Today’s conversation is with Delmy Guajardo. Delmy is the Missions Director at BattleCreek Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. BattleCreek Church is a multi-site church, which adds a level of complexity to developing a healthy missions ministry. Delmy shares her experience and wisdom on how to do this well.
First, find a single focus that’s at the heart of the church as a whole and build a larger missions effort off of it that every site can be a part of.
Second, get to know the DNA of each individual campus, and develop smaller missions efforts that allow each site to have a unique approach.
And finally, remember that every campus will look different, so as a missions pastor of a multi-site church, you have to be very flexible.
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)
