Our Mission to the Ends of the Earth is simply a commitment to obey the Great Commission (Matthew 28), which depicts the need to present a Gospel witness in places beyond the borders of Edenvale, and often to Nations, People and Cultures far removed from our own.
As a Church our heart is to partner with the global Church in initiating a witness to unreached people groups. This sometimes means partnering with global Missions agencies, but primarily aiming to send and support our own members to these frontier ministries. To that end we have a Missions department that aims to Expose, Equip and Encourage members for the great task of making disciples of all Nations. This happens through Short-Term Missions trips, Mission Week campaigns, and developing Missionaries.
Current vocational Missionaries that we support include the following people (due to security reasons certain information is withheld):
Brian & Shirley – South East Asia
