Global Mission (Acts 1:1-10)Andrew Palmer, 2 August, 2015
Part of the Missio Dei series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Andrew Palmer, NSW State Director, Global Interaction speaks on Global Mission. This can be a very confusing, even daunting subject. Indeed the word “mission” itself is often difficult to define. Yet it is the core subject of the Bible: the story about the God who is always in mission. Andrew will explore this through the final instructions Jesus gave to his followers before his ascension in Acts 1:1-10. He also speaks about Global Interaction, the Global Mission Agency of the Baptist Churches in Australia, which since 1864 has been sending men and women around the world to share the love of God in word, deed and community. Global Interaction is a 'least reached focus' mission with the firm conviction that Jesus changes everything. GI sends long term workers into the places where the gospel has never reached; working on culture and language and listening to host people in order to understand the ways God is already moving...and then they join in! The organisation has a deep desire is to empower communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.
