The Missions ministry at Harvest Oakville is committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and making disciples of all nations. “And 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.’” Matthew 28:18-20
We fulfill this mission in three distinct ways:
- We support PEOPLE in the traditional missionary work of sharing the Good News.
- We work with PARTNERS to train, equip, and send out disciples to all nations.
- We PLANT churches who then do #1 and #2.
