Only missionaries are sent out on mission trips. In John 20:21, Jesus sends his disciples out as missionaries. At Shannon Oaks Church, we believe that same sending applies to disciples of Jesus today. We aren’t awaiting our next mission trip. Instead, we have already been sent as missionaries. We’re on a mission trip! Now, our objective is to realize where God has already sent us as his disciples to continue His ministry of reconciliation.
Whether it’s your home, your neighborhood, your school, or your workplace, we want to equip you for your primary mission field. God has a plan and a purpose for you living and going right where you do!
Community Groups are a great way to engage your current mission field!
This doesn’t mean that God doesn’t periodically send us to go around the world for the sake of loving people and participating in His redemptive plan. However, we currently choose to focus locally since our roots are deepest here. Hopkins County is where God has sent us.
Having said that, there are some people from Shannon Oaks Church who have invested interests and are devoted to ministries in places like Haiti, India, and The Philippines.
If you have questions about missions (either locally or abroad), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
