are three reasons why Mission ConneXion is essential to the local church:

Foster Families Served

By Christopher Coffman
Mission Pastor, River West Church, Lake Oswego, ORPastedGraphic-1

 I’ve come to see my missions pastor role as helping God’s people answer Jesus’ call: “Follow me and I’ll make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:9). This is the single greatest privilege of pastoral ministry—watching Jesus transform men, women, and children into missionaries he can use. And this is one of the main reasons we partner with Mission ConneXion—to reinforce a culture where members of our church can answer Christ’s invitation to mission.
