MMO helps us fulfill the Great Commission
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us to go and make disciples. In Acts 1:8, Jesus says we will be his witnesses beginning in Jerusalem and reaching to the ends of the earth. As we read “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth,” to us it translates “Marshfield, Missouri, the United States and the world.” As a local church, we want to have people serving in each of these mission areas. The Missouri Missions Offering is a key way in which all of our people can reach across our state with the gospel. MMO helps us to reach our “Judea.” Through MMO we are sharing Jesus with people all across Missouri. Through MMO we are helping to plant new churches, train pastors and church leaders, and we are sending more people into the harvest field of Missouri. MMO helps us to do what Jesus calls us to do.
