Expansion - Reaching People for Jesus
Recently I have been asked by United World Mission leadership to head up an initiative which includes several people and direct what is being unofficially called "Expansion Ministries." This will be a group which includes Expedition237, Career Missions and Global Church Partnerships. Our vision will be to develop a new structure which mobilizes a new generation into the world and to continues to look for strategic nationally lead partnerships to connect both long term people and forward thinking churches.
God is permitting me to assemble a team of people which includes Keith Keller (next generation leader); Diana Carney Kauffman (communication and mobilization specialist); Ken Campbell (church mobilizer/mission coach), Rick Slager (West Africa ministry developer), Tom Telford (church mission consultant), and possible one other person I am presently in dialogue with.
Will you pray for us? Our desire is to see God's heart for the nations become a reality by seeing the US and National Church being everything Jesus set it in motion to do. Things immediately in front of us are:
1. Successful transference of mobilization activities
2. Tweaking of am appointee coaching process
3. Additional development of the Expedition237 structure
4. Building the church partnership process
I often find myself working hard to get things done but then God brings my back to the place of trusting Him for results. So pray with us to The Lord of the Harvest for His dreams for His creation to become a reality.
