Ÿ Through our faith promise missions giving, we support missionaries who are local and those who are global
Ÿ We have a goal of raising $8,000 per month for missions support.

Ÿ Is it possible to do what God has called His Church to do?
Ÿ Yes! But the cost will be tremendous, in Money, Resources, and People.
Ÿ Our motto for missions isPray, Give, Go

The Apostle Paul demonstrated how to Pray, Give, Go.
1. A Willing Heart

2 Corinthians 8:12 CEVD
It doesn’t matter how much you have. What matters is how much you are willing to give from what you have.

Ÿ Paul was so moved by their love and willing hearts that he taught every church he formed to establish this same kind of missionary giving.

Exodus 35:21
…and everyone who was willing and whose heart moved them came and brought an offering to the Lord for the work on the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments.

Exodus 36:5
…The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the Lord commanded to be done….
2. An Open Wallet

Ÿ The grace Paul talked about is the grace of giving.

Proverbs 11:25
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
3. A Move of Faith

2 Corinthians 10:15b NIV
Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our sphere of activity among you will greatly expand…

Ÿ Paul and his companions were just waiting to travel and proclaim the fame and the glory of God.
Ÿ And what were they waiting on?
Ÿ They were waiting on these people to grow in their faith so they would finance their mission endeavors.

Romans 10:17
Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God.

James 2:20b
Faith without works is dead.
