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

We currently have two families and one single woman from Remedy living in SE 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 orphan care and family restoration, coffee, and medical care, using legitimate business and humanitarian ventures for the purpose of mission.

We cannot put too much detail in writing, but there are several ways you can be part of the work (if you’d like to know more, just let us know!):

Give

A portion of our regular budget goes toward the work in SE Asia, and 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 in SE Asia as part of the team.

Pray

Possibly the most significant part 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.

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

Because of these convictions, we are actively involved in planting new churches through partnerships and 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 our first church planter, along with a team.

In addition to this, we are putting together a church planting residency to give future planters on-the-ground training and experience before they go plant. This will be a 9-18 month residency designed around learning experiences, mentoring, reading & discussion, and practical implementation in Remedy Church ministries and teams.
