What are your goals and dreams for 2016? Our Missions Team and I would like to recomend participating on a mission trip be put at the top of the list. These 1-2 week adventures have been known to change the trajectory in individual lives. According to the 2015 ACP, over 11,000 people in Denton Baptist Association were involved in these kingdom projects.
This past year I traveled to France with members from The Ridge Church, Carrollton and First Baptist Church, Ponder to participate in missions. We partnered with Stephen and Sabrina Marshall who are planting churches in and around Lyon, France. We also worked with several French pastors and leaders who are reaching a country that is becoming more spiritually dark. Having participated in several mission trips through the years, I have discovered six benefits of being involved in these trips:
Truly there are more benefits that could be listed. Let me encourage you and your church to consider participating in a mission project this year. If you are in search of a project in which to participate, please plan to attend SEND North America. Dates and information on these luncheons can be found here. There is also a list of local church mission trips for the summer found here. Each of these churches would welcome others to partner with them on these trips. Take the plunge and reap the benefits of participating in a mission trip in 2016!
