Global Outreach at College Park
Jesus' last command - our first priority.
Why should we care about the world "out there" when there are so many needs right here at home? Because Jesus did. And does. And He does through us, the church. He has given us the incredible assignment of making disciples of all nations and of being His witnesses to the ends of the earth. (Mt. 28:19,20; Acts 1:8)
Global Outreach is the cross-cultural communication of the Gospel. It is taking the message and life of Jesus around the world to those who have not yet heard.
To see the church established within each people group of the world and equipped so that it can effectively reach the rest of its people group with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To accomplish this task, we give priority in our missions efforts to those largest groups of people in the world who currently have the least opportunity to hear. Two billion people not only have not heard about Jesus--but cannot hear, because there's no one in their people group to tell them. We call this, "The dark third of the world."
This is the foundation for our missions efforts and our only confidence for success.
Through focusing on evangelism and discipleship, our goal is to see churches planted among the unreached people groups of the world.
Priority in our missions efforts will be given to those people groups of the world in which the largest numbers of people have the least opportunity to hear the Gospel.
We seek to show the love of God to the poor and oppressed by compassionately helping to meet their physical needs.
Sending Our Own
Our efforts will be focused on sending missionaries from our congregation who will be equipped, sent out, and supported by College Park through giving, prayer, and encouragement.
We can’t, nor do we want to, do this work by ourselves. We strive to work together in partnership with agencies, ministries, and churches in culturally effective ways to demonstrate the grace and holiness of Jesus Christ.
