According to Exponential, this year “churches of all kinds are looking to use their current forms and assets as platforms to launch the more fluid, adaptive, and missional people-movements.” And as North American churches seek to mobilize its missional members, Avant can assist with the experience and tools needed to make church-based missions teams a reality. Avant’s Joint Venture program, designed to maximize the involvement of the local congregation in church-based missions teams, has already aided churches in mobilizing their members in unprecedented ways.
“Joint Venture is revolutionizing how our church is involved in global missions,” said Rick C., Team Leader for Rockpointe Community Church’s church planting team to Senegal. “No longer are we just sending money and short-term teams overseas … we are also sending our most valuable resource: our people. And in the process, our Joint Venture journey has challenged many in our congregation to evaluate their own level of obedience to Christ.”
At Exponential, Avant will be focusing on their campaign of “Your Church Can Plant Internationally and We Can Help.” To learn more about how Avant can help expand your church’s missional mindset globally, stop by the Avant Ministries booth at Exponential or click here.
