West Park Church - Global Outreach

 

GLOBAL MISSION

Global Outreach (GO) exists to fulfill the mission of West Park Church to expand God’s kingdom, in God’s power, by making disciples, planting and equipping local churches, and practically demonstrating the love of God in areas beyond our local mission.

VISION

  • Increase the participation of our people in West Park’s GO initiatives so they are intelligently informed, joyfully giving, and faithfully praying.
  • Focus our support.
  • Finance, to a significant level, a manageable number of global partners (missionaries).
  • Identify West Park members who should be encouraged, equipped, sent, and supported significantly as our first priority global partners.

FOCUS

  • Church planting and church equipping.
  • Support ministries, compassion and development, and short-term missions that seek to plant, build, and work alongside local churches.

PRIORITY AREAS

  • Canada – Quebec, First Nations, various ethnic groups, post-secondary, and secondary schools.
  • The 10/40 window.
  • Unreached people groups.
  • Areas at risk.
  • Fruitful areas around the globe.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

  • Our church leadership is committed to maintaining or increasing our level of financial support to each of our global partners, at least during each term of service, through the West Park Church budget.  Our GO Team makes annual recommendations regarding who should be supported and at what levels.  Our congregation is encouraged to give sacrificially to provide funding for our global partners.

PRAYER SUPPORT

  • Our congregation is encouraged to pray regularly for our global partners.  A West Park Prayer Guide is provided each month, which includes prayer items and praise reports from our global partners.  Global partner mail files (at the end of our church mail file system) contain update letters and prayer cards.

GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP TEAMS

  • A Global Partnership Team (GPT) provides the people of West Park Church with an opportunity to be directly involved in a particular global partner’s life and work.  Through communication with the global partner, prayer for them and their work, and other creative efforts, the GPT will assist and encourage the global partner.  The GPT can also serve as an advocate for the global partner to the West Park congregation and help host them when they visit West Park.
  • A GPT can consist of people who are part of an existing LifeGroup, a Bible study group, a special interest group, or even one family or individual who would like to come alongside a particular global partner.  Each GPT will have a leader who will help organize and coordinate the activities of that team to uniquely serve their global partner.  It would be helpful if the team leader is one who already has a trusted relationship with the global partner.

If you have questions about our global outreach initiatives or would like to get involved, please contact the church office at (519) 471-7460 or by email.
