Video – Why Do I Need a Sending Church?

Is it possible to go if you’re not actually sent?

Sometimes people are interested in heading to a new place as a missionary. But they may really struggle to see the value of a sending church. You could put it this way: “Why is important for me to be affiliated with and connected to a body of believers here, when I will be over there?”

Fair question. Let’s tackle it.

Missions has never been about just the individual. Since the very first missionary journey, it has been a partnership between those who go, and those who send. Read about it in Acts 13:1-3.

See why we say every missionary needs a sending church.
