What is a mission? What’s our mission in the Church?

Jesus’ words in Luke 24:45-48 give us a clear answer: “Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures and said to them, ‘Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to these things.’”

The Kansas District Missions Office works to support everyone in carrying out this mission. For our congregations and church workers, we assist with coordination, collaboration opportunities, grant support and resource sharing. We also want to equip ALL of God’s people—not only church professionals—to talk with others about “the excellencies of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

If you have an idea for missions and outreach, we’d like to hear about it. Our missions webpages are intended to point you in a helpful direction, whether you’re interested in supporting mission work in Africa or reaching out to a friend or family member right here in Kansas.

With this message or preaching, it is just as if one throws a stone into the water. It makes waves and circles or wheels around itself, and the waves roll always farther outward. … It is always being made more widely known to those that have never heard it before.
