The word mission—or missions—evokes a lot of different mental images: huts in Africa, rivers in Brazil, bustling urban centers, pungent smells, sprawling markets, unrecognizable food, unintelligible languages, mosques, temples, a passport, a plane ticket. None of these is necessarily inaccurate; just incomplete.
Sometimes missions means crossing the street and meeting a neighbor. Or it can mean serving sno-cones in the park, tutoring children at a local school, or helping a refugee learn to drive. Yes, it can also mean getting on a plane, with passport in hand, and traveling around the world. There are many ways to follow Jesus’s example and demonstrate the Kingdom of God.
Missions is a dynamic part of a discipleship journey where you can see first-hand what God is doing in your neighborhood and beyond; and even to some of the most unreached parts of the world. And YOU get to be a part of it!
Sharing our faith is not just a suggestion, it is a command. Missions is not a spectator sport where the church sits back and watches the work of our mission partners in the field. Every believer is called to mission and to fulfill the role God designed for him or her in the Kingdom. We must mobilize for the mission of making disciples of all nations.

Nearly 2 billion people in our world have little or no access to the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are desperate for someone to share His life with them. In order to meet this need, Concord Global Missions partners with 5 strategic global areas where we see God at work and feel His call to join Him there, as well as several global gateway cities where many from our strategic people groups have been scattered.
