Why a Balanced Missions Ministry
Today’s conversation is with Melanie Williams. Melanie is the Missions Director at Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington. Melanie and Antioch Bible believe that a healthy missions ministry is one that finds a good balance between local and global outreach.
First, everyone in your church is called to missions in one way or another. Having a good balance of opportunities both locally and globally allows them to find that fit.
Second, as your members find their fit, they’re able to grow and mature by taking advantage of these different options.
And finally, never look as balance in a missions ministry as a ledger to measured. There are no cookie cutter answers. That means you have to slow down, take time to pray, and listen to the Holy Spirit.
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)
