We all embrace our calling from Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:18-20. This commission is, indeed, great — and sometimes overwhelming.

Our resources tend to influence how we respond to our calling.

  • Are there enough hours in our staff’s day to prioritize global missions?
  • How do we determine the most efficient strategy internationally?
  • Is it financially feasible for us to “go into all the world?”
These pastors needed ideas to help fulfill their church’s global mission. Today they work with Compassion’s network of churches to share God’s love around the world. We invite you to join them.
Pastor Rob Paterson

"I care about the world. I want to help my church care about the world, too. But first, there’s about 87 other things we have to figure out in order to sustain our church’s long-term health."

New Hope Community Church

Pastor Charles Whitaker

"Everybody wants to sow, give and invest in something that has a high return on investment — especially when it influences the world for Christ."

Charles Whitaker, Pastor
River of Life Church

Pastor Tommy Theisen

"We’re a growing church. When we become a real church with a real building we will do more things then that we cannot do now."

Step 1: Ready

Upon request, we’d like to begin — or continue — a conversation with you. Someone from Compassion’s Church Engagement team will email you to schedule a phone call. If someone invited you to this page, connect with that person.

Step 2: Set

Reply to the email to schedule a phone call. We’d love to hear about your church: How do you uniquely express Jesus’ love and grace in your church family, in your geographic neighborhood, and around the world?

When we understand your church’s dynamics, we can share ideas that invite your people into God’s field of harvest. We can be more effective together.

Step 3: GO!

It doesn’t take long to put your plan into action. Prioritize the Great Commission with an effective strategy without a big investment of resources. Let’s do ministry together.
