Missions Philosophy

Goal

Our goal is to see God’s name exalted among the nations through the establishment of healthy, biblical churches. We believe that all missions work should include the explicit verbal proclamation of the gospel and should be conducted under the oversight of local churches with the end goal of establishing or supporting other local churches.

Areas of Focus

  1. Unreached Peoples. Regardless of the large amount of resources and risk required, we believe we must intentionally cross barriers of language and culture in order to reach those who have no hope outside of Christ.

  2. Strategic Church Planting and Leadership Development. Sound doctrine and healthy churches are essential for the perpetuation of a faithful gospel witness in any area, so we think a wise missions strategy should include efforts to strategically plant churches and equip pastors in strategic locations as well.

Mercy Ministry

While we believe that meeting physical needs should often accompany missions work, especially in view of the abundance God has given us (Gal. 6:10, 2 Cor. 8:14), we must be careful not to become distracted from the priority of making disciples (Matt. 28:18-20), create unhealthy dependencies, or incentivize spurious professions of faith. Ultimately, we want to establish indigenous, self-replicating churches that can fully carry on the work without us.

Blessing-Family-2.jpg

David and Billie Blessing have been serving in Guinea since 2007, striving to demonstrate Christ’s love through meeting needs, sharing the gospel, discipling believers, and training leaders. They’re working among the Fulbe people, an almost exclusively Islamic people group of about 6 million. By God’s grace, they’ve seen a number of conversions and have had the joy of seeing a church established. David’s been able to train up elders and entrust them to lead the church, while he himself continues to focus on evangelism and leadership training for leaders of his and the handful of other Christian churches in his region. David also coordinates an annual spiritual retreat for believers throughout the region, and the Blessings work together to provide evangelistic and discipleship resources in the local language. Finally, the Blessings are also able to serve their community by providing medical care, eyeglass clinics, and an English Language School.

Daniel+and+Soumya+Hiler.jpg

Daniel and Soumya Hiler are members of JPBC who are currently raising support to serve in Sweden as part of “The Every Initiative” with Cru. Their ministry will focus on evangelism and humanitarian aid among the many refugees flooding in from primarily hard-to-reach Islamic places, and include the evangelism of highly-secular Swedish university students who are often drawn to participate in humanitarian efforts. The Hilers hope that this will result in both the conversion of Swedes—and the revitalization of Swedish churches—as well as the conversion of many refugees as they come to see that Jesus is far more than a great prophet. They’re committed to working closely with existing churches to mobilize other believers and to ensure that those who become believers are able to be discipled in a local church context.

Missions Organizations

These are organizations we’ve personally interacted with and which we’d encourage you to learn about, pray for, and consider financially supporting. We’re grateful for the way that they support and enable churches to take the gospel to the world and establish healthy churches among all peoples.
