Pray, Prepare, Give, GO!

I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, 

not where Christ has already been named, 

lest I build on someone else's foundation,

but as it is written,

“Those who have never been told of him will see,

and those who have never heard will understand.”

- Romans 15:20-21

The Great Commission

Our focus in our work internationally is on places where lostness is great. When we can, we partner with national Great Commission believers to take the good news to unreached peoples or places.

PRAY

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 

Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest

to send out laborers into his harvest.

- Luke 10:2

What exactly should I pray for?

  1. That the Holy Spirit will remove the spiritual blindness of the lost.
  2. That those people our teams interact with will come to know the Truth.
  3. For open doors so that missionaries will be able freely to take the Gospel. 
  4. For the protection and safety of missionaries and other Christian workers.
  5. That God will raise believers to build a strong church among their own people.

Prepare

Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, 

and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 

and, as shoes for your feet, having put on

the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

Ephesians 6:14-15

How can i Prepare?

    1. Study God's Word
    2. Serve locally...especially the hurting and hungry.
    3. Learn to live with less.
    4. Read a missionary biography or take a class.
    5. Share your faith where you are right now!

Give

For they gave according to their means, 

as I can testify, and beyond their means, 

of their own accord, begging us earnestly for

the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints

-  2 Corinthians 8:3-4

Our Shared Responsibility

Every Christian has a responsibility and a role to play in making disciples of all nations, whether by going or by sending. God leads people to become missionaries in unique and personal ways, but there are some things you can look for in discerning your part in the Great Commission.

Go!


Where is God calling you?

We want to follow where ever the Lord may be calling our covenant members. Here are some places we have followed so far...

  • Uganda

    In coordination with World Reach Partnership, we go to Uganda to penetrate that country with the Gospel.  Rick Via leads this team, impacting the area for several years providing medications, supplies, health care, and the hope of the Gospel!

  • Omas, Peru

    We have adopted a small town called Omas with the purpose of planting a church.  Working in a mountainous region of the Andes, team members seek ways to have conversations and share Bible stories by helping work in the fields, helping townspeople as they go through their daily routine, and finding other ways to serve the people.

  • Ireland

    Ireland is home to many who have very little access to a Bible believing and preaching church. We partner with two missionary families to bring them the Good News of Hope in Jesus Christ as we proclaim the Gospel and live out our faith among them.

  • CRAIOVA, Romania

    Green Ridge  has been supporting the spread of the Gospel in Romania for over 20 years. Through Mike Palmer Ministries, we partner with and support a native Pastor with a focus on reaching the young people of the nation.
