"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." — Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus' command and promise above are the last words he spoke before ascending to heaven. The first thing to know about missions is that they're all about being like Jesus. Jesus left the comfort of heaven to go on a mission to seek and save what was lost (Luke 19:10). Now God sends us on mission into our neighborhoods, our region, and even to places we may never go otherwise to continue Jesus' mission by sharing everything Jesus has shared with us (Acts 1:8).
Southland supports mission work around the world. With each project we support we strive to care for each missions partner, be actively involved with each partner and share the love of Christ through each partner. We cannot financially support every worthy missions project around the world, but we do prayerfully consider every work that comes before us as we listen for how God wants Southland to be a part of what He is doing all over the world. Join us as we extend hope to the poor.
