Foreign Missions

Concordia’s foreign missions team seeks God’s will and guidance in providing

adult short-term mission experiences for Christian witness designed to: 

•  Fulfill the Great Commission of Christ

•  Share Christ’s heart for the world

•  Minister to the totality of human need

•  Bring men and women, girls and boys,

   to a saving knowledge of God

•  Obey Christ by confessing him to the world

•  Be a blessing to all peoples/nations

We believe that missions focused on these scripture-based purposes (see Biblical references below) shape each participant’s heart and mind toward a new understanding that all Christians are missionaries, wherever they go. In preparation for all trips, team members commit to pre-trip training that equips each participant to: developing a personal story about their faith to share with others; be prepared for cross-cultural ministry; and anticipate re-entry into everyday life after the trip. The team also spends time together in team building; fund raising; and sharing stories with the congregation about the way God worked in peoples’ lives before, during and after the trip.  Read More.
