But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

– Acts 1:8

Jesus invites us to take the love of God to every corner of the earth….to GO with His power, to PRAY for His Spirit to change lives and to GIVE so that others may know. “Your name and your renown are the desires of our heart” Isaiah 26:8We believe that God is calling us to step out in radical faith and offer ourselves as God’s servants here at the river in Saskatoon, to the ends of the earth. Will you join us?

How do we do this?

GO

One of our goals is to encourage every person, young and old, to be involved in mission opportunities locally and globally. We seek to do this through intentional, relational partnerships that we are developing with our missionaries and in strategic areas of Saskatoon and around the world. As we GO our view of God, His people and the world will expand and grow.

SEND

We want to see the whole church engaged in sending out long term and short term missionaries. God has commanded us to GO and make DISCIPLES, and He has asked the church to set apart and send out missionaries (Matt. 28:19,20; Acts 1:1,2). Through prayer, encouragement, practical helps and financial support we want to be a church that SENDS.

PRAY

Prayer is one of our greatest weapons in the progress of Missions. Jesus said,

“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” – Matt 9:37-38

We invite you to pray for the Lord to raise up people who will GO, GIVE and PRAY so that we will see transformation in our city, our country and the nations. What a privilege to partner in prayer!
