3 kinds

It is our privilege to invite you to be a sender. Will you engage in world missions? Please listen to John Piper on how the church is to obey the Great Commission. We would love you partnering with us to reach the San, an unreached people group.

“When it comes to world missions, there are only three kinds of people: goers, senders, and the disobedient. It’s not God’s will for everyone to be a ‘goer.’ Only some are called to go out for the sake of the name to a foreign culture (e.g., Mark 5:18-19). Those who are not called to go out for the sake of the name are called to stay for the sake of the name, to be salt and light right where God has placed them, and to join others in sending those who are called to be cross-cultural missionaries. In God’s eyes both the goers and the senders are crucial. There are no first and second class Christians in God’s hierarchy of values. Together the goers and the senders are ‘fellow-workers with the truth’ (3 John 8). So whether you are a goer or a sender is a secondary issue. That your heart beats with God’s in his pursuit of worshipers from every tribe and tongue and people and nation is the primary issue. This is what it means to be a World Christian.” ~ John Piper from Holy-Ambition
