We believe that the purpose of the church is to be the hands and feet of Christ- to join with other believers who are called out. The church isn’t simply a place to come; it is better described as God’s movement reaching people around the world with the saving power of Jesus Christ. As followers of Christ, we are all uniquely gifted to minister. These unique gifts are given to edify (build up) the church. They are not for our own use and gain, but for God’s glory. Look below to see the many opportunities to bring the Gospel to other nations with us in 2018. Don’t just ‘come and see’, but ‘go and reach’!
2020 Mission Projects
Due to the impacts on travel, countries shutting their borders, and the amount of people being detained or quarantined, Parkway is pausing all short-term group international missions travel effective March 9 through June 30, 2020. All Mid-term and long-term individuals and families who are traveling are able to proceed as scheduled with proper training and monitoring of their travel plans.
We trust the Lord and His timing in all of this. Pausing short-term travel is in no way a retreat of being on mission with God nor a fear of a virus or a fear of man's reaction to the threat of a virus. We are trusting God's sovereignty and ask that you pray for people who have been impacted by the virus, missionaries who live in countries where they have been confined to their homes, and people who are afraid that they would trust the living God who is the Great Healer and Divine Planner. This is not the time to retreat in our missions praying and giving, but a time to increase our praying and our giving, so that when restrictions are lifted, we will be ready to be carriers of the gospel and encouragers in person. In the meantime, we will be carriers of the gospel in prayer and encouragers in other mediums.
