At Shepherd of the Lakes Church one of our core values are “We Get Out of Our Seats”. We believe God’s people are to be in mission. Jesus did not just call us to be saved. He also called us to be part of the salvation process of others (see Ephesians 2:8-10). In fact, He’s commanded us to do the very same work He did when He walked on this earth (see John 14:12). That means we are to pass on what we’ve learned and received from Him-His love, His mercy, His compassion and His Truth-to the world around us.
Mission exists anywhere God’s work is being done. Therefore, we are able to participate in mission locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. It is our goal at Shepherd of the Lakes to make mission experiences available at each of these different levels (at least periodically).
