Pam Seaburg is the Outreach Director at Victory Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Pam joins us to discuss why local and global outreach aren’t mutually exclusive, but in reality, must work together for a church to have a healthy missions ministry.
Today’s conversation with with Pam Seaburg. Pam is the Outreach Director of Victory Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Nothing drives Pam more in ministry than the overwhelming reality of God’s love for all mankind and that He has invited us to share in the mission of presenting this redeeming truth to all those “not yet in the fold”.
Pam shares how local and global outreach feed off of each other. They’re not mutually exclusive. When our church communities engage in local outreach, it grows into a passion for global outreach. But the same is also true. When people participate in short term ministry trips and other overseas missions opportunities, they come back committed to reaching their own communities for Christ.
Pam also shares how smaller churches can still have big impact when they remember that it isn’t the size of their missions budget that matters; their God is big and He desires every church to engage in global missions.
And finally, Pam reminds us that everything we do in our missions ministries flows from prayer. We have to be humble. Take time to listen. And always remember that God has a plan for our churches to be actively engaging in both local and global outreach.
WHAT IS THE MISSIONS PASTOR PODCAST?
Welcome to The Missions Pastor Podcast, presented by OneChild. OneChild is a global community of Child Champions that serves children in poverty so they can discover hope and reach their God-given potential. We believe that the local church has the message of Hope that the world desperately needs to hear. And in every episode, we highlight churches, pastors, and ministries who are working to bring that HOPE to hard places.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
