Across The Streets, Across The States, Across The Seas

Matthew 28:19-20 states, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

We want you to know about Good Shepherd’s part in fulfilling the command of Jesus to proclaim the gospel message. Our Missions Team at Good Shepherd exists to support, encourage, inform, and participate in efforts to fulfill the great commission around the world and in our local community. We support and encourage missions work “Across the streets” (local), “Across the states” (national), and “Across the seas” (global).

Good Shepherd partners with a number of different missionaries, supporting them in prayer and in some cases financially. As a church, we are intentional about encouraging the work of the following missionaries and ministries:
