In our “going” we utilize Acts chapter 1 verse 8. Jesus describes geographical criteria for WHERE to make disciples.
2. Judea and Samaria
3. The Uttermost parts
As a church, when we are seeking to fulfill Jesus’ geographical command, we want to see every area affecting the others. When we engage in local missions we want to see God cause an opportunity for us in other ways. While we travel to the uttermost, we long to see God open doors in our local community to engage in similar ministry. We do not believe Jesus gave different geographical locations to be separate circles, but three circles of disciple-making that intertwine and affect each other.
**Example – As we travel to Guatemala this summer, we hope to see how we can engage the Hispanic community in the Memphis area more effectively. As we engage in ministry in the Hispanic community in Memphis, we want to see how that impacts our ministry in Guatemala.
