Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations…” Matt. 28:19

 

How can I serve?  There are many ways to give of ourselves to God and our local, regional or global missions.  Go—whether it is next door or to another country.  God gives each of us the authority and the gifts to use to help fulfill the Great Commission.  Go and serve the Lord our God.
