LIFE Direction: GT Mission
If you have been a part of Glad Tidings for even a short time, you know that our collective call is to follow Christ into the complexity of our world. We remind ourselves often that we “Live for God and Live for People”. That is why missions and the work of the GT Mission Team and Mission Partners is central to who we are as a church.
The Mission Team seeks to create meaningful opportunities for our people to give to mission, to pray for missions, and to go on mission. We know that members of the GT family have a deep desire to engage with our world in response to the gospel call of Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Our 2018 Mission life:
As a congregation, we are partnering with 18 mission initiatives in Ontario, across Canada, and around the world. A list of our partners is available at www.gtburlington.org.
This year, we are welcoming another refugee family to our community and supporting their transition to Canada (See LIFE Together).
Pastor Steve gives leadership to our Short-Term Mission trips. GT is sending three teams this year (see LIFE Journeys).
Please pray for the current GT Mission Team of Monica Helbrecht, Sue Wells, Pastor Steve Swartwood, Bev Egert, and Pat Klein. They serve with passion and great capacity. We are also looking to expand our team! If you are interested in the work of the GT Mission Team or in getting involved, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also pray also for clarity and guidance as you seek to express the mission call of Jesus in your family, in your work world and in your neighbourhood.
