We will be evangelizing, doing discipleship and planting a church. We will go to schools to evangelize youth and children; in the summer, we will be doing vacation Bible schools. Our first mission is to obey Jesus’ commands to evangelize, teach, baptize and make disciples. We will also be engaged in training leaders to help us with the ministry. Another pillar of our ministry will be to support families, especially those in the church, with skills and other resources so they can be autonomous.
