First Steps

  • If God is stirring your heart to get involved somehow, but you're not sure what to do next, perhaps we can help.

    The very first thing is to start finding out what is happening.  There is always a lot going on overseas, at our headquarters, and across the country.  As you look around, you may find that there is a certain project, or a certain missionary whose work especially interests you.  Wanting God to bless the work, and all those involved, you may start praying especially for that ministry.  You may want to get better connected with those involved to know more about what the particular needs are at the moment.  And you may find, after a while, that you are getting involved in ways you never considered when you started out.  And you'll realize that, somewhere along the way, you've become a valuable member of a team working together to accomplish something truly worthy.  Getting involved can give a satisfying taste of that New Testament koinonia -  fellowship or partnership - the apostle Paul speaks of in his letter to the Philippians:  "In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel..."  (Phil 1:4,5)
