21 Nov Mega church deploys missionaries to find the ‘hurting and lost’
"We want to be involved in church planting movements, specifically in places where the church is not established," Stewart said. "One of the ways we do that is by sending our people."
With nearly 6,000 worshippers a week, Savannah Christian hosts one of the largest missionary programs in the area.
In the past three years, the Chatham County mega church has placed more than 600 members in projects located in more than 20 countries.
About a dozen members have left the church this year to become full-time missionaries.
"We believe that when you study the Bible, this is what the church is called to be," Dave Stewart said. "It’s not an optional thing. It’s outreach to people who are hurting and lost."
As the Global Outreach pastor, Stewart leads a staff of four outreach assistants.”
I applaud this churches heart for the mission of Jesus, say a big Amen, this should be every churches testimony, and I pray that many will be encouraged by their story and do the same.
