Lynn Pryor, Library Support Consultant
As a church and as individuals, we are all shaped by Jesus teaching, how he modelled life and service, by his life-giving sacrifice and by his command to "go and in your going, make disciples of all nations...".
What a privilege to be a part of God's mission - God bringing people into relationship with himself; as told in the Bible from the first book, lived out by Jesus himself, and now continuing among every people and language.
As co-workers with God, we pray, equip, send and go, in order to make disciples of Christ who make disciples of Christ. Our mission partners have been lead by God into various cross-cultural and local mission contexts; some are funded by GWAC and others agencies while others are self funded, however all are set apart, commissioned and supported in various ways. A partnership with an overseas church is another way in which we seek to help make disciples for Jesus.
Some of our ministry partners are not shown below as they are in sensitive regions - your prayer and encouragement is also vital for them. You can see find out more through our services and the missions information board. For each partner, a contact person helps in keeping GWAC informed and praying for our partners. Partners share their news - challenges and joys, via regular email updates.
