The Importance of Missions

God has called us to love our neighbors and share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who are near and far. We “Love God and Love people” at The Orchard as we follow Jesus’s command:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

The goal for our Ministry work is:

  • To share God’s heart for the lost
  • To reach the lost for Jesus
  • To train participants how to hear God’s voice
  • To disciple other Christians, especially youth, to reach the lost until Christ returns.

We long to see lives transformed, for the ones we are ministering to as well as the ones who are pouring out themselves into the lives of others. Mission work,
both internationally and locally, can open hearts and minds to receive Jesus Christ. Supporting short-term missions gives us the vehicle through which we mobilize people onto life-long discipleship as well as potentially opening opportunities for long-term missions.
