To the ends of the earth…through planting churches!

As Jesus was sent by the Father, he sends his followers into the world (Jn. 20.21, Mt. 28.19-20). As part of that calling, we are actively engaged in mission and church planting right here at home and also in places outside of the immediate reach of Remedy Church.

Southeast Asia

One of our Remedy families lives in Southeast Asia as part of a team whose purpose is to spread the gospel and plant churches among an unreached people group, most of whom have little access to the gospel. They are involved in a variety of things, including development, healthcare, and training local workers, using legitimate business and humanitarian ventures for the purpose of mission.

East Asia

One of our Remedy families lives in East Asia as part of a team who equips incoming workers for their tasks and lives in a new country. Part of their work includes language and cultural acquisition, along with living their daily lives with missional purposes.

Get Involved

Unfortunately, we can’t put a lot of details in writing, but if you’d like to know more about the work in East or Southeast Asia, just let us know. That’s a great conversation over a cup of coffee! In the meantime, there are several ways you can partner with us and these families:

Give

A portion of our regular budget goes toward the work in East and Southeast Asia, so every time you give you are giving to the work! You can also give additional funds directly toward the work or to help scholarship one of our short-term teams.

Go

We send teams periodically to encourage our workers and participate in the work on the ground. You may also feel like the Lord is leading you toward a longer stint as part of a team.

Email Bryan Wooten to talk more about going.

Pray

One of the most significant parts of the work is asking the Lord to open doors to the gospel and open spiritually blind eyes to see (2 Cor. 4.4-6). You can pick up prayer cards for our workers from the Connection and Resources table on a Sunday or join their individual prayer teams.

Email Bryan Wooten to join one of their prayer teams.

Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Church Planting

We believe in planting new churches for a couple of reasons…

  1. The mission of God has been entrusted to local churches (Acts 13-15).
  2. Statistics show that the most effective method of mission is planting new churches who will be outposts for the gospel in a particular context. (Keller, Stetzer)

Because of these convictions, we are actively involved in planting new churches through our partnerships with SBTC Church Planting and Excel Leadership Network, and through our own direct engagement. A portion of our budget regularly goes to church planting, and we are also working to raise up, train, equip, send out, and support church planters.

We have a church planting residency, designed to give future planters on-the-ground training and experience before they go plant. It is a 12 month program designed around learning experiences, mentoring, reading & discussion, and practical implementation in Remedy Church ministries and teams and with other partner churches.
