here, there, & everywhere
Our "here" is Tucson and Southern Arizona. We believe the best way to reach this area is to start new churches aimed at reaching people in the communities where they are planted. In 2015 we helped launch Authentic Life Church at Kolb and I-10. We are currently exploring the possibility of a church plant in the area of Valencia and I-10 and we're very excited that Authentic Life Church is going to be a part of this.
In addition to church planting, we have numerous partnerships with local and state mission organizations reaching Tucson, Pima County, and beyond. By working with and supporting such ministries as Arizona Baptist Children's Services, Christian Challenge at the University of Arizona, Caring Ministries, Gospel Rescue Mission, Tucson Refugee Ministry, and Worship Catalyst, we can accomplish a great deal more than we could on our own.
Our "there" is the unreached regions of the US. The western part of the US continues to be one of the greatest mission fields in our nation. Working with the North American Mission Board (NAMB) we're partnering with new churches in major cites in the West region of the US such as Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, Salt Lake City, Portland, and Seattle. Currently we are working with a new church in San Diego and are looking to partner with a new church in Las Vegas. We support these churches with our financial and prayer support but also with short mission trips aimed at helping them reach their communities.
Our "everywhere" is our global strategy. There are an estimated 4.5 billion people in the world who are lost and need Jesus. 1.5 billion of those have little to no access to the gospel. We know we can't reach everyone but we know we can reach some. Working wth the International Mission Board (IMB) we've identified an unreached people group in South Asia and have embraced the call to bring the good news to them. We're sending teams over every year and are working to enlist other churches so that people will have multiple mission trip opportunities each year.
